Have you heard the news? Burger King is releasing a special edition Spider-Man Whopper inspired by the movie Across the Spider-Verse! It’s amazing what red food coloring can do to a bun.
Burger King is taking their food crossovers to the next level with a Spider-Man-themed Whopper in honor of the new animated film, “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.” This fast-food chain has a history of creating unique buns, such as a black bun for Halloween and an orange bun for a spicy version. However, this time they are going above and beyond by introducing a Whopper with a red bun to match Spider-Man’s iconic suit color.
The upcoming movie, Across the Spider-Verse, is set to hit theaters on June 2, 2023. It’s directed by Justin K. Thompson, Joaquim Dos Santos, and Kemp Powers. This film will come before the third installment of the trilogy, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, which is slated to be released on March 29, 2024.
Available at participating restaurants nationwide from May 15 through June 21, the “Spider-Verse” Whopper features a red bun topped with black sesame seeds, drawing inspiration from the amazing web-slinger himself, along with melted Swiss cheese and all the traditional Whopper toppings – including juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, ketchup, crunchy pickles, and sliced white onions. Burger King Guests can have the “Spider-Verse” Whopper their way with personal customizations – including the addition of crispy bacon – potentially making for nearly as many combination possibilities as there are Spider-Verses.
Alongside the flame-grilled “Spider-Verse” Whopper, Guests and Spider-Man fans alike can also enjoy a “Spider-Verse” Sundae this summer, which features soft serve ice cream topped with black and red chocolate popping candies.
