THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES IN INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE 2
With the first installment, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, setting such a high bar for its sequel, this next chapter in the story of Miles Morales aims to be more ambitious, thrilling, and colorful than its predecessor.

Parker/Spider-Man), Brian Tyree Henry (Jefferson Davis), Lily Tomlin (Aunt May), Luna Lauren Velez (Rio Morales), Zoë Kravitz (Mary Jane Parker), John Mulaney (Peter Porker/Spider-Ham), Kimiko Glenn (Penny Parker), and/or Nicolas Cage (Spider-Man Noir) may return to reprise their roles as their respective characters.
