“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part One” has been delayed from October 7th of this year until June 2, 2023. Part 2 will arrive on March 29, 2024.
The sequel will see the return of Shameik Moore (as main hero Miles Morales) and Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld (as Gwen Stacy, a.k.a. Spider-Gwen). Emmy nominee Issa Rae will play Jessica Drew aka Spider-Woman. Joaquim Dos Santos (“The Legend of Korra” and “Avatar: The Last Airbender”), Justin K. Thompson and Oscar nomimee Kemp Powers (“Soul”) are directing the sequel, while Oscar winners Phil Lord and Chris Miller are returning to produce and write the screenplay once again. This time around they co-wrote the script with David Callaham (“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”).
Now surprisingly another Spider-Man related project has actually bumped up its release date. The Dakota Johnson “Madame Web” film will debut in theaters July 2023, just one month after Spider-Verse 2.
Madame Web is part of the Sony Spider-Man Universe, which so far includes Venom, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and the recently released Morbius. Not much is known about the project, although the character has been described as similar to Doctor Strange. With the multiverse playing a big part in Spider-Man: No Way Home and used for the end-credit sequence of Morbius, a character like Madame Web, who in the comics has a connection to the multiverse, makes her an important character in Sony’s plans to build out their franchise.
