The Spider Verse may be even bigger than we thought. Sony

The studio is working on a sequel and a spin-off to its upcoming animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,per The Hollywood Reporter. Sony has reportedly tapped Voltron: Legendary Defender showrunners Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery to handle the projects individually. The script will be written by David Callaham, who wrote The Expendables and worked on Wonder Woman 1984 and Zombieland 2. Amy Pascal will produce and Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be involved in a creative capacity, though the site notes no deals have been officially made.

Other potential female Spider-verse characters could include Spider-Woman, Madame Web, Spider-Girl, and Silk. Producers Avi Arad and Christina Steinberg are also anticipated to return in as-yet unnamed roles.

With just a couple of weeks left until Spider-Verse is loosed upon the wider world, with its story of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), a Spidey living and hero-ing in an alternate universe meeting some of his fellow web-slinging types and teaming up to save all their realities from a nefarious, cross-dimensional scheme. I've heard it's flat out awesome and can't wait to see it. Sony must know they've got a good thing on their hands as well, because this is a pretty big commitment to a movie that hasn't even been released yet. Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, the brains behind the Lego movies, orchestrated Into The Spider-Verse, and will continue to help expand the animated superhero universe.

Swinging into theaters on December 14, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is produced by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation in association with Marvel.
