Phil Lord and Chris Miller are still basking in the success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but that doesn’t mean no work is being done.
Lord and Miller made an appearance at the Critics Association summer event in support of Bless the Harts, and talked briefly about the Marvel projects they are working on. “We are developing a handful of live-action shows using Sony’s Marvel characters, of which there are like 900 characters,” they said. “We’re figuring out a way to develop the shows so that each are their own unique experience but are also related.”
“We’ve been talking to a lot of potential teammates for trying to do something not like anything else that’s been done on television,” said Miller. “It’ll be a little while before it all comes together and is on the air, but I think it is going to be something really special,” he said with a literal wink according to Deadline.
What isn’t known, as of yet, is where the projects will be shown. Miller simply said, “Hopefully we’ll know in the next few months where it’ll be and what the schedule will be.”
As Sony only holds the rights to Marvel characters related to Spider-Man, it’s anyone’s guess what the dup may be pulling from. Yes, there may be 900 characters in total, but how many of them can support a TV series without Spider-Man himself appearing?
We’ll just have to wait and see what they end up launching.
