Shameik Moore, iPOP Alumni, is prepping to put back on his Spidey-suit, digitally speaking, of course. It was announced this week, via Deadline, that production on the sequel for ‘Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse’ has begun. Lead animator Nick Kondo confirmed the news regarding the acclaimed film via social media.
This all comes after the announcement that the film would now hit theatres in October 2022 instead of April 2022. While details have not yet emerged on the sequel, more than likely much of the same cast will return along with leading actor Shameik Moore.
‘Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse’ was a critical and commercial success after its release. Earning the iPOP alumni increased acclaim and the film itself and Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Shameik starred in the film as the titular character Miles Morales. Bitten by a radioactive spider in the subway, Miles suddenly develops mysterious powers that transform him into the one and only Spider-Man. When he meets Peter Parker, he soon realizes that there are many others who share his special, high-flying talents.
Shameik’s first major breakthrough came with his star turning role in 2015’s ‘Dope’. Following the success of the film, Moore went on to star in other known hits. His most recent roles include the hit Hulu series ‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga’ and a guest spot on Quibi’s ‘Dishmantled’.
