Fans are frustrated by the Spider-Punk redesign in Across the Spider-Verse’s home release changes

Spread MCU News

Viewers have been noticing changes to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse since Sony Pictures discontinued the digital download of the film in August, and some people think the most recent change is the most perplexing of them all. Since Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse won’t be in theatres for quite some time, Sony Pictures is putting all of its energy into making sure that the second sequel is absolutely what they had in mind. A few hundred changes were made to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which had its digital debut on August 8, 2023, according to fans. All the updates have been collected by one X user in one post, and the most recent one is for Daniel Kaluuya’s Hobie Brown / Spider-Punk. The lighting and colouring on Hobie in the two versions differs at the scene when Miguel O’Hara, played by Oscar Isaac (several of his movie moments have also been changed), explains canon events. While the character is depicted in more natural colours in the home edition of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, his face is entirely lit in neon in the film version. However, his hair is now also framed in neon.

In an interesting twist, the digital version of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse takes a different tack in a different shot of the same scene. Whereas in the theatrical version, Spider-Punk is primarily depicted in natural, warm colours with only neon lines surrounding his figure, Hobie is completely covered in neon blue and purple and has some sort of script or code covering his entire body in the home release. The fan who compared the two takes on the same scene acknowledged that the character may have undergone other changes in subsequent takes, but he hadn’t discovered them. “I detest that there are so many pointless modifications…On X, a supporter said on the shift, “Like this is really irritating and infuriating at this point. They “ruined everything,” according to a another fan on X, who also added, “I’m so sick of them altering everything about this movie. Just let it rock because it was already great.

The choice by Sony Pictures to make so many changes to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse after it had already been released continues to perplex viewers, but the modifications to Spider-Punk stand out in particular since many think they aren’t even for the better. The representation of the character’s colour is now erratic, and Hobie himself appears to be an outsider. The language between Ben Reilly and Miles Morales, Miguel O’Hara’s introduction scene, Gwen Stacy’s introductory sequence, and her statement to Spider-Man in another scene, are among the larger changes that fans have previously found.
