It’s a great time to be Phil Lord and Chris Miller, after a quick interval through which it actually didn’t seem to be. The author/director/producer duo, who broke huge with the Bounce Road movies and greater with The LEGO Film, had been famously jettisoned from the manufacturing of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and failed to get Flash up and operating. However then final 12 months (in the identical 12 months that Solo made it to theaters, no much less), they helped blow Sony’s Spider-Man world broad open with Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse, which Lord co-wrote and each produced.
Now, the duo will assist to develop Sony’s Spidery-tethered crop of Marvel properties much more broadly, because it’s been reported that Lord and Miller have signed a profitable deal TV take care of the studio. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the pair have inked a nine-figure all inclusive deal that can see them create and develop a crop of their very own comedy and drama initiatives for cable, streaming, and broadcast. They’ll additionally supervise others’ initiatives, together with a set of TV sequence for Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters.
THR goes on to listing numerous characters who all are at present being developed into characteristic movies, hinting that there could also be some small-screen crossover: Spider-Man (and his related villains); Venom, who has a sequel to last year’s Tom Hardy vehicle within the works; Morbius, who Jared Leto is set to play in a live-action film; and Black Cat and Silver Sable, each of whom are being developed for their very own standalone options.
It’s an aggressive transfer, one undoubtedly conscious of Disney+’s upcoming slate of MCU tie-in sequence and to the continued increase marketplace for superhero content material on all screens. However it’s onerous to think about a greater pair to guess the home upon than two creatives who’ve made their names on unlikely success tales.
Little else is understood up to now about what precisely any potential sequence will appear to be, however anticipate this to develop into a significant story (or sequence of tales) within the very close to future.
