There were several updates dropped during Sony's panel at CinemaCon including a lot of interesting news about the Spider-Verse sequels. The first 15 minutes of Spider-Man: Across the Universe was screened followed by a cool update on the second part. The third movie will now be called Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse. In addition to that, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller shared new details about the film.
"We had to try and break new ground, so it's way bigger," they said. "The number of characters [is massive]. The first movie has 40. This one has 240 characters." Fans were quick to note that that's more characters than Avengers: Endgame.
In addition to having more characters, the producers confirmed that there are over 1000 people working on the films. They also revealed that the film starts out in Spider-Gwen's homeworld Earth-65 before continuing to Earth-160 which is where Miles Morales lives. In addition to that, Miller said that six different universes are involved in the movie "so far".
These are exciting updates and based on the footage from Across the Spider-Verse that was screened at the panel, the sequels will be worth the hype. With that in mind, we can't wait to see the official trailers for these movies.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has been pushed back and will premiere on June 2, 2023. The third film Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse is scheduled for release in March 2024.
