I feel pain…pain like no other because Sony has delayed Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse part 1 & 2.
Here’s what Deadline has reported:
Sony’s animated sequel to the Oscar winning movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is moving from Oct. 7 this year to June 2, 2023. The news is breaking just before the studio’s presentation at CinemaCon next week.
Meanwhile, the pic’s sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part II, is dated for March 29, 2024.
There’s no information about why Sony delayed the films (they delayed other films as well), but I’ll just put all my blame on Morbius. I know the wait would be worth it since it gives the animators more time to add or polish up scenes. Again, I’ll blame Morbius.
