Back in November, Sony officially announced that the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse would be coming on April 8, 2022. However, even animated films aren’t immune to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Subsequently, Sony’s Spider-Verse Twitter account has confirmed that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 will now be hitting theaters on October 7, 2022.

Joaquim Dos Santos (Voltron: Legendary Defenders) will direct the upcoming sequel. He will also be joined by screenwriter David Callaham, whose previous credits include Wonder Woman 1984 and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller produced the first Into the Spider-Verse. Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman co-directed the original, while Lord wrote the screenplay.
Shameik Moore portrayed Miles Morales in the first movie, while Jake Johnson voiced Peter B. Parker, and Hailee Steinfeld appeared as Spider-Gwen. John Mulaney also co-starred as Spider-Ham, alongside Kimiko Glenn as Peni Parker, Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir, Brian Tyree Henry as Jefferson Davis, Luna Lauren Velez as Rio Morales. Additionally, the post-credits scene introduced Oscar Isaac’s Miguel O’Hara, the Spider-Man of 2099. Presumably they will all return for the sequel.
