SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDERVERSE Director Pete Ramsey Discusses Future Spider-Men And Donald Glover's Impact

While the sequel to Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse is a while away, we managed to catch up with director Pete Ramsey about potential Spider-men and how Donald Glover influenced the character. Hit the jump!

One of the most significant impacts in film, both culturally and in animation, was the release of Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse. Focusing on an entirely new Spider-Man in Miles Morales while also bringing new and interesting interpretations of other Spider-Men, the film ended up earning an academy award for its efforts and is now hailed as one of the best films in the genre.

Director Pete Ramsey poured his heart and soul into the film and proved to everyone that it's not how many times you get knocked down, its how many you times you get back up. Throughout the film, there have been countless easter eggs and Spider-people littered throughout the movie, but not everyone made the cut.

Recently, we were able to sit with Pete Ramsey and talk with him about the process of choosing Spider-Men and the possibility of future additions, including live-action. We also talk about that fantastic Donald Glover easter egg!

Literary Joe: I think one of my favorite parts of the movie is the Community cameo from Donald Glover. Do you know whose idea that was or how that came to be?

Peter Ramsey: That feels like it could have been anybody. It feels like it was probably a little Rodney Rothman Easter egg.

But it was definitely one of those things, where all through the production, the ghost of Donald Glover was hovering around in one way or another. So it's no surprise, that said, that he snuck in.


Literary Joe: And as we know, if it wasn't for Donald Glover, we wouldn't have Miles.

Peter Ramsey: Well yeah, depending on which version of the story you hear, that is very, very true.


Literary Joe: I know there's a sequel, and spin-offs, and a lot of stuff coming up for the Spider-Verse world. Is there any potential, or has there been any talk of potentially involving some of the live-action versions of Spider-Man?

Peter Ramsey: Yeah. Oh, we were playing with that idea for this one. There was definitely a pitch where live-action folks showed up.

So, you know, as for the next one, who knows, because we really were throwing every idea at them that we could. And so it could. I don't know, it could happen.

You know, I think at the time Marvel and Sony were like, "yeah... that's just a little too out of the box, everybody." But, they hadn't seen the movie.
