Marvel fans share painful reaction to Sony delaying Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Marvel fans share painful reaction to Sony delaying Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse won’t be gracing the big screens this 2022. Sony Pictures have announced the decision to reschedule the second installment’s theatre release to June 2, 2023. The sequel from writer Phil Lord and Christopher Miller featuring Miles Morales’ (voiced by Shameik Moore) Spidey was set to arrive this October and news of its delay hasn’t been taken lightly by Marvel fans.

Part 1’s delay has in turn put Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part II for March 29, 2024 release. The anticipated sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse had fans thrilled after a two-minute first look trailer offered a glimpse at the film’s art style as well as Morales’ new Spidey friends, Oscar Isaac’s Miguel O’Hara, Spider-Man 2099. Hailee Steinfeld, reprising Spider-Qwen is also a prominent part of the film.

Unfortunately, the painstaking long wait has put fans’ patience to the test with many already sharing their disappointment over the Spider-Verse delay, as expressed in the tweets below.

This Moon Knight episode 4 meme expresses fan’s disappointment in the best way possible.

In Lord’s defense, he did reassure his laughing emoji reaction is not related to the Spider-Verse delay.

On a brighter note, Sony has attached a release date for Madame Web, a Spider-Man universe-centric feature based on Marvel comics starring Dakota Johnson and Syndey Sweeney with S.J. Clarkson helming.

With Across the Spider-Verse landing a Quarter 2 release, it stacks the animated Marvel blockbuster against another multiverse flick releasing the same month, The Flash. Warner Bros. Discovery’s standalone speedster movie continues to be enwrapped with Ezra Miller’s controversy. However, it hasn’t resulted in any changes to its release schedule (June 23, 2023) so far.

Interestingly, Sony has two Marvel flicks releasing back to back from June to July. If the studio plays their cards right, the two blockbusters are sure to attract big numbers at the global box office. But hopefully, the fandom can keep their excitement at bay and perhaps revisit Morbius in the meantime? The Jared Leto featuring Vampire movie is still in theatres in the US, for those wondering.
