You guys guessed it right! It’s official. Yes, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 is all set to release on 8th April 2020. The news was announced on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s official twitter account. Writer and producer Christopher Miller also shared the release date on his Twitter account.
Filming is yet to be started, and then we can predict trailer release dates more accurately. Though it’s a long wait, we will keep updating you!
Since the creators of the sci-fi series are quiet about the cast and keeping it under the covers, we can at least expect Moore and Steinfeld to reprise their roles. It is free for speculation that the short appearance of Isaac’s Spider-man 2099 meant that the actor is one of the new characters that will be added to the sequel. Following the first flick, Prowler may be out of the mix, but Schreiber’s Kingpin could make a return. Also, the dangerously cunning Doc Ock is likely to return.
Apart from those previously mentioned, Into the Spider-Verse also presented:
• Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker
• Kimiko Glenn as Peni Parker
• Liev Schreiber as Fisk
• Mahershala Ali as Prowler
Hence these characters are likely to return to the screen, although nothing is confirmed yet.
BUT, in late 2019, it was confirmed that a new character named Takuya Yamashiro would be another character introduced in the sequel. However, it’s still not known which actor will lend his voice to this famous protagonist of a Japanese live-action TV adaptation.
In an interview, co-producer Phil Lord revealed that the second flick would heavily focus on the romance between lead teen Miles Morales and his interdimensional fellow web-slinger Gwen Stacy. But it will also focus on other spider-men and women, especially on Silk, a former classmate of Parker and Spider-Punk.
