The GOAT team have a soft spot for most of the Spider-Man films that come out (except for the Andrew Garfield ones) and while we dig what Tom Holland has done with the character, the greatest ever Spidey film is undoubtedly Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
It’s warm, emotional, the animation looks utterly brilliant, retells the old “great power comes great responsibility” Spider-Man story in a refreshing way and has one of the greatest movie soundtracks in recent memory. It even has Nic Cage in it for god’s sake.
That’s why it pleases me to no end to report that Into the Spider-Verse is getting the sequel it deserves. According to a tweet from the official Spider-Verse Twitter account, the sequel is going to drop on April 8, 2022, which is a bit of a wait but hey, I’ll gladly wait however long it takes for the film to be great.
Beyond that, we actually don’t know what’s in store for us with Into The Spider-Verse 2 other than it’ll pick up where the first film left off. Since no details have been confirmed, let’s indulge in some baseless speculation and question asking instead.
Will we see Spider-Gwen, fat Peter Parker and all the other Spidey counterparts meet up with Miles Morales again? Will there be other Spider-Man appearances from different universes? Is Tom Holland going to make an appearance of some sorts given the Marvel/Sony deal that’s going?
Are we going to get a pay-off for that great post-credits scene in the first film where we got introduced to Oscar Isaac’s Miguel O’Hara? Does the multiple flashes of the Miles Morales Spider-Man logo in the teaser clip suggest we’ll see different versions of himself this time around?
What’s the music going to be like? Is Post Malone going to write another banger on the level of ‘Sunflower’ for the sequel?
So many questions yet literally no answers.
With the April 8, 2022 release date set, we’ve got more than enough time to speculate. In the meantime, it just means we’re due for another rewatch of Into The Spider-Verse, not that you really need an excuse to watch it again anyway.
