Sony Planning Spider-Verse Sequel and Spin-Off
It is a good thing that Marvel and Sony seem to be civil when it comes to the rights of the Spider-Man property (as opposed to the more antagonistic relationship that built up between Fox and Marvel, before the buyout happened.), because Sony is making bank with the wall-crawler. Aside from the Tom Holland Spider-Man that has had healthy crossovers with the MCU’s Avengers, they also have an animated movie slated for December 14, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
And it looks like Sony is confident enough that they already have a sequel and a spin-off lined up. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the sequel will have Joaquim Dos Santos (Justice League Unlimited, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, DreamWorks’ Voltron) as director, with a script penned by David Callaham (The Expendables films, Godzilla, upcoming Wonder Woman 1984).
The untitled Spin-Off, on the other hand, is still being shopped out, with Lauren Montgomery in talks to direct. The project will reportedly have all the female heroes of the Spider-Man storyverse together, and will have a script written by Bek Smith.
Spider-Verse producer Amy Pascal will be working on both projects. Phil Lord and Chris Miller will also likely be involved, though they have not yet been signed on.
