Between Venom, the bits of Infinity War Tom Holland was in before he sadly turned into dust, and the free-roaming PS4 game, it's been a bumper year for fans of Spider-Man and Spider-Man-adjacent larks.

There's more to come yet, too: Into The Spider-Verse, the animated alternate-dimensions caper is out on 12 December, and Deadline reports that an all-female spin-off is already in the works too.

That spin-off will focus on three generations of Spider-Women, and though nothing's confirmed yet it's likely to focus on Spider-Gwen from the upcoming Into The Spider-Verse. Bek Smith, who wrote on the sci-fi mystery Zoo, will do the script, and it'll be produced by Amy Pascal, who also sorted out the 2016 Ghostbusters, Venom and Spider-Man: Homecoming.

On top of that, there's also a sequel to Into The Spider-Verse in the works already, which is expected to see Joaquim Dos Santos - lately of animated series GI Joe: Resolute and Justice League Unlimited - direct a script by The Expendables and Wonder Woman 1984 writer David Callaham. You might know Dos Santos by his fan-christening of 'Doctor Fight', though you worry about the academic rigour of an institution which hands out PhDs for smacking people about.
