While “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is set to be released this Friday, June 2, the producers are focused on the release of the third film of the trilogy, “Beyond the Spider-Verse”, which is set to release in theaters in 2024.
In the second movie of the trilogy, “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse”, the fans will see the return of Shameik Moore as Miles Morales and Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy. But this is not the only project the producers are giving attention to as producer Amy Pascal, on one hand, has confirmed that Spider–Woman and live-action Miles Morales movies are underway. “You’ll see all of it. It’s all happening”, she said to entertainment magazine Variety at the premiere of “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” in Los Angeles.
On the other hand, producer Avi Arad has said that “Spider-Woman” will hit the theaters “sooner than expected”.
This indicates that Steinfeld will go solo for “Spider-Woman”. Talking about the voiceover, she said, “This is like my dream job, sign me up over and over again. I got to be comfortable! And it’s a dream to be in a space that feels so comfortable but also creative and free and just exciting to be a part of.”
Pascal also made it clear that Tom Holland and Zendaya are still working on the fourth “Spider-Man” movie, which is put on halt due to a writers’ strike. She said, “Are we going to make another movie? Of course, we are. We’re in the process, but with the writers’ strike, nobody is working during the strike. We’re all being supporters and whenever they get themselves together, we’ll get started.”
Tom Rothman, head of Sony, was way more secretive regarding the future. He laughed and said, “If I told you, I’d have to kill you.”
“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Justine K. Thompson, and Kemp Powers and will hit the theaters on June 2. Apart from Moore and Steinfeld, the cast includes Issa Rae, Daniel Kaluuya, Jason Schwartzman, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Velez, Rachel Dratch, Shea Whigham, Leland “Metro Boomin” Wayne, Ziggy Marley, Ayo Edebiri, and Danielle Perez.
