In a recent piece from TheNewYorkTimes outlining the future of the Sony Corporation has revealed a small tidbit of information concerning possible television shows being spun off the recent animated film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, which recently won Best Animated Picture at the Golden Globes.
Sony is also considering making animated television shows based on characters introduced in “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” which has collected $276 million at the box office.
It’s only a brief line, but we’ve heard from producers of the film previously that they’re keen on pursuing television projects (John Mulaney’s Spider-Ham being highlighted recently for TV) as well as spin-off features. I do feel like Penni, Spider-Ham, and Spider-Man Noir are the best candidates for their own series. Although it might be tough to get Nic Cage to sign-on for a voice acting gig, I’d watch every single episode if they managed to do it.
The slow and steady success of the film seems like it’s opening a lot of new possibilities for Sony to properly mine their Spider-Man property the way it really should be. Recently, it was announced that we’d be getting Spider-Verse 2 and an all-female spin-off movie featuring Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew), and Silk (Cindy Moon).
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.
