Sony's animated Spider-Verse just keeps growing. During its Hall H presentation Friday night at Comic-Con International, the studio announced three more additions to the cast of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Nicolas Cage, as previously rumored, will voice Spider-Man Noir, Kimiko Glenn will play Peni Parker and John Mulaney is the fan-favorite Spider-Ham. They joined a cast that already includes Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Hailee Stanfeld as Gwen Stacy and Jake Johnson as Peter Parker.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Inspired by Marvel Comics' 2014 "Spider-Verse" storyline, the film depicts alternate dimensions, each with its own version of Spider-Man. Against that backdrop, an older Peter Parker of one reality crosses into another to mentor a young Miles Morales, presumably to help take on a threat that entangles all of the heroes.

Introduced in 2009, Spider-Man Noir is a darker version of the wall-crawler from 1933, who wages a brutal war against the New York City underworld, and crime lord Norman Osborn. Peni Parker, who first appeared in 2015 in Edge of Spider-Verse #5, pilots the SP//dr suit inspired by Neon Genesis Evangelion. Spider-Ham, meanwhile, is (ahem) Peter Porker, an anthropomorphic pig who began in 1983 as a simple funny-animal parody of Spider-Man.

Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stars Shameik Moore, Brian Tyree Henry, Jake Johnson, Mahershala Ali, Hailee Steinfeld and Liev Schreiber. The film opens Dec. 14.
