Even More Characters Coming to Spider-Man's Cinematic Universe

Don't be surprised if some of the heroes and villains in the wall-crawler's universe make a debut or even get a spin-off down the road!

We've heard for quite some time that Venom could potentially get a spin-off movie, but now Amy Pascal, the Co-Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, stated they have plans for a fair share of characters from Peter Parker's universe. Talking during a presentation to investors today, Pascal said, "We are going to access Marvel's full world of Spider-Man characters, so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains."

This should come as no surprise, really. Sony has already shown they'e massively invested in the franchise by announcing there will be at least two more Spider-Man movies, and, based on everything we've heard, we're going to see a whole lot of familiar faces in them.

While Venom's the most obvious choice for a spin-off, who else would you like to see get their own flick or leap into one of Parker's movies? Could the Sinister Six hold their own film? Cloak and Dagger? A new take on the Clone Saga featuring Kaine, Ben Reilly and the Jackal? Sound off below, friends.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2, 2014.

Brcacuse Carol is Captain Marvel in the comics right now? If they were going to use Monica, wouldn't she be Captain Marvel?

@captain13: And why exactly would Monica be Carol's best friend and not be the other way around and why would Mar-Vell be her boyfriend and the other way around.

Why should the first and second Captain Marvel's have to bend the kree(;-)

to Carol.

i want the clone saga

but i know alot of people hated it

This could be cool. At least it seems like they're planning on leaning into their new continuity and won't pull another reboot in ten years like they did last time. Could be cool.

I'm still holding out hope that Sony and Disney will work something out to have a little crossover between Spider-Man and the MCU.

Superior SPiderman

I do not think they have enough time if they are doing the sinister 6 for the third movie. they would have to do doc ock in 3 and do superior vs green goblin in 4. I would so go for this. but where does the death of gwen stacy fit in? they should have done that in 1, but I understand not doing green goblin right off the bat again

Pretty sure this is going to be Cloak and dagger. There have been rumors of a movie being made about them for years.

It could be Venom also, or something to do with symbiotes, but wasn't that also a rumor a few months back? Haven't been many developments since then.

I want a Clone Saga film so there can be a Kaine spin-off.

Or just make a scarlet spider movie, and place the clone sage as a flashback.

I think having the entire Clone Saga as a mere flashback would confuse viewers too much.

Just parts about either kaine or ben would be enough

I think a full film would be best to flesh it out.

The problem is how you flesh it out, having one movie would give little time for kaine or ben riley to make an impression on the non-comic book audience.

Mysterio, Carnage and Venom, or Morbius and the spider transformation story from TAS.

Venom is a must.

Give us Black Cat and Puma

Venom..oh and would love to see Carnage

Posted by NoahMaximillion

Kingpin would be a great origin story, I'd also like to see Cardiac, Elector and Kraven

Posted by Onemoreposter

I see Morbius as a fairly obvious choice for a Solo hero film with Spidey showing up as a supporting character.

If they wanna create a large Spiderman Universe, then I think they should use Pete as the Nick Fury of the SSU (Sony-Spider-Universe) and have him popping up in each (or at least most) film linking all these characters together.

Also, who has the rights to the Punisher? I know he started out in ASM.
