Still several weeks out from release, Sony Pictures Animation is so confident in its upcoming “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” animated feature that work has already begun on both a sequel and spinoff.
Filmmaker Joaquim Dos Santos (“Avatar: The Last Airbender,” “Voltron”) will helm the sequel, while Lauren Montgomery (“Voltron,” “Batman: Year One”) is in negotiations to direct the all-female spin-off with Bek Smith (“Zoo”) attached to write the script for that one.
Amy Pascal will return to produce both upcoming features, Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be creatively involved in the projects, and Avi Arad will return in some capacity.
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask. The film opens in cinemas December 14th.
