Sony Pictures really hit a homerun with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The animated film has been a critical and financial hit, and it earned a Golden Globe this week. This marks the beginning of a new franchise for Sony, which is already developing a sequel and spinoff. However, a new report suggests that it’ll go beyond that.
The New York Times has published a piece on Sony’s future franchise plans, and obviously, Spider-Man is a big part of that. In addition to the movie spinoffs, Sony is considering animated television shows starring characters from Into the Spider-Verse.
The film has spawned several fan-favorite characters, such as Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, and Peni Parker & SP//dr. Any one of them could get their own series. Spider-Gwen was also introduced, but she will be headlining the movie spinoff. And considering how vast the Spider-Verse is, Sony can mine it with films and shows for years to come.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
