Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hasn’t even been released and Sony is confident that the film will be received well. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Sony Pictures Animation has tapped the showrunners behind Dreamworks’ Voltron: Legendary Defender, Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, to expand the animated corner of the Spider-hero world.
Dos Santos has been picked up to direct the sequel to Into The Spider-Verse, which is being penned by Wonder Woman 1984 scribe David Callaham. Montgomery, on the other hand, is now working on a spin-off film for fan-favorite character Gwen Stacy, aka Spider-Gwen. With that kind of commitment, Sony must certainly be proud of the film that’s being released in a few short weeks.
Sony Pictures Animation has debuted a fantastic, new trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse giving us our first look at Spider-Man Noir, and Spider-Ham, as well as a peek into what the story of the film is set to be. After the Kingpin uses a super-collider to open the door to other dimensions, reality begins to collapse, and only Spider-Man(s) can save it.
Shameik Moore (The Get Down), voices Miles Morales in the film. He is joined by Liev Schreiber as Kingpin, Mahershala Ali as Miles’ Uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles’ father Jefferson, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles’ mother Rio, Lily Tomlin as Aunt May, with Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, Jake Johnson as Peter Parker, and Nicolas Cage as Spider-Man Noir.
Collider is reporting that Sony Pictures has tapped Richard Wenk (The Equalizer) to pen a script for a Kraven the Hunter film. The long-time Spider-Man villain, real name is Sergei Kravinoff, was an aristocrat who became obsessed with big game hunting. He considers Spider-Man the ultimate prey, and the two have traded blows several times.
Kraven the Hunter is expected to join Venom in “Sony’s Marvel Universe” alongside Silver & Black, which was put on hold indefinitely a few months ago, most likely to gauge the success of Venom.
Josh, Theo, and Bovi are back for a Pre-SDCC roller-coaster… of news! It’s not a train! Covering the latest cool shit that pop culture has to offer!
Casting for Spider-Man: Far From Home, a ton of pre-SDCC photos, and some excellent re-sequel (requel?) announcements on this week’s Analog! Listen to this week’s episode, and follow us on Instagram – Instagram.com/AnalogCast! We’ll be live-streaming throughout SDCC!

It’s been rumored that classic Spider-Man villain, The Chameleon, would be showing up in Spider-Man: Far From Home, and now it seems we’re a little closer to that confirmation. Deadline is reporting that Numan Acar (Homeland) has been added to the cast of the sequel, though no details on his role have been revealed, we know that he’ll be playing a character named Dmitri, which could signify his role as Dmitri Smerdyakov, a.k.a. The Chameleon.
This is still speculation, but given the that Acar can speak numerous languages, and the globe-trotting nature of the film, it could certainly be true.
It would seem that Nick Fury has more to do after his return in Captain Marvel. Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed over on his Instagram that he’s in the United Kingdom, and that he’s making his return as Nick Fury. However, it looks like the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director will be rocking some facial hair, confirming this role likely won’t involve Captain Marvel, but instead the currently filming friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
How the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. will play into the story has yet to be seen, but seeing as Spider-Man: Far From Home is the first film after Avengers 4, meant to lead us into a new chapter of the MCU, it makes sense to see the man that started it all.
The famed creator of many of the greatest characters in comic book history – including Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, The Question, and Squirrel Girl – Steve Ditko, has passed at the age of 90. Ditko, despite being one of the most notable creators in all of comic books, was notoriously reclusive, having never done an interview, and with few pictures of him existing.
Steve Ditko will be remembered forever as one of the greatest, and he will be sorely missed.
The guys are back from a brief, technical hiatus, and they’re better than ever! Covering the latest cool shit that pop culture has to offer!

The cast of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse continues to grow and become more and more exciting, as reports are saying that veteran genre actor, Nicolas Cage, has been cast as the mysterious Spider-Man Noir in the upcoming animated film. Cage joins Shamiek Moore as Miles Morales, Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, and Jake Johnson as Peter Parker.
We should expect to hear more later this month as the film should have a fairly large presence at this year’s SDCC.
Academy Award-winner Jared Leto has officially signed on to star as Dr. Michael Morbius, a.k.a. Morbius the Living Vampire, in Sony’s upcoming Spider-Man spinoff, Morbius The Living Vampire. Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) will direct the film with a script from the writing duo of Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama, whose past credits include Power Rangers, The Last Witch Hunter, and Dracula Untold.
The film currently has no release date set, but we should expect to hear more news out of San Diego Comic-Con alongside new information on Venom, and perhaps even the newly announced Silk.
