All the Famous Voice Cameos in SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE

If you’ve seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse already, chances are your ears perked up quite a few times in the “Hey, I know that voice!” fashion. The cast is stacked with a ton of famous actors, some you may recognize right away, and others more subtly disguised. With that in mind, here’s a guide to all of the celebrity voices in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, for your convenience. (But if you haven’t seen the film BEWARE OF MAJOR SPOILERS from this point forward. We’re warning you—it’s worth the surprise!)

Miles Morales

Our film’s central hero, who assumes the role of Spider-Man from Peter Parker, is played by Shameik Moore. Moore is best-known for his role in 2014’s Dope.

Gwen Stacy

Gwen Stacy, or Spider-Gwen, the equivalent of Spider-Man in another dimension, is played by Hailee Steinfeld. Steinfeld is the Oscar-nominated star of True Grit and The Edge of Seventeen, who will next appear in Bumblebee.

Peter Parker

The film’s older and more-washed-out-than-we’ve-seen-him-before Peter Parker is played by Jake Johnson, who played the lovable, laughable Nick Miller on New Girl and appeared in Jurassic World.

Peni Parker

Kimiko Glenn plays Peni Parker, another version of Spidey from yet another dimension. Glenn is a Broadway actress who also plays Soso on Orange Is the New Black.

Spider-Man Noir

Spider-Man Noir, a detective version of Spidey from another dimension, is played by the incomparable Nicolas Cage. We don’t have to explain how you know Nic Cage.


Spider-Ham, otherwise known as Peter Porker, an, um, pig version of Spider-Man, is portrayed by stand-up comic, former SNL head writer, and Big Mouth co-creator John Mulaney.

Miles Morales’ family

Miles’ cop dad Jefferson Davis is played by Brian Tyree Henry, who was recently terrifying in Widows and is consistently charming on Atlanta. Meanwhile, his mom Rio Morales is played by Luna Lauren Velez. You’ve probably seen her on Dexter. Finally, Miles’ Uncle Aaron—also the supervillain Prowler—is none other than Mahershala Ali. Ali recently won an Oscar for his role in Moonlight, and will star on the next season of True Detective.

Aunt May

Peter’s beloved aunt is played by the great Lily Tomlin, a legendary actress who’s starred in films from Nashville to Grandma, and who currently stars on Grace and Frankie.

Mary Jane

Zoë Kravitz plays Mary Jane, Peter’s former love. Kravitz is known for the hit HBO series Big Little Lies, the new film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and has appeared on Californication.

The villains

Liev Schreiber is Kingpin, the film’s big bad; Kathryn Hahn plays a female version of Doctor Octopus; Lonely Island’s Jorma Taccone is the new Green Goblin

Peter Parker… again

Yeah, there’s another one. Star Trek and Wonder Woman‘s Chris Pine plays a Peter whose death inspires Miles’ to take up the Spider-Man title.

Spider-Man 2099

If that weren’t enough Spideys, Poe Dameron himself Oscar Isaac is Miguel O’Hara, or Spider-Man 2099, a beloved Marvel Comics character. Given that post-credits tease, we expect we’ll see much more of him in future Spider-Verse installments.

And of course…

The legendary comic creator Stan Lee, who recently passed away, turns in a posthumous cameo in Spider-Verse as a costume shop owner who gives Miles his first Spider-Man costume. Lee’s cameo almost didn’t happen, but we’re so glad it did; it’s one of his best—and most touching—yet.
