There’s no doubt that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of the best animated comic book movies ever made. The film became a hit with critics and audiences everywhere for not just embracing the Spider-Man lore, but for feeling like a comic book come to life with gorgeous eye-popping animation. Spider-Verse even managed to beat out Disney‘s academy award-winning streak for “Best Animated Feature Film” at the 2019 Oscars. Now, with Sony Pictures continuing to develop more Spider-Man-related projects for their cinematic universe and the MCU, fans have wondered when the studio would reveal anything on the upcoming untitled Spider-Verse sequel.
Not much about the plot is known but so far, the voice cast includes returning favorite Shameik Moore (Miles Morales), Jake Johnson (Peter B. Parker), and Hawkeye star Hailee Steinfeld (Spider-Gwen/Ghost-Spider). Back in June, it was reported that Insecure actress Issa Rae joined the cast as Spider-Woman/Jessica Drew marking this as the character’s first big movie appearance. As we wait to hear who else has joined the project, Sony Pictures has finally revealed a first look at the animated feature along with the sequel’s official title!
