Spider-Man could make an appearance in the second season of Invincible. Fans discovered clues about a potential crossover in the season two trailer, which was released earlier this year. The clip contains a subtle reference to Marvel Team-Up issue 14, where both superheroes make an appearance. While Mark Grayson is scrolling through his phone, the cover of a crossover comic book is briefly seen.
While this could be just a subtle Easter egg from Skybound, the team behind the series, fans have convinced themselves that the shot of Mark’s phone is a legitimate hint at Spider-Man’s appearance in Invincible season two. The series official Twitter account humorously responded to screengrabs from the trailer, saying, “I have no idea what that is!!!”
Josh Keaton’s Mystery Role
Adding weight to the potential crossover is the inclusion of Josh Keaton in the cast in an undisclosed role. The actor has voiced Spider-Man/Peter Parker in several projects, including the animated series The Spectacular Spider-Man, and the video games Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, and Spider-Man: Edge of Time. While Keaton’s involvement doesn’t guarantee that Spider-Man will appear in Invincible, it is an interesting coincidence.
Another plausible explanation for the potential Spider-Man crossover with Invincible lies with Amazon. In the last year, the streamer has joined forces with Sony and Marvel to produce several shows exclusively for Prime Video. They are working on a live-action series connected to Silk and Spider-Man Noir. The existing ties between Amazon, Sony, and Marvel could pave the way for the crossover.
When Does Invincible Season 2 Premiere?
While the potential appearance of Spider-Man in Invincible season two remains uncertain, fans can still look forward to brand new episodes. The second season of the adult animated series is set to premiere on November 3 on Prime Video, with new episodes released every week. The show will take a hiatus in December and resume its second season at an unspecified date in early 2024.
At the end of season one, Allen the Alien (voiced by Seth Rogen) warned about the impending arrival of the Viltrumites after learning of Nolan’s failure to comply with their commands. This could potentially put Nolan’s life at risk, as the Viltrumites may seek retribution for his insubordination. Meanwhile, Allen emphasized that Mark has a crucial role to fulfill, urging him to join forces with the Coalition of Planets.

Adapted for television by Robert Kirkman, a Spider-Man-less Invincible debuted on Amazon Prime Video in March 2021. The show is based on the Image Comics series of the same name by Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley. The story follows Mark Grayson, who, under the guidance of his father, Omni-Man, becomes the most powerful superhero on the planet.
However, Mark often struggles to balance his ordinary life as a teenager and the responsibilities of being a superhero. This predicament compels Mark to prove himself as a hero, attempting to live up to the legacy of his father. The show features a talented voice cast, including Steven Yeun, Sandra Oh, and J. K. Simmons as the Grayson family, while the remaining cast members take on recurring roles.
