So we’re hearing that Spider-man: Into The Spider-verse is a contender for superhero movie of the year and for best Spider-man movie ever made… so obviously we’re pretty excited to get our nerdy eyes on it.

But in the meantime, there’s a new clip from it at the bottom of the page that is a lot of fun… we’re confident this is going to live up to the hype.

And clearly, so are Sony.

A new report from THR says we’re getting a sequel and a spin-off.

The sequel will be directed by Avatar: The Last Airbender  and Voltron’s Joaquim Dos Santos while writing duties will be down to David Callaham who worked on Wonder Woman 1984 and Zombieland 2.

Along with this, Batman: Year One andSuperman/Batman: Apocalypse director Lauren Montgomery is getting ready to direct a movie based on the female side of the Spider-verse which will most likely involve Gwen Stacey/Spider-Gwen and will be penned by Bek Smith, who wrote episodes of Zoo.

Alarmingly, Amy Pascal and Avi Arad are still involved but hopefully so will Phil Lord and Chris Miller who acted as producers for the upcoming first movie.

So, much to the surprise of no-one, it seems that Sony, after the success of Venom, and the expected success of Spider-verse, are planning on going big on spider-man… Marvel better be able to renegotiate a deal for Peter Parker in the MCU.

Here’s the new clip too… enjoy, web-heads!

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring 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.

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….
