We’re going Into The Spider-Verse again as Sony announce a sequel

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was an unexpected hit and Sony Animation are keen to build on that with the announcement of a sequel.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse swung onto our screens in 2018 and blew us away. Rarely has an animated film combined such a dynamic visual style with a heart-warming story that’s funny and crazy in equal measures. It’s little wonder that the film won Best Animated Feature at the Oscars this year.

Keen to build on that success, Sony Animation have announced a sequel. But we’re going to have to wait a little while for it.

Producing an animated film is a notoriously slow process and it looks like Sony are willing to play the long game in order to maintain the high standards they already set themselves.

Revealed via the Spider-Verse twitter account, the highly anticipated sequel is scheduled for a 2022 release. Great news, but what do we do while we’re waiting? I guess multiple re-watches of the first film would be a good start.

So, what to expect from Spider-Verse 2? It looks like the film will explore the relationship between Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen, aka Gwen Stacey. From which reality is yet to be revealed.

In addition to Spider-Verse 2 there will also be a film that will put Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman and Silk to the fore of the action.
