Due to a small delay in upcoming releases, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 should really be hitting theatres next year.
We suspected a sequel was coming even before the original film won Best Animated Feature at the Oscars and the Golden Globes, thanks to close praise into To the Spider-Verse that matched (if not surpassed) the adoration for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man films.
Joaquim Dos Santos is scheduled to produce the movie, with Dave Callaham – who collaborated on Mortal Kombat and Shang-Chi – penning the storey for Miles Morales’ return.
If you’re concerned that the individuals who made the original film so successful won’t be participating, rest assured: financiers Christopher Miller and Phil Lord are writing the script alongside Callaham, and co-director Peter Ramsey is supervising directing.
Now, what does Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 have in store for us? All you need to know is right here.
Release Date for ‘Into the Spider-Verse 2’:
When would Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse 2 be released in theatres?
The sequel was supposed to come out on April 8, 2022, however, like many other movies in development right now, it’s been pushed back.
The good news is that on June 9, 2020, animator Nick Kondo stated that development on the sequel has begun, thus barring any further delays, the sequel will be released in 2021. I can only hope that it will be ready for publication in October 2022.
Chris Miller, the show’s producer, has already hinted at what we might expect: “I’m already blown away by the creation of new revolutionary art methods for the upcoming Spider-Verse film. It’ll make the previous film seem antiquated in comparison.”
Who might continue for Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse 2? Into the Spider-Verse 2 cast: Who will cast for ‘Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse 2’?
The cast will include Miles and Gwen, played by Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld, respectively, with Luna Lauren Velez expected to reprise as Miles’ mother Rio Morales. Brian Tyree Henry, who plays Miles’ father Jefferson Davis, and Kathryn Hahn, who plays Doc Ock, are also due to recover in the sequel.
Oscar Isaac, who appeared in the post-credits sequence, is also expected to make a voice cameo. Issa Rae (Insecure) is said to be voicing Jessica Drew, aka Spider-Woman, in the sequel, but this has yet to be verified.
The original directors would not remain behind the scenes. Kemp Powers, Joaquim Dos Santos, and Justin K Thompson of Soul will instead direct the project.
‘Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse 2’ Storyline:
What would the plot of Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse 2 be all about?
Whilst also Miles’ new Spider-People friends have returned to their own realities, the film closes with discovery there is still a way for them all to commute – or at least interact – among aspects (presumably without threatening New York City’s destruction like the Kingpin’s particle accelerator).
Above his head, the movie’s reality-warping effect appears, accompanied by Spider-voice – Gwen’s
Amy Pascal, the film’s producer (and former Sony CEO), has stated that the sequel will follow up on a plot line from the original film: Miles’ blossoming infatuation with the alternate-reality, superhero incarnation of Gwen Stacy.
The storyline will centre on the two, however if it’s another multiversal adventure, it’ll very certainly include additional Spider-Men and Women. We’ve previously seen Spider-Ham, Spider-Man Noir, Penni Parker, and Jake Johnson’s elder Peter Parker, as well as Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099.
There are several Spider-People to select from. Producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have stated that they hope to see Silk (aka Cindy Moon, Peter’s old student who also was bitten by the spider bite) and Spider-Punk in future films, this is only the start.
The trailer clip for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 contained flashing logos of any and all various versions of Spider-Man, which provides us a hint about which additional personalities may have been included in the movie.
