Disappointing news has come in from the Hollywood Reporter reporting that Beyond the Spider-Verse, the highly anticipated animated sequel, will likely be delayed. Sources say that Beyond the Spider-Verse will already have a delayed release before the recent strike.
This isn’t the first time the world has heard about the Beyond the Spider-Verse movie’s release being delayed. Earlier, Hailee Steinfeld, who voices Gwen Stacy, confirmed that she hadn’t done production on Beyond the Spider-Verse, so the possibility of the film being delayed is very high.
That’s also bolstered by producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller saying they’ll take their time to make Beyond the Spider-Verse a great movie, and won’t rush to pick a release date deemed inappropriate.
A source also spoke to Vulture, where he revealed that the only progress that was made on the third movie was story development, which means the movie hasn’t entered production yet. Usually making a movie takes a year. But for animated movies, it usually takes more than a year to make them, because animated movies are more difficult to make than regular movies.
In reality, Beyond the Spider-Verse was originally going to be released in 2023. However, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Sony ultimately decided to postpone its release. It had moved back in October, but finally Across the Spider-Verse may only really release in 2023. And the sequel has finally been confirmed to release in 2024.
With the movie still focused on the figure of Miles Morales, Shameik Moore will most likely return to voice him. And the cast that gives voice in the film. Through the Spider-Verse will come back too. What’s interesting is that Lord and Miller explained that other new characters will appear in the third movie later on. They deliberately didn’t feature it in the first two movies to give the audience a big surprise. Let’s just wait for the continuation of the story, Geeks!
