The sequel to the 2018 Oscar-winning film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will be directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K Thompson.

Santos is known for his work on Avatar: The Last Airbender and Netflix’s Voltron series while Powers is in the Oscars race this year in the screenplay category for One Night in Miami, a story that he adapted from his play. He also co-wrote and co-directed animated film Soul with Pete Doctor and Mike Jones, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Thompson worked as production designer on Spider-Verse and his other credits include Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs movies.

“The crew behind the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse set such a ridiculously high bar, and we’re humbled to take on the challenge of charting the next chapter in the story of Miles Morales,” the three directors said in a joint statement.

“We can’t wait to surprise fans with the wild new adventure we’re sending Miles on with his friends, both old and new!”
