Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse won’t be out until mid-2023, however, details from the film emerge almost weekly. The film was originally set to release in April 2022, this year, but was delayed due to covid restrictions.
Sony plan on it being released in a completely non-restrictive and stress-free time for fans to watch in theaters. The film itself though is completely finished and ready to be released, hence why details keep leaking to the public. Sony doesn’t seem to mind though as the details usually come from official merch or exclusive events, held by Sony themselves.

Who Is Marvel Comics’ John Romita Sr?
John Romita Sr. is an iconic comic book artist, best known for his works on Marvel’s Amazing Spider-Man. His take on the Spidey suit became one of the most famously known renditions of Spider-Man, which is still used to this very day.
He worked on many characters with Marvel back in the day but ultimately left the company in the late 1980s. It was rumored that his decision to leave was due to creative differences with the team, Stan Lee, plus Steve Ditko.
