Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Delayed Again

-

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse was originally scheduled to come out THIS MONTH…but it was delayed until October 7. If you think that’s not a long wait from now, think again: it just got pushed back further, all the way to June 2023.

The exact reason for the delay has not been revealed, but co-director Christopher Miller tweeted “More time to make it better!” shortly after the announcement. It’s worth noting the story that begins in the upcoming movie will continue into the third one, which has not had its release date moved. Maybe it was done to bring them closer together? Maybe not…no one can say for sure.

We don’t know anything new about the plot or characters of the upcoming sequel beyond what was revealed last December with the teaser trailer. The teaser picked up from the end of the original film and showed what appeared to be the opening scene, or at least an early version of it. Miles Morales is given a surprise visit of his own: Gwen Stacy, the Spider-Gwen (or “Ghost Spider”) of her own universe. He’s been dreaming about meeting her again, but since the portal was closed up, it felt unlikely…at least to him. But before they can get wherever they’re going, Miles is thrown into a dimension he’s never been before…the futuristic one where Spider-Man 2099 swings around!

Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld will return as the voices of Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy respectively, while Oscar Isaac will be playing the role of Spidey 2099. We’ll have more about Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse whenever new information surfaces.
