Arriving four years after Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which took home the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film, the Spider-Verse sequel sends Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) on another adventure with his Spider-pals (Hailee Steinfeld's Ghost-Spider and Jake Johnson's Peter B. Parker). This time, it's Miles who's traveling the multiverse, where he'll be pitted against the web-slinger Miguel O'Hara aka Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac) and the villainous Spot (Jason Schwartzman).
