The lead animator on the sequel to Sony’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse confirmed production is officially underway.
Although Sony pushed its sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse from April 2022 to October 7 2022, production has finally begun on the animated blockbuster. After the first film debuted to critical and commercial success, a sequel was quickly greenlit alongside an all-female spin-off starring Hailee Steinfeld, although the star isn’t aware what’s happening with the other project just yet. However, work has finally begun on the main sequel to Into the Spider-Verse.
Nick Kondo, lead animator on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sequel, took to Twitter to announce the first day of production on the film, posting the clip of Miles Morales’ symbol glitching into alternate designs with the soundtrack playing over the top. There’s still over two years to wait until the Spider-Man sequel arrives, but at least its finally in the works.
