How much is ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ expected to make?
The ‘Spider-Verse’ sequel is expected to rake in big numbers at the box office.
‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ was released in 2018 and introduced Miles Morales to the big screen. The film gained widespread recognition for its innovative animation style and for breathing new life into Spider-Man, even taking home the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film.
