Is a sequel underway? What will be its Release Date?
Even before the first film released back in 2018, the sequel to it was already in development. Joaquim Dos and David Callaham were booked to direct and write the script respectively. The release date had been initially finalized as of April 8, 2022. But due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the date has been shifted to October 7, 2022.
As of now, a new title has not been assigned to the film.
What will the plot be like for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2?
The first film ended with the Spider-People returning to their realities but there is a way for them to travel and communicate between dimensions. Producer Amy Pascal teased that the film will start with a thread that was deleted in the first movie. This is a romantic relationship between Miles and the superhero version of Gwen Stacy, Spider-Gwen. So the plot will most likely focus on this pair, but there will be some other Spider-people who will have significant roles. Spider-Ham, Spider-Man Noir, Penni Parker, and the older Peter Parker are likely to be there. Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099 who made an appearance in the post-credits scene is expected to appear as well.
Cast? Who will be there in the sequel?
Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld are expected to reprise their voice-roles as Miles and Gwen. Bryan Tyree Henry as Miles’s father Jefferson Davis, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’s mother Rio Morales, and Kathryn Hahn as Doc Ock are supposed to return with bigger roles.
