Spider-Man TV Universe Architect Chris Miller Describes MCU-Like Approach


Sony has tasked Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse producer Chris Miller, along with Phil Lord, to spearhead the creation and development of a Spider-Man TV Universe. The numerous series would be based on the Marvel characters Sony has rights to, which mostly includes Spider-Man heroes and villains.

Though specifics remain unclear at the moment, Miller revealed that he has a plan to connect each project, similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The deal Miller and Lord signed with Sony allows them to shop their projects to different studios. However, he's staying mum on exactly where the Spider-Man spinoffs could land.

“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,” Miller teased. “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 added.

“Hopefully we’ll know in the next few months where it’ll be and what the schedule will be,” Miller said.

Lord and Miller's deal reportedly includes projects involving Spider-Man, Venom, Morbius, Black Cat and Silver Sable, as well as the web-slinger's rogues gallery. Into the Spider-Verse's characters are reportedly part of the discussion as well. Lord and Miller will produce these television projects alongside former Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal, who now has a first-look deal with Universal Pictures.
