With “Spider-Man: No Way Home” serving as something of an effective end to not just Tom Holland’s trilogy but the various Peter Parker movies to date, you would think the next one would at least introduce some new blood to slip on the spandex spider-suit.
That won’t be the case says franchise producer and former Sony studio boss Amy Pascal whilst attending today’s Oscars luncheon. Speaking with Variety, she confirmed they will do a live-action version of Miles Morales/Spider-Man.
The answer to the key question of when however may not please some. Pascal, asked when we might see a live-action Miles, says: “Someday. Not until we make two more movies. Someday. Someday. We’re very happy doing [the animated Spider-Verse movies].”
Phil Lord, who co-writes and produces the “Spider-Verse” films, adds: “She’s right. She’s the boss.” She adds that as for all the other spin-off talk: “You’ll see all of it, it’s all happening.”
Last summer, Pascal said she was open to the idea of crossing over the MCU and the Spider-Verse. For now though, she wants to keep the franchise with Tom [Holland] going.
There’s still no word on when a fourth Holland-led “Spider-Man” might go into production, whilst “Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse” has yet to lock in a new release date after ditching its March 29th 2024 one.
