Lauren Montgomery, known for co-directing DC animated films Batman: Year One and Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, is in talks to direct the upcoming project. Bek Smith will be penning the script and Amy Pascal will be serving as producer.

Although further details on the project is yet to be unveiled, it is being conjectured that the film could revolve around Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, Madame Web, Spider-Girl and Silk.

Expanding the Spider-Man universe further would be the sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which also is in pipeline. The Last Airbender and Netflix’s Voltron series director Joaquim Dos Santos has been roped in to direct the sequel. David Callaham, who has worked on projects such as The Expendables, Wonder Woman 1984 and Zombieland 2, is writing the film.

Venom, based on a Spider-Man supervillain and starring Tom Hardy, released last month to mixed reviews from critics.

Produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, Into the Spider-Verse will be hitting theatres on 14 December.
