🕷️ ‘Beyond the Spider-Verse’ Says BRB: What’s REALLY Happening in Sony’s Cinematic Shuffle? 🎥
TL;DR; 🚨 ‘Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse’ hits the pause button amid Sony’s movie mayhem, courtesy of the writers’ and actors’ strikes. 🚨
Hold up, Spidey fans! 🕸️ Just when we were getting psyched for the next web-slinging adventure, Sony decided to play Jenga with its film line-up. Remember that calendar you were checking off days for the Spider-Man sequel’s release? Crumple it up! 💔
First things first: “Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse”. It was all set to swoop into theaters on March 29, 2024, especially after “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” pocketed a cool $1.05 billion globally. 🌍 Cha-ching! 💰 But thanks to those pesky strikes (anyone else having COVID cinema shuffle flashbacks?), the Spidey sequel may not swing back into action for… wait for it… multiple years! 💥 Seriously, Sony?
But here’s a plot twist: Sony’s being all cryptic about when we’ll actually get to watch it. Their oh-so-informative statement? “The studio is considering several dates depending on how long the strike lasts.” 🙄 Way to keep us hanging, right?
🔀 In the meantime, “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” is sneaking into Spider-Verse’s original Easter weekend spot. And for all you car fanatics, Sony’s betting big on Neill Blomkamp’s “Gran Turismo”. Vroom vroom, anyone? 🏎️
But wait, there’s more! Sony’s Spidey saga continues with “Kraven the Hunter” moving its big debut to Aug. 30, 2024. Meanwhile, “Madame Web” is feeling the love with a Valentine’s Day 2024 release. ❤️ But heads up, “El Muerto” fans (and Bad Bunny lovers): it’s off the calendar for now. 🚫
Diving deeper into the shuffle 🎲: “Karate Kid” gets a six-month delay, while “Bad Boys” and “Venom” are penciling in June and July 2024 dates. And remember that global pandemic we’re still talking about? Seems like Sony and even bigwigs like Disney are still recovering from its after-effects. Last we checked, Disney’s pushing its Marvel goodies and the next “Avatar” sequels by a year.
So, dear reader, what’s the bigger question in all this madness? 🤔 Why the shuffle, and how long will it last? And for all you super fans out there, what’s the ONE movie you’d go on strike for? 😂
Final Question: With all this cinematic chaos, are movie calendars even trustworthy anymore? Or should we just chill and stream at home? 🍿🤷♂️
