Sony may be planning on a Spider-man: Into The Spider-Verse TV series

January 9th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Ok, so, we loved Spider-man: Into The Spider-verse. Like, seriously, loved it.

And we want more of it. and we know we’re getting a spin-off and sequel already – plus Sony have big plans for their Venom universe – but we want more!

And look, I don’t want to be THAT guy, but with the deal between Sony and Marvel for Spider-man needing to be revisited after Spider-Man: Homecoming, we expect all this to be linked in ways that we already foresaw here and here very soon.

Add to this the Golden Globe win a few nights ago for Best Animated Picture and you know Sony aim on capitalising as soon as possible.

Enter Sony Corporation’s chief executive Kenichiro Yoshida who took the job last April.

He has plans for Sony and your friendly neighbourhood Spider-man.

“I want to convey the message that Sony is a creative entertainment company,” Mr. Yoshida says.

Seems reasonable. What is also reasonable is the fact that he also hints that Sony is considering making animated television shows based on characters introduced in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

We would take that in a heart-beat…

Add to all this, the fact that Spider-man was also in Avengers: Infinity War and the PS4 Spider-Man game was massive and we reckon 2018 will be looked back on as the year that Spider-Man went to a whole new level.

But… Spider-verse animated shows? Yes, please!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
