A brand new set of upcoming Hasbro toys from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse reveals a close look at villains Kingpin and Prowler. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an animated film that focuses on Miles Morales, a teenage boy from Brooklyn, as he grows into being Spider-Man. He’s taken under the wing of Peter Parker, a Spider-Man from an alternate universe. Miles will have to team up with him and other alternate Spider-Men including Gwen Stacy aka Spider-Gwen to take on a threat to all realities.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stars The Get Down's Shameik Moore as Miles Morales. The cast is rounded out by Jake Johnson as Peter Parker, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, Mahershala Ali as Prowler and Liev Schreiber as Morlun. Nicholas Cage will reportedly be voicing Spider-Man Noir. More cast members are expected to be added to represent the different versions of Spider-Men Miles encounters on his journey.
Images of the Hasbro toy line show both Prowler and Kingpin, who will play antagonists of Miles in the film. Kingpin was only shown in silhouette in the most recent trailer. Prowler will appear in costume, instead of as his alter-ego Miles’ uncle Aaron Davis. He is a six-inch figure with what looks like flames coming out of his boots. A six-inch figure of Kingpin isn’t in this release. Instead, he appears as a cardboard cutout in a giant playset that also features a large Green Goblin. The playset, which is called the Super Collider Playset, includes a Miles Morales figure that controls a projectile launcher to shoot the Kingpin cutout and Green Goblin. Take a look at these toys below:
Six-inch figures of Miles Morales’ Spider-Man, Peter Parker’s Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, and Prowler will be in the first rollout of the toy line coming out in Fall 2018. Each figure will retail for $10 and contain seven points of articulation. The Super Collider Playset will also be released this Fall and will cost $40. Also included in the Fall 2018 line are a $60 Shock Strike Miles Morales figure that can be controlled by a wrist gauntlet, a 12-inch Miles Morales figure from the Titan Hero Series, a Hero FX Mask of Miles' Spider-Man, a Super Web Slinger and and NERF! Assembler Gear. Mission Gear packs that include plastic half-masks and small dart-launching web shooters based on classic Spider-Man, Miles' Spider-Man, and Spider-Gwen are part of the toyline. All of these toys will be available at major retailers and on Hasbro Toy Shop.
The Super Collider Playset is inspired by the film teasing a showdown between Kingpin and Miles’ Spider-Man. From this first look at his character, we can see that the animators have really leaned into portraying the villain’s immense size. Miles will also most likely encounter Prowler as an antagonist instead of just his relative due to the character being in costume. The cast of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will appear at Sony’s San Diego Comic-Con panel on Friday, July 20th before the film hits theaters in December.
