Sony Developing Into the Spider-Verse Sequel and Female-Led Spinoff


The Hollywood Reporter has news that, in the wake of much buzz about the incoming Into the Spider-Verse, Sony Pictures Animation has tapped the showrunners behind Dreamworks' Voltron: Legendary Defender, Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, to expand the animated corner of the Spider-hero world. David Callaham (The Expendables, Wonder Woman 1984) is writing the film. Plus, the studio is also working on an all-female spinoff, which will most likely star characters like Spider-Gwen (who's in the inaugural film) and potentially, Mary Jane Watson, Spider-Woman, Madame Web, Spider-Girl and Silk. Bek Smith, a writer on US TV series Zoo, is on script duty for that one.

Additionally, Spider-Verse creators Phil Lord and Chris Miller, as well as Avi Arad, are expected to be involved creatively in some capacity.

Peter Parker trains Miles Morales and meets Spider-Gwen in this exclusive extended clip from #SpiderMan: #IntoTheSpiderVerse.

There are 1,500 employees at the General Motors Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant and another 335 at the Warren Transmission plant. The company has said tariffs on imported steel, imposed earlier this year by the Trump administration, have cost it $1 billion.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that's the first of its kind.

Swinging into theaters on December 14, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is produced by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation in association with Marvel. So it's a good thing he's got Peter Parker (Jake Johnson) by his side to teach him the ropes (or is the webs?) of being your friendly neighborhood webslinger - as they're being pursued by evil, laser-wielding scientists.
