It seems as though the sequel to 2018’s incredible Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is entering production, at least according to Sony staff member, Nick Kondo.
As spotted by GamesRadar, Nick Kondo, who served as Lead Animator on the first movie, tweeted to his 50 thousand followers that his first day on the job had begun, adding a previously-released teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2.
While the tweet doesn’t outright confirm the news of the movie’s production-entering status, Kondo’s tweet is pretty on the nose. There’s not too much room for interpretation here, so it’s probably a safe bet that work is officially underway. Hooray!
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2 is expected to release sometime in 2022, which is far enough away for me to be tentatively hopeful that the project won’t have been hit too hard by any COVID-19 related delays.
The first Into The Spider-Verse movie was a bonafide hit, and is recognised as being one of the greatest superhero movies of all time thanks to its wonderful writing and absolutely gorgeous animation.
Fans absolutely can’t get enough Spider-Verse, and news that the movie’s sequel is starting production is quite possibly the best news I’ve heard in a long time.
If you haven’t yet seen the 2018 classic, I highly recommend you give it a watch.
The movie’s official description reads as follows: “Teen Miles Morales becomes Spider-Man of his reality, crossing his path with five counterparts from other dimensions to stop a threat for all realities.”
Not too much is known about Into The Spider-Verse 2 at this stage, but if it’s anywhere near as good as its predecessor then I’ll be happy!
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2 will release in 2022.
