Sony Delays ‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ And Its Sequel
Sony recently announced the release date for the upcoming Marvel movie Madame Web, which is now set to be released on July 7, 2023. Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer 3 also got a release date, September 1, 2023. Those are the upcoming movies that now received their initial release dates, but some movies were also delayed from their initial release dates, and one of them is Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse (Part 1), a sequel to the animated hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was released in 2018 and it was a huge hit for Sony. The movie was praised by critics and the audience, it grossed $375.5 million worldwide, and it won the Academy Award for the Best Animated Feature, which broke Disney’s long-term domination in winning this award every year. Of course, Disney continued its domination after that, but Sony’s success with Into the Spider-Verse was more than enough to start working on a sequel — a two-part sequel, that is!
The sequel, officially titled Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part 1), was revealed last December with the first look trailer, which showed Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy’s Spider-Woman meeting again. The movie was set to be released next October, but now it has been moved to June 2, 2023, while its sequel, Part 2, is now set to be released on March 29, 2024.
The movie is starring Shameik Moore as Miles Morales/Spider-Man, Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman, Jake Johnson as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, and Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman. That’s a lot of spiders.
