Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is one of the biggest movies of the year, grossing over $690 million, earning critical acclaim, and already garnering plenty of awards buzz, with some experts even anticipating an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.

Needless to say, Spider-Fans are stoked for the final film in the trilogy, especially after it was announced that it had been indefinitely delayed. Fortunately, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller actually had an update at a recent panel.

While it’s still 2023, fans of the first two films have still been worried about the progress of Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, especially since the original release date was only a year after Across the Spider-Verse. Fortunately, producer Chris Miller had a progress update for eager audiences at a recent “For Your Consideration” event.

“We’re in production… we’re really excited about where the story is going. I think it’s a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, and it’s as emotional as the other ones… we’re knee-deep in it.” Phil Lord then jokingly followed it, saying, “It will be released in theaters.”

Although there weren’t many details, this vague update is still reassuring. It feels better to hear than what Lord and Miller told Digital Spy in August: “[It will come] when it’s ready. Those conversations are thankfully above our pay grade, 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.”

Fortunately, people who love the Spider-Verse films seem like they’ll be more than willing to wait. If the team at Sony Pictures Animation takes their time and pulls this off, Beyond the Spider-Verse has the chance to be the greatest movie trilogy of all time.
