We have confirmation of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2! The best Spider-Man film of all time, according to everyone, is officially getting a sequel. The Spider-Verse Twitter account displayed the release date an hour ago:

The original Into The Spider-Verse followed Miles Morales, a devotee of Spider-Man, as he encountered his hero engaged in a tense battle with the Kingpin. Spidey wound up meeting his end in that fight, but fortunately Miles was bit by a radioactive spider himself. Now he has to take up the tights, but who will mentor him?
The other Spider-People will…the same experiment Kingpin was working on also catapulted five other heroes from alternate universes into Miles’ own dimension….middle-aged sad sack Peter B. Parker, Gwen Stacy aka Ghost Spider, Peter Porker the Spectacular Spider-Ham, Spider-Man Noir, and Peni Parker the anime girl. With their assistance, Miles grew the confidence to take the Kingpin on, but ultimately his new friends had to leave.
Or did they? The ending to Into The Spider-Verse suggested at least Gwen could be returning. And the post-credits sequence introduced Spider-Man 2099, so we could possibly be seeing him. We have no idea who else to expect, and we won’t know for a LONG TIME…..we’re not getting this film until 2022.
But at least we know it’s on the way, and Sony has also stated they’re looking into a spinoff movie focused on Gwen, so maybe that will happen to fill the gap. We will see!
