An untitled Spider-Man spinoff is in the works at Sony, which will be written by "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" co-writer Roberto Orci.
The news comes as Sony continues to develop its own Marvel universe apart from the MCU. It released "Venom" in 2018, with Tom Hardy in the leading role. Both a sequel to that film and the highly-anticipated "Morbius" movie are due out this year. Of course, Sony also continues to work with Tom Holland's Spider-Man and Marvel, with "Spider-Man: Homecoming 3" expected summer of 2021.
Orci has co-written "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" with three others in 2014. He's also worked in "Star Trek", starting with the 2009 movie. He then returned for its sequels "Star Trek Into Darkness" and "Star Trek Beyond".
Though Orci has worked extensively in TV over the years, his last film writing credit was on "The Amazing Spider-Man 2".
He's also served as a producer on films since.
