The Animated Spider-Man Movie Has A New Director

With Phil Lord writing, as well as co-producing with his constant collaborator, Chris Miller, it's to be assumed that the animated Spider-Man will take on a more humorous tone, but still chock full of the action that a Spidey film would be expected to contain. Hiring Bob Persichietti as the project's director also enforces this hypothesis, as his previous credits trade in both sides of the equation, marrying the two into a potentially cohesive film. Which is a good thing too, because this film is going to need all of the help it can get to conquer its box office release frame.

Looking at the December 21, 2018 release date for the untitled Spider-Man film, it's alone on its day of release for now. However, looking at Christmas Day, Disney and Warner Bros have films dropping. While we don't know what the Warner Bros "event film" will be, we do know that Mary Poppins Returns will be Disney's offering, which more than likely will dominate the Christmas season. This is, of course, if Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas doesn't power through all of the competition between its November 9th release date that same year and the Christmas season it's intended for.

As soon as we have more information the animated Spider-Man film, such as whether or not Miles Morales will be the focus as previously rumored, you'll be the first to know. In the meantime, the untitled Spider-Man animated film is scheduled for December 21, 2018.
