Naruto fan suggests Boruto influenced Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

A passionate Boruto fan has sparked discussions online by suggesting that the popular anime series may have served as a significant inspiration for the highly anticipated animated film, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

Taking to Twitter, a user named dasien meticulously compares screenshots from both Boruto: Naruto Next Generations and Across the Spider-Verse to present their case. They highlight various visual similarities between the two properties, citing scenes where characters like Miles and Gwen in the Spider-Verse and Boruto and Sarada in Boruto are shown sitting next to each other, moments where both Miles and Boruto fall into vibrant and colorful backgrounds, and instances where the young heroes strike triumphant poses.

In addition to the connections drawn between Boruto and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, dasien also suggests that the Boruto anime had an influence on an epic fight sequence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While opinions on the animation quality of Boruto vary, with some praising its visuals and others expressing criticism, the fan’s analysis invites a fresh perspective on potential cross-pollination between the anime and the Spider-Verse movie.

For those unfamiliar, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations serves as a sequel to the immensely popular Naruto franchise. The series made its debut in April 2017, under the direction of industry veteran Noriyuki Abe (known for his work on Black Butler: Book of Circus). Set after the events of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, Boruto follows the journey of Naruto’s son, Boruto Uzumaki, as he navigates the path to becoming a skilled ninja while grappling with the complexities of his relationship with his father. Beyond the anime, Boruto has expanded into light novels, video games, and a manga series.

On the other hand, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse made its wide theatrical release on June 2 and has already achieved remarkable success at the box office. The film has exceeded the opening weekend earnings of its predecessor, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, amassing over $120 million. This places it as the second-highest opening weekend for 2023 and the third-highest debut for any previous Spider-Man film. Across the Spider-Verse has garnered widespread acclaim from both critics and fans, earning nominations in the Best Animation/Family category at this year’s Golden Trailer Awards. However, some viewers have voiced concerns about audio issues, which were recently acknowledged by co-writer Phil Lord on social media.

Continuing the multiverse-spanning narrative of Into the Spider-Verse, the sequel follows Miles Morales as he embarks on another thrilling adventure across dimensions. The film boasts an impressive ensemble cast, with Shameik Moore reprising his role as Miles and Oscar Isaac joining as Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099.

For fans eager to experience the animated brilliance of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the film is currently playing in theaters. Meanwhile, Boruto enthusiasts can catch the anime on the streaming platform Crunchyroll, immersing themselves in the world of ninja, family legacies, and exciting battles.
