Sony’s Spider-Verse Films Shift Release Dates

Fans of Sony’s Spider-Verse have had quite a feast for the past few months. From Venom: Let There Be Carnage to Spider-Man: No Way Home to the recently released Morbius, there has been more than enough content to keep fans entertained.

While the train was supposed to keep on going with the release of the animated Across the Spider-Verse this October, Sony has announced today that the world have to wait a little bit longer. Instead of releasing in theaters on October 7, 2022, the film will now be released on June 2, 2023.

The news comes just as the studio was gearing up for its formal presentation at CinemaCon next week.

Additionally, the film’s already planned sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part II has shifted dates as well and will now hit theaters 9 months later on March 29, 2024.

There was some good news in Sony’s announcement though. The planned live action adaptation of Madame Web, starring Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney, finally received a release date of July 7, 2023.

Interestingly enough, the only film not impacted by the move was Kraven the Hunter, which is currently in production. By default, that will now be the next Spider-Verse film to hit theaters.

Conversely, Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson are at the helm of Across the Spider-Verse, while S.J. Clarkson is confirmed to be directing Madame Web.
