Sony’s Spider-Verse films have generated a large fandom around them, and the ultimate movie in the tale of Miles Morales titled, “Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse,” became just as successful as the first Spider-Verse Short film. Now, after the big cliffhanger in Across the Spider-Verse Short Film, people eagerly look forward to Miles Morales’ tale’s third and final installment. However, before releasing “Spider-Man: Beyond The Spider-Verse,” Sony introduced an unexpected Spider-Verse short movie. This movie isn’t your standard Spidey flick but rather a look into the mental repercussions of being Spider-Man. So, go through this article to discover everything you need to understand!

The short film debuted in the Annecy International Film Festival and Market in 2023. This new Spider-Verse Short film is titled The Spider Within: A Spider-Verse Story with a release date of March 27, 2024 (6 PM PT), and might be available to stream for free on Sony Animation’s official YouTube channel.

According to a report by Variety, The Spider Within isn’t going to be about an adventure or the Spider-Verse Short Film. Still, it will focus solely on the mental repercussions of being Spider-Man. This film is made in the style of a horror movie wherein we see him struggle with his responsibilities on his shoulders both in his everyday life and his fight against evil as Spider-Man.

Focus on Mental Repercussions

We will see him in severe tension, causing him to undergo sleep paralysis. As his sleep paralysis demon, he faces a physical embodiment of his anxiety forced to confront them. By watching the short film, he realizes that reaching out for help does not weaken him. This film will not have any connections with the upcoming Spider-Verse Short Film and maybe a stand-alone project.


In conclusion, “The Spider Within” delves deep into the psychological struggles of Spider-Man, showcasing a different facet of the superhero’s journey. It emphasizes the importance of addressing mental health issues and seeking support, even for iconic figures like Spider-Man.
