Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
star Jake Johnson
has now revealed that he is close to confirming a deal that would see him return as the beer-gut brandishing Peter B. Parker in the upcoming sequel. While the actor has revealed in the past that he was unsure whether there would be a role for the alternate wall-crawler in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2
, it seems that things have taken a turn towards the positive, with Johnson revealing that, should things work out, Peter B. Parker will be back.
"I've been working on a contract. I believe Peter B. Parker is making a return."
Introduced in 2018's animated Oscar winner, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
, Peter B. Parker is an endearingly dishevelled, jaded version of the Marvel superhero, who reluctantly becomes mentor to Miles Morales
when he is suddenly dragged into another dimension. Directed by Bob Persichetti
, Peter Ramsey
, and Rodney Rothman
