The release date for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Sony's animated sequel to the Oscar-winning film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, has been pushed back from October 7 to June 2, 2023. According to Deadline, the news comes just in time for the studio's CinemaCon presentation next week. Meanwhile, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part II is set for release on March 29, 2024.

The films will be shown in IMAX and premium large formats. The directors of the animated sequel are Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson. The first film grossed over $375 million worldwide.

As a result of the film, Sony has pushed the release date of Josh Gordon and Will Speck's Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile from November 18 to October 7.

In addition, Sony has set July 7, 2023, as the release date for S.J. Clarkson's Spider-Man spinoff, Madame Web, starring Sydney Sweeney and Dakota Johnson.

The Equalizer 3, starring Denzel Washington and directed by Antoine Fuqua, will be released on September 1, 2023.

Devotion, the studio's Korean War film directed by JD Dillard and starring Jonathan Majors and Glen Powell, will open in select theatres on October 14 before expanding on October 21 and going wide on October 28.

In the meantime, Shameik Moore voices Morales alongside Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Lily Tomlin, Luna Lauren Vélez, John Mulaney, Kimiko Glenn, Nicolas Cage, and Liev Schreiber in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Miles Morales is the new Spider-Man in the film, and he joins other Spider-People from various parallel realities to save his universe from the Kingpin.

The film won Best Animated Feature at the 91st Academy Awards, becoming the first non-Disney/Pixar film to do so since Rango (2011) and the first non-Disney/Pixar film to win when a Disney/Pixar film was also nominated since Happy Feet (2006).
