The Ultimate Spider-Man will at last make it to the big-screen in Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie…
Here’s the news from the horse’s mouth:
The movie is definitely in safe hands with Phil Lord and Chris Miller as they are the hottest directors of animated movies around at the moment – after helming the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs franchise and the smash-hit The LEGO Movie. They will break into live-action next year with the Han Solo Star Wars Anthology movie.
In case you don’t know, Miles Morales is a 15-year-old half-black/half-Hispanic teen who took up the mantle of Spider-Man after Peter Parker died (in the Ultimate universe, at least). Fans have been crying out for him to make it to the movies forever, and at last Sony have granted their wish.
Previously, Donald Glover voiced Miles in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon show, after campaigning for the role in live-action. Seeing as he has been cast in an unknown part in Spider-Man: Homecoming, it is unlikely that he will reprise his role for his movie.
All we know for certain is that it is pencilled in for a December 21st 2018 release date.
