Spider-Verse 2 cast and characters - all the stars from the new movie

The Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse cast is packed with A-list stars, from the likes of Oscar Isaac to Daniel Kaluuya, and Hailee Steinfeld to Shameik Moore.

The Spider-verse 2 cast and characters led by Miles and Gwen

Who’s in the Spider-Verse 2 cast? Across the Spider-Verse has finally hit cinemas and introduced us to a whole host of weird and wonderful versions of Spider-Man.

Now we’re pretty dedicated Spider-Man fans, but even we, without an encyclopedic knowledge of Spider-Man movies, comics, and TV series, got a little bit confused about who was voicing all these new Spider-People (don’t blame us for being distracted. We were having our mind blown, as we explained in our Across the Spider-Verse review).

So if you want to know more about the Across the Spider-Verse cast, you’re in luck. We’ve got a complete list of all the actors who appear in the film and even picked out a few of our favorite Spider-Verse 2 characters and given them the spotlight.

The Across the Spider-Verse cast

The main Spider-Verse 2 cast list:

  • Shameik Moore as Miles Morales / Spider-Man
  • Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy / Spider-Woman
  • Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara / Spider-Man 2099
  • Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker / Spider-Man
  • Issa Rae as Jessica Drew / Spider-Woman
  • Karan Soni as Pavitr Prabhakar / Spider-Man India
  • Daniel Kaluuya as Hobart “Hobie” Brown / Spider-Punk
  • Jason Schwartzman as Dr. Jonathan Ohnn / The Spot

Shameik Moore as MIles Morales in Across the Spider-Verse

Shameik Moore as Miles Morales / Spider-Man

Miles Morales is the one and only Spider-Man from Earth-1610. Since we last saw him, Miles has matured and really come into his own as Spider-Man. Still, while Miles may have the spider side of his life down, he’s struggling to balance his extra-curricular activities with his personal life, which is causing friction with his parent.

Rapper and actor Shameik Moore plays Miles. While he’s probably best known for playing the new Wallcrawler, Moore got his start appearing on TV series like House of Payne before making the leap to the big screen in the 2015 movie Dope. You can see Moore next (or hear him, at least) in Spider-Verse 3.

Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen in Across the Spider-Verse

Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy / Spider-Woman

The Spider-Woman of Earth-65, Gwen Stacy, is dealing with a lot of guilt. Gwen blames herself for the death of her best friend, Peter Parker (and so do the police), and she’s closed herself off from people as a result. Her last trip across the multiverse, however, has really opened her up though, and Gwen’s ready to start making friends again.

Hailee Steinfeld voices Gwen Stacy. Like Moore, Steinfeld is both a musician and an actor and a musician who’s appeared in classic movies like The Edge of Seventeen and the best of the Transformers movies, Bumblebee. You may also recognize her from the Marvel series Hawkeye, as well as Dickinson.

Oscar Isaac as Miguel O'Hara in Across the Spider-Verse

Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara / Spider-Man 2099

The most villainous of the Spider-Men (although he thinks he’s doing the right thing), Miguel O’Hara is all ‘great power means great responsibility’ all the time. He’s the one who formed the Spider Society to protect the multiverse, and he won’t let anything stop him from achieving his mission. We won’t lie; he may be a bad guy, but Miguel’s one of our favorites.

You’ll probably recognize his voice actor Oscar Isaac from his incredible filmography. Isaac has been in Star Wars, X-Men (although the less said about that, the better), Dune, The Addams Family, and much much more. Still, we think his best role is in Ex Machina, where he played tech weirdo Nathan Bateman.

Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker in Across the Spider-Verse

Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker / Spider-Man

Peter B. Parker was a lost soul in Into the Spider-Verse, but meeting and training Miles has turned his life around. When we meet him in Spider-Verse, he’s the proud papa to a brand new wall-crawling baby named May Day, which has somehow made him even more irritating.

We know you shouldn’t have favorites, but of the Spider-Verse 2 cast, Jake Johnson is our favorite. Why? Well, because we’re massive fans of the New Girl (one of the best comedy series), where he plays the hilarious slob with a heart of gold, Nick Miller.

Issa Rae as Jessica Drew in Across the Spider-Verse

Issa Rae as Jessica Drew / Spider-Woman

Jessica Drew is Miguel O’Hara’s right-hand woman, and while we don’t learn a lot about her in the film, it’s clear she’s dedicated to the Spider-Society.

Issa Rae voices Jessica Drew, and she’s got a really impressive resume.  Rae created, co-wrote, and starred in the Golden Globe-nominated show, Insecure.  She’s also appeared in The Hate U Give, The Photograph Vengeance, and you can see her next as President Barbie in Barbie.

Karan Soni as Pavitr Prabhakar iN Across the Spider-Verse

Karan Soni as Pavitr Prabhakar / Spider-Man India

A cocky version of Spider-Man from Mumbattan, when we meet Pavitr, he thinks he’s god’s gift to the Spider-Verse, but seeing Miles’s heroism causes him to change his ways. Of all the worlds we travel to, Pavitr’s world is easily the prettiest, although Gwen’s gives it a run for his money.

You’ll know Karan Soni, who voices Pavitr, from playing the hilariously put-upon taxi driver Dopinder in the Deadpool movies. He’s also appeared in Safety Not Guaranteed, Betas, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, and Pokémon Detective Pikachu.

Daniel Kaluuya as Hobie Brown / Spider-Punk in Across the Spider-Verse

Daniel Kaluuya as Hobie Brown / Spider-Punk

Oh yeah, now we’re talking. Hobie Brown is the anarchistic Spider-Punk who spends his days kicking fascist butt and playing in a rock band. While he’s initially presented as a rival for Miles, he quickly proves himself to be one of the Spider Society’s more honorable members.

You don’t need us to tell you about Daniel Kaluuya’s career, do you? He’s an Oscar-winning actor who’s appeared in more great movies than I’ve had hot dinners, and I eat an awful lot of hot food. Seriously, he’s been in Nope, Judas and the Black Messiah, Get Out, Sicario, and a lot more. Still, to us, he’ll always be Tea Leaf from the TV series Psychoville.

Jason Schwartzman as Dr. Jonathan Ohnn in Across the Spider-Verse

Jason Schwartzman as Dr. Jonathan Ohnn / The Spot

If you’d have told us The Spot would ever be a scary villain, we’d have told you to pull the other one, but Across the Spider-Verse makes the dalmatian-looking bad guy a genuinely menacing multiversal threat.

If you recognized The Spot’s dulcet tones, that means you’re probably familiar with the work of Jason Schwartzman. Schwartzman is a Wes Anderson regular who made his debut in Rushmore, but he’s gone on to appear in The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. You can see him next in Asteroid City.

That’s an awful lot of Spider-Men, but we think we’ve written enough content to keep even this legion of Spider-People busy. We’ve got a how-to-watch Across the Spider-Verse guide, a breakdown of the Across the Spider-Verse ending, revealed if Venom is in Spider-Verse 2, and explained what exactly Earth-42 is.

If you want to know more about the upcoming films and TV shows featuring the Web-Head, we’ve also got guides breaking down everything you need to know about the Spider-Man 4 release date, the Venom 3 release date, the Spider-Verse 3 release date, and the Spider-Man Freshman Year release date. That’s a lot of info to swing through, but if you’re lost and don’t know where to begin, then you should give our ‘how to watch the Spider-Man movies in order‘ guide a read.
