Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Getting Sequel And Spin-Off - Report

It CAN get weirder!


Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is still weeks away, but Sony already has plans to expand its world. The studio is apparently planning for both a sequel and a female-centered spin-off, with some notable talent attached.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Avatar: The Last Airbender and Voltron's Joaquim Dos Santos has been brought on to direct the sequel, with David Callaham (The Expendables, Wonder Woman 1984) writing. Meanwhile, Lauren Montgomery (Voltron, Batman: Year One) is set to direct another Spider-verse movie starring the female heroes, with Bek Smith (Zoo) writing.

Now Playing: Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse - Extended Sneak Peek Trailer

The story of the sequel has not been detailed, but it's expected to follow the upcoming film that uses Miles Morales as its central character. The spin-off is similarly mysterious, but it's reportedly going to focus on Spider-Gwen, aka Ghost Spider. She's one of two female Spiders in the upcoming film--alongside Penny Parker, the manga-inspired pilot of a SP//dr mech suit.

Other potential female Spider-verse characters could include Spider-Woman, Madame Web, Spider-Girl, and Silk. It's unclear which of these, if any, are under consideration.

Into The Spider-Verse brings together interpretations of the character from across the spectrum: Peter Parker as an elder and experienced Spider-Man who takes Miles Morales' newly initiated Spidey under his wing, along with Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man Noir, Penny Parker, and even Spider-Ham.

The trailers have implied a much wider universe of Spider-people, though, even including an Easter egg from the PS4 game. Similarly, an ongoing Spidergeddon comic event has included all manner of alternative Spider-man interpretations, from Uncle Ben as Spider-Man to Spiders-Man--a swarm of sentient spiders wearing a suit. Wherever Sony takes the sequel, it has plenty of material to work from.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is coming on December 14.
