Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse managed to deliver on some many levels providing us a great animated fare along with an amazing Spider-Man film. Not only that, it also brought into various Spidey-people/things from various realities wonderfully opening up possibilities to see spin-offs centered on the multitude of characters. With Spider-Gwen, the 1930s inspired Spider-Man Noir, the futuristic Sp//dr and the Looney Tunes-esque Spider-Ham, it looks like there’s plenty of potential.
One of the more striking characters would be Spider-Ham voiced by John Mulaney and the Into the Spider-Verse producers are very interested in making a spin-off centered on Peter Porker. If a spin-off based on the character would be developed, it’s safe to say that we’ll be seeing a ton of great visuals and slapstick comedy but it looks like Mulaney himself has a plan for how the film’s story could go.
Speaking to Variety, Mulaney revealed his pitch for a Spider-Ham spin-off and it sounds like it could go an investigate crime route. He said:
“[Spider-Ham] is a fun guy who is capable of great rage. To go see him back at the Daily Deagle — I could see a Watergate-like story at the Beagle where he’s both a reporter and Spider-Ham by night. This would be more like The Post or All The President’s Men or Spotlight, but we’d make it family friendly. Lots of bacon jokes, or, ‘that’s hamfisted,’”
That sounds like a great plan to be honest as it would no doubt bring an interesting narrative to the Spider-Verse. Granted, some of those films are pretty heavy especially Spotlight so it would definitely have to be lighter in tone. With an interesting enough narrative, this Spider-Ham flick could actually be something worthwhile.
