Everything worked out in favor of the animated Spiderman franchise, and now we are getting a sequel to the original movie! The film is still untitled, but the MCU fandom is unanimously calling it Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2. Joaquim Dos Santos and Dave Callaham are both working together for the production of the film. And as the sequel is in the hands of such reputed filmmakers, we are sure that the second installment will be another masterpiece.
Sony Pictures Animation and Marvel Studios will both be publishing the movie together. After the film got Emmy and Golden Globes nominated, fans were sure of the second movie. Spoiler alert, they were right!
In November of 2019, Sony Pictures Animation announced that the sequel is in its pre-production phase. Later in 2020, the animation work began. Then why is the film not released yet?
We have got all such questions covered in the following article. So, without any delay, let’s begin!
Official Release Date of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2
The film was scheduled for its premiere in April of 2022, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, the production had to be abandoned, and thus the release date of the film got delayed by a few months.
Now things are becoming better so the film will be released on 7th October 2022. So mark the date on your calendars.
But there is still almost a year till its release, which is quite disappointing. But considering that the upcoming film is the sequel of the mighty Spider-Verse, we are sure that the wait will be worth it!
Who are the Characters of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2?
As the story will continue, most of the original cast is expected to return for the sequel. However, there is no official confirmed line-up of characters. So, we are just hoping that our assumptions are correct!
In that case, expect Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacey and Shameik Moore as Miles in the second installment. But what about the rest of the cast?
Well, they will also reprise their old respective roles. Luna Lauren Velez will feature as Mile’s mother, Rio Morales. Others include; Brian Henry as Jefferson Davis as Mile’s father. In this movie, you’ll get to hear more of Kathryn Hahn as Doc Ock, as she will be focused more on!
There were rumors that we’ll get to see spider-woman in the sequel and that Isaac Rae will voice her. But this news is yet to be confirmed by the filmmakers. In the first movie’s post-credits scene, we got to hear Oscar Isaac’s voice, and it is reported that in the sequel, too, he will be making a guest vocal appearance.
What is the Story of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2?
Things worked out for the spider-people in part 1. So, that story is done; and we won’t further explore it. Writers will come up with something new this time. Unfortunately, we do not have any details from the filmmakers yet. But some theories are suggesting the potential plot for the sequel. All of them are summed up below.
Most likely, it will further develop the relationship between Gwen and Miles. Their romance was supposed to be a part of the first film, but unfortunately, it could not make the final cut, and hence writers saved that bit for the sequel. So, be prepared for their cute romantic scenes!
However, their relationship cannot be the only storyline. There will be some trouble too! We are not sure who’ll return for villains, or maybe there will be some new evil people introduced. But we think Katherine Hahn’s Doc Ock will not be the main threat as she will play the main character in a spider-man spinoff! But that is news for some other day.
The Teaser Clip for the Sequel Gave Away a Major Chunk of the Plot
In the clip posted on Twitter, we see another Spider-man who is usually called Supaidaman. If you have never heard of him, relax because you are part of the majority.
This spider-man (Takuya Yamashiro) is a product of a deal signed between Marvel and a Japanese production company Toei. If his past is explored enough, he might be the coolest spiderman in history. Because he became one (spider-man) just at the age of 22! Well, that is impressive.
Is There Any Trailer for the Sequel?
No, there is no official trailer for the sequel yet. But we do have a teaser for it! So, check that out.
The film will come out a year later, and that is very far away, so in the meantime, you can binge-watch the amazing Disney+ MCU TV shows. Read about Loki here!
