It looks like Issa Rae might be getting some special powers in her next movie role.
The Insecure actress has just joined the cast of the untitled sequel to the 2018 animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Rae will work alongside Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld, who are offering their vocal talents once again to the characters of Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen.
The Hollywood Reporter first shared the news, adding that the sequel's screenplay will be written by Phil Lord, Chris Miller and David Callaham. While Rae's role has not been revealed, we have a gut feeling that the 36-year-old actress will be playing Spider-Woman (aka Jessica Drew).
Rae shared the news on her Instagram story, with a shot of the The Hollywood Reporter headline and a caption that said, “The way I have loved Spider-Man since the third grade. A dream come true." (She also included a spider emoji as a fitting touch).
