Spider-Man is getting a new, revamped animated treatment in "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse." Ahead of the film's release on Dec. 14, 2018, we're taking a look at the characters and revealing the famous faces who are voicing them. Keep reading to see who's playing whom!
This latest installment tells the origin story of Miles Morales, a half-black, half-Latino high school student from Brooklyn who becomes Spider-Man after Peter Parker dies in his dimension. So who's voicing this character?
Shameik Moore voices Miles Morales. He gained fame after starring in the indie flick "Dope" in 2015, which he followed up with the buzzy Netflix series "The Get Down." Next up for the actor? "Cut Throat City" alongside Eiza Gonzalez, Kat Graham and Ethan Hawke. When it comes to his personal life, it seems Shameik is keeping his private life just that… private.
It's time for some female Spider-people! This installment features Spider-Gwen, who comes from an alternate universe where Gwen Stacy was actually the one bit by the radioactive spider. She is voiced by a very famous face. Find out who next…
Spider-Woman Gwen Stacy is voiced by Hailee Steinfeld! The actress made a name for herself back in 2010 when she picked up an Academy Award nomination for her work in "True Grit" at just 15. Since then, she's starred in "Pitch Perfect 2" and "Pitch Perfect 3" and even picked up more acting accolades in the form of a Golden Globe nomination for 2016's "The Edge of Seventeen." Aside from acting, Hailee has also made a mark in the music world with pop hits like "Starving" and "Love Myself." The "Bumblebee" star is currently linked to former One Direction hunk-turned-solo star Niall Horan.
Peter Parker is actually dead in this dimension, but he still makes an appearance in the film. He's older and a little jaded and serves as Miles' mentor. So who brings life to the classic Spidey?
Jake Johnson voices Peter Parker, a Spider-Man from another dimension. Jake is best known for his work on "New Girl" opposite Zooey Deschanel from 2011 until 2018. He's also previously graced the big screen in films like 2010's "Get Him to the Greek," 2012's "21 Jump Street," 2014's "Let's Be Cops" and 2015's "Jurassic World." The actor keeps his private life pretty private but reportedly married Erin Payne back in 2006 and later welcomed two kids.
Spider-Man Noir hails from 1933 and has a history in battling the gangsters of the Great Depression.
Taking on the role of Spider-Man Noir? Well that's none other than Nicolas Cage! The actor is best known for his iconic '80s roles in movies like "Valley Girl," "Peggy Sue Got Married" and "Moonstruck," with his most notable role coming in 1995's "Leaving Las Vegas" — which earned him an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award. Since then, he's also starred in hits like "The Rock" in 1996, "City of Angels" in 1998, "Adaptation in 2002" and "National Treasure" in 2004. Nicolas has two sons: Weston (with actress Christina Fulton), born in 1990, and Kal-El (with third wife Alice Kim), born in 2005. Nic is currently single.
Another Spider-Woman? Peni Parker is a 14-year-old character in this universe. She was also bit by a radioactive spider.
Peni Parker is voiced by Kimiko Glenn. It's not her first time lending her voice to an animated character — she's previously worked on popular kids TV shows "Sofia the First," "DuckTales," "Elena of Avalor" and "The Lion Guard." You might know her from her role as Brook on "Orange Is the New Black" or from her Broadway background (she played Dawn in "Waitress"). She can currently be seen on the web show "Liza on Demand" alongside internet superstar Liza Koshy.
Peter Porker, the Spider-Ham? Yep, that's a real character in this installment — a parody character who actually once saw his own series of comics. So who's the voice behind Spider-Ham?
Spider-Ham is voiced by John Mulaney! The comedian is best known for his writing on "Saturday Night Live" and his successful stand-up career, which includes the Primetime Emmy-winning special "Kid Gorgeous." "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" marks John's first film role, though he's no stranger to lending his voice to TV characters. The comedian has voiced roles on "Ugly Americans" and "Animals." John is happily married to makeup artist Annamarie Tendler, whom he wed in 2014.
