Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is what many consider to be one of the best comic book films of all time, and it even took home the Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2019. The film’s sequel will see Miles’s journey continue in the two-part follow-up, Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse.
The sequel was presented at Sony’s CinemaCon panel, with directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller taking the stage to announce the third installment, Spider-Man: Beyond The Spider-Verse. They also teased the scope and scale of the upcoming films.
We told him it would the same size as the last one but we couldn’t. It’s the largest crew of an animated movie ever. This movie has 1,000 people working on it. Don’t tell Tom (Rothman). The number of characters. This movie has 240 characters. Please don’t tell Tom. It takes place in six universes. That’s we couldn’t do the sizzle reel.Phil Lord and Chris Miller
Lord and Miller also treated the audience to the first 15 minutes of the movie. The scene in question featured the return of Hailee Steinfeld’s Spider-Gwen alongside Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099 as they face off against the Vulture of Earth-65. The footage also features Issa Rae’s Jessica Drew.
