Sony’s out to prove that even when sharing film rights to Spider-Man with Marvel Studios, they can still come up with a franchise featuring the massive supporting cast of the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler. Their first post-MCU-Spider cinematic outing was Venom starring Tom Hardy, and on December there’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. On the LEGO front, about the most prominent Spider-Man set to be revealed is the yet-to-be released LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Spider-Man Mech vs. Venom Mech (76115). There’s also going to be a 3D-animated special entitled Spider-Man: Vexed by Venom, coming in 2019 and seemingly working on synergy with Sony’s movies. And this time, it looks like LEGO is giving its share to the Spider-Verse with the rumored arrival of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Sets
Particularly this rumor has it that LEGO will spring some surprise tie-in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse sets at year’s end. According to sources tapped by fellow LEGO news site Brick Fanatics, these LEGO sets will arrive December 1, ahead of the animated movie’s premiere.
Into the Spider-Verse is produced by The LEGO Movie’s directorial tandem of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, based on a Marvel Comics storyline that sees various incarnations of Spider-Man from different parallel dimensions brought together to face a powerful foe. The focus of this film is on young alternate Spider-Man, Miles Morales (Shameik Moore).
As always, this piece of news, like any rumors, should be taken with a pinch of salt. Ultimately it’ll be LEGO or their license partners (Marvel and Sony in this case) that’ll confirm or debunk what we have reported. We just hope that it’ll be soon enough.
