It’s not like we need another reason to think of actor Oscar Isaac (Dune) as a superhero, but we’re not arguing with anyone if they want to dream up another role that he’d be perfect to play.
Recently, fan art hit online featuring Isaac as the live-action version of his character Spider-Man 2099. Isaac lent his voice to the character in the post-credit scene of the 2018 Oscar-winning animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and will reprise the voice role later this year in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man 2099 is a version of the web-slinger from the year 2099. When he’s not Spider-Man 2099, the superhero goes by the name Miguel O’Hara, an Irish-Mexican geneticist whose DNA is rewritten with the genetic code of a spider. The character was first introduced by Marvel Comics in 1992.
Although Isaac’s role as Spider-Man 2099 later this year will once again be an animated version of the character, it’s no surprise that Marvel fans can already envision what a live-action take on the character might look like.
With so many versions of Spider-Man recently featured in the live-action sequel Spider-Man: No Way Home, it’s obvious fans would like to see the superhero in different forms – whether that’s Miles Morales or Spider-Gwen or Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099. Apparently, the more Spider-Man characters, the better.
Who knows what kind of crossovers can happen in the future, but if Isaac can find his way into a live-action film, the Spider-Verse will become even more interesting. Oscar Isaac, of course, already has a Marvel gig besides his work on the animated Spider-Verse movies. He’s playing the title superhero character on the Disney+ series Moon Knight, which is scheduled to be released sometime this year.
