With Morbius and Venom 2 on the horizon, it looks like we’re about to get more spin-offs from Sony’s Spider-Man universe for Man-Wolf and Solo.

Rumor has it that there are two very unexpected Spider-Man spin-off films currently in development at Sony Pictures. According to The Illuminerdi, the studio is preparing to build their Marvel Universe with Man-Wolf and Solo movies.

Solo and Man-Wolf are somewhat lesser-known properties in the world of Marvel. The former, also known as James Bourne (not to be confused with Jason Bourne), is a counter-terrorism operative. He was created by David Michelinie and Marc Silvestri and first appeared in Web of Spider-Man No.19 in 1986.

In 1994, the character was granted his own four-issue limited series of the same name then a second five-issue limited series in 2016 (after Solo appeared in a Deadpool comic Deadpool and the Mercs for Money).

Solo wears bulletproof, quilted Kevlar armor and is gifted with superior intellect and close-quarters combat and marksmanship skills with many firearms and weapons. He also possesses cybernetic implants that allow him to teleport short distances. Solo is actually a hero in the traditional sense and true ally of Spider-Man, unlike other Sony headliners Venom and Morbius.

As for Man-Wolf, John Jonah Jameson III is the son of J. Jonah Jameson, publisher of the tabloid newspaper, The Daily Bugle. Jameson was an astronaut who made his debut in The Amazing Spider-Man Vol.1 No.1 in 1963, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. His Man-Wolf persona was created by Gerry Conway and Roy Thomas. Jameson became a lycanthropic creature when under the influence of the otherworldly Godstone.
