While Marc Webb and Sony Pictures are working on the next three Amazing Spider-Man films, it seems like the studio is looking to get some spin-off films into production as well! The news (via: Deadline and The Wrap) comes from Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chairman Amy Pascal, who says,
“We are going to access Marvel’s full world of Spider-Man characters, so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains."
I'm actually surprised that they didn't do this sooner, especially with Marvel having so much success with their cinematic universe. I guess it's better late than never, though. Sony Pictures Entertainment chief Michael Lynton also added,
“We do very much have the ambition about creating a bigger universe around Spider-Man. There are a number of scripts in the works”
There's no mention of what characters or villains will be featured, but I'd personally like to see Venom, Carnage, Morbius, and Black Cat on the list of characters to get their own films. There's been talk of a Venom spin-off for a while, and Morbius was rumored to be a villain at one point as well.
Which Spider-Man characters would you like to see get their own movies? And will Stan Lee make a cameo in all of them?

I'm not sure how many of these characters Sony owns, but it should give you a good idea of what they might be working with.
