Sony has already announced a new slew of Spider-Man films, including a reboot of the series, but at CinemaCon in Vegas on Wednesday night, Sony announced that they will be making an animated feature of everyone's favorite wall-crawler.
The film is slated for a July 20, 2018 release and will be written and produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the two directors behind The LEGO Movie. There is no director attached to the Spider-Man animated film yet.
The film will be a bit more like the comic book version, according to a press release:
Spider-Man back to his graphic roots with the first-of-its-kind animated Spider-Man feature, it was announced today at CinemaCon by Tom Rothman, chairman of the Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group. The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing.
The animated Spider-Man film opens up on July 20, 2018.
