Fans of the original Spider-Man cartoon and graphics can rejoice — an animated feature film will hit the screens in 2018, Sony said Thursday.
The $4 billion Spider-Man franchise has spawned a devoted following, and the movie will bring the web slinger back to the animation landscape, Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman announced at CinemaCon.
Director duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who together helmed The Lego Movie and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, will write and produce the fully animated film.
Live-action film production will meanwhile continue from Marvel and Sony, including a reboot film slated for July 28, 2017, and a Spider-Man appearance in Captain America: Civil War in May 2016.
But to see the animated version, loyal fans of the crime-fighting superhero need to wait until July 20, 2018.
