Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has been one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2022. The sequel to the 2018 critically-acclaimed animated movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the upcoming film promises to be even more exciting and action-packed. Fans of the franchise cannot wait to see what the famous web-slinger and his many alternate versions will get up to next. However, what many may not know is that the movie will feature a Spider-Man from India, and the story behind his creation is just as thrilling as the film itself. In this article, we will explore how the directors of the movie brought Spider-Man India to life and what it means for the world of Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is a joy ride that keeps giving. Each meticulously crafted frame has a myriad of Easter eggs for the ones looking and is a visual delight for a casual onlooker. The movie introduces many new Spider-People and a handful of new universes. One among them is Pavitra Prabhakar aka Spider-Man India from Earth a.k.a. Mumbattan, a reimagination of New York City and Mumbai. The character is a new fan favorite and represents a world that is quite different from the traditional superhero aesthetic. The directors of the movie Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson recently told Variety about bringing the character to life.
Speaking about the making of one of the most exciting chase sequences of the new feature where Pavitra Prabhakar (Karan Soni), Miles (Shameik Moore), and Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) are chasing the Spot (Jason Schwartzman) across the city to prevent him from using Mumbattan’s supercollider, the trio revealed that “We had worked on that sequence for a while, and we finally got it to a place where logically and from a staging perspective, it was doing all the things.” But something was amiss, then they got an email from some Indian members of the animation team based at Sony Pictures Imageworks in Vancouver, who believed Pavitr, “doesn’t feel authentic,” Powers recalls. “He doesn’t feel aspirational.”
Pavitra Prabhakar Spoke to the Spirit of Collaboration of the Movie
The directors were quick to assemble a “writers room of Indian and Indian American writers,” Powers tells. This room included Soni and comedian Hasan Minhaj. “We literally re-broke the entire sequence and reimagined the Pav character. And then Chris and Phil very quickly rewrote the entire script for that section so that Pav’s characterization completely changed,” Powers revealed. The rework made Pavitra Prabhakar a joyous and optimistic character with a lot of charisma. “Of the new characters that are in the film, I think Pav is one that, collectively, we’re the most proud of,” Powers says adding,
“It really spoke to the spirit of collaboration on this movie. You have to be open in this process to criticism and to good ideas from wherever they come. And that really speaks to the amount of problem solving that we had to go through to make sure that that character who’s supposed to represent a very specific part of the world felt authentic to people from that part of the world.”
Certainly, from the Amar Chitra Katha (very popular Indian Comics) inspired world, to the distinction between chai and chai tea, to Pavitra using his web with lattu (hand band) and donning white dhoti (pants) and jooti’s (shoes) the depiction suits the Indian version of character well.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is in theaters now.
In conclusion, the upcoming release of “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is set to be an exciting addition to the Spider-Man franchise, especially with the introduction of Spider-Man India. The directors, Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson, have revealed how the idea for this character came to life. They wanted to showcase diverse versions of Spider-Man from across the globe, and Spider-Man India was a perfect fit. This portrayal is unique as it incorporates Indian culture and traditions, making it relatable to a wider audience. With several other versions of Spider-Man set to appear, including Spider-Man 2099, fans of the franchise can expect a thrilling adventure that is sure to surpass expectations.
