Lord and Miller Are Working On A Spider-Man Animated Movie
As revealed at Cinema Con the project will be masterminded by The Lego Movie's Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The switch to the new medium will allow them a lot of freedom with the character, as it will exist separate from the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the character. And as Lord and Miller have yet to put a foot wrong, there's a lot of reason to be excited about this.
Notably Lord and Miller have been signed on to write the treatment and act as producers. Where possibly alarm bells sound is that they haven't been confirmed to direct, or even write the script. Still, we'd like to think that the duo will do their best to hire talented people, even if they've got too much on their plate to be too heavily involved themselves.
The movie is due to hit cinemas in July 2018
