It looks like the 90s kids might get their Spider-Man back. That Hashtag Show reports that Christopher Daniel Barnes, who voiced the web-slinger in the 1994 Spider-Man: The Animated Series, will be coming back for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2. The report says the actor will only return for a small part. His role in the much-anticipated sequel will reportedly only amount to a few scenes, which make up around no more than five-to-ten minutes of screen time.
Nonetheless, it should be a thrill for fans of the cult classic animated series to see their Spider-Man back in action. Barnes was the voice of one of the most popular Marvel characters for nearly a decade. He will surely be welcomed back with open arms if the rumor turns out to be true. Spider-Man: The Animated Series ran for five seasons, which are all available on Disney+. It was the precedent for an entire animated universe that adapted the world of Marvel. Many former viewers have expressed their desire to see Barnes return to the role in the past.
He came back to voice the Noir version of the character in the video game Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions but didn’t return to the role since. Into the Spider-Verse 2 has the potential to bring back many fan-favorite versions of Spider-Man, and Barnes’s version of the character might be the beginning of a new and exciting line-up. Around two months ago, we reported that it seemed like The Spot would join the film as the main antagonist. So, we might see one of the Spider-Mans’ most insane stories yet that will continue to expand the Spider-Verse.
