Phil Lord and Chris Miller Discuss the Future of the SPIDER-VERSE and the Spinoff Series Is News to Them
After the success of of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the producers of the film have been talking about all kinds of things for the future of the franchise.
These things include a sequel that will focus on the relationship between Mile Morales and Gwen Stacy; an all-female spinoff that will feature Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, and Silk; and multiple spinoff series that could focus on other characters in the Spider-Verse.
Well, producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller haven’t even heard of the spinoff series idea! When it was brought up by /Film in an interview, Lord said, “That’s news to us.” Miller went on to say that everything that has been talked about so far is premature and that they are still in the process of figuring out the future of the franchise:
“We’re talking about potential stuff in the Spider-Verse but nothing is really full formed yet. We’re talking about stuff. It’s such a big universe. There’s so many possible ways to go. It’d be great to be able to do whatever the public would allow.”
Lord added, “We’re not even being coy. It’s literally not figured out.” So, who knows! We might not end up seeing anything that the other producers of the film have been talking about! That’s interesting. Maybe all of the producers should get on the same page.
Regardless, I’m excited for the future of the Spider-Verse franchise, and I can’t wait to see what the creative team ends up doing with it!
