As fans are eagerly waiting for the release of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the animated sequel to the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the producers of the franchise have shared some exciting news about other projects in the pipeline.
Amy Pascal, who has produced several Spider-Man movies for Sony, has announced that there will be a third part of the animated series called Beyond the Spider-Verse, which is expected to come out next year. But that’s not all. She also revealed that they are working on a Spider-Woman movie and a live-action movie featuring Miles Morales, the Afro-Latino teenager who became Spider-Man in the first animated film.
“You’ll see all of it,” she told Variety on Tuesday at the premiere of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in Los Angeles. “It’s all happening.”
She added that she could not reveal any details about the live-action Miles Morales movie yet, but assured that it was coming.
“I cannot tell you yet, but it’s coming,” she said.
Pascal also confirmed that they are planning to make a fourth Spider-Man movie with Tom Holland and Zendaya, who play Peter Parker and MJ in the live-action series. However, she said that the writers strike has put the project on hold for now.
“Are we going to make another movie? Of course, we are,” she said. “We’re in the process, but the writers strike, nobody is working during the strike. We’re all being supporters and whenever they get themselves together, we’ll get started.”
Sony chief Tom Rothman was more secretive about the upcoming projects and joked that he would have to kill anyone who asked him about them.
“If I told you, I’d have to kill you,” he said.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse features the voices of Shameik Moore as Miles Morales and Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, who are joined by other Spider-People from different dimensions.
Steinfeld said that she loved doing voice work for the animated film and that it was her dream job.
“This is like my dream job, sign me up over and over again,” she said. “I got to be comfortable! And it’s a dream to be in a space that feels so comfortable but also creative and free and just exciting to be a part of.”
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will hit theaters on Friday, June 02, 2023.
