While we have a couple of years until we get to actually watch the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse sequel, there might be some early hints from producer Phil Lord of who might be showing up.
When asked by a fan on Twitter if they can design Japanese Spider-Man (the live-action character from the Japanese television series), Phil Lord says that the character has already been designed. Which suggests that the character will appear in the second installment.

Japanese Spider-Man isn’t a photographer named Peter Paker, the character is named Takuya Yamashiro is a 22-year-old motocross racer.
He also has a bunch of gadgets, vehicles, and a giant robot named Leopardon.
In this version, Spider-Man is Takuya Yamashiro, a young Japanese motorcycle racer who’s given blood by a 400-year-old Human Alien from the planet Spider, letting him turn into Spider-Man in order to defeat the Iron Cross Army in order to avenge his father. He has the basic costume and powers of the Western version (though he tends to shout attack names to use webs, and the webs and costume come from a bracelet) but little else is similar.
We recently made a list of our own guesses of who could be appearing via the various logos in the announcement teaser video that could have been trying to tease the variations of Spider-Man.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2 is set for release on Apil 8th, 2022.
Bitten by a radioactive spider in the subway, Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales suddenly develops mysterious powers that transform him into the one and only Spider-Man. When he meets Peter Parker, he soon realizes that there are many others who share his special, high-flying talents. Miles must now use his newfound skills to battle the evil Kingpin, a hulking madman who can open portals to other universes and pull different versions of Spider-Man into our world.
