John Mulaney Pitches His Idea for a Spider-Ham Movie

Spider-Ham was probably one of the fan-favorite characters to come out of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and there have been rumbling going around that a spinoff could be in the works for Peter Porker. John Mulaney, who voices Spider-Ham in the film, pitches his idea on what story his spinoff could have.

Talking to Variety, Mulaney explains:

"[Spider-Ham] is a fun guy who is capable of great rage. To go see him back at the Daily Beagle — 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 ham-fisted.'"

I don't know how serious Mulaney is about his pitch, but I could see a sequel with Spider-Ham going around and trying to solve a mystery. It's basically like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but with Spider-Ham in the center and not Bob Hoskins.

Out of all the Spider-characters in Spider-Verse, undoubtedly most of the characterization went to Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and Gwen Stacy. Spider-Noir, Peni Parker, and Spider-Ham were a bit on the sidelines, but I think Spider-Ham was the one who was able to stand out the most.

We don't know when we're going to see the characters again, but Sony is said to already be working on a sequel plus a bunch of different spin-offs.
