As Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse hit Philippine theaters last May 31, fans of the Miles Morales-starred film has already something big to look forward to in the future: the film's own live-action spin-off.
During the premiere of Across the Spider-Verse in Los Angeles on May 30, the film's producer Amy Pascal revealed to Variety that they are working on a live-action adaptation of the movie series. Not only that, Spider-Woman is swinging into the Spidey franchise with her very own film "sooner than you expect."
"You'll see all of it. It's all happening," Pascal told the outlet. “I cannot tell you yet, but it’s coming."
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse takes place after the events of the first film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and sees Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) reuniting with Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Woman, and traversing the Multiverse. There, he meets the Spider Society, a group of Spider-People tasked to protect the Multiverse. He later finds himself pitted against them as he tries to save the lives of those he loves most.
However, Spider-Verse's live-action adaptation and the upcoming Spider-Woman movie aren't the only ones Pascal teased during the recent event in L.A. According to the former Sony Pictures co-chairperson, the fourth installment of Tom Holland's Spider-Man films is still in the works although production was paused because of the ongoing Hollywood Writers Strike.
To recall, the dispute involves the 11,500 writers of the Writers Guild of America union who are fighting against the "systematic problems" they have encountered with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.
Talking about the upcoming Tom Holland-led Spider-man film, Pascal said, “Are we going to make another movie? Of course, we are. 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.”
