Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has added another star to its cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Kaluuya is set to voice Spider-Punk in the film.
Created by Dan Slott and Olivier Coipel, Spider-Punk debuted in 2015’s The Amazing Spider-Man #10. Spider-Punk, aka Hobie Brown, is the Spider-Man of Earth-138. He was a homeless teenager transformed by an irradiated spider due to toxic waste dumping by President Norman Osborn. He led a group of New Yorkers against Osborn and ultimately defeated him. Afterward, he was recruited by Superior Spider-Man to join an army of Spider-Men.
Plot details for the film are being kept under wraps, but it is known. Miles will travel across six other universes as he encounters new Spider-Men and old friends. Kaluuya joins returning voices, including Shameik Moore as Miles, Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, and Oscar Isaac as Spider-Man 2099.
Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson are set to direct the sequel, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller serving as writers and producers. Peter Ramsey, who co-directed the first film, will return as an executive producer alongside Aditya Sood.
