The Spider-Verse Chronicles: What's Next After Across the Spider-Verse

The web of excitement spun by Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse continues to reverberate in the hearts of fans. As the credits roll, a burning question surfaces: What lies ahead? Brace yourselves for a comprehensive dive into the future with Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.

Delayed But Undeterred: The Journey of Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse

Initially slated for a March 29, 2024 release, the eagerly awaited Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse encountered an unexpected detour, leaving its release date in limbo. However, this delay only adds to the anticipation, promising a web-slinging adventure that transcends the expected.

[Spoiler Alert: Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse]

The enigmatic future of Spider-Verse 3's cast fuels fan speculations. The open-ended nature of Across the Spider-Verse allows us to anticipate the return of familiar faces. Prepare for the reprisal of Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles' father, Luna Lauren Vélez as Miles' mother, and a stellar ensemble including Jake Johnson, Jason Schwartzman, Issa Rae, Karan Soni, Daniel Kaluuya, Oscar Isaac, Andy Samberg, Amandla Stenberg, and Mahershala Ali.

Yet, there's plenty to look forward to, as Shameik Moore explained just how "cool" the big twist ending was for Across the Spider-Verse during a zoom call with Esquire. "There was a Peter A. Parker from Miles's universe in the first film, and then Jake Johnson played Peter B. Parker. It's pretty much the same thing. They have [Moonlight's Jharrell Jones] playing that Miles." Jones's criminal Miles will likely test our Miles in a whole new way. "I hope it inspires everybody to pay attention to how they're wearing their mask, and I hope they support me when it's time to talk about this live-action Miles Morales movie," Moore added.

In an interview with Collider, Lord and co-writer Christopher Miller said that although we saw nearly a thousand different Spider-People in the new film, they still have plenty of surprises set up for the next installment. "You thought that you've seen every Spider-Person that you could imagine, but not every Spider-Person we can imagine," Lord joked. Silk, who is a Korean Spider-Woman with her own live-action film in development, has yet to make an appearance. There's also an adorable variant where Uncle Ben becomes Spider-Man and raises a young Peter. That may be a little canon-breaking for this universe, but after all, we're about to go Beyond the Spider-Verse.

The Expanding Spider-Verse: Ongoing Projects and Spinoffs

Insiders at Sony lift the veil on the vast potential of the Spider-Verse. Producers Amy Pascal and Avi Arad confirm active development on a captivating "Spider-Woman" animated spinoff, likely centered around Gwen Stacy. Simultaneously, a live-action film featuring the beloved Miles Morales is in progress. While talks of a fourth live-action film featuring Tom Holland's Spider-Man echo, a writers' strike currently pauses pre-production.

The Spider-Woman spinoff and the live-action Miles projects seemingly unaffected by the strike suggest they're in early development stages. Despite uncertainties, the unwavering optimism expressed by industry stalwarts Pascal and Arad, dedicated to iterating the Spider-franchise, signals a promising cinematic destiny.
