Will Miles Morales get a new partner in the sequel to ‘Spider-Verse’?
Wait, did we just get confirmation of a new Spider-Man set? Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2? Production of the sequel to the Oscar-winning cartoon since June 2020 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse No major updates have been made to how things are going. Sure, we know Shameik Moore will return to speak to Miles and Morales The legend of Korra director Joaquim Dos Santos is set to direct the sequel. We even know that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will again act as producer of the stunning new movie.
But what we want are recent photos of Into the Spider-Verse 2 – a wish that was fulfilled when Into the Spider-Verse Twitter posted two new photos earlier this week. The new photos show Spider-Man 2099 (also known as Miguel O’Hara) in various poses. It’s also possible that these new images were from an Into the Spider-Verse credits scene that featured Spider-Man 2099. The character – a future New York based geneticist whose attempts to restore Spider-Man’s abilities result in his own DNA merging with the DNA of the teenage web slinger – is voiced by none other than Oscar Isaac. The credits scene turned a legendary Spider-Man meme into a funny joke starring Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099, and also suggests that this futuristic Spidey was keeping an eye on the multiverse gadgets from the first movie.

The most fascinating thing about these Spider-Man 2099 images is that they hint at the return of the character for the sequel to Into the Spider-Verse. Even if Isaac doesn’t return to speak Spider-Man 2099 (although I hope he does at this point despite the lack of an official announcement), it looks like the character will be involved in Miles Morales’ continued multiverse adventures be. The possible return of Spider-Man 2099 for the sequel, as spiced up by these new imagery, could be the first of many teases about the new Spider-Companions that appear in Into the Spider-Verse 2. So keep an eye out for new developments.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is currently slated for release on October 7, 2022. Check out the new look from Spider-Man 2099 below. Find out more about what new 2021 films are coming to theaters soon.
