The untitled film comes four years after the original film debuted.
In 2018, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse enthralled audiences with its powerful storytelling and incredible animation style. So, there's no doubt fans wanted more. There has been a lot of buzz about the upcoming untitled sequel, so what can fans expect so far? Miles Morales is definitely coming back!

Currently, the storyline is tightly under wraps. According to Digital Spy, the sequel is being directed by Soul's Kemp Powers, Joaquim Dos Santos, and Justin K Thompson. Dave Callaham – who worked on Shang-Chi – is writing the script with Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, who were the producers of the first film. The first movie's co-director Peter Ramsey is executive producing. The movie might go further into the story of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and build on his relationship with Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld).
Producer Chris Miller has given us a taste of what to expect by saying, "The development of new groundbreaking art techniques being done for the next Spider-Verse movie are already blowing me away. It's going to make the first movie look quaint." This is huge because the first film won Best Animated Feature at the Oscars and the Golden Globes!
Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld will be back as Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy. Jake Johnson will continue to play the disheveled but occasionally wise mentor, Peter B.
Jake Johnson told The Movie Dweeb, "I would like to know what happens with Peter B Parker. I think the way his journey ended in the first movie was very open-ended. And so, when I got word that they were working on a deal and figuring it all out, I thought, 'I truly can't wait to see what the writers came up with.' I'm curious to see what his home life is like."

There are rumors that the trio will be joined by Issa Rae as alternate-reality Spider-Woman, Jessica Drew. Luna Lauren Vélez has revealed that she'll be back as Miles' mother Rio, adding that there's a "wonderful story arc" for her character.
The sequel was originally set to release on April 8, 2022, but that has since been delayed. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 will now hit cinemas on October 7, 2022.
Images for Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel were released online along with the caption "Look out and see a multiverse of possibilities ahead of you." There's Spider-Man in his classic red suit, but many fans are left to wonder who the face behind the mask is. Who do you think it is?
