‘Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse’ In Production, Teases “Very Satisfying Conclusion”

With the first two movies of the animated Spider-Verse trilogy finding critical acclaim and overwhelming popularity, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse has a lot to live up to. But as the saying goes, third time’s the charm, and producer Chris Miller assures fans that the upcoming threequel will wrap things up nicely.

The update comes by the way of a clip posted on X/Twitter by film critic Jonathan Sim, who attended the Across the Spider-Verse FYC event in New York City. “We’re in production…we’re really excited about where the story is going, I think it’s a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy and it’s as emotional as the other ones…we’re knee-deep in it,” said Miller on stage.

FYC, or “For Your Consideration” events usually include a panel discussion with actors and writers sharing about past installments of a contending entry. While the video doesn’t reveal much else, it’s safe to assume that “knee-deep” means the movie’s release is still a ways off. The highly-anticipated follow-up was originally planned for March 2024 premiere, but the writers and SAG-AFTRA strikes changed those plans. As of now, it’s no longer on Sony’s release schedule.

In an interview with Digital Spy, Miller stated that although fans are in for an extended wait, the pay-off will be worth the wait. “[It will come] when it’s ready. Those conversations are thankfully above our pay grade, but I can tell we’re already heard at work on it, and we’ll take the time it takes to make it great,” he said.

Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse Runtime

Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse will complete the story of Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy. Across the Spider-Verse, the sequel to the first film, was released in June this year and ended its theatrical run with a global haul of US$690 million. The feature is also an Animated Feature nominee for next year’s Oscars, though its success has come at a price – a report from Vulture shed light on the crunch and gruelling work conditions that animators went through while working on the project.

Hopefully, there won’t be a repeat when Miles swings back into theatres sometime in the future.
