ColliderÂ is reporting that Sony picks first-time director Bob Persichetti to helm the untitled animated Spidey movie which is due for 2018 release.Â Wait, what? I wasn’t even aware this existed! I imagineÂ it’s 3d but still pretty cool if it’s a decent story.
Details on this new Spider-Man film are under wraps, but recently rumors have swirled that it may be the first movie to focus on someone other than Peter Parker in the title roleâ€”namely Miles Morales, the first non-white Spider-Man. This would not only allow this film to further distance itself from the Marvel/Sony live-action reboot, but offer a unique story opportunity in presenting a Spider-Man whose origin audiences havenâ€™t already had ingrained into their heads. Itâ€™s a win-win!
