A great addition to the movie is the introduction of Spider-Man India (voiced by Karan Soni). The Indian version of the web-slinger was initially conceived by the renowned Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray when he had a conversation with Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee. In early 2000, comic book artist-and-writer duo Sharad Devarajan and Jeevan Kang worked on the limited-issue comic book of the same name. In recent years, Spider-Man India has seen tremendous popularity among comic book fans; definitely one of the reasons why the ‘Across the Spider-Verse’ filmmakers decided to add the character to the story.
