“Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” Producers Tease Live-Action Miles Morales & Animated “Spider-Woman” Movies

How confident are the folks behind Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse that they’ve got another hit on their hands? How about confident enough that producer Amy Pascal told Variety the third film in the trilogy, next year’s Beyond the Spider-Verse, is but one of the Spider-Verse projects they’ve got cooking.

Pascal revealed they’re also working on an animated, standalone Spider-Woman film and a live-action Miles Morales movie. Morales, of course, is the main character in the animated Spider-Verse films. Voiced by Shameik Moore, he’s the Brooklyn teenager who becomes the borough’s one and only Spider-Man (remember, Peter Parker is from Queens) and ends up finding out that he’s hardly the only Spider-Man, or even Spider-Person, in the multiverse. His first adventure, Into the Spider-Verse, was a mind-melting, Oscar-winning game-changer. Across the Spider-Verse, which premieres on June 2, might be even better.

“You’ll see all of it,” Pascal told Variety in regard to the animated Spider-Woman and live-action Miles Morales movies. “It’s all happening.” Producer Avi Arad added that the Spider-Woman movie would appear “sooner than you expect.”

Hailee Steinfeld, who plays Gwen Stacy in the Spider-Verse films, said she’d be extremely game for a standalone Spider-Woman film. “This is my dream job; sign me up over and over again,” she said about voicing the character. “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.”

When asked about the fourth film in the Tom Holland-led live-action Spider-Man franchise, Pascal said it was still in the works but was on pause due to the writer’s strike.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is directed by Kemp Powers, Justin K. Thompson, and Joaquim Dos Santos. Joining Moore and Steinfeld in the cast as Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen, respectively, are Oscar Isaac as Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099, Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman, Daniel Kaluuya as Hobart ‘Hobie’ Brown/Spider-Punk, Jason Schwartzman as Spot, Jorma Taccone as Adrian Toomes/The Vulture, Karan Soni as Pavitr Prabhakar/Spider-Man India, Andy Samberg as Ben Reilly/Scarlet Spider, and Amanda Stenberg as Margo Kess/Spider-Byte.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on June 2.
