The latest trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse had confirmed a clash between Miles and a multiverse of Spider-Men, but we had no look at the film’s alleged main villain, The Spot.
While we don’t know what The Spot looks like animated, we do have a teaser image of him running into Miles in a bodega. Check this out:

Though the Spot looks like he’s some kind of cow-person, he actually has a set of very crazy powers in that his body is covered in multidimensional portals.He can either absorb blows and have Spidey’s hits land somewhere else, or he can also conjure portals outside of his body and throw other people in.
We don’t know exactly how the Spot is going to be a threat in the film, but I think he would have to be involved if the main issue has something to do with the multiverse. My guess is that the Spot is an unwitting villain, and Miles and Gwen will know this; but the Spider-Men have decided that they may have to kill the Spot instead of trying to help him.
If you ask me, my theory is kind of a cookie-cutter hero’s dilemma, and I would be much happier if we got a story that nobody would see coming. Hopefully the Spot gets his time to shine in the next Spider-Verse trailer—whenever that drops.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is set for a release in cinemas on June 2, 2023.
