Oscar Isaac reveals that his Spider-Man 2099 is the only repetition of the superhero who is completely serious in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
The most awaited sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse which won the Oscars will see Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) once again together with different Spider-people from across the multiverse to fight off villains.
Glimpse Across The Spider-Verse
In a reunion with Gwen Stacey’s Spider-Woman (Hailee Steinfeld) and Peter B. Parker’s Spider-Man (Jake Johnson), Miles will also meet new alternate renditions of the character, most notably Jessica Drew’s Spider-Woman (Issa Rae) and Miguel O’Hara’s futuristic Spider-Man 2099 (Isaac).
With Across the Spider-Verse‘s release date now scheduled for June 2, 2023, it will act as the first installment of a two-part story, with the third installment, now titled Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, releasing in March 2024.
Isaac was first introduced as Spider-Man 2099 in a post-credits scene for Into the Spider-Verse.
When Sony released a short snippet from the upcoming Spider-Verse sequel back in December, the character once again returned to the franchise, establishing himself as a major element of the story. But this time, Spider-Man 2099 was seemingly fighting Miles as the two jumped between dimensions.
How does Oscar Isaac define his Spider-Man 2099?
Isaac has now divulged a bit more about the personality of his incarnation, the actor revealed that Spider-Man 2099 is “the one Spider-Man that doesn’t have a sense of humor,” meaning that he stands out as the only version who doesn’t crack jokes. See Isaac’s full quote below:
“It’s been really fun working on that with Phil Lord and Kemp Powers. The thing I can say is, what makes this character so funny is that he’s the one Spider-Man that doesn’t have a sense of humor. Because all of them act like– they’re like wisecracks, right? Everybody wisecracks, except this guy just doesn’t. He’s a very serious Spider-Man.”
In the recently released first 15 minutes of Across the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man 2099 is seen fighting Vulture in Gwen’s universe before calling for backup showing how seriously he takes his superhero work. Though this doesn’t change the fact that Isaac’s insistence that this lack of humor is “what makes this character so funny” promises the potential for much comedic conflict between Spider-People.
