Subj: Cool Into the Spider-Verse Speculation! MAJOR SPOILERS!!!

Been a while, but if you've seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (and if you haven't, drop everything you're doing and go see it! It's great!) you may have spotted a cool hint about what direction this new film series might take in the future.
MAJOR SPOILER WARNING!!!!
So, in the movie, we're introduced to a washed-up Peter Parker in his late 30s, early 40s who got separated from Mary Jane and is experiencing a major mid-life crisis. At one point, he reveals that one of the main reasons he and MJ split was because she wanted kids and he wasn't ready.
Over the course of the movie, however, this Peter becomes something of a father figure/mentor to Miles Morales and, at the end, he returns to his home dimension and begins reconciling with his Mary Jane.
So I'm thinking -- since Into the Spider-Verse is already a big hit with several sequels and spin-offs already in the works, what if...
This Peter Parker is actually Mayday Parker's father????
It makes perfect sense -- while he's not an exact counterpart to the MC2 Peter, this Peter is clearly heading for the next stage of his life and has already shown he has the ability to train future generations of Spider-People. Plus, seeing as how the movie plays fast and loose with time (we get a glimpse of Spider-Man 2099 at the end and Spider-Gwen does a little bit of time travel) it's entirely possible that by the time the sequel comes out, Spider-Girl could make her big screen debut alongside the other Spider-People.
Even better, I hear that one of the spin-offs will focus exclusively on FEMALE Spider-People (primarily Spider-Gwen and Penni Parker, but also Silk, Spider-Woman, and very likely Spider-Girl!!)
Frankly, I really like the direction Sony is going with their Spider-films. Rather than rehashing old stories like they did with the terrible Amazing Spider-Man franchise, they're finally starting to embrace the rich variety of obscure Spider-stories from the comics -- and the results are amazing.
Anyway, what do you guys think? Will we finally see May in a Spider-Movie within the next 2 to 3 years?
