Sony Announces Plans for Animated Spider-Man Film
Sony has announced that they will be releasing an animated version of Spider-Man, and the team behind The Lego Movie, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, will be taking the helm.
The announcement was made at CinemaCon, in Las Vegas, by Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman. He said, "The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing."
Next up for the Spider-Man character is an appearance in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, which will be relapsed on May 6, 2016, followed by a feature live action film to be released on July 28, 2017.
