‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ Was Supposed to be Released This Weekend
There is no shortage of phenomenal comic book films, but we cannot help but be sad when we remember that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was supposed to be released this weekend.
It is an undeniable fact that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is among the greatest achievements in the vast and growing history of comic book adaptations in film.
Despite the rather inconsistent history of Sony’s work with the Spider-Man franchise, many would argue that the big-screen adaptation of Miles Morales origin story is among its greatest works.
It was a film that accomplished so much more than simply telling a truly fantastic Spider-Man story, as it clearly operated with a level of ambition perfectly fit with the medium of animation; stretching the technology to its very limits.
The film was focused on bringing to life a brand new world, something very different from anything we’ve ever seen in a Spider-Man story, while also being something that so perfectly felt like a brilliantly told Spider-Man story.
Miles Morales was an instant fan favorite, as he represented everything that makes Spider-Man a timeless classic and the greatest comic book character of all time; him learning firsthand from Peter B. Parker and the original Spider-Man.
With the incredible success of the film, it was certainly sad when the pandemic robbed moviegoers from their chance to see the long-awaited, and highly anticipated- sequel, as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was supposed to be released this weekend.
Thats right Marvel fans, the film was originally slated for an April 8th release date, which would have placed us just on the tail end of its opening weekend; a fact that certainly makes us sad.
Yet, the great news is that the film is still slated to come to theaters this October, which will make it a must-see as one of the later films of 2022; and we cannot wait to see what the brilliant minds behind Miles story craft for the follow-up.
