Miles Morales will be swinging through the streets once more in Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse 2!
It was inevitable. The success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse made it a shoo-in for the sequel treatment and the scoring the awards for Best Animated Feature Film at both the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards pretty much cemented its success. Naturally, the studio is eager to get the web-ball rolling on another adventure which has officially been announced for 8th April 2022.

The new chapter in the Spider-Verse saga will be helmed by Joaquim Dos Santos (Avatar: The Last Airbender) and written by David Callaham (Wonder Woman 1984) and expand upon the Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) coming of age story. Further information about the storyline is being kept under wraps at this point, however, during a past interview producer Amy Pascal has been quoted as saying the sequel could explore a romance between Miles Morales (Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld). In addition to the Spider-Verse sequel, Sony has confirmed its plans to produce a spin-off adventure featuring various Spider-Women and Amy Pascal confirmed that it will feature Spider-Gwen, Cindy Moon (Silk), and Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman).
“I think it’s great that we’re going to be able to tell movies about female superheroes in this realm, and in the live-action realm as well because I believe that there are going to be characters that really resonate for people,” Pascal said. “They’re funny and quirky and different, and heroic in all kinds of different ways that only animation allows you to do.”
This is wonderful news. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a breath of fresh air and rejuvenated the stagnant animated feature film genre. However, I do not subscribe to the “best-animated movie ever” corner of fandom, that accolade will always belong to cinematic greats like Transformers: The Movie and Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, but I am super excited to be heading back into the Spider-Verse alongside Miles Morales.
Mark the date in your diary, Spider-Verse 2 swings into action on April 8th, 2022.
