Looks like everyone's favorite wall-crawling superhero's coming back in all types in mediums in the next few years, as a new report from Variety states that "The Lego Movie" directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are being tapped to direct an "Animated Spider-Man Movie" for 2018. This follows the sensational deal that Marvel and Sony made to bring the wallcrawler to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in which a new Spider-Man live-action film starring a young Peter Parker will be released on July 28, 2017.
There's no news yet on the plot of the animated feature, only that it will "co-exist" with the live-action films, but stand on its own and exist independently as well. For more on the story, visit Comic Book Resources and Variety!
The animated Spider-Man movie is expected to swing into theaters on July 20, 2018.
