Issa Rae to voice Jessica Drew in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ sequel

The ‘Insecure’ star enters the Spider-Verse via one of Marvel’s best (and funniest) characters.

On Friday, Borys Kit of the Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed that Issa Rae has joined the voice cast of Sony’s upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Although not confirmed by Sony, Kit also revealed that Rae will be voicing Jessica Drew, aka Spider-Woman.

For fellow Spider-Woman fans like myself, it’s awesome news to hear that she’ll be joining what was already a fantastic collection of Spider-Folks. It’s also good to know that Drew will be in good hands.

Although Issa Rae doesn’t have a lot of genre work under her belt, she’s a fantastic award winning actress who currently stars in the HBO series Insecure. If you’ve seen her there (or in most of the other projects she’s been a part of), then you know Rae has the comedic timing to absolutely nail Jessica Drew’s voice.
