Every Rumored, <font color=red>Confirmed</font>, And Canceled SPIDER-MAN Movie And Spinoff In The Works At Marvel And Sony

Spidey's big screen future is looking busier than ever as the wall-crawler is not only part of the MCU but Sony is developing a number of spinoffs. Here's a breakdown of them all and where things stand...

Spider-Man: Homecoming was a triumph for Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, with the latter particularly grateful for a Spider-Man movie which was embraced by fans and moviegoers alike (the same could not be said for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 back in 2014). Despite finding great success by putting the iconic hero in the MCU, Sony is still attempting to develop a huge number of spinoffs.

Some of those sound exciting and others are quite clearly pretty ill-advised but the studio is intent on creating a shared universe of sorts which features countless Spider-Man characters...but not Spidey.

Here, we're taking a look at every single Spider-Man movie on the way; those include ones set in the MCU and spinoffs in their own world and focus on villains, heroes, and characters we never expected to see on screen. We also list those which have been cancelled or are no longer in development, not to mention the projects which are rumoured. So, hit the "View List" button to take a look at them all.

Venom - Confirmed

Starring Tom Hardy, the Venom movie has drawn the ire of many fans who would prefer to see the character take on Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the second trailer was a vast improvement over the first, it also made it clear that this spinoff won't be following the source material in terms of Eddie Brock's origin story, something which is bound to upset those same fans even further. This one could surprise us all but is more likely to get these spinoffs off to a pretty terrible start. 

Avengers 4 - Rumored

Peter Parker met his maker in Avengers: Infinity War after Thanos snapped his fingers and wiped out half of the universe. While the wall-crawler returning from the dead is inevitable, we don't know if that will happen in Avengers 4 or if it's a moment Marvel might instead save for Spider-Man: Far From Home. Personally, I think the former will likely be where he makes his return to the MCU and while that will probably be brief, it will make another appearance in this shared world for the iconic hero.

Spider-Man: Far From Home - Confirmed

Tom Holland "leaked" the title of Spider-Man: Far From Home over the weekend and we've known for a while now that Jake Gyllenhaal will be taking on the role of Mysterio in that globetrotting adventure which will see Peter Parker visit everywhere from Paris to London. Beyond that, we don't really know much about what to expect from the sequel but producer Amy Pascal has previously been quoted as saying that the movie starts just minutes after Avengers 4 wraps up which is definitely intriguing. 

Silver & Black - Delayed

Things were looking good for Silver & Black for a while but the movie - which looks set to focus on the unlikely pairing of Silver Sable and Black Cat - has been delayed (seemingly indefinitely) as extensive rewrites take place. On the plus side, Gina Price-Bythewood remains attached to direct and so the project isn't in quite as terrible a position as a movie like Gambit, for example. With a 2019 release now looking unlikely, we could now be waiting for this female-led team-up until well into 2020.

Sinister Six - Cancelled

When The Amazing Spider-Man franchise was alive and well, Sony was plotting Sinister Six and Venom movies and while a version of the latter is still happening, the former is almost certainly dead. We know that a script by Drew Goddard exists but the filmmaker has now been hired by Fox to take the helm of X-Force, another movie which could very well end up being cancelled if the Disney/Fox merger goes through. There is, however, a good chance this villainous team could show up in the MCU.

Silk - Rumoured

News of this one first came our way over the weekend but it honestly wasn't that surprising. Cindy Moon was bitten by the same spider that gave Peter Parker his extraordinary powers and after spending years in hiding thanks to the intervention of Ezekiel, she resurfaced to become one of the wall-crawler's closest allies and a hero in her own right. That actually has all the makings of a great solo movie and while it would be nice seeing this set in the MCU, it could work well as a standalone story.

Kraven The Hunter - Rumoured

Black Panther director Ryan Coogler has revealed that he lobbied to include Kraven the Hunter in that movie but it didn't happen for a number of reasons. While it's hard to imagine Marvel Studios not wanting to get their hands on the villain, there's only so much that can be done with a character who runs around in a leotard trying to hunt a teenager! That could explain why Sony is mulling over a spinoff for Kraven and while we've not heard anything for a while, it probably could still happen. 

Mysterio - Cancelled

When it was mentioned by the trades that a Kraven the Hunter movie is in the works, we also heard that a standalone feature for Mysterio was being developed by Sony. Now that the villain is going to be Spider-Man: Far From Home's big bad, it's pretty obvious that won't be happening as it would be nonsensical to have two versions of the same character running around on the big screen at the same time. Then again, we all know what Sony is like so it is, of course, possible that it's still in the works.

Morbius The Living Vampire - Confirmed

This one actually has some potential. Chances are it would be another PG-13 "dark" superhero movie in the same vein as Venom but slapping an R-Rating on the spinoff would be a smart move, especially as the world of horror is one rarely explored by the superhero movie genre. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are writing the script and while no director has been attached, things already seem to be heading in the right direction because it sounds like it will actually follow the comics to a large extent.

Nightwatch - Confirmed

Of all the spinoffs Sony could start developing, it's fair to say none of us could have expected Nightwatch to be among them. It's been said that Spike Lee could end up taking the helm of this one and Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker is reportedly penning the screenplay. This could be Sony's Black Panther if it's handled the right way and the story of this character - which involves time-travel and vigilante crimefighting - is one which is definitely going to be worth keeping an eye on.

Untitled Spider-Man: Far From Home Sequel - Rumoured

We don't know how far forward Sony's deal with Marvel Studios stretches but assuming Spider-Man: Far From Home is a success, there's no reason to suspect the former will suddenly start going it alone with the wall-crawler. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, though, so here's hoping it's made official soon as the prevailing theory right now is that Kevin Feige is planning on bringing the Sinister Six to the big screen in this third chapter, something which actually makes a whole lot of sense thinking about it.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse - Confirmed

This one is set to arrive in December and while much of the story is being kept under wraps, that second trailer pointed to it being nothing short of spectacular. Miles Morales taking the lead is exciting in and of itself but when you throw an older version of Peter Parker into the mix (not to mention Spider-Gwen and a number of other alternate universe characters), it's fair to say that this animated spinoff will be embraced by fans in a big way. Here's hoping it launches an amazing franchise!
