Sony Pictures is currently developing two sequels to Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, a direct sequel and also a female spin-off featuring Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew), and Silk (Cindy Moon). The sequel already has Voltron’s Joaquim Dos Santos set to direct the follow-up with a script from Dave Callaham (Wonder Woman 84, The Expendables, Shang-Chi) and it sounds like the producers are open to including a bunch of different Spider-People.
While speaking with CinemaBlend, Philip Lord and Chris Miller have revealed they’d like to see Silk, Spider-Punk, Japanese Spider-Man, and even Italian Spider-Man. It looks like they’re doubling-down on Japanese Spider-Man from the live-action series from 1978.
A fan has asked producer Philip Lord to include Japanese Spider-Man, from the live-action series from the 1970s in the sequel. Lord agreed if Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse reaches $200 million domestically. That might be an uphill battle as the film currently sits at $104 million domestically and $213.7 million globally.

I mean it’s totally worth it for this theme song alone, no? The character also has a bunch of gadgets, a motorcycle, and a giant Power Rangers robot.
Bitten by a radioactive spider in the subway, Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales suddenly develops mysterious powers that transform him into the one and only Spider-Man. When he meets Peter Parker, he soon realizes that there are many others who share his special, high-flying talents. Miles must now use his newfound skills to battle the evil Kingpin, a hulking madman who can open portals to other universes and pull different versions of Spider-Man into our world.
