At the Critics' Choice Awards, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman seemingly teased that the forthcoming sequel would take place after a two-year time jump. However, Rothman has debunked this by clarifying that it was a joke.
In response to an article about the time jump, Rothman wrote, "Note to self, going forward: don't make jokes on the red carpet," indicating that he and his co-directors weren't serious about a possible time jump.

Though the true details of the Into the Spider-Verse sequel are currently unknown, the film will give way to a female-led spinoff and may launch TV projects focused on the various versions of Spider-Man. While it may take the sequel some time to find a story, it's safe to say that Into the Spider-Verse still has ways to keep its audience entertained for the time being.
