Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has generated huge interest since the trailer was released. Following the massive success of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ in 2021, fans are eager to return to the Spider-Man universe. This movie holds particular significance for India as Pavitr Prabhakar, the Indian Spider-Man, will make his big-screen debut.
The Hindi and Punjabi versions of the film will feature cricketer Shubman Gill’s voice, which will make Pavitr’s character even more special for Indian viewers. Known for his impressive batting skills, Gill has a significant following among cricket enthusiasts, and his appearance as Pavitr Prabhakar in ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ is expected to win over cricket fans across India.
Shubman Gill, who has admitted that Spider-Man is his favourite superhero, has made a significant foray into the Spider-Man universe. He is the first sports personality to lend his voice to a film, and not just any film, but one of the biggest franchises in Hollywood.
Speaking about lending his voice to Pavitr Prabhakar, Shubman shared, “I have grown up watching Spider-Man, and he is one of the most relatable superheroes. Since the movie will be debuting the Indian Spider-Man for the first time on screen, getting to be the voice of our Indian Spider-Man, Pavitr Prabhakar, in the Hindi and Punjabi languages was such a remarkable experience for me. Already, I feel superhuman. I am eagerly anticipating the release of this movie.”
The film is written by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Dave Callaham. It is directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson. The music is composed by Daniel Pemberton.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be released on June 2 in cinemas in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Gujarati, Marathi, Punjabi and Bengali.
