Riding on the success of the Venom franchise and the anticipation for both Morbius and Kraven the Hunter, Sony Pictures is now rumored to be expanding its own Spider-verse with even more Spider-Man villain spin-offs.

According to a new report from The Direct — which cited insider Daniel Richtman as its source — the company is now looking to develop franchises for two more of Spidey’s most notorious enemies: Rhino and Sandman. Both have already had representations on the silver screen, with Sandman appearing in 2007’s Spider-Man 3 and Rhino making a short cameo at the end of 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

While not much else is known about the two new projects right now, the rumors do suggest that they’ll be solo films centered around each character similar to what Sony has been doing with VenomMorbius, and Kraven the Hunter, but given the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans can expect that it’s only a matter of time before the studio brings all of these troublemakers together.

Of course, Sony has yet to confirm any of these plans, so fans of Spider-Man should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Power Rangers reboot is coming to Netflix.
