Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse didn’t always have a LEGO universe

Co-director of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Kemp Powers has revealed that the movie’s

sequence wasn’t always on the cards – and only happened thanks to a 14-year-old fan.

Spotted by redditor u/worth_the_monologue, the interview on YouTube reveals that while there originally was no

sequence in the film, seeing a viral fan trailer changed that fairly quickly. Kemp Powers explained: “When we released our first teaser trailer for this film, someone recreated the entire trailer in LEGO.” 

He went on to add that: “We found out that Preston was 14 in Canada, and we had to work it all out. But yeah, we added that LEGO sequence and Preston, the same kid who did our teaser, he actually animated that.” The incredible original fan trailer made by Preston Mutanga (@FG_Artist) can be watched here.

In the interview, we also learn that LEGO Spider-Man is ‘actually the only Spider-person in the movie that Miguel (O’Hara) compliments’, which for those who have seen the film will understand is quite the achievement, given just how many Spider variants there are.

At the moment, we unfortunately aren’t seeing many LEGO Spider-Verse sets that are actually based on the films, but you can at least collect a handful of the characters in current and retired Marvel Spider-Man sets. We’ll have to wait to see if any more sets directly inspired by the film join them.
