Even though the Sony sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse doesn’t come out for another year, the movie has been on a press tour which fired off with 15 minutes being shown at CinemaCon in late April and now another 15 minutes at the Animation festival Annecy this morning.

It was revealed in the room, and later on social that Rushmore star Jason Schwartzman will lend his voice to The Spot, a new villain in both Across the Spider-Verse, which hits theaters on June 2, 2023 and its follow-up, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, which opens on March 29, 2024.
