The hotly anticipated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel has commenced its production today. The first film came out in 2018 and the animated Spider-Man adventure was a smash hit with both audiences and critics.
Focusing on Miles Morales’ version of Spider-Man; the film was a heartwarming tale of redemption, love, friendship and family. With the main character as a relative newbie learning how to harness his strength; and finding out that there are other versions of Spider-Man from different dimensions.
What’s Next For Miles?
The film was widely lauded for its unique aesthetic and animation style; and breathtaking visuals, as well as its heartwarming themes of finding one’s identity. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was nominated; and subsequently went on to win an Oscar and a Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film.
It is now being revealed Sony has commenced production on the superhero movie today. Lead Animator Nick Kondo revealed on Twitter to share his enthusiasm.
Kondo tweeted “the first day on the job!” and also included a promotional gif revealing that the sequel is coming in 2022. Though not much is known about the sequel, the plot will address the growing relationship between Miles and Gwen Stacy; the Spider-Woman from another reality. The after-credits scene of the first movie showcased Spider-Man 2099 Miguel O’Hara, so there is a distinct possibility that we will see him in a future film.
As it stands, fans also want for the sequels to include all the Spider-Men from the live-action movies; portrayed by Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland.
After the release of the first film; it was revealed there was an entire scene in production for the original film that had the live-action Spider-Men, but Sony vetoed it opining that it would be too perplexing for audiences.
Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse is currently streaming on Netflix, as of this writing.
