Bendis Confirms SPIDER-MEN Sequel

Brian Michael Bendis teases Twitter followers that a sequel to the SPIDER-MEN mini-series is on its way.

Last year's mini-series SPIDER-MEN, written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Sara Pichelli, was one of the best things to come out of Marvel comics in 2012. It was the first time we saw the 616 universe and the Ultimate universe cross-over, as Peter Parker is dragged into the Ultimate universe while fighting Mysterio and has to deal with the new Spider-Man and the impact his Ultimate counter-part had on that universe.

Many loved this series, and while it worked great on it's own as a singular story, there are lots of fans who are clamoring for more. These fans may be getting what they want as Brian Michael Bendis answered this fan's question on his twitter page.

As of right now, all we know is that there will be a Spider-Men sequel, and there's no other information as of yet. What could happen in this next series though? Is it time for Miles Morales to make his way over to the 616 universe? Will Peter end up, once again, in the Ultimate universe? There are tons of possibilities for this upcoming mini-series and as long as Bendis is writing it, and it remains just a singular book that doesn't bleed over into other series, it will be worth the read. The original series was more than just a solid book. It was an incredibly emotional read and had a great balance of story and action.

What if the idea of Spider-Men is bigger than the two of these characters? As crazy as it may sound, the idea of Spider-Men from other universes inside of Marvel, like Miguel O'Hara, seems like a very intriguing idea. Maybe I'm just a sucker for the 2099 era of Marvel comics, but the thought of all three of these character together seems really cool, especially since Dan Slott recently announced Spider-Man 2099 would make his way into the 616 universe soon.

What do you guys think about this sequel? What would you like to see?

It'd be cool to see how the Superior Spider-Man interacts with alternate versions of Spidey.

I'm in agreement with a lot of you guys. I want this to be Peter and not Spider-Ock (I know a few of you hate that I call him that).

Wow, sounds like this was popular. Looks like I have a new story arc to go hunt down.

If it's not Peter then it should be 2099 not that I'm fond of the character. I just not into Doc Ock meeting Miles.

Yes, that will be cool, but only if 616 Spider Man is Peter Parker, not the "Superior" Dock Ock.

Would Bendis write 616 Spidey as being Doc Ock/Peter Parker or not? If he doesn't, that means the whole story happens out of continuity. Doesn't it?

I hope Miles doesn't team up with Doc.Ock Spidey ,if that happened Peters life would be utterly ruined.

I can't wait for this. Maybe we'll find out who Miles is in 616.
