Sony Scheming Several Spider-Man Spinoffs In Attempt To Appease Angry Audiences

ENTERTAINMENT | September 24th, 2019 8:59 AM

In an attempt to quell the backlash from fans over Spider-Man’s probable split from the MCU, Sony has announced their plans for Spidey’s cinematic future, which includes several feature films and three new series over the next several years. The lineup begins with anticipated sequels to Venom, Spider-Man: Far from Home, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but what fans are buzzing about are the movies and shows which deviate from the main storylines. We don’t yet have dates for any of these, but we can expect them to be sprinkled throughout the coming years in an attempt to compete with the Disney-Marvel juggernaut.

First, we have a handful of feature films: Spider-Man: The Golden Years, which will feature an aging wall-crawler in a struggle with incontinence, remembering what day it is, and running out of retirement money; Peter Parker’s Day Off, which is rumored to have a cameo by Matthew Broderick; When Tobey Met Andy, a film in the style of Brokeback Mountain and starring Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield that will incorporate elements of the Spider-Verse’s multiverse and borrow from Deadpool’s breaking of the fourth wall; and finally, Gwen in Rome, which may be Gwen Stacy’s breakout in this third Spider-Man movie series.

After these, it seems Sony will take a short hiatus from movies to bring us three new shows, two of which are animated series: SpiderBob WebPants, a SpongeBob SquarePants crossover; The Amazing Spider-Ham and Spectacular Spider-Pig, a partnership with The Simpsons; and the highly anticipated cooking show Doc Ock’s Crock Pot.

Finally, Sony rounded out the announcement with a few comedies. We have little information about two of the titles, The Misadventures of Flash Thompson and Venom Makes an Oopsie, but the third, MJ in the NBA, will be a body-swapping movie starring Zendaya and Kyrie Irving.
