As great as Spider-Man: No Way Home was, there's another Spidey Multiverse movie that ranks among some of the best films ever for many fans: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The film saw Miles Morales take over the role of Spider-Man after the untimely death of Peter Parker, only to get pulled into a Kingpin-led scheme that brought several other Spider-People over into his dimension.
Critics and fans alike raved about the film, and it's become something of a modern classic. Needless to say, many are looking forward to its sequel, Across the Spider-Verse, which was sadly recently delayed until June 2, 2023.
As disappointing as the news may be, Sony just revealed at CinemaCon that the project is set to have 240 characters, explore 6 different universes, and it has roughly 1,000 people working on it—so they have a lot of work to do. Hopefully it lives up to the massive hype which will have boiled to a breaking point by the time the movie actually releases.
That was far from Sony's only announcement at the convention—in fact, they also revealed the third Spider-Verse entry has a new name.
Spider-Verse 3 Title Revealed
Sony Pictures gave a presentation at CinemaCon 2022, where the studio showed off the first fifteen minutes of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Following this, they also announced the proper name of the third entry in the series: Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.
This threequel was first announced with the title Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part Two), and now it's set for release on March 29, 2024.
What is Beyond the Spider-Verse?
The biggest question now is: just what could actually be beyond the Spider-Verse? Without even knowing what Across the Spider-Verse is about, it's hard to make even an educated guess as to what may happen in the final movie of the trilogy.
There's certainly an enormous sense of scope being suggested by the title alone. Maybe all the Spider-People's adventures end up fracturing the Multiverse itself, leading the group to gain access to (or fall into) places outside of the Spider-Verse's plane of existence? It's a lot to think about, no doubt. Maybe fans will get some live-action scenes?
With how grand the plot seems to get, it would be hard to believe that the Inheritors aren't the antagonists of the story at one point or another. For those who don't know, they served as the villains of the original Spider-Verse comic event, where they went across the Multiverse killing Spider Totems (people)—an action that feeds their very life forces.
Miles certainly has quite the adventure ahead of him.
Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse releases on March 29, 2024.
