Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2 - New Release Date Confirmed
Sony moves the Spider-Man animated sequel back a few months.
The animated superhero adventure Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was a huge Oscar-winning hit, but we'll have to wait a while longer for the next installment. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2's release date has been pushed back to October 7, 2022.
Sony shared the news on Twitter today. It didn't use the precise title above, but it did use the Spider-Verse hashtag.
Originally, the release date for Spider-Verse was set for April 8, 2022, which was revealed in a short video back in November. While Sony hasn't commented on why the movie is being pushed back, it's possible that this is because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has been delaying movie releases from every studio, including almost every single Marvel Cinematic Universe movie for the next couple of years.
However, there were some fun elements cut from the original movie that could appear in the 2022 followup. "Going forward, if there are more movies, I'm sure there will be more surprises," co-director Rodney Rothman told GameSpot at the movie's digital and Blu-ray release in March 2019. Rothman explained that there was an Australian Spider-Man cut from the original movie. Additionally, Tom Holland was going to appear in the movie as well.
