Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Spinoffs Are Being Planned for TV

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has become a phenomenon since hitting theaters at the end of last year, prompting Sony to start working on a sequel and an all-female spinoff. Fans of the movie might also see the universe swing into the small screen, too.

According to the New York Times, Sony is reportedly planning to introduce animated television shows featuring characters from Into the Spider-Verse. While the report doesn’t reveal which characters could get the spinoff treatment, John Mulaney, who played Spider-Ham, has already expressed interest in revisiting the character.

Really, any character we saw in Into the Spider-Verse could make an easy transition to the small screen. And Sony has an entire Spider-Verse of characters to choose from, which means we could get a better glimpse at Oscar Isaac’s Spider-Man 2099, or maybe even Chris Pine’s version of Peter Parker.

Of course, the possibility of television spinoffs also gives Sony room to introduce more villains. If Sony plays it right, then any show it makes can connect with the movies. The creators have a lot of potential options, which is likely why they’re considering TV as a platform to explore.

Recently, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse won Best Animated film at the Golden Globes, while Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson expressed his admiration for the film, saying the film’s influence is “going to run deep.”
