Sony has tapped The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller to write and produce a new Spider-Man animated movie.
The new feature, starring the Marvel superhero is scheduled to hit cinemas on July 20th, 2018.
The film’s announcement was made at CinemaCon in Las Vegas by Sony Pictures’ chairman, Tom Rothman who said the film will co-exist with the live-action Spider-Man universe, reports Variety.
However, a press release on the animated movie states “the film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing.”
Spider-Man will be making his next cinematic appearance in Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, hitting theatres on May 6th, 2016.
