SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE Producer Confirms Japanese Spider-Man For Sequel

Although the character was already teased in the announcement video, co-producer Phil Lord has now confirmed that Japanese Spider-Man will be one of the new Webheads to feature in Into The Spider-Verse 2.

Sony Pictures recently announced that the highly-anticipated sequel to Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse will swing into theaters on April 8, 2022. The accompanying teaser video featured what many fans assumed was the logo for Japanese Spider-Man, and co-producer Phil Lord has now confirmed that the character will indeed appear.

Lord responded to a fan on Twitter who asked if he could design the unique incarnation of Spidey by revealing that he's already been designed.

Japan introduced its own version of Marvel's iconic wall-crawler back in the '70s when Toei Company gained a licence to use the character. This take on the hero looked pretty much identical to the classic Spidey, but he piloted a giant mecha called Leopardon.

Japanese Spider-Man will likely only be one of many new incarnations of the Webhead that'll join Miles, Peter, Gwen, Porker, Noir and Peni in the movie.

Chris Miller will rejoin Lord as EP, but we're not sure if Bob Perischetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman will be back on board as directors yet.
