Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduced other versions of the web swinging hero. Newly crowned Spider-Man, Miles Morales teams up with Peter B. Parker, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Noir, Spider-Ham and Peni Parker. However, of these alternate Spider heroes, one that should have been among them is the tokusatsu version known as “Supaidaman.” Created by Toei, this mech-riding Marvel hero is unique to Japan and has not seen much action since the 1970s aside from a shoutout in the 2018 pop culture flick “Ready Player One. Producer Phil Lord has some ideas about bringing the tokusatsu Spider-Man back in a potential sequel. But there’s a catch. This will only happen if Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse makes $200 million at the U.S. box office. The film has earned $114 million in the U.S. and $224 million worldwide.
