When is the Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse 2 release date? Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, had fans clamouring for more as soon as the credits rolled. We ended up waiting a full year, but Sony confirmed two sequels in November 2019, with Phil Lord and Christopher Miller back as writers and producers.

Since then, we’ve learned a lot about the latest Spider-Man adventure, and the follow-up to one of the best superhero movies ever made. Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen are returning as the protagonists, and Miguel O’Hara, otherwise known as Spider-Man 2099, is due to appear. The creative team features new directors in Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K.

What is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 about?

The Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse plot will involve Miles and Gwen facing an even greater threat, with yet more Spider-People.

We know already that Shameik Moore is one of the best Spider-Man actors, and he will get plenty of opportunities to spread those wings – or webs – in the new adventure.

The story begins with Gwen Stacy approaching Miles with a mission that positions him as the man responsible for saving all of the Spider-People in the multiverse from a mysterious new villain. He meets up with the multiversal protectors known as the Spider-Force, only to find himself in disagreement with their methods.

As for the Spider-People on the show, there will be dozens. We know Spider-Man 2099 is in there, but who else could be included? Spiders-Man? Spider-Cat? Spirit Spider? The possibilities are almost endless! At CinemaCon 2022, Sony Pictures revealed that the movie would not only feature six universes but also host 240 characters in total. So, the possibilities truly are endless!

Is there a Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 trailer?

There is a Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse trailer, and it gives us quite a bit to gawk at. First, there’s Spider-Gwen popping through to say hello to Miles while he’s daydreaming and listening to music. She checks his journals and finds evidence that he might have a crush – bless.

He’s grounded, but she pressures him into going on an adventure. Cut to him in his Spidey suit hurtling through time and space and landing in some new and unforeseen alternate reality. Just as he’s getting his bearings, Spider-Man 2099 jumps in and grabs him.

The two tumble into some futuristic highway or other, and Miles is well and truly getting thrown around. Different animation styles return, giving each setting and backdrop its own distinct tone and flavor, and the difference in fidelity from the last is pretty jaw-dropping.

A second teaser dropped on December 13, 2022, and gave us a little more detail about Miles’s big adventure. It seems like he’s going to be public enemy number one among the Spider-Men of the multiverse for whatever reason.

A third extended trailer dropped in April 2023 and set up Miles’s conflict with Miguel O’Hara. Check it out below.
