Lord and Miller also shared their statements,

“We are so lucky to have Joaquim, Justin, and Kemp on the ‘Spider-Verse’ team,”

“We are huge fans of Joaquim’s work — he makes his characters so heartfelt and unique, and he can tell an emotional story with an action sequence the way a musical does through a song.

Justin is a maverick filmmaker who relentlessly pursues visual innovation and surprise but always in support of emotional storytelling. Kemp’s work is incisive and ambitious and funny — with a writer’s wisdom and a director’s heart — he just knows what matters in every scene.

All three of them elevate every project they take on, and they are certainly raising our game. We honestly just like them and want to be their friends and we’re hoping to work on this movie together for the next few years will make that happen.”
