'Spider-Man: Beyond The Spider-Verse' Delayed Indefinitely

Unless you've been living under a rock you can't have helped but noticed that Hollywood is in chaos. For the first time in many decades, both the writers (WGA) and actors (SAG) are on strike. In both cases, the union members are seeking better pay and reassurance around the use of artificial intelligence.

The strikes will inevitably lead to delays, as films and TV shows are put on hold. Sony has announced delays to its upcoming slate, with many of its 2023 releases pushed into next year. In the case of Spider-Man: Beyond The Spider-Verse however, it has been removed from the schedule entirely. Should we be worried?

Beyond The Spider-Verse is the third instalment in the Spider-Verse trilogy, following on from the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and Spider-Man Across The Spider-Verse. It was originally scheduled to open on March 29, 2024.

The official line is that the delay is down to the fact that the actors won't be able to record their lines in time. However, some have been anticipating this news coming for a while. In an article published shortly after the film's release, an anonymous source who worked on the second movie said there was "no way" the movie would make its originally slated March 2024 release date.

The film has yet to be given a new release date, although we're told to expect one in the coming weeks. News of the delay is definitely disappointing but hopefully the extra time will be put to good use.

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse opened in June to rapturous reviews and impressive box office. The film has taken in $379,024,031 at the US box office and $303,226,887 internationally.
