Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse star offers update on delayed sequel

Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse actor Brian Tyree Henry has offered fans a promising update on the delayed sequel.

The direct follow-up to Across the Spider-Verse was originally scheduled for release in March 2024. However, this date was delayed indefinitely last year due to the actors' strike in Hollywood, preventing the animated film's cast from completing the recording process.

The strike was eventually resolved in November after SAG-AFTRA reached a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), and Henry has now confirmed that production on the third film is back "in the works".

The actor, who voiced Jeff Morales in the first two Spider-Verse films and will reprise the role for the third, confirmed the news during a new interview with Deadline.

"It's in the works, it's coming," he shared after being asked if the cast had gotten back into the recording booth yet. "It's in the works, for sure, and that one is even more epic than the last".

Shameik Moore, who voices Miles Morales, also provided fans with an update last month by teasing a little bit about what we can expect.

"You can expect Miles and Gwen. You can expect everything you're expecting [from] the continuation from the second one," he said.

"You can expect to see The Spot. You can expect some action-packed energy and some dilemmas and problems to solve."

While fans wait for the film to make it to the big screen, they can enjoy a new short Spider-Verse movie that's available to watch for free on YouTube right now.

The Spider Within: A Spider-Verse Story follows Miles as he struggles to balance his responsibilities as Spider-Man.
