Everything We Know About the Sequel

While the superhero industry (and honestly the entire film industry as a whole) is dominated by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that hasn’t stopped others from tossing their hats into the ring. One of the biggest examples of this is Sony, who have owned the rights to one of Marvel’s most popular characters, Spider-Man, since the original 2002 film. They have mostly focused on their own universe of villains, currently with the first two Poison films and with solo films for Kraven the hunter (2023) e El Morto (2024) in the pipeline. However, there’s another significant film from Sony that no one really saw coming, and it went on to make Marvel history as the first Marvel Comics adaptation to receive a coveted Academy Award. That movie was Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), which he beat Ralph rocks the internet (2018) e Incredibles 2 (2018) for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in a Historic Upset.

COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

This is for good reason, like In the Spider-Verse is almost universally regarded as a masterful big-screen animated debut for fan-favorite comic book character Miles Morales (Shameik Moore). With the high-quality ingredients of an innovative art style, enriched characters, an emotionally compelling narrative and more, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse it’s not just a big one Spiderman film, is undoubtedly the greatest Spiderman movie never made. Now fans will be able to return to the Spider-Verse with Miles and his friends Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023), the second installment in what is now a planned trilogy.

The highly anticipated sequel is already showing fans more of what they wanted to see, mainly other universes that we didn’t see in the last film. Now we’ll see not one, not two, but six different universes in the film, each with their own distinct art style, as Miles and his band of interdimensional Spideys unite to take on a new threat. On the other side of the Ragnoverse has had a turbulent release schedule with repeated delays, so to find out everything we know so far about Miles Morales’ next adventure, simply read below to find out all the details revealed so far.

The first trailer gives us our first look at the return to this incredible animated multiverse, albeit with some outdated information. The teaser picks up right where the last film left off, with Miles listening to the hit song In the Spider-Verse “Sunflower” by Post Malone And Swa Lee. Her relaxation is interrupted by the return of Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) through another interdimensional portal. Miles is flustered and surprised to see her crush from another dimension after their latest fling, and Gwen doesn’t explain how or why she’s returned, instead inviting “New York’s one and only Spider-Man” to come along. a tour of the city.

Suddenly, we see Miles in his spider suit dropping into new dimensions, each with their own distinct art style. As he is literally falling into the multiverse, he is interrupted by Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac), which debuted in the credits of In the Spider-Verse. Unlike the other Spider-Men Miles has encountered, this one appears to be a bit more hostile, arguing before the teaser transitions to a title card. That title card is slightly outdated, no longer having the “Part One” subtitle despite a third film being confirmed and on the way. Even the release date shown at the end of the two and a half minute trailer is no longer accurate.

Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse be streaming or in theaters?

Just like the last movie, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be a theatrical release, finally making its way to theaters in the summer. There’s no word yet on if and when the film will debut streaming, particularly given that Sony frequently partners with a variety of streaming services.

What is the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse release date

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was one of many films to be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, going from its original date of April 8, 2022 to October 7, 2022. This is the date seen in the trailer above, but the film has since seen a another significant delay since then. The film is now officially scheduled for release on June 2, 2023. Hopefully we won’t see another delay, but if it means getting a sequel that lives up to the original, we’ll gladly wait.
