All the Best Celebrity Cameos You Might Have Missed in “Across the Spider-Verse”
For the second time, Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) finds himself thrown for an interdimensional loop in “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.” This time around, he’s surrounded by hundreds of Spider-People from the farthest corners of the multiverse, including his old friends Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson), Spider-Ham (John Mulaney), Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage), and Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn).
The film is jam-packed with references to the original Spider-Man comics, as well as animated Spider-Man TV shows and the live-action movies. At one point, Josh Keaton even reprises his role as the voice of Spectacular Spider-Man from the 2008-2009 TV series, a fan-favorite iteration of the comic-book hero. In addition to throwback Spider-Man references, “Across the Spider-Verse” features an impressive roster of celebrity cameos.
From main characters like Jessica Drew (Issa Rae), aka Spider-Woman, and Miguel O’Hara (Oscar Isaac), aka Spider-Man 2099, to more subtle cameos – like “The Bear”‘s Ayo Edebiri as one of Gwen’s bandmates, Glory – the cast in this film is stacked. The movie even features a few live-action cameos from supervillains like The Prowler (Donald Glover) and previous Spider-Men. (Yes, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire make appearances!)
Of course, Marvel movies have a reputation for rounding up Hollywood royalty. Still, “Across the Spider-Verse” definitely has a few cameos we weren’t expecting. Whether you’ve already seen the film or you don’t mind a few spoilers before your first watch, check out the film’s best live-action and animated celebrity cameos ahead.
