Spidey Fans See All The Telltale Signs Of Peter B. Parker's Doom In Across The Spider-Verse

"Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" is all anyone's talking about today. Sony debuted the trailer for the sequel to the studio's Academy Award-winning superhero movie, and it promises to dive deeper into the multiversal worlds of different Spider-people. 

The "Across the Spider-Verse" trailer reveals the return of Jake Johnson's Peter B. Parker, and it looks like life's been good to him since his promise to be a better husband at the end of the first movie. When he reunites with his protégé Miles, he's not alone, as we see him sporting a baby carrier on his chest. During the trailer afterparty with producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the two revealed a first look at Peter's daughter Mayday Parker. With the character becoming a fan-favorite version of Spider-Woman in the comics, many expect that "Across the Spider-Verse" is setting her up for a bigger role in the threequel.

"Across the Spider-Verse" also marks the first film in a two-part sequel. Part two, now titled "Beyond the Spider-Verse," has a 2024 release date and will continue the story where "Across the Spider-Verse" leaves off. Given the sequels' two-part nature, fans expect the first to end with a cliffhanger, and all signs point to Johnson's Peter B. Parker not making it to the third movie.

Fans certainly think Peter B. Parker will die in Across the Spider-Verse

Fans quickly took to Reddit to discuss the "Across the Spider-Verse" trailer and its many — and we mean many — Spider-people. It seems like a fan consensus that Jake Johnson's Peter B. Parker won't have the same happy ending he got in the first movie, with many fans thinking his death will be the big cliffhanger that leads us into "Beyond the Spider-Verse."

U/Sudden-Investment brought the idea up on Reddit, saying all signs point towards Peter B.'s death, which many thought would have been a part of the first movie. "Ah man, death signal to say the least. Grumpy Spider-Man gets his happy ending, family and kids, passes the torch to Miles," they said. "Shows up in the next one, never a good sign. Throw in what appears to be an organization of bad Spider-People and [the] question of being the good guys. Not looking good for Peter B." U/sildish2179 agreed, expanding the idea and suggesting that his death would be the cliffhanger heading into "Beyond the Spider-Verse," which would then include an older version of Mayday.

Reddit users agreed that all the signs are pointing at Peter B's upcoming death, regardless of whether they want to accept it. U/Thybro also pointed out the lack of Miles' dad Jefferson Davis in the trailer, suggesting he could also die in the sequel. Miles losing his father and father figure would bring out all of the emotions, and we don't think anyone's ready for that.
