The success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has sparked numerous projects in both film and television. In fact, we’ve received a variety of different television shows set in the MCU over the last few years. Sony has recently announced their own similar approach with two live-action Spider-Man shows – though both of the Marvel shows appear to have been shut down.
As revealed by THR during their chat with Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the writers’ strike has halted production on both shows. Furthermore, it’s unknown when production could pick up again. Thus there seems to be yet another wrench thrown into Sony’s plans to catch up with the MCU.
Here’s what was shared about the two Marvel shows:
“Their writers rooms shut down for a third season of The Afterparty as well as Amazon’s live-action Spider-Verse TV shows (Silk and another based on the Spider-Man Noir character).”
It’s obvious that the writers’ strike is impacting many projects that are being written or shot at this moment. Sadly, we’ll have to see when Silk and the Spider-Man Noir series may potentially go back into production. Sony has struggled to branch off their Spider-Man projects with spin-offs in the past and this seems to be yet another example of that. On the bright side, there are still several other projects in the works and soon to be on the way.
This includes Kraven the Hunter, Madame Web, Venom 3, and various other projects that have already been announced. Though it’s possible that the writers’ strike could impact some of these as well. Ultimately, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. The next Spider-Man project to be released will be Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse which hits theaters in June.
Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any additional Marvel updates as we have them. For now, it’s unknown when production will resume on these two live-action Spider-Man shows.
