Chris Miller Teases Live-Action Spider-Man Universe TV Series
Back in April, Sony lined up Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord to develop television shows based on characters in “Sony’s Marvel Universe.” Essentially, those are the Spider-Man associated characters under Sony’s control, including Black Cat (pictured above), Silver Sable, and more. Sony has yet to lock down which Spider-Man supporting characters will get their own shows. Regardless, Miller did offer a brief update at the Television Critics Association Press Tour.
“We are developing a handful of live-action shows using Sony’s Marvel characters, of which there are like 900 characters,” said Miller while speaking with Deadline. “We’re figuring out a way to develop the shows so that each are their own unique experience but are also related.”
It’s true that Sony has approximately 900 Marvel characters under its control. However, most of them can’t headline their own comics, much less a TV series or a movie. So there are really only a handful who could realistically be under consideration for these TV shows.
Miller didn’t share any details about which characters he and Miller have in mind. But he did indicate that potential collaborators are already being recruited for the shows.
“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,” added 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…Hopefully we’ll know in the next few months where it’ll be and what the schedule will be.”
Sony also has ambitions to make its own version of the MCU, including Venom and Morbius the Living Vampire. Black Cat and Silver Sable were both slated for the Silver and Black movie. However, that project stalled out. It remains to be seen if the two heroines will get another chance on the big screen, or if they’re under consideration for Miller and Lord’s TV shows.
