Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 has begun production again amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Earlier this week, lead animator Nick Kondo had announced the beginning of production posting on Twitter a ten-second video animation with the movie’s logo along with the caption “First day on the job!” The movie’s logo had “2022” emblazoned in the middle.

Sony, in April, had officially delayed the release of its two biggest Spider-Man movies — the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and the third instalment in the Spider-Man: Homecoming trilogy, the Verge had reported.

The Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s sequel was slated to be released on April 8, 2022, will now be released on October 7, 2022.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 has been in development even before the first instalment was released. Dave Callaham of The Expendables fame is the writer of the movie, while Joaquim Dos Santos (Avatar: The Last Airbender) is the director.

The cast includes Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld as the voice of Miles Morales/Spider-Man and Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen, respectively. According to a report by Gadgets260, producer Phil Lord had earlier hinted that Japanese Spider-Man from the 1978 Spider-Man series might also be involved with the film.

The studio is aiming to release a spin-off with Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen after the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 film.

The first instalment of the series had made $375.5 million worldwide and had won the Oscar for the best-animated film.
