Does Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse have a post-credits scene?

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is a big, bold, ambitious film. The long-awaited sequel to 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse not only reaches the same visual and narrative heights as its predecessor but blasts past them — delivering a stylistic experience that is as overwhelming as it is rejuvenating. In case that wasn’t enough, Across the Spider-Verse also ends in a way that may be exciting to some and confounding to others, but is guaranteed to start discussions among everyone who sees it.

Along the way, Across the Spider-Verse packs in more than a few surprises, but do the film’s numerous shocking moments include a scene or two during its end credits? Here’s what viewers should know heading into the blockbuster’s release this week.

Is there a post-credits scene in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse?

No, a post-credits scene is not included at the end of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. In what will likely come as a surprise to many, the film finishes with a “to be continued…” comic book panel, and then it lets its credits roll in a more or less uninterrupted fashion. As a matter of fact, the closest thing Across the Spider-Verse has to a post-credits scene is a title card that pops up halfway through its end credits, which announces, “Miles Morales will return in Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.”

Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse is already set to hit theaters on March 29, 2024, which means viewers will have to wait a little less than a year to see the second half of Across the Spider-Verse’s dramatic story. Those same viewers don’t have to worry about sitting through the end credits for Across the Spider-Verse if they don’t want to, though. If you choose to duck out once the film cuts to black, you won’t miss anything.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is now playing in theaters.

If there’s one thing Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse isn’t lacking, it’s Easter eggs. Whether it be the film’s brief trip to the same universe as the Venom movies or its multiple references to Sony’s popular Spider-Man video games, Across the Spider-Verse repeatedly proves that it isn’t afraid to pay homage to the various other superhero films and titles that have come before it. The movie even packs in a brief but noteworthy reference to the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Most of Across the Spider-Verse’s biggest Easter eggs appear during its trip to Nueva York, the home city of Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac). The film’s detour there gives it the chance to dive into the minutiae of the multiverse in a way that neither it nor 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse had previously.

Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse better than Into the Spider-Verse?

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse had a tall task ahead of it. The new film from Sony Pictures had to follow up on one of the greatest superhero movies of all time in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. While Across pushes the boundaries of cinema even further than its predecessor, is that enough to top the remarkable achievement of the original?
Both movies possess unique and groundbreaking visuals

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse once again follows Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), a teenager in New York City who likes to sling webs in his free time. Miles has been his universe's one and only Spider-Man for over a year, and he's honed his Spidey skills significantly more than when audiences last saw him in 2018. Now, Miles is thrust into the reality of Spider-Man; how can he save everyone without losing himself? When his multiversal friend and fellow Spider-person Gwen Stacy returns to Miles' Earth on a mission, the entire multiverse is at risk of deteriorating. And it's all because of Miles.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is a massive film — so massive, in fact, that its story can’t be told in just 2 hours and 16 minutes. Instead, the long-awaited sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse ends with, of all things, a title card that literally says, “To be continued…” Fortunately, while some may be disappointed by the unfinished way that Across the Spider-Verse ends, it doesn’t cut to black without laying the groundwork for a sequel that certainly seems primed to be the biggest animated superhero film ever.

That sequel not only already has a title, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, but also a March 29, 2024 release date. That means comic book fans have just a little less than a year to wait until they finally get to see the full arc of Miles Morales’ (Shameik Moore) latest web-slinging big-screen adventure. Although it’d be foolish at this point to outright predict what surprises may lie in store in Beyond the Spider-Verse, too, it’s definitely been set up to be a bigger blockbuster than both Across the Spider-Verse and its 2018 predecessor.
