Three Ways Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Retcons The First Movie

l intro 1685746752

The final retcon in “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” relates to The Spot’s (Jason Schwartzman) appearance before transforming into the multiversal villain.

One of the biggest reveals in the sequel is that The Spot was technically in “Into the Spider-Verse” as Alchamax scientist Dr. Jonathan Ohnn – he’s the one that Miles (Shameik Moore) hits with a bagel in the movie. It’s hard to make out many details in his brief, unnamed appearance, but Ohnn looks like a regular guy with short hair. However, Phil Lord and Chris Miller did some retconning for “Across the Spider-Verse,” showing that, before his Spot transformation, Ohnn had long hair and an equally long beard. However, his original look does appear in the sequel, located in a photograph in his apartment.

During their interview on the podcast “ReelBlend,” Lord said that if he could change some details from “Into the Spider-Verse,” one would be to give Ohnn a cool beard and hairstyle. The creative duo also revealed that it was not a coincidence that, in the first movie, Miles hit Ohnn with a bagel, one of the only breakfast foods with a hole in it. “It was by design,” Miller said, while Lord teased similar story ideas from writer David Callaham coming in “Beyond the Spider-Verse.”
