Everything we know about the sequel

Although the superhero industry (and honestly, the entire movie industry in general) is dominated by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that hasn’t stopped others from jumping into the ring. One of the biggest examples of this is Sony, which has owned the rights to one of Marvel’s most popular characters, Spider-Man, since the original 2002 movie. They’ve primarily focused on their own universe of villains, currently presenting the first two. Poison movies, and with solo movies for kraven the hunter (2023) and the dead (2024) in project. However, there’s another major Sony movie 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 surpassed ralph breaks the internet (2018) and incredibles 2 (2018) to the Oscar for Best Animated Feature in a historic setback.

That’s for a 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, fleshed out characters, an emotionally compelling narrative, and more, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse it’s not just a great Spiderman movie, arguably the best Spiderman movie ever made. Now fans will be able to return to the Spider-Verse with Miles and friends with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023), the second installment in what is now a planned trilogy.

The highly anticipated sequel already shows fans more of what they wanted to see, mainly other universes we didn’t get to see in the last movie. Now we’ll see not one, not two, but six different universes in the film, each with their own distinctive art style, as Miles and his gang of interdimensional Spideys come together to take on a new threat. Through the Spider-Verse 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 for all the details revealed thus far.

The first trailer gives us our first look at the return to this incredible animated multiverse, albeit with outdated information. The trailer picks up right where the last movie left off, with Miles listening to the hit song from In the Spider-Verse “Sunflower” by post malone Y swae lee. Her relaxation is interrupted by the return of Spider-Gwen (hailee steinfeld) through another interdimensional portal. Miles is nervous and surprised to see his crush from another dimension after his latest adventure, and Gwen doesn’t explain how or why she’s returned, instead inviting “New York’s Only Spider-Man” for a ride. by the city.

Suddenly, we see Miles in his own spider suit falling into new dimensions, again each with their own distinctive art style. As he is literally falling through the multiverse, he is interrupted by Spider-Man 2099 (oscar isaac), who debuted in the preview of the end credits of In the Spider-Verse. Unlike the other Spider-Men Miles has met, this one seems to be a bit more hostile, getting into a fight before the teaser cuts to a title card. That title card is a bit out of date, no longer having the “Part One” subtitle even though a third movie has been confirmed and is on the way. Its release date shown at the end of the two and a half minute long trailer is also not accurate.

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

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

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

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was one of many movies hit with a delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, moving from its original date of April 8, 2022 to October 7, 2022. That’s the date seen in the trailer. earlier, but the movie has seen another significant delay since then. Now, the movie will officially open on June 2, 2023. Hopefully, we won’t see another delay, but if it means getting a sequel that lives up to the heights of the original, we’ll be happy to wait.
