The Spider-Verse has expanded once more, swinging its way onto Netflix’s screen! The long-awaited sequel to the 2018 animated Oscar-winning sensation, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse made its grand debut on October 31, 2023, and fans are ecstatic!
Our favorite web-slinging heroes and heroines are back in action, ready to traverse the mind-bending, multi-dimensional world of Spider-People. Yet, amidst the breathtaking battles and mesmerizing animations, one burning question has captivated our minds: just how much have our beloved characters aged since we last saw them?
Prepare to embark on an enthralling journey as we unravel the age mysteries of Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, and a host of other beloved characters below.
In our first foray into the Spider-Verse with the 2018 film, Miles Morales grappled with the responsibilities of being a teenage hero, aged around 14 or 15. Fast forward to the sequel, Across the Spider-Verse, which unfolds “a year and four months” later, nudging Miles into the realm of 15 or 16 years old.
In the real world, Miles Morales is given voice by Shameik Moore, who, as of November 2023, is 28 years old.
The enigmatic and capable Gwen Stacy, “fifteen months” senior to Miles, has evolved alongside him. When she first swung into our screens in Into the Spider-Verse, she likely stood at 15-16 years old. With the passage of time in Across the Spider-Verse, she matures to a more assured 17 or 18 years of age.
In reality, Hailee Steinfeld, the talented voice behind Gwen Stacy, celebrated her 27th birthday on December 11, 2023, bringing life to the character’s journey.
Peter B. Parker
Our seasoned and somewhat weathered Peter B. Parker was 38 years old in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. As we swing into Across the Spider-Verse, the timeline places him around a more seasoned 40-year-old.
In the world off-screen, Jake Johnson, the voice breathing life into Peter B. Parker, is 45 years old as of December 2023, lending a mature perspective and mentorship to Miles.
If you haven’t already dived into the heart-pounding sequel to the 2018 smash hit, what’s holding you back? Swing into action now because Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is finally available for streaming on Netflix!
