    Lost count of times you said "Actually". Might want to actually read from an actually prepared script instead of actually ad-libbing. Actually.

    @8 - Coverage I've read said the only ones that wouldn't be appearing would be any of the Sony owned Spider-Men. So basically the two versions from the Raimi and Webb films and the one from the Spectacular Spider-Man show (sucks that Spec Spidey can't be used.) They also said that Ultimate Peter won't be used because he's still dead, and that the symbiotes won't make an appearance, though that makes no sense because two Spider-Men wearing both the Venom and Carnage symbiote are on the poster.

    Nick Lowe and Marvel said they are using as many Spider-Men as they can "legally". Hence the Electric Company Spider-Man, the old 70s TV series or 90s series Spider-Man can be used. Some are just throw away and some have big parts. Electric Company Spider-Man is supposed to be used a bit in this arc but Peter, Kaine, Miguel, Mayday, Miles, Jessica Drew, Julia Carpenter and Anya are more the main cast.

    @5 - All of the characters in the poster are listed in the link below. The Shakespeare Spider-Man is from the Spider-Man 1602 mini from a few years back.

    So I'm looking at the poster and a couple of the sample pages from Spider-Verse and I'm thinking, have I really seen these Spidey's before, and if not, where did they appear? Shakespeare Spidey? WHAH?!? And in the poster - there's a Spidey with Doc Ock arms...don't remember that. Another one from the poster - one that looks like it's out of the Knights of the Round Table. Is there some sort of list indicating where each Spidey appeared?

    @2 - He's a supporting character in the Spider-Verse event that's taking place in the Spider-titles this fall.
