With their contract at 20th Century Fox TV coming to a close, Phil Lord and Chris Miller who are responsible for launching the LEGO Movie franchise and the critical and commercial success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse just landed a massive deal at Sony Pictures TV to develop series, both live action and animated, including a focus on the Marvel characters that Sony still owns (guess there will still be two MCUs for quite some time, huh?).
We can’t wait to see what this means for Lord and Miller and maybe Sony perhaps rallying back into the ever-crowded race of content. If there were a duo to make something great, funny, and self-aware out of the complicated dichotomy between Sony’s Marvel characters and the actual Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’d be Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
We’ll just have to wait and see how they dazzle us beyond our expectations yet again.
