Included with the tweet announcing the character and the cast, a frame from the movie was included. In the frame we see The Spot lunging at Miles who is sticking his foot out for a kick in defense. Although, we can already see he is not prepared for the villain as Miles’ leg is going right through a spot on The Spot’s chest and is kicking Spider-Gwen in the background. The tweet is accompanied by text reading:
