SONY / LEGO MOVIE Directors Plan 2018 SPIDER-MAN Animated Feature

Spider-Man

Marvel Studios may be producing a new rebooted live-action Spider-Man feature in 2017 and introducing the Wall-Crawler into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Sony still holds the character's rights and it looks like they're going to have their cake and eat it too.

Wednesday evening at CinemaCon in Las Vegas the studio announced Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will write and produce (but are not currently signed to direct) a Spider-Man animated feature for a July 20, 2018 release.

“The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing,” reads a Sony press release.

The film would presumably also have no relation to Marvel's current Ultimate Spider-Man animated TV series currently in its third season on Disney XD.

Look for more details when they are announced.
