Characters from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse could head to TV
Sony Pictures is riding high of their animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The film’s made over $250 million at the box office less than a month after it’s theatrical release, and just scored the studio’s first win for Best Animated Feature at the Golden Globes over the weekend. Now, some of its characters could be swinging their way onto the small screen.
According to The New York Times (via Comic Book Movie), Sony is “considering making animated television shows based on characters introduced in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which has collected $276 million at the box office.” Unfortunately, there are no details just yet, but this could mean we’ll see Peni Parker or Spider-Man: Noir in their own stand-alone solo adventures.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street, have brought their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.
Shameik Moore, star of The Get Down and Dope, voices Miles Morales in the film. He is joined by Liev Schreiber as Kingpin, Mahershala Ali as Miles’ Uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles’ father Jefferson, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, Lily Tomlin as Aunt May, with Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, Jake Johnson as Peter Parker along with Kimiko Glenn (Orange Is the New Black) as SP//dr aka Peni Parker; comedian John Mulaney as Spider-Ham; and Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman. The script was written by Phil Lord, who produced the film along with Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, Christopher Miller, and Christina Steinberg.
