“We are lucky to have such an amazing cast of funny, genuine creative souls to populate the Spider-verse,” said producers Christopher Miller and Phil Lord. “They have generous minds and great big hearts. And they have very talented throats. Which is where their delightful voices come from.”
Miller and Lord added, “We can’t wait for the world to see Miles Morales on the big screen. He’s such a fun and exciting new character, and telling his story through a revolutionary visual style makes for a totally fresh cinematic experience that, if we may say so, is freaking amazing.”
The new Spidey film is directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman. Phil Lord wrote the screenplay and Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, and Christina Steinberg serve as producers.
