The highly anticipated third installment will reunite the talented creative team behind the franchise.

Although delays are always a potential concern in the world of filmmaking, let’s remain optimistic that the release of Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse stays on schedule.

Who’s coming back for Spider-Verse 3?

The casting for Beyond the Spider-Verse is yet to be officially confirmed, but we can make educated guesses about the returning actors.

Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld are likely to reprise their roles as Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy, respectively. Additionally, it’s expected that Oscar Isaac will join as Miguel O’Hara (Spider-Man 2099), Issa Rae as Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman), and Daniel Kaluuya as Hobie Brown (Spider-Punk).

Other anticipated returns include Jason Schwartzman as The Spot, Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker, Karan Soni as Pavitr Prabhakar (Spider-Man India), and, of course, Brian Tyree Henry and Luna Lauren Vélez as Miles’s parents, Jefferson Davis and Rio Morales.

Please be aware that the following information contains spoilers for Across the Spider-Verse, so if you haven’t seen the movie, you may want to avoid reading further.

At the conclusion of Across the Spider-Verse, Gwen assembles her own team of Spider-Men from various dimensions, including Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, and Peni Parker from the previous film.

With this development, it is hoped that Nicolas Cage, John Mulaney, and Kimiko Glenn will reprise their respective Spider roles in the upcoming movie.

The sequel introduced even more Spider-People, such as Andy Samberg as Ben Reilly (Scarlet Spider) and Amandla Stenberg as Margo Kess (Spider-Byte). However, it appears that there are still more surprises in store.

“Believe it or not, you may have thought you’ve seen every imaginable Spider-Person, but there are still more Spider-People we can bring to life,” Lord teased in an interview with Collider.

Fans eagerly anticipate what’s to come.

What awaits us in the plot of Spider-Verse 3: Beyond the Spider-Verse?

While an official plot synopsis for Beyond the Spider-Verse is currently unavailable, the ending of Across the Spider-Verse sets up an intriguing premise for the next installment.

At the conclusion of the film, Miles finds himself trapped in Earth-42, facing the ominous presence of that universe’s version of himself, who goes by the name Prowler. In this alternate reality, Miles’s mother is romantically involved with his uncle Aaron Davis, and his father has tragically passed away.

Interestingly, this particular universe lacks a Spider-Man, as the spider that originally bit Miles was transported to his own universe (Earth-1610) by the character known as The Spot.

Fortunately, there is hope for Miles as Gwen and her newly-formed team of Spider-People embark on a mission to rescue him, once they determine his precise location. The stage is set for an exciting adventure as they race against time to bring Miles back home.

In Beyond the Spider-Verse, the urgency for Miles to return to his own universe intensifies, as The Spot plans to kill his father upon becoming the police captain. This impending event holds significant importance in Miles’s timeline, and he is determined to prevent it. However, Miguel, driven by a desire to protect the Spider-Verse, supports the event and its consequences.

The clash between Miles, Gwen, and their allies, and Miguel, Jessica, and the Spider Society, forms the core conflict of Beyond the Spider-Verse. The story revolves around Miles’s relentless pursuit to save his father. This battle is anticipated to push the boundaries of the Spider-Verse, potentially venturing into uncharted territories.

Phil Lord, one of the film’s creators, hinted at the meaning behind the title, stating, “It means a lot of things, but it also means we see a sort of map representation of the known Spider-Verse, but there are things that can exist outside of that web of life and destiny, if you will,” during an interview with Collider.

Similar to how the sequel introduced an alternate version of Miles, the third installment is expected to showcase at least one different iteration of Gwen Stacy. While details may evolve during the filmmaking process, the presence of another Gwen Stacy variation is mentioned by Lord during the Crew Call podcast.

With these intriguing elements in play, Beyond the Spider-Verse promises an exhilarating and unpredictable adventure for its beloved characters.

In addition, Phil Lord hinted that the death of Gwen Stacy storyline from the comics may unfold with one of the alternate versions of Gwen in Beyond the Spider-Verse. While he remained tight-lipped about the details, he mentioned that it holds significant importance to the plot, stating, “I’m not gonna say anything… But it is sort of plot-integral, I would say.”

As for any potential spoilers from the cast, Shameik Moore revealed that he hadn’t seen a script for the sequel. He expressed his excitement and compared the experience of reading the script for the first time to the anticipation of watching the finished film, stating, “I think my reaction is that what it would have felt like reading for the first time is probably very similar to watching it in its entirety for the first time. I didn’t know a lot of the things ever happening in this film until I saw it. I’m excited for the next round.”

This suggests that the creative team behind Beyond the Spider-Verse is keen on preserving surprises and delivering an immersive and unexpected viewing experience for both the cast and the audience.

When can we expect the first Beyond the Spider-Verse trailer?

As of now, there is no footage available for Beyond the Spider-Verse in any trailers or teasers. In the past, for Across the Spider-Verse, the first teaser was released in December 2021 when the movie was originally scheduled for an October 2022 release. The first trailer followed in December 2022, ahead of the film’s eventual release in June 2023.

If the release timeline for Beyond the Spider-Verse follows a similar pattern, we might expect the first trailer to potentially drop around September or October 2022, considering the movie’s projected release date of March 2024. However, this is purely speculative at this point, and official information regarding the trailer’s release is yet to be announced.
