“Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse 2” was one of the many films to feel the wrath of the COVID-19 induced cinematic release shake-up. Originally scheduled to drop in April 2022, fans will now need to wait a little longer to see the famous web-slingers in action, as the movie will now be released on October 7, 2022.
Details about the sequel, including plot, characters, run-time and more are still largely under wraps. But considering how well-received the original film turned out to be, the announcement that production is underway is sure to elate many Spider-Man fans.
