Take us to Earth-50101.
Sony recently released the spectacular trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One). After watching the trailer, fans wonder if we’ll get to see Pavitr Prabhakar in the upcoming movie. Well, here’s everything you need to know about it.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One) will begin Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy’s two-part journey across the multiverse.
Sony has been working on Across the Spider-Verse since 2018, and it was initially scheduled to release in April 2022. However, the studio delayed the release date to October 2022 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the first Across the Spider-Verse trailer, we see Spider-Man 2099, Miguel O’Hara. The original Into the Spider-Verse movie introduced us to Miguel, played by Oscar Isaac, in the post-credit scene. So, it was good to see Spider-Man 2099 in the trailer, confirming that he’ll play a significant role in the upcoming movie. However, what’s interesting is that the trailer also hinted at another Spider-Man variant, Pavitr Prabhakar.
Possibility of Pavitr Prabhakar Appearing in Across the Spider-Verse
Across the Spider-Verse trailer shows Miles arriving in a universe that looks a lot like India. On top of that, we hear Indian music along with the use of Hindi words. Interestingly, Miguel’s device confirms that the universe with the Indian architecture is Earth-50101 (Via: Screen Rant). Interestingly, in Marvel comics, Earth-50101 is the reality where Pavitr Prabhakar, an Indian boy from Mumbai, becomes Spider-Man.
Pavitr gets his spider powers from a Yogi who thinks that the boy has the will to fight the evil in the world. Like Peter Parker, Pavitr takes his new powers lightly at first. However, after his uncle gets killed while saving a woman, Pavitr understands the responsibility that comes with this power.
Of course, in the trailer, Spider-Man 2099 grabs Miles and takes to him to Earth-928. However, after Sony teased the Indian theme in the trailer, there’s a chance that we’ll see more of Earth-50101 in the movie. Miles might spend some more time web-swinging on Indian architecture. And if that’s the case, we might actually see Indian Spider-Man, Pavitr Prabhakar, getting a few scenes with Miles.
