Oscar Isaac brilliantly played Miguel O’Hara in the animated Spider-Verse, but through incredible new fan art, Isaac is transformed into Spider-Man 2099.

Ever since the sequel to the 2018 mega-hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse swung onto the big screen a little over a week ago, fans and critics alike have been buzzing non-stop about its visually stunning world and larger-than-life characters.

There is a lot to love about the new movie, but the talk of the town is Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099, also known as Miguel O’Hara, who’s undergone quite an eye-catching transformation thanks to the creative minds working behind the scenes.

In the much-awaited sequel, Across the Spider-Verse, Miguel comes across as more menacing than his original counterpart – bulkier, brawnier, and all things intimidating. It’s amazing to see the character make his big-screen debut and fans are eager to see him make the leap to the live-action universe. It remains unclear when or if that might happen, but thanks to one talented artist we have an idea of just how amazing Isaac could be in the role.

What Oscar Isaac could look like as a live-action Spider-Man 2099

Instagram artist Josh (@clements.ink) has taken the opportunity to reimagine Oscar Isaacs, the voice actor for Miguel, as the character himself. His blue suit adorned with intricately added detailing makes it clear that the artist’s strokes have given us a beefed-up Spidey to marvel at.

One of the standout aspects of the film, undoubtedly, is Isaac’s electrifying portrayal of Spider-Man 2099. Despite viewers initially rooting for him, Miguel soon evolves into an antagonistic force, dropping his “good guy” persona by the second act. His unfaltering dedication to preserving the sanctity of the Multiverse often blurs the line between villain and hero, taking viewers on a roller-coaster of emotions.

Intriguingly, according to the film’s producers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Spider-Man 2099 underwent the most changes during production, turning him into a more fleshed-out character. This stemmed from the realization that the character was coming across as too abrasive, which led to the development of a tragic backstory to humanize him.

These adjustments brought depth to Isaac’s character, transforming him into a figure traumatized by his past and clinging to orthodoxy as his only refuge. This narrative direction, inspired by Oscar’s own experiences within the exile community of Cubans, gives Spider-Man 2099 a relatable aura, making viewers root for him despite his actions.

As Spider-Man 2099 continues his tumultuous journey in the upcoming sequel, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, we can only wait and see whether this fascinating character will ultimately redeem himself, joining forces with Miles, Gwen, and the rest of the Spider gang against the real villain of the Multiverse – The Spot.
