In a recent interview, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord talked about the potential of a Spider-Ham spinoff.
During the interview the two were asked if they might try to bring the characters to television and what characters they would bring. Both of them seemed to agree that the Sus scrofa domesticus arachnid would be the best pick. Miller first stated that he would like to see a string of shorts starring the character:
I’d love to see a string of Spider-Ham shorts.
Lord agreed but was a bit more ambitious with his response:
I just want to Spider-Ham’s shorts. I want to spin off the Spider-Ham cinematic television universe.
Lord, however, seemed unsure if any series about the Spider-Man character would ever take off:
No, who knows. One thing at a time.
From the sound of things, though, the two have their pick for the next big Spider-Man series.
