Sony Pictures Animation has moved up the release date of its animated Spider-Man film one week from December 21, 2018 to December 14, according to Exhibitor Relations. The film studio has not confirmed this move, and while movie site did not report any specific reason for the change, December 21 would have put it in direct first-week competition with Warner Bros.' Aquaman. December 14, however, currently puts it into direct head-to-head competition with Universal's Mortal Engines.
When originally announced, the animated Spider-Man was scheduled for release July 20, 2018, but was pushed back to December 21, 2018 several months later.
Sony recently hired Shameik Moore to voice Miles Morales, the star of this animated Spider-Man film. Bob Persichetti was previously confirmed as directing the film, based on a script by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
