The highly anticipated animated film, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, may feature a fan-favorite character from the divisive Phase 4 MCU show, She-Hulk. While many fans criticized the show’s CGI and plot, insider reports suggest that one character will return in the upcoming film.
Leap-Frog From She-Hulk Season 1
The character in question is Leap-Frog, who appeared in episode 8 of She-Hulk season 1. The character, played by Brandon Stanley, was seen as a comedic and silly character who harbored a grudge against Jennifer Walters and Daredevil. While some fans speculated that the character may appear in another MCU project, insider reports suggest that he will make a second appearance in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Leap-Frog: A Comic Book Villain
Created by Stan Lee and artist Gene Colan, Leap-Frog is a comic book villain who first appeared in Daredevil #25-26 (1967). Vincent Patilio, a toy inventor and scientist, was the first Leap-Frog. He turned to crime and created the mantle because he wanted to become rich. Later, his son Eugene Patilio inherited the mantle and renamed himself Frog-Man to dissociate himself from his father’s crimes. The She-Hulk show combined the character traits of Eugene and Vincent and was relatively accurate to the comics.
Fans were surprised by the news that Leap-Frog would make an appearance in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Many were hoping to see the return of Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Holland’s Spider Men instead. However, it is not confirmed if the character will have a significant role in the film or will only make a cameo appearance.
While nothing is confirmed yet, reports suggest that She-Hulk’s Leap-Frog will make an appearance in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Fans are eagerly anticipating the film’s release to see how the character fits into the story.
