Issa Rae Is Spider-Woman In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2
Jessica Drew is heading to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2. Per a new report via The Hollywood Reporter, Issa Rae (Insecure) has just boarded the cast of the animated sequel to voice Jessica, whom Marvel fans will also know as a secret identity of Spider-Woman. She will join returning cast members Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld, who are reprising their roles as the Miles Morales Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen, respectively.

Full details on the plot of the sequel haven't yet been divulged, but as with the original movie, it will follow various incarnations of Spider-characters from alternate Marvel Comics realities. That leaves the door open for any character from previous animated adaptations of Spider-Man to make an appearance, along with any version of the superhero from the many different incarnations we've seen in the comic books. Original characters based on established Marvel superheroes and supervillains can also be created as well.
