Spider-Man Fans Keep Spotting Across The Spider-Verse Changes Between Theatrical & Digital Versions


  • Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s digital version has significant differences from its theatrical cut, including changes in dialogue and scene composition.
  • The digital cut of the film is considered the “canon version” due to audio mixing issues in the theatrical release.
  • Fans are closely comparing and analyzing the differences between the two versions, enhancing the rewatch value of the film.

Significant differences are getting heavily spotted in the digital version of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse from its theatrical cut. In the superhero landscape for 2023, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse became one of the bigger hits for the year, as Miles Morales’ multiverse adventure continued into the sequel installment. The story is far from over, though, as Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse will close out the trilogy, even though Sony has currently taken it off the release schedule.

While Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be coming out on home media on September 5, the Marvel adventure has already become available for digital download. However, the latest Spider-Verse installment has been gathering a lot of attention lately, as the digital version of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has revealed some significant differences from what audience members saw in theaters.

@Marmxcca13 brought up how the digital version, Miles “remembers Miguel saying that the Spider that bit him” wasn’t actually from this dimension. The theatrical cut, however, had Miles thinking to himself with text boxes, similarly to how it is done in comic format.

@WongUpdates noticed that the scene with the Lego Spider-Man has the web crawler fully masked up in the theatrical cut, whereas the digital version has him without his mask.

@jayjjalen noted that when looking at the theatrical and digital versions of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, “there are WAY too many differences.”

@chrisagwrites came with a thread where they listed a cut comparison between the two Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse cuts.

In one of @chrisagwrites’ listings, they pointed out that Miles says, “Sorry man, I’m going home” during his confrontation with Miguel, which is not the case on the digital version.

@chrisagwrites also showed how when Spider-Punk was first introduced during the other fight against Spot, the digital version added Miles with text above his head saying, “Hobie?”

One of the emotional scenes from the theatrical version had Miles react with a text box saying, “What?!” when he hears from Gwen that she would never see him again while talking to Jess Drew.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s digital release ended up using a different take by Jason Schwartzman for Spot’s origin story speech.

Ben Reily, a.k.a. Scarlet Spider, who went after Miles too, said in the theatrical cut, “This is called the sleeper hold, I’m using my bicep to constrict you!” but the digital cut instead has him saying, “I’ve got you trapped in my well-defined musculature.”

Why The Digital Version of Across the Spider-Verse Is Different To The Theatrical Cut

The examples listed above are only a handful of differences between Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s theatrical and digital cuts, as there are plenty more that fans are spotting. But this begs the question of why the digital cut has changed so much from the theatrical version, as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is becoming a rare case. This goes back to a big problem that was happening during the showings of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

When Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was in theaters, it was being reported by multiple theatergoers that there were issues with the audio mixing. This led to a new theatrical version being shown to help get rid of the audio issues that were being reported on initially, which is the same version found in the movie’s digital edition. That is why, in the end, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s digital cut is what is considered the “canon version.” As such, the digital edition provides a new viewing experience and adds to the movie’s rewatch value, evidenced by the many fans who are repeatedly viewing the film in order to work out every difference between the two versions.

Hopefully, the audio mixing issue the sequel faced won’t be an issue for when Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse hits theaters, whenever Sony ends up putting it back on the release schedule. Even though the changes for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse weren’t too game-changing, it is still impressive how noticeable it was among the fans. However, despite the theatrical and digital versions having differences, it doesn’t change the fact that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is still one of Hollywood’s best superhero films for 2023.
