Spider-Man Across the Spider-verse Part 1 UK release date and age rating certificate latest

Spider-Man Across the Spider-verse Part 1 UK release date and age rating certificate

If No Way Home didn’t quite quench your appetite, Miles Morales will be taking up the mantle with the Spider-Man Across the Spider-verse Part 1 UK release date scheduled for later in 2022. It’ll be another mind-warping adventure, so here are the details on the film, including the story, cast and age rating to get things swinging into action.

If you missed Spider-Man Into the Spider-verse, then you might want to catch it before the sequel comes out, because the series is building up to be at least a trilogy. This time around, Miles is coaxed out of being grounded by the appearance of Gwen Stacey from another dimension, who is dressed and ready to go as Spider-Woman.

This leads to more multi-verse travels for the duo as they team up with a number of other Spider-Peeps to take down yet another turbo-powered villain. If you’ve seen the trailer then you may well have seen Miles battling a bulkier Spider-Man from another dimension, but we’re pretty sure this isn’t the main villain. It looks more like something similar to the fight with Doctor Strange in the Mirror Dimension in No Way Home, so it’s going to be interesting to see who the main bad guy is going to be.


The Spider-Man Across the Spider-verse Part 1 cast is led by Shameik Moore (Dope) as Miles Morales and Hailee Steinfeld (Hawkeye) as Gwen / Spider-Woman. Oscar Isaac (Moon Knight) continues his efforts to be in every single movie or TV show ever as Spider-Man 2099, who was introduced in the credits scene at the end of Into the Spider-verse. They’ll also be joined by Jake Johnson (Jurassic World) who continues his role as the older and less together Peter B. Parker.

There are bound to be a lot more characters revealed in the build up to the release date, so we’ll update you with more details as they’re confirmed.

Spider-Man Across the Spider-verse Part 1 UK release date

At the moment, Spider-Man Across the Spider-verse Part 1 has been given a UK release date of Friday the 7th October 2022, so it looks set to be one of the autumn’s big films this year. It’s due to come out on the same date in North America, so hopefully there won’t be any spoilers to avoid about how it all strings together and sets things up for Part 2.

There’s still a long way to go until the release, so as things stand there aren’t any other films due out on the same date, which puts it in a good place to land the number one spot in the UK. However, it will still have to compete with Mission Impossible 7, which comes out a week before it and then they’ll both have Halloween Ends to go up against the week after Across the Spider-verse.

Halloween Ends shouldn’t have too much of an impact on it, and the week gap after Mission Impossible 7 should give it enough breathing room to land well. The good news continues for the Sony Pictures film with the October release meaning that it should then come out on DVD, Blu-ray and digital just in time for Christmas 2022, which could put it on a lot of wish lists.

Age rating certificate

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) will officially announce the age rating for Spider-Man Across the Spider-verse Part 1 in the UK when there’s around a couple of weeks to go until the release date, but you can take a lot from the first film. It was given a PG certificate and looking at the teaser trailer for the sequel there’s nothing significant to indicate that it might get anything different.

In terms of parents guide notes, you can definitely expect some animated comic book superhero violence that will be similar in style and content to the first film. It’s a similar story for threat – although the first film featured at least one major death scene, so you might want to take that into account. There could be a little rude humor and there’s the possibility of injury detail, but this will obviously be presented in the cartoon style, if there is any.

The age rating in America is also yet to be officially announced. A UK PG certification should equate to the same in the US.

We’ll update you with more details on the film classification as they get confirmed. You can also check out our movie news section to keep tabs on the latest upcoming films, or visit the Sony Pictures website at https://www.sonypictures.com/.


As with the age rating, the Spider-Man Across the Spider-verse Part 1 runtime will be announced much closer to the release date. The first film was 1 hour and 57 minutes, so the sequel probably won’t be too far from that.
