Spider-Verse Sequel To Follow Romance Between Miles Morales And Spider-Gwen, Plus Spin-Off Details

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse may have just hit theaters last night, but already Sony is banking on this one being a big hit. And it makes sense. The film is a critical darling, with some claiming it to be the best animated film of the year, and aesthetically, there really is nothing out there like that.

Ahead of its release in theaters, it was already reported that the film would have two follow-ups — one direct sequel that follows Miles Morales, and one spin-off that focused on a few generations of Spider-Women, with Gwen Stacy seeming to be the logical lead. But a more recent piece seems to hint that Gwen may actually have a pretty big role to play in Into the Spider-Verse‘s direct sequel as well.

In the piece, it is stated that the sequel will actually focus on a romance between her and Miles Morales. Apparently, this was a subplot in the first film that sadly didn’t fit into the story. So, does this mean a spin-off film with her is out of the question? Apparently not, as this sequel is set to serve as a launching pad for the spin-off. If the character really does take off with mainstream audiences, having her play a significant role in both kind of makes sense, but it does seem a bit odd (then again, that didn’t stop Warner Bros. from giving Batman his own LEGO Movie spin-off before bringing him back for the sequel).

Additionally, the outlet stated that the Into the Spider-Verse sequel already had a director and writer in the form of Avatar: The Last Airbender‘s Joaquim Dos Santos and Wonder Woman 1984‘s David Callaham, respectively.

The spin-off film also has a writer in the form of Ben Smith and will reportedly feature Spider-Gwen, Cindy Moon (Silk), and Jessica Drew (Spider-Women).

I haven’t seen Into the Spider-Verse yet, but I’m already thrilled with these reports of spin-offs and sequels. Count me in.
