If Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse has taught us anything, it's that there are countless different versions of our universe out there. But did you know that there are also different versions of the film itself?

The latest instalment of Sony's animated superhero adventure arrived in theaters on 1 June.

Millions of fans have flooded to see it since then, and the vast majority have walked away with a positive opinion, earning the movie an impressive score of 96 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

If you've only seen the film once, then you'd have no reason to question whether you'd seen the exact same film as everyone else who's been to see it.

But if you loved the movie so much that you've been to see it more than once since its release, you might have realised that it's not always the same.

This is apparently what's happened with some fans, who later took to social media to highlight the differences between versions.

One scene that's been found to change involves Spider-Man Miguel and his virtual assistant, Lyla.

Miguel is desperately trying to get Lyla to call for backup, but she teases him and refuses to give in until he says 'please', at which point she reveals she's already called.

In one version, Lyla ends her joke with an attempt at a fist-bump, while in another she holds up a phone and takes a selfie with her Spider-Man to capture the moment.

After clips of the varying scenes were shared online, one fan called out another changing moment in the movie, writing: "The Spot also has slightly different dialogue in that hologram flashback before he uses his own collider, in the version I watched he says '-which would... not be good' but in the most widespread version online he goes 'oh what the heck'."

The revelations indicate that there are at least two versions of Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse in existence, and Spider-Verse associate editor Andy Leviton has since confirmed the news.

After fans started to share their discoveries on Twitter, Leviton wrote: "I was wondering when people might start noticing…"

Leviton hasn't revealed exactly how many different versions of the movie are out there, but if the Spider-Verse is anything to go off, there could be thousands.

Regardless, creating different versions of the movie is an incredible nod to the story itself, which sees Miles go into the Spider-Verse and meet dozens of different versions of his superhero alter-ego.
