Against a production budget of $90 million, the film grossed $375.5 million worldwide. Last year, Issa Rae was announced as an addition to the Spider-Verse, voicing Jessica Drew in the upcoming sequel.

In a recent interview with UPROXXMorbius director Daniel Espinosa hinted that Miles Morales from the Spiderverse empire may join the MCU.

"I think that Miles Morales that you have in Spider-Verse, I would bet your life on that you would have Miles Morales from the Spider-Verse in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point," he said.
