You’ve watched every Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie, and you’ve watched every other Marvel movie too. You know them all inside out, and one of your favourites is the animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Well done – it’s a great movie! But did you know that many of the actors who provide voice-over duties in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse also pop up in other Marvel movies?
No? Oh, well there’s nine of them, so you had better keep on reading!
Hailee Steinfeld – Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman
First up is Hailee Steinfeld, who provides the voice of Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Woman (or Spider-Gwen if you prefer). The character is a major player in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and appears throughout the movie.
But outside of this animated Marvel movie, Steinfeld is perhaps better known to MCU fans as Kate Bishop, one of the main protagonists in the Disney+ streaming series, Hawkeye. As with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Steinfeld plays a major role in Hawkeye and helps to drive the story forward.
Mahershala Ali – Aaron Davis/Prowler
Next up is an actor who only appears briefly in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but he plays a key role. The actor is Mahershala Ali, who takes on the role of Aaron Davis, the uncle of lead character, Miles Morales.
As for who Mahershala Ali plays outside of the Spider-Verse, well he is set to play Blade in the forthcoming MCU movie of the same name. In fact, he has already had a voice cameo as Blade in a post-credit scene in The Eternals (2020).
Brian Tyree Henry – Jefferson Davis
And speaking of The Eternals, this leads neatly onto this next actor: Brian Tyree Henry. In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the actor takes on the role of Miles Morales’ dad, Jefferson, while in the MCU he plays the role of the Eternal, Phastos.
Zoë Kravitz – Mary Jane Parker
Onto actor number four, and this is Zoë Kravitz, who plays the part of Mary Jane Parker in Into the Spider-Verse. But those familiar with Kravitz work will know that she also played the role of the mutant, Angel Salvadore, in 2011’s X-Men: First Class.
Nicolas Cage – Spider-Man Noir
Of the many characters who appear in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, one of the fan-favourites is arguably the trench coat-wearing, Spider-Man Noir, as played by Nicolas Cage. And this is the same Nicolas Cage who also appeared in the role of Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, in Ghost Rider (2007) and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2012).
Liev Schreiber – Wilson Fisk
Onto this next actor, and the position is reserved for Liev Schreiber, who plays lead villain, Wilson Fisk the Kingpin of Crime, in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. But fans of the X-Men movie series will also know that Schreiber played the part of Victor Creed/Sabretooth in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009).
Lake Bell – Vanessa Fisk
Sticking with the Fisk family for this next one – Vanessa Fisk (Wilson’s wife), who briefly appears in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The character is voiced by Lake Bell, who also popped up in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2021) in the role of Dr. Graham, and voiced Natasha Romanoff in the MCU animated series, What If…?
Kathryn Hahn – Doctor Octavius
Almost at the end of this list, but not before finding time for two more MCU stars. The first is Kathryn Hahn, who voiced the role of Doctor Olivia Octavius in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but is known in the MCU for playing Agatha Harkness in WandaVision.
Oscar Isaac – Spider-Man 2099
And finally, those who stuck around for the credit scenes in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will know that the futuristic Spidey, Spider-Man 2099, pops up for a quick cameo before the film is over. This version of Spider-Man is voiced by Oscar Isaac, who also plays the role of Moon Knight in the MCU series of the same name.
