SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE Sequel Finalizes Its New Directing Team

With production underway, Sony Pictures Animation has tapped the directing trio of Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers & Justin K. Thompson to helm the hotly-awaited Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel.

Variety is reporting that Sony Pictures Animation has enlisted Joaquim Dos Santos (Voltron: Legendary Defender; The Legend of Korra), Oscar-nominee Kemp Powers (Soul), and Justin K. Thompson to direct the hotly-awaited follow-up to the Academy Award-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

The trio has been hard-at-work on the project since the beginning of production, utilizing a screenplay written by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who are also returning as producers, and David Callaham (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten RingsWonder Woman 1984).

In a joint statement, the directing team expressed their excitement, “The crew behind the ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ set such a ridiculously high bar, and we’re humbled to take on the challenge of charting the next chapter in the story of Miles Morales.

While casting details are still under wraps, both Shameik Moore and Academy Award-nominee Hailee Steinfeld are expected to reprise their roles as Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy. It seems probable that a combination of Jake Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Lily Tomlin, Luna Lauren Velez, Zoë Kravitz, John Mulaney, Kimiko Glenn, and/or Nicolas Cage will also be back in some capacity along with Oscar Isaac as Spider-Man 2099. 

In addition to Lord and Miller, Amy Pascal, Avi Arad, and Christina Steinberg will be back as producers, with Alonzo Ruvalcaba co-producing. Peter Ramsey, who was a director on the first installment, and Aditya Sood are attached as executive producers.
