A sequel to Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is ‘definitely’ in the works, producer Amy Pascal has confirmed.
After the Oscar winning/BAFTA winning/Golden Globe winning/all-round winning success of the first film, a sequel was never really in question.
Particularly because the film was held in such a high regard by Spidey fans, with some even referring to it as the best adaptation of Spider-Man yet.
Take a look at the trailer below:
The news of a sequel is likely receive a warm welcome from fans; since Into The Spider-Verse was released last year, it’s received a 93 per cent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, with many demanding a follow-up.
We won’t have to wait as long for a sequel as we might have initially thought, as Pascal revealed in an interview with io9 that one is already on the cards.
We are definitely hard at work on the sequel. You can expect another movie.
This isn’t the first time a sequel has been alluded to; in November, before Into The Spider-Verse was even released worldwide, news broke that Joaquim Dos Santos (Avatar: The Last Airbender) would be directing a Spider-Verse sequel with David Callaham (The Expendables) writing the script.
Just months later, it was confirmed the film’s producers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, had signed on to make Spider-Verse TV shows; Pascal added these shows are also progressing.
We are doing some television and all these things have to make sense together. I think we have some fantastic shows that we’re doing and we’re just putting them together now.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse follows Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales as he becomes the Spider-Man of his reality.
Crossing paths with counterparts from other dimensions, the ‘Spider-People’ team up to stop Wilson Fisk – also known as the Kingpin – as he presents a threat to all realities.
As per Digital Spy, the sequel will focus on one particular aspect of the first film – the growing romance between Miles and the alternate-reality, superhero version of Gwen Stacy.
Although the movie’s primary focus will be on their growing romance, it’s expected to feature the other Spider-Men too – considering it’s most likely another multi-verse story.
No cast announcements have been made yet, but we expect Shameik Moore and Hailee Steinfeld will reprise their roles as Miles and Gwen at the very least.
