Marvel's 2018 "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" was a fan and critics' favorite and has been waiting for an equivalent sequel for over four years now. Next year this will finally happen, and the bar is set high. In the first part, we already saw a lot of different Spider-Men successfully fighting many villains alongside Miles Morales. In the sequel, there should be even more additions on both the side of the superheroes and the villains. 

At the moment there are rumors about two popular Spider-Man cast members. One of them is Yuri Lowenthal. He may not sound familiar to many Spidey fans at first, but he's much better known than you might think. Lowenthal is the actor behind Peter Parker in the popular game "Spider-Man", which was released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 in 2018. In the game, you get to meet many characters from the Spider-Man universe, including Otto Octavius, podcast host J. Jonah Jameson, and villains Electro, Rhino, Scorpion and Vulture. Since the game has nothing to do with the MCU, the respective characters also have no connection to their movie counterparts and thus have a life of their own. The hero made his first appearance outside of the games in "Spider-Geddon", also released in 2018, which was published as a comic book limited series and featured all kinds of Spider-Men and Spider-Women. 

As The Cosmic Circus reports, none other than Tom Holland will be the second newcomer. In the past, there has been much speculation about an appearance by Spider-Man actors Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. If the article is to be trusted, at least one of the three will make it into the sequel. Rumors regarding Maguire and Garfield are persistent, and Holland's involvement further reinforces them. However, there is no concrete evidence yet. Moreover, the signing of Daniel Kaluuya as Spider-Punk has been revealed. At Marvel, the character has not yet had a long tradition, as he first appeared in the comics in 2015. While it has been known for a while that Spider-Punk will be a part of the Spider-Men, we didn't know that the "Nope" actor would be dubbing the character.

"Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" will hit theaters on June 2, 2023, and we hope to soon see a first trailer that may reveal more.
