The studio has partnered with platform developers 8th Wall and Trigger to create a new Spidey-themed AR program. Via The Hollywood Reporter, it’s conveniently titled Spider-Verse Web AR Experience.
Rather than downloading an app, users can visit intothespiderverse-ar.com on any mobile device to access the program. It offers the ability to insert Spider-Man into your photos and then share those pictures with friends. So far, it looks as though you can only access the Miles Morales version of Spider-Man. But in the weeks leading up to the movie’s premiere, it’s possible that 8th Wall and Trigger will include more of the film’s central characters. These include Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, and Peni Parker.
Spider-Man is a perfect match for AR not only because his acrobatic moves and iconic poses lend themselves well to the format, but because he’s one of the most relatable superheroes. We’re excited to collaborate with 8th Wall, Amazon Sumerian and Trigger on Spider-Verse Web AR Experience and bring it to all – and new – Spider-Man fans.
