Sony announces Spider-Man: Beyond The Spider-Verse will be the title of the upcoming third installment of its animated Marvel movie series.
Before Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has even come out, Sony has revealed the title for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 3 as Beyond the Spider-Verse. Sony Pictures has been upping their Spider-Man game over the last few years. Following a collaboration with Marvel Studios, Sony completed their latest Spider-Man live-action trilogy with Tom Holland as the MCU’s web-slinger in December 2021. However, the animation front hasn’t been holding back either following the massive success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
With the colossal idea that is the Spider-Verse, Sony took advantage of the popular Marvel concept, at the same time introducing Miles Morales in his own franchise. While serving as his cinematic debut, the first film followed Miles discovering the existence of other Spider-Man heroes across the many realities that exist in the Multiverse. Not only did Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse become a commercial and critical success, it earned an Oscar for Best Animated Film. Almost four years since the first film, Sony has the highly anticipated two-parter Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse coming in 2023.

Despite Across the Spider-Verse not having coming out yet, Sony is moving ahead with future plans for the Spider-Verse franchise. During this year’s CinemaCon, the studio officially announced the title for Spider-Verse 3, which will be called Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse. This comes shortly after the big twist that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse had been delayed from October 7, 2022, to June 2, 2023. Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse will be hitting theaters on March 29, 2024.
While the two upcoming installments will still be heavily relying on each other, having each Spider-Verse film go with its own distinct title gives it a better flow as opposed to parts I and II. Something like Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse makes the trilogy’s upcoming finale sound even more ambiguous, which opens the door for many possibilities. Despite the extended delay likely being disappointing to many, it only allows the creative team time to polish and make the sequels even better. Given how spectacular Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was, the extra time is a blessing in disguise, even if it means having to wait roughly another year.
Now that Sony has solidified its plans for the next two Spider-Verse films, things will likely also start to move forward for the female-centric Spider-Verse spinoff that is in the works. After being announced in 2018, Sony hasn’t really given a lot of updates about the mystery offshoot that will reportedly follow Spider-Gwen and Spider-Woman, with the latter being voiced by Issa Rae, who is making her debut in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Since Spider-Verse 2 has to hit theaters first, fans will most certainly have to wait for quite some time before getting fresh details on the spinoff or the third installment, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.
