Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Sequel Has Started Production

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Sequel Has Started Production

The highly-anticipated sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is finally in production.

Nick Kondo, lead animator for Sony Imageworks, uploaded a short video claiming that the follow-up to the award-winning movie will be released in 2022. He added the caption 'first day on the job'.

There's very little information about what might happen in the sequel but at least we've got at least a year and a half to find out.

Producer Amy Pascal revealed last year that it would be mad not to turn the original film into a franchise. Not only was it loved by fans, but it also got high praise from critics and bagged an Oscar for Best Animated Feature.

Speaking to io9, she said: "We are definitely hard at work on the sequel. You can expect another movie."

Fans have been expecting a sequel since before the original movie was even released, with producer Phil Lord telling ComicBook.com the Spider-Man flick was 'the tip of the iceberg'.

He added: "You could imagine all of these other things. So it's music to our ears that people could imagine a Spider-Noir film, and the Spider-Ham insane cartoon."

Fellow producer Chris Miller said: "I think there's a bunch [of possible characters], and I don't want to say too much because there's a wide breadth of characters that are coming out of the Spider-Man universes now.

"And it's really fun to be able to sort of think about plucking ones that you haven't seen before or have something interesting thematic to say."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joaquim Dos Santos - who has previously worked on Avatar: The Last Airbender - has been asked to work on the sequel, while Zombieland 2 and Expendables writer David Callaham has also been called on to pen the story.

Aside from this, there's reportedly set to be a spin-off, which centres on the female characters within in the Spider-Man universe.
