It’s official: Work has begun on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2.

While we’ve known the sequel is scheduled for release in 2022, the coronavirus pandemic has put everything into question. However, it appears that Sony feels comfortable with work beginning.

Nick Konda, a lead animator at Sony Imageworks, posted that he has begun work on the project.

One would imagine that work is being done remotely, but at least we know it’s moving ahead!

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 is currently set to hit theaters on Oct. 7, 2022.
