Into the Spider-Verse directors tease sequel’s possible time jump
It’s been known that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will be branching out into sequels, spinoffs, and possibly even TV shows in the near future. Last night at the red carpet before the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards, the film’s three directors were on hand to talk about what’s in store for Miles Morales’ next big screen adventure.
“We’re gonna start with Miles, we’re gonna cut to two years later, obviously,” Rodney Rothman told Variety, before his co-directors, Peter Ramsey, and Bob Persichetti, looked like they were trying to stop him from revealing too much more.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street, have brought their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.
Shameik Moore, star of The Get Down and Dope, voices Miles Morales in the film. He is joined by Liev Schreiber as Kingpin, Mahershala Ali as Miles’ Uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles’ father Jefferson, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, Lily Tomlin as Aunt May, with Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, Jake Johnson as Peter Parker along with Kimiko Glenn (Orange Is the New Black) as SP//dr aka Peni Parker; comedian John Mulaney as Spider-Ham; and Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman. The script was written by Phil Lord, who produced the film along with Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, Christopher Miller, and Christina Steinberg.
