Spider-Verse 3’s Release Date: A Historic Moment for Marvel with a Short Gap Between Sequels

The Short Wait for Spider-Verse 3: Why it Makes History under Marvel

The gap between Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse will make history under the Marvel banner.

Given that Spider-Verse 2 has already premiered in theaters, the attention now shifts to Spider-Verse 3, especially after the sequel’s cliffhanger ending.

It is widely expected that the threequel will explore the ramifications of Spider-Verse 2’s ending. In fact, Across the Spider-Verse producer Peter Ramsey even teased that “the sky really is the limit” when it comes to what the third entry will bring to the table.

Why Spider-Verse 3 Release Date Is Special

Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse’s release date is set for March 29, 2024, which is 301 days after Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s theatrical premiere on June 2, 2023.

If Spider-Verse 3’s current date sticks, then this gap will make history as the shortest window between release dates for a Marvel movie and its direct sequel.

Interestingly, it was a much longer wait between Spider-Verse 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which premiered on December 14, 2018. This resulted in a gap of 1631 days between the first two movies.

In the MCU, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame holds this release date record since both movies were released 364 days apart in 2018 and 2019.

The Wait for Spider-Verse 3 Should Build Enough Hype

When Avengers: Infinity War ended with half of the titular team (and the universe) turning into dust, the anticipation for its follow-up (Avengers: Endgame) was through the roof.

The same kind of anticipation could also be building for Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, especially after how Spider-Verse 2 managed to showcase a massive yet perfect cliffhanger.

The short gap between the two movies benefits Spider-Verse 3 since it will not take long for fans to know the answer to how the franchise will wrap up its trilogy.

The decision to not include a post-credits scene in Across the Spider-Verse is also quite fitting since it allows more questions to arise that would build more hype for the threequel.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is now playing in theaters worldwide.
