Bendis Confirms SPIDER-MEN Sequel

Brian Michael Bendis teases Twitter followers that a sequel to the SPIDER-MEN mini-series is on its way.

Last year's mini-series SPIDER-MEN, written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Sara Pichelli, was one of the best things to come out of Marvel comics in 2012. It was the first time we saw the 616 universe and the Ultimate universe cross-over, as Peter Parker is dragged into the Ultimate universe while fighting Mysterio and has to deal with the new Spider-Man and the impact his Ultimate counter-part had on that universe.

Many loved this series, and while it worked great on it's own as a singular story, there are lots of fans who are clamoring for more. These fans may be getting what they want as Brian Michael Bendis answered this fan's question on his twitter page.

As of right now, all we know is that there will be a Spider-Men sequel, and there's no other information as of yet. What could happen in this next series though? Is it time for Miles Morales to make his way over to the 616 universe? Will Peter end up, once again, in the Ultimate universe? There are tons of possibilities for this upcoming mini-series and as long as Bendis is writing it, and it remains just a singular book that doesn't bleed over into other series, it will be worth the read. The original series was more than just a solid book. It was an incredibly emotional read and had a great balance of story and action.

What if the idea of Spider-Men is bigger than the two of these characters? As crazy as it may sound, the idea of Spider-Men from other universes inside of Marvel, like Miguel O'Hara, seems like a very intriguing idea. Maybe I'm just a sucker for the 2099 era of Marvel comics, but the thought of all three of these character together seems really cool, especially since Dan Slott recently announced Spider-Man 2099 would make his way into the 616 universe soon.

What do you guys think about this sequel? What would you like to see?

YES PLEASE!!!!!!

Posted by guttridgeb

I can't wait for this. Maybe we'll find out who Miles is in 616.

Posted by impossibilly

This is terrific news! Spider-Men was one of my favorite comics of 2012.

This is good news

Posted by MightyMODOK

I hope Miles doesn't team up with Doc.Ock Spidey ,if that happened Peters life would be utterly ruined.

Posted by StMichalofWilson

Nice. I would like to see how the Superior Spider-Man handles Miles; also see Miles of 616!

Posted by danhimself

WOOOHOOO!!!

I just hope that Peter is back by then

Posted by Mucklefluga

Awesome!!

Posted by regrivett

Would Bendis write 616 Spidey as being Doc Ock/Peter Parker or not? If he doesn't, that means the whole story happens out of continuity. Doesn't it?

Posted by csguterres

Yes, that will be cool, but only if 616 Spider Man is Peter Parker, not the "Superior" Dock Ock.

Posted by Dernman

If it's not Peter then it should be 2099 not that I'm fond of the character. I just not into Doc Ock meeting Miles.

Posted by akbogert

Wow, sounds like this was popular. Looks like I have a new story arc to go hunt down.

Posted by inferiorego

I'm in agreement with a lot of you guys. I want this to be Peter and not Spider-Ock (I know a few of you hate that I call him that).

It'd be cool to see how the Superior Spider-Man interacts with alternate versions of Spidey.

Posted by CrimsonSquire

Great! I hope we get Miles and Octavius as the main characters. The interaction would be amazing!

:D

Ugh am I the only one not taken in by this news? Not a fan of Miles or Bendis' writing of him so it's always a miss from me. Though this might explain Miguel's teased appearance in the current timeline.

awesome news, one of my favorite purchases. 
Posted by Teerack

Awesome. Meaning Miles Morales 616 soon? :O

Posted by VictorVonDoom_1

Hell yes! The first Spider-Men was good and for a sequel confirmed, better. I just wonder how Ock will fit into all this.

Posted by mrpandopool

Hell yes!! Maybe they can do something like Shattered Dimensions that would be very cool. But also instead of going to the ultimate universe make Miles go to the 616 universe. And if they do the same of going from 616 to Ultimate universe then I really want an Ultimate Spiderwoman part where she meets 616 Peter Parker/Ock that would be interesting and more if they use Ghost Peter Parker.

Talking out of topic I´d really like Peter´s ghost to have possessing powers. That could be interesting.

Posted by GothamRed

So will we see other spider-men like spider-man 2099 or noir or the like

Posted by thenexusrebound

The Spider-men books were so much fun. I wonder what the mix will be, and maybe we will meet 616 Miles.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

After that cliffhanger from the first mini series I am glad to see that they are making a sequel to Spider-men

Posted by queenfrost_

hopefully gwen stacy is involved

Posted by SoA

im excited but i like how the first spidermen ended , peter looks up miles in his world and is shocked (i personally wanted miles dead in 616 as peter is dead in ultimate) hopefully this would be done right , can't wait

Posted by Mutant God

@StMichalofWilson: I concur.

THIS PLEASES ME

Posted by SoopDawg

What Marvel need to do in addition to another Spider-Men story is bring May "May Day" Parker to the 616 universe permanently.

Miles in 616 universe doesn't mean anything to me. Peter need to go back and interact with the Mary Jane in the Ultimate Universe.

Posted by JamDamage

here's a book a lot of people didn't want but loved. It was great. looking forward to this.

Probably not since everbody in Ultimate who matter to Peter made peace with him. Also the cliffhanger from the end of Spider-Men was about Peter looking for 616 Miles.

i hope its spiderman not superior pervert octopus pretending to be a spiderman meeting with miles again

Peter and Mary Jane from the Ultimate universe never interacted.

Isn't Miguel already in the 616? Didn't he give up his Superhero life to settle down with his girlfriend and become a cook at a restaurant?

Posted by DATNIGGA

Miguel....

Posted by micAL

I was down & waiting for this for a minute, but now im kinda nervous with otto parker...

Posted by saoakden

Awesome!!!! I love Spider-Men, it be a crime if they didn't do a sequel, especially after that ending. Man I love the Spider-Men story, I am Super Excited to hear this.

Posted by nappystr8

Oh man, even though Ultimate Spider-Man is one of my favorite books, I wasn't a huge fan of Spider-Men. But if this became a three Spider-Man team-up between Peter (or Otto), Miles, and Miguel, I would be very excited. Also want more info on that 616 cliffhanger.

Posted by AmazingWebHead

First time? Are we forgetting Shattered Dimensions?

Edited by Duo_forbidden

AWESOME. That ending was such a tease.

Those Spider-Men were Amazing and Ultimate in name online. They're not canon and in fact there's nothing about the Ultimate Spider-Man besides his name that even hints that he came form the Ultimate Universe. They just wanted to be able to use black suit Spidey and had to say he came from somewhere else, basically.

Edited by mattwing87

I am excited! I want an Ultimates/Avengers cross over!! Or an Ultimate X-Men/X-Men cross over where the main X-Men find out half of them are dead in the Ultimate universe lol

Posted by Illuminatus

Who says Brian Michael Bendis is an unoriginal hack? Psh. 

Posted by danhimself

this news made me go reread Spider-men and after reading it again I have to say that it is just as good the second time around....I had tears in my eyes all over again during issues 3 and 4

I really feel like that if there was one single character that Bendis absolutely gets then it would be Spider-man and I think he should take over writing the 616 book after Slott is done
