Metro Boomin has reacted to seeing his surprise cameo in the new film Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse, and he had a whole movie theater cheering for him.
The super producer not only curated the soundtrack for the new animated film but also had a brief cameo in the movie, which he was finally able to see inside a packed theater a premiere on Friday (June 2).
The scene in question finds Miles Morales fleeing a flock of Spider-Men from various timelines in the multiverse, with Spidey Metro telling him: “There’s nowhere to run.” However, Morales then crashes out the window, and during an awkward moment of silence, Metro turns to everyone and says: “My bad everybody, there was somewhere to run.”
In the audience, the “Creepin'” producer can be seen chuckling at his own joke as the audience whoops and applauds him. He then added a behind-the-scenes look of him recording his lines, with everyone in the studio laughing.
“Welcome to the #Metroverse,” Metro added in the caption.

Serving as the sequel to 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the latest animated film continues the story of Miles Morales, the half-Black, half-Latino teenager who’s trying to serve his city as the famous web-slinger.
Metro Boomin was originally tapped for the soundtrack back in December, which features appearances from Future, Lil Uzi Vert, J.I.D, Nas, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, 21 Savage, Offset, 2 Chainz, Swae Lee, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Nav, Don Toliver, Coi Leray, Wizkid, James Blake and more.
All eyes will be on the Boominati boss to see if the project can match the hype of its predecessor. The first Spider-Verse soundtrack spawned the blockbuster single “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee, which was certified diamond in 2021 and became the joint highest-certified single in RIAA history last November.
As for Metro’s previous effort, Heroes & Villains debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 185,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. Metro fended off competition from Taylor Swift’s Midnights for the top spot, out-selling the pop juggernaut by over 40,000 units.
Elsewhere, Metro Boomin recently gave fans an update on his much-anticipated joint album with Future, which fans have been clamouring for since it was teased back in March.
