So, when is the 'Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse' release date?

In 2011, comics legend Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli created Miles Morales for Marvel Comics following the fictional death of Peter Parker. Miles is the main character of the Spider-Verse animated saga, and he begins his heroic journey as a 13-year-old biracial student living in New York City.

In 2015, Marvel legend and Spider-Man creator Stan Lee spoke to Newsarama (per Bustle) about Miles and said he was created to be a role model for children of color.

Stan said, "What I like about the costume is that anybody reading Spider-Man in any part of the world can imagine that they themselves are under the costume. And that’s a good thing."

Fans of Miles Morales have been eager for a sequel film after Into the Spider-Verse was released on Dec. 14, 2018. In 2020, Sony Pictures Animation announced two sequels featuring different Spider-People from other timelines and universes: Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part One and Part Two.

Aside from the Spider-Verse franchise, Sony began developing an animated Spider-Women film that would star Hailee Steinfeld's Gwen Stacy, Issa Rae's Spider-Woman, and Cindy Moon/Silk. Across the Spider-Verse is reportedly a "launching pad" for the Spider-Women franchise, so perhaps fans can expect to see a Cindy Moon cameo in Part One or Part Two!
