Lord and Miller say Spider-man: Beyond the Spider-verse will only be released when it’s ready

September 12th, 2023 by Marc Comments

We at FTN towers were devastated to hear that, contrary to previous announcements, the third and final Miles Morales movie, Spider-man: Beyond the Spider-verse, would not be released next March as planned… in fact, it was removed from Sony’s upcoming schedule altogether!


But don’t fear, it’s still coming, they just don’t know when, but it will only be “when it is ready,” say writers/producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller couldn’t confirm exactly when we’d get to see the Across the Spider-Verse sequel, yet assured fans it’ll be released “when it is ready”.

As for when the new release date will be? Well…

“Those conversations are thankfully above our paygrade,” the duo say, “but [we] can tell you we’re already hard at work on it, and we’ll take the time it takes to make it great.” 

Beyond the Spider-verse looking unlikely to release in March…

Bringing the closing chapter to this trilogy is no mean feat, it fairness; the first movie in 2018, Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse was an absolute revelation when it came out; just as superhero movies were starting to become stale, the animated movie came out and looked, felt and sounded unlike anything we’d seen in the comic-book movie arena. When the second movie came out a few months ago, it did it all over again.

“What we’re trying to accomplish with the film is have it be the most satisfying conclusion to the story than it can be,” say Lord and Miller, “and take it to places that you haven’t been before. And make you laugh and cry, and cheer and think,”

Was I excited for the third Miles movie in March next year? Damn right, I was. Am I happy that they’re going to take however long they need to wrap the story up properly? Yes, yes I am, and you should be too.

Thoughts? I know you have them! Voice-off in the usual ways on FTN’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
