The SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE Sequel May See a Two-Year Time Jump
We’ve got a bit of new information to share with you regarding the sequel to Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse that is currently in development at Sony.
We already knew that the story explores a romantic relationship between Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy. Now, thanks to the directors, Rodney Rothman, Peter Ramsey, and Bob Persichetti, we’ve learned that the next film will most likely be set two-years after the events of the first film.
When asked by Variety about the sequel at the Critics Choice Awards, Rothman said:
“Do you have time? I’ll tell you literally everything that’s going to happen in the sequel. We’re gonna start with Miles, we’re gonna cut to two years later, obviously.”
We don’t know if this is for sure or not because they are still early in the development process, but it would make sense to see a time jump. That allows Morales to get used to being Spider-Man and get some much needed experience saving people. Also, it’ll probably be another two years before we see the sequel hit theaters.
We really don’t know much about the story, but I’m really hoping that it adapts the comic book arc Spider-Man/Spider-Gwen Sitting in a Tree, which follows Miles as he is sent to Spider Gwen’s universe to save his dad. This is where the relationship between the two characters really blossoms. Here’s the description of that story:
Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy are two young heroes from different Earths, but what threat could unite the Spider-Man and Spider-Woman of the new generation? The answer will rock both their worlds! Not for the first time, Miles will find himself in another universe — and he's in pursuit of someone he holds dear. But will that description soon apply to Gwen? Or, as the stakes are raised, will this spider-crossed pair see teen romance give way to arachnid animosity? First comes love, then comes much worse, then comes chaos in the Multiverse!
