When does Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 come out? One of the best animated movies of all time, 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 only had small updates on the superhero movie. Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen would return as the protagonists, and Miguel O’Hara, otherwise known as Spider-Man 2099, is due to appear, per the post-credits scene. After that, it’s uncharted territory in the multiverse, with another set of converging timelines for Miles to explore.
The creative team features new directors in Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson, with Chris Callaham joining Lord and Miller as co-writer. The whole project looks set to capitalise on Into the Spider-Verse with more visionary animation, more strange versions of Spider-Man, and more trouble for Miles and Gwen. If you have any burning questions, you’ve come to the right place – we have plenty of pictures of Spider-Man. Here’s everything we know about the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 release date.
When is the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 release date?
The theatrical release date for the sequel to Into the Spider-Verse, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, is June 2, 2023. Like many action movies, this date shifted due to Covid-19, from April 2022 to October 2022. Then, in April, it was revealed the film was moving into 2023. Boo!
Excelsior! The best time travel movies
The production was being planned as far back as 2018, based on the positive buzz around Into the Spider-Verse, giving a healthy amount of runway for unforeseen circumstances. So long as no other inter-dimensional catastrophes arise, we should be safe to catch up with the Spider-Verse come summer 2023.
Is there a Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 trailer?
There is a trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, 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 flavour, 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.
What might happen in the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 plot?
We have a synopsis for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, though it doesn’t reveal much beyond that there’ll be a full team of Spider-People, and they’ll be facing a threat larger than anything they’ve faced previously. Oh dear! And knowing this is part one of two, things could get very wild indeed.
The full Into the Spider-Verse 2 synopsis reads: “Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar-winning Spider-Verse saga, an epic adventure that will transport Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man across the Multiverse to join forces with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to face off with a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.”
Co-writer Lord and Miller have teased all the Spider-Man variations, and styles of animation, in the feature. “It’s been fun to have the confidence,” Lord told IndieWire. “And to go even harder and push the medium even further and take Miles to places you couldn’t imagine.”
Webheads: Spider-Man actors ranked
“Miles will reunite with some old friends and meet… a lot of new ones,” they told Entertainment Weekly, giving nothing away but tantalising us nonetheless. 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!
Who is in the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 cast?
