Fans waiting for the sequel to 2018 Oscar-winning feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will have to wait a bit longer, as Sony has delayed the film’s release to June 2, 2023. It was originally scheduled to hit theaters this October.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is the first of a two-part sequel planned for the franchise, with Across the Spider-Verse II set to hit theaters in March 2024. Sony also made a minor change to the films’ titles, dropping Part One from the first film and changing Part 2 to the roman numeral post-script for the second.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller return as writers and producers for the sequel, directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson. Dave Callaham is working with Miller and Lord on the script. Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, and Christina Steinberg are also on board as producers.
