New animated Spider-Man film in the works

Having begun his life as a comic book, Spider-Man will soon return to his animated roots.

Tom Rothman, Chairman of Sony Pictures, has revealed that Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will helm the project, as well as writing and producing it.

In addition to the Lego Movie, Lord and Miller have numerous credits on their CVs including 22 Jump Street and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

It’s a busy time at the moment for Spider-Man, it seems. It was recently revealed that the superhero will join in with members of The Avengers in future movies, as well as having his own standalone film released in July 2017.

Those of you looking forward to the animated incarnation of the webbed warrior will have quite the wait though, with the film slated to come out a year later in July of 2018.
