Sony’s 2018 animated comic book movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, followed Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) after he is bitten by a radioactive spider. Not long after that familiar jumping-off point, Kingpin killed Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Chris Pine) before opening portals to alternate universes, which brought different Spider-People into Miles’ universe. With the help of Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld), Peter B. Parker (Steven Yuen), and an array of other, oddball web slingers, Miles was able to stop then jailed Wilson Fisk/The Kingpin (Liev Schreiber).
For fans that are not familiar with Miles Morales, He possesses two talents that the original Spider-Man lacked: the ability to disguise himself, including his costume, to blend in with his surroundings, thus rendering him invisible, and a “venom strike” that can momentarily paralyze practically anybody with a single touch. But of course with these additional powers, he does not have a Spider-sense that is as good as Peter Parker.
After fans finished marveling over this film, they were surprised to see that a sequel was already on the way.
The exact details of which actors are reprising their roles remain unknown but we do know that Issa Rae will be playing Spider-Woman and Oscar Isaac a character called Spider-Man 2099. Miles’ trip across different dimensions will continue as he seeks answers regarding his father’s absence. What will become of Peter Parker’s mentor and Miles’s father figure, Miles Morales?
In an interview with IndieWire, Lord and Miller have teased what’s next for Miles in the upcoming animated sequel. The second film will be pushing the medium and therefore will introduce new narrative challenges for the writers.
“It’s been fun to have the confidence … And to go even harder and push the medium even further and take Miles [Morales] to places you couldn’t imagine.”
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2 will be released on Oct 07, 2022
