There have long been rumblings that we might see Spider-Man make an appearance in Invincible season 2, but as the rumour mill goes into overdrive, we may know know whether there's any truth to the claims!

Josh Keaton has confirmed he'll lend his voice to Invincible season 2, part 2 and, yes, it now appears as if The Spectacular Spider-Man star will reprise the role of Peter Parker!

Back when Invincible co-creator Robert Kirkman was still writing for Marvel Comics, Mark Grayson crossed paths with the wall-crawler in the pages of Marvel Team-Up Vol 3, #14. The events of their meeting were referenced in the pages of Invincible and it's a rare example of two comic companies working together. 

@Cryptic4KQual, who has an impressive track record of runtime/plot leaks, was the first to hint that the Invincible season 2 finale will feature Spider-Man. When someone called them out for spreading false information, they responded in a way that made it clear they're confident this will happen.

As if that wasn't enough, scooper @MyTimeToShine also chimed in with the following...

It's hard to say how this will work as the Spider-Man rights are nothing if not complicated.

Sony Pictures owns the theatrical rights to the web-spinner, but Marvel Studios is somehow developing its own animated series, Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, for Disney+. Sony, meanwhile, has a deal with Prime Video to bring the likes of Silk: Spider Society and Spider-Man Noir to the platform, so if Spidey is in Invincible, all of the above parties will have likely had to agree to it.

This would be a huge moment for the popular animated series, anyway, and Keaton - who has confirmed he'll appear in the show - is definitely playing coy on social media and perhaps feigning a little too much ignorance. 

We'll find out one way or the other when Invincible season 2's remaining episodes hit Prime Video on March 14. You can check out Keaton's cryptic comments about his mystery role below. 

Based on the groundbreaking comic book by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker, and Ryan Ottley, the story revolves around 18-year-old Mark Grayson, who’s just like every other guy his age—except his father is (or was) the most powerful superhero on the planet. Still reeling from Nolan’s betrayal in Season One, Mark struggles to rebuild his life as he faces a host of new threats, all while battling his greatest fear - that he might become his father without even knowing it. 

Starring Steven Yeun, with Sandra Oh, Zazie Beetz, Grey DeLisle, Chris Diamantopoulos, Walton Goggins, Gillian Jacobs, Jason Mantzoukas, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, Kevin Michael Richardson, Seth Rogen, and J.K. Simmons. The executive producers are Kirkman, David Alpert, Catherine Winder, Simon Racioppa, Margaret M. Dean, Rogen, and Evan Goldberg, and the co-executive producers are Helen Leigh and Walker.

Sony does not own FULL exclusive rights to Spider-man, there are some exception clauses such as in regards to animation where Disney/Marvel retains full rights if episodes are less than 30mins or Spider-man is only a cameo role in an animation. How that plays out legaly with Invincible is another question, just that Sony may not be a factor in it and have little to no say in the D+ series being made if episodes are short enough.
