Even before Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse premieres on December 14 this year, Sony Pictures has already announced that there will not only be a sequel, but an actual spin-off following the highly-anticipated animated movie. The film will introduce audiences to multiple Spider-Man universes.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the creative team-consisting of people like Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, who have both worked for the critically acclaimed Netflix series Voltron- are rumored to be part of working on an all-female spin-off with a possible focus on Spider-Gwen. There have also been rumors about including other fan-favorites like Spider-Girl, Madame Web and Silk.
Following the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) as well as the Spider-Verse film Venom (2018), Sony are making sure their web of planned sequels and stories is well-spun and ready to trap fans who have been excited about the new adventures in the Spider-Verse since the extended preview in form of a post-credit scene after Venom (2018).
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was already highly anticipated before but, the idea of an all-female sequel, which will offer new fans and array of superheroes and will present the audience a new form of diversity comic-based action movies have been severely lacking – with a few exceptions.
We can’t wait to find out which journey Spider-Man will take us on next!
