Spider-Verse 3 release date speculation, cast, plot, and more news

Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy found themselves in a lot of trouble in the last Spider-Man movie. Here's what we know about the Spider-Verse 3 release date.

Beyond the Spider-Verse release date: Miles Morales swings off the page

When is the Spider-Verse 3 release date? It’s a great time to be a Spidey fan. We have a cool new Spider-Man PS5 game, Tom Holland’s been talking about Spider-Man 4, and best of all Across the Spider-Verse is available to watch at home.

Still, like a bloated arachnid gorging itself on flies, we Spider-Man fans always want more. So, while we may have loved Spider-Verse 2 (check out our Across the Spider-Verse 2 review here, but long story short: we think it’s one of the best superhero movies ever), we’re desperate to know how Miles’s story ends. So here’s everything we know about the Beyond the Spider-Verse.

Beyond the Spider-Verse release date speculation

Miles’s next adventure was originally scheduled for release on March 29, 2024, but Sony adjusted its slate massively in the summer of 2023. Consequently, Spider-Verse 3 was delayed, and we don’t know when it will be released.

In November 2023, it was reported that the actors were back in the voice recording booth, so with that in mind, we expect an update on the release date sometime in early 2024.

Who’s in the Beyond the Spider-Verse cast?

We expect all the major players from Spider-Verse 2 to return. This includes Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, and Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara.

It’s likely, considering the end of the film, that several familiar faces from Across the Spider-Verse will come back, including Jake Johnson’s hapless Peter B. Parker, John Mulaney’s hilarious Spider-Ham, and Kimiko Glenn’s kawaii Peni Parker.

Our speculative Beyond the Spider-Verse cast list:

  • Shameik Moore as Miles Morales / Spider-Man
  • Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy / Spider-Woman
  • Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis
  • Luna Lauren Vélez as Rio Morales
  • Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker / Spider-Man
  • John Mulaney as Peter Porker / Spider-Ham
  • Kimiko Glenn as Peni Parker / SP//dr
  • Nicolas Cage as Peter Parker / Spider-Man Noir
  • Jason Schwartzman as Dr. Jonathan Ohnn / The Spot
  • Issa Rae as Jessica Drew / Spider-Woman
  • Karan Soni as Pavitr Prabhakar / Spider-Man India
  • Daniel Kaluuya as Hobart “Hobie” Brown / Spider-Punk
  • Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara / Spider-Man 2099
  • Greta Lee as Lyla
  • Mahershala Ali as Aaron Davis
  • Andy Samberg as Ben Reilly / Scarlet Spider

Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and David Callaham have written the script, and it’s being directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson, who made Spider-Verse 2.

What will Beyond the Spider-Verse be about?

Beyond the Spider-Verse will see Miguel and Miles go to war as the two factions of Spider-People put their philosophies to the test.

Miguel is certain that for the Spider-Verse to exist, a “canon event” must happen. Specifically, the police captain must always die. Miles, meanwhile, believes that’s nonsense and is doing everything in his power to save his dad, who’s about to be made police captain. When we last saw Miles, though, he was in a spot of trouble after being captured by the Earth-42 version of him who’d become The Prowler.

Thankfully, Gwen has assembled a ragtag group of Spider-People to save him and stop Miguel’s Spider-Society. We predict Spider-Verse 3 will open with Miles being rescued before he and Gwen recruit more Spideys to his side before (hopefully) proving the error of Miguel’s ways. There’s also the growing threat of The Spot to deal with (I can’t believe that’s a thing I’ve written).

Joaquim Dos Santos also told Empire Magazine that we can expect some a Parent Trap-style storyline with Miles and his multiverse double. “It was more about the alternate Miles,” Dos Santos explained. “Basically, the thing that is now the very, very end of the movie was the bulk of the original concept.”

He also said that “there were some Parent Trap elements” in the original concept, to which Miller added: “Basically, that ended up becoming the second half of the movie, which then ended up becoming mostly the third movie.”

At a recent ‘For Your Consideration’ event [via Buzzfeed’s Jonathan Sim] Miller promised Beyond the Spider-Verse would be emotional and bring the trilogy to a satisfying end.

“We’re in production,” he said. “We’re really excited about where the story is going, I think it’s a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy and it’s as emotional as the other ones…we’re knee-deep in it.”

We’re also likely to see more Spider-Man villains from across the Spider-Verse, and I’m pretty certain that Eddie Brock, aka the Lethal Protector Venom, will make an appearance. We also know that the new movie will take us to the world of Hobie Brown (aka Spider-Punk).

Writer-producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller revealed in 2023 that Spider-Punk’s world will be one of the many mixed media “adventures” in Beyond the Spider-Verse. So stay tuned as we update you on all the upcoming announcements of future worlds and possibly live-action cameos in the future movie.

Will the live-action Spider-Man actors be in Beyond the Spider-Verse?

While nothing’s confirmed, we’re pretty confident that the ‘Beyond’ in the title refers to Miles, Gwen, and the rest of the Web Warriors making the leap to live-action.

That means we could see Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, or Andrew Garfield. We wouldn’t bet on getting all of the live-action Spider-Man actors like we got in No Way Home, but a cameo seems possible. We’re predicting Garfield, but you can’t rule out Holland or Maguire at this point. It just depends on whether they want to spend the rest of their lives slipping into a red and blue onesie for cameos.

Also, technically, the live-action Spider-Men already appeared in Across the Spider-Verse, although that was admittedly archive footage, so we’re not sure it really counts. Maybe other members of the Spider-Man cast will make an appearance, like Kirsten Dunst’s MJ? We’re desperate to know what she’s been up to.

Is there a Beyond the Spider-Verse trailer?

The first Beyond the Spider-Verse teaser trailer is likely to drop around 4 months before the release date, so we’re not expecting to see one until mid-2024. But with the release date currently in flux, that’s just an educated guess.
