The second installment in Sony's Spider-Verse series, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, has been released and we know that a third film is due next March, Beyond the Spider-Verse. But the filmmaker duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller — who are producers on the Spider-Verse films — have weighed in on Miles Morales' future.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Lord and Miller revealed that Beyond the Spider-Verse will serve as the finale for Miles Morales/Spider-Man's story.
“It is the end of the Miles Morales trilogy. So this whole thing is like working towards that,” said Miller.
He added, “That's it for us. We're so tired!” to a laugh shared with Lord.
Even if Miles Morales' story is done, the Spider-Man: Noir and Silk show are still in development, according to Miller. They're on-hold thanks to the WGA writers' strike.
Should Beyond the Spider-Verse come out on its scheduled release date of March 29, 2024, that will mean the whole Spider-Verse chapter of Lord and Miller's career has gone on for over six years. It's understandable why they would be ready to move forward with a new story — especially if Miles Morales is going to go into live-action territory.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse follows Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) on another adventure with Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) as he takes on the Spot (Jason Schwartzman) with a whole new group of Spider-People led by Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac). In less than a week open in theaters, the film has already grossed $236.6 million.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is in theaters now.
