Those risk-crazy kids at Sony.
I’m being hyper-sarcastic, of course. They’d make a sequel if Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse had made a bunch of money OR had been a critical success OR racked up an Oscar for Best Animated Picture: but when you get all three, you clear your calendars and fake-grimace when various people start discreetly making the More Money hand gesture at you*. As somebody once said, there were two chances that this project wouldn’t be green-lit: fat, and slim.
Also: can’t wait! I also wouldn’t mind more Spider-Noir, but I already know that ain’t happening. Which is a shame, really.
*Fake-grimace because they know that it’s coming, and they even know that it makes long-term sense to keep the talent chipper and invested, you know what I mean? As long as nobody goes nuts about it, of course.
