'Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse' sequel announced, eyeing a 2022 release
The success of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse has established Miles Morales, the new Spidey on the block, in a solid way, despite the raging fan fever surrounding Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man portrayals. Peter Parker is done-to-death storyline, so Morales looks like the way forward. And now, a Twitter update about the sequel of the animated movie has revived the hype.
The official Twitter page of the franchise gave Spider-Man fans a big gift on January 1 by posting two images showing the superhero in what seems like a lit underground tunnel. The caption read: "One year closer to 2022." This means, the movie will release on October 7, 2022, which honestly is a long wait for ardent followers, because 2021 has just started!

Amplifying that excitement, an artwork on Miles Morales, recently uploaded, reimagined the lanky teen lass as a veteran, oozing out the looks of pure strategy and experience. It was a fan-art by Gryphon509. It showed Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad fame in the role, with grey hair and droopy eyes. Even Esposito shared the art, surprised to see himself in that form.
The sequel has been under production since long, as per senior animator Nick Kondo. There is no confirmation on the cast of the film, but as far as the plotline is concerned, producer Amy Pascal had revealed that the sequel would start from where the first film had ended. Reportedly, there will also be intense chemistry between Miles and Gwen Stacy.
To add to the fun, Golden Globe nominee Daniel Pemberton, who had scored soundtrack for the first movie, which had won an Academy Award, has announced his return in the sequel. Pemberton took to Twitter on December 14 to announce his involvement in the sequel that will be directed by Joaquim Dos Santos and created by studio Sony Pictures Imageworks. Get ready to groove!
