Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse Adds John Mulaney as Spider-Ham and Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir

In new footage from animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, screened at San Diego Comic-Con, Miles Morales, Peter Parker, and Gwen Stacy a.k.a. Spider-Gwen walk into a multiverse meeting of Spider-Folks and are in for quite a surprise. Upon being handed “Hello My Name Is” stickers, they discover even more iterations of themselves—namely, Spider-Man Noir and Spider-Ham. And here’s the best part: Those roles are being voiced by (respectively) Nicolas Cage and John Mulaney!

That was the most fun tidbit to come out of Into the Spider-Verse’s SDCC panel, which featured Shameik Moore (Miles), Jake Johnson (Peter), and Hailee Steinfeld (Gwen). Phil Lord, who wrote the movie and produced it with Christopher Miller (following their success on 22 Jump StreetThe LEGO Movie, and The LEGO Batman Movie), shared his thoughts on the fun of crossing into parallel universes with different Spider-People:

All these characters are borne out of tragedy on some level. So in intersecting their stories for the first time, there’s someone who knows what they’re going through. The fact that they get to find each other is a really beautiful part of the movie.

Yep, “beautiful” is about how we would describe something that includes Nicolas Cage and John Mulaney. Sony Pictures also confirmed the casting news:

EW describes the footage as unfinished, so it’s unclear if it will wind up online, but in the meantime, enjoy the new image above.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes to theaters December 14.
