Spider-Man: Beyond The Spider-Verse Gets Release Date Update After Indefinite Delay

Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse gets a release date update after the movie was delayed indefinitely. As part of Sony’s Marvel movie release date changes, it was revealed that Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse would not be released on its original March 29, 2024, release date. The third film in the animated Spider-Man trilogy was removed from Sony’s release schedule, with no hints of when it could be released.
During an interview with Digital Spy, Spider-Verse franchise writers/producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller shared a new update regarding Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse’s release date. According to the duo, the movie will release “when it is ready”. Lord explained the lack of a concrete release date for the film in their answer, saying, “Those conversations are thankfully above our paygrade, but I can tell you we’re already hard at work on it, and we’ll take the time it takes to make it great.”

Why Spider-Man: Beyond The Spider-Verse Was Delayed

Hollywood is currently undergoing two major strikes that have deeply affected a wide array of movies and TV shows, and Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse is another victim of the situation. The Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA strikes have stopped the work of writers and actors, which has caused several projects to get delayed or pause production indefinitely.
When it was announced that Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse had been delayed, Variety reported that the move was because the film’s voice cast, which includes Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, and Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker, among others, could not complete the dialogue recording for the animate trilogy’s finale in time for the original March 29, 2024, release date due to the ongoing actors’ strike.
Another possible reason that could have impacted the movie being delayed indefinitely is related to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s bad working conditions report. The report from Vulture saw a worker on the movie claim that Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse would never meet its original release date, saying, “as far as the production side goes, the only progress that’s been made on the third one is any exploration or tests that were done before the movie was split into two parts.” The film was then delayed a month later, and it’s likely that any Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse release date updates will only come after the actors’ strike is over.
