Academy Award winner Daniel Kaluuya has signed on to voice Spider-Punk in Sony’s Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the sequel to the Oscar-winning animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news.

Spider-Punk is one of the most recent iterations of Spider-Man, debuting in 2015’s The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 3 #10. He was created by Dan Slott and Olivier Coipel and his real name is Hobart “Hobie” Brown.

Daniel Kaluuya is no stranger to the superhero genre, having previously played W’Kabi in the Marvel Studios movie Black Panther. He won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his work as Fred Hampton in last year’s Judas and the Black Messiah.
