Sequel and spinoff to Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse in the works
The animated franchise introduces high-schooler Miles Morales as the superhero in a universe with more than one Spider-Man
While the animated feature film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is yet to hit the theatres, reports suggest that a sequel and an all-female spinoff have been planned already.
The animated franchise introduces high-schooler Miles Morales as the superhero in a universe with more than one Spider-Man. The sequel, also featuring Morales, is expected to be directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, who earlier helmed the animated version of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Meanwhile, the all-female spinoff will feature female superheroes from the Spider-Man universe, focusing on Spider-Gwen, who is from a universe where instead of Peter Parker, it his girlfriend Gwen Stacy who gets bit by a radioactive spider.
Sony's Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse, directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman, with characters voiced by Mahershala Ali, Liev Schreiber, and Lily Tomlin is set for release in the UK on December 12, and in the US on December 14.
