There is no shortage of great Spider-Man films to choose from whether one finds themselves a fan of Tom Holland’s MCU webhead or is someone who kicks it old school with some sweet Sam Raimi Spider-Man action with Toby Maguire web-slinging his way to save the day. But for many, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is arguably the best of the rest, and many are more than eager to know more about Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse told the well-crafted story of Marvel fan favorite neighborhood wall-crawler Miles Morales who takes on a group of villains including Olivia Octavius, Kingpin, Scorpion, and the Prowler. To help in this challenging endeavor is that of Spider-Woman, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, Peni Parker / SP//dr, and Peter Parker, who are all from different dimensions in the Multiverse aka Spider-Verse.
The first film was a massive success receiving critical acclaim, highlighting its animation style, characters, story, humor, and soundtrack, among other things. The feature received an array of nominations and awards from some of the industry’s biggest honors, including Best Animated Feature awards at the 46th Annie Awards, the 76th Golden Globe Awards, and the 91st Academy Awards.
Thanks to the new deal Sony has with Netflix, subscribers know the next chapter will be a fine addition to the platform’s already great library. Given all of this, it’s no surprise that everyone is very curious to learn everything they can about Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2, so they don’t miss any of what’s in store when it finally arrives.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 release date
The highly anticipated sequel was initially set to release on April 8, 2022, but like most productions in today’s world, it was forced to delay things, much to the dismay of fans. But then it was announced that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 would be premiering in theaters on October 7, 2022.

It should also be known that the deal Sony place with Netflix and films from the studio will premiere on the streaming service after the home entertainment window closes, which according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, is about a year and a half after the movie’s premiere. This agreement starts in 2022, so Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 will be one of those movies.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 cast
Nothing has been officially announced as to what the roster will look like for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2, but many fans have a pretty good idea of what the lineup will look like when it’s all said and done. Shameik Moore would most assuredly return as Miles Morales, and many are very hopeful that Hailee Steinfeld comes back as Gwen, aka Spider-Woman.
Other members from the original flick’s cast that would be an ideal addition to the sequel include Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Velez, Kathryn Hahn, Jenny Slate, and Oscar Isaac. MCU Spider-Man Tom Holland was supposed to have a cameo in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse that was cut, and the next outing could have an animated version of him in the mix.
As far as what new Spider heroes could make their way into Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2, there are a lot of options, including Silk and Spider-Punk, whom Chris Miller and Phil Lord have mentioned adding in the past. They also indicate that they would like to see Spider-Man: Takuya Yamashiro from the 197s Japanese series as well.
There is some confirmation of a new addition to the next film, which Phil Lord announced on Twitter after witnessing a glitch a player experienced playing the Spider-Man PlayStation game. Don’t be shocked if a patio heater Spider-Man makes swings across the screen when the film hits the big screen.

It will probably showcase in more detail his budding love story with Gwen that was hinted at in the previous film.
It may be a while before any official synopsis for the sequel is released. Look for something of that nature much closer to the release date.
