Across the Spider-Verse Producer Addresses Delay

Spider-Man will be swinging across the Multiverse a little later than expected. Sony Pictures on Wednesday delayed the animated Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Versethe sequel to the Academy Award-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. No longer titled “Part One” but still the first of a two-parter, Across the Spider-Verse has shifted from October 7, 2022, to June 2, 2023. The next adventure in the Spider-Verse saga, reuniting Miles Morales (voice of Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (voice of Hailee Steinfeld), was originally set to swing into theaters on April 8, 2022.

Reacting to Sony’s Spider-Verse delay on Twitter, producer and co-writer Chris Miller tweeted with a spider emoji: “More time to make it great.” Producer Phil Lord, who co-wrote both Spider-Verses, tweeted “Lolololololololololololololololol,” replying with a follow-up tweet: “(This is not about spiderverse ps).”

Another sequel, the previously titled Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part Two)now opens on March 29, 2024.

“Miles’ story is an epic,” Lord and Miller previously told EW of the two-part Spider-Verse sequel. “We wrote what we thought the story needed to be, and to our surprise we realized it was two movies instead of one.”

When Miles and Gwen swing across the Spider-verse with Spider-Man 2099 (Moon Knight‘s Oscar Isaac), they’ll journey into stylistically different dimensions that look and feel “radically different from all the others,” Lord and Miller said at the time. “They all look like they were drawn by a different artist.”
