Marvel’s Superior Spider-Man is coming back later this year.

The official Spider-Man Twitter account posted a teaser saying, "The Superior Spider-Man will return."

The author of The Superior Spider-Man, Dan Slott, will pen a fresh tale for the title character in the autumn of 2023, according to the tweet.

"This fall, [Dan Slott] will return to the smarter, stronger, and superior wall-crawler in [Superior Spider-Man]," the account tweeted, adding, "More info swinging in soon."

About Superior Spiderman

Between January 2013 and September 2014, Slott wrote almost 30 issues of Marvel's first Superior Spider-Man series. The villain, Doctor Octopus/Otto Octavius, who had switched minds with Spider-Man Peter Parker before the latter's physical body passed away, appeared in the movie.

Otto, who was now moving about in Peter's superhuman body, made the decision to develop into a "superior" version of the valiant web-slinger.

Christos Gauge and Mike Hawkthorne previously released a Superior Spider-Man solo book for Marvel, which was a spinoff of the Spider-Geddon event and ran for 12 issues between December 2018 and October 2019.

During Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse's opening weekend in theatres, it was revealed that Superior Spider-Man would return. Marvel released miniseries and ongoing series in the months before the film that focused on characters from Across the Spider-Verse, including Miles Morales' Spider-Man, Miguel O'Hara's Spider-Man 2099, Gwen Stacy's Spider-Gwen, and Hobie Brown's Spider-Punk.

Prior to the sequel Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, which hits theatres on March 29, 2024, Marvel will release their next Superior Spider-Man book. Although the co-writers and producers of Across the Spider-Verse, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, have claimed that some Spider-People were kept for Beyond the Spider-Verse, it hasn't been made known as of this writing whether Superior Spider-Man is one of them.
