After months of cancelations, delays, production issues, and re-watching the same movies over and over again, we could all use some happy movie news, right? Well, we finally have some! The sequel for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse has officially begun production. We may still have to wait a bit longer, but we’re still excited!

Production Begins On Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Sequel

The first film released in 2018 to rave reviews. Sony Pictures Animation managed to make it clear that any Spider-Man fatigue was not going to affect the success of the film. It went on to make more than $375 million at the box office compared to its $90 million budget, as well as winning Best Animated Feature Film at the Oscars. Fortunately, the premise of the film opens the door to plenty of different stories. So, a sequel was pretty much guaranteed after the success of the original.

Nick Kondo, the lead animator for the film, teased fans by letting us all know that it’s his first day. The video also, sadly, reminds us that we have to wait another two years. The untitled sequel was originally slated for an April 2022 release but has been pushed back to October 7th, 2022.

Plenty To Look Forward To!

The upcoming film will feature Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy, looking deeper into their relationship and leading into a possible romance. Based on the plot, we can eagerly await the return of Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld. No other casting announcements have been made. Joaquim Dos Santos will be directing, with the screenplay written by David Callaham (whose most recent work includes Wonder Woman 1984).
