Sony Working On A Series Pitch For A ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ TV Spinoff

Though we know sequel and spinoff films are already in development for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, it looks like Sony may be considering producing animated television shows based on some of its characters.

In a profile on Sony and its CEO Kenichiro Yoshida, New York Times says the consumer electronic powerhouse is aiming to shift further into the entertainment realm by leveraging many of its properties with sequels and spinoffs. Specifically, the critically acclaimed animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is mentioned as a candidate for TV show spinoffs based on characters introduced in the film.

Though these TV shows are only a rumor as of now, Spider-Verse sequel and spinoff films are in development as well. Specifically, an all-female spinoff film is reportedly in development, likely starring Spider-Gwen, who appeared as a major character in the first film.

As to what the premise of the show or shows would be is anyone’s guess, though it’s likely they would delve into even more alternate universes containing various different kinds of Spider-People. There are, after all, dozens of different permutations of Spider-Man that have been created since 1962.

Another specific possibility could involve a series of animated shorts starring Spider-Ham, as producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord mentioned in an interview with Comicbook.com that they’d love to see more of John Mulaney’s Peter Porker in this format.
