Sony Pictures has big plans for their Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated film franchise! The first movie has yet to be released, but the studio is obviously feeling confident in the future of the franchise.
According to THR, they are already developing a sequel to the film along with a spinoff that will focus on a team of female characters!
The studio has hired Joaquim Dos Santos to direct the sequel. He is best known for his work on animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender and Netflix’s Voltron series. Then there’s Lauren Montgomery, who has also worked on Avatar: The Last Airbender and Netflix’s Voltron. She is currently in talks to direct the all-female spinoff movie that it said to “gather the female heroes in the Spider-Man universe of characters in one adventure.” Bek Smith, who wrote episodes of the CBS show Zoo, will write the script.
Amy Pascal, who produced Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse as well as the live-action movies, will return to work on these new animated projects. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are also expected to be creatively involved with the development of the projects. They were the brains behind Into The Spider-Verse. Avi Arad is also expected to return to produce.
Not much is known about the sequel, but we do know that it will continue the adventures of Miles Morales.
As for the all-female spinoff, there aren’t any plot details, but the story will most likely center on characters such as Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, Madame Web, Spider-Girl and Silk.
