Sony Pictures’ animated “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” has massively exceeded critical expectations and fared very well at the box-office. Whilst a sequel is a foregone conclusion at this point, The New York Times reports that the studio is looking to expand the property in other ways.
The paper indicates that Sony is considering “making animated television shows based on characters introduced in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse'”. The prospect would make more sense than greenlighting numerous film spin-offs, though a multi-generational “Spider-Woman” film has been rumored. Could this mean the likes of Spider-Man Noir, and Peni Parker might get their own shows for a streaming platform?
‘Spider-Verse’ has collected $276 million at the box office to date from a budget of $90 million. Joaquim Dos Santos and David Callaham are set to direct and write the film sequel which will continue Miles’ story, while producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have also expressed a desire to see some shorts starring Spider-Ham.
