On April 2015, Sony announced that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were writing and producing a Spider-Man animated comedy in development at Sony Pictures Animation. As revealed by the e-mail leak one year before, the duo had been previously courted by Sony to take over the studio's animation division. The Spider-Man animation would be independent of any live-action adaptations,[1] and is currently set for release on December 21, 2018.[2] Sony Pictures Animation president Kristine Belson unveiled the film's logo, with the working title Animated Spider-Man, at CinemaCon 2016, and declared that “conceptually and visually, [the film] will break new ground for the superhero genre.”[3] On June 20, 2016, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Bob Persichetti will direct the animated film.[4] Sony announced that Miles Morales will be the Spider-Man in the film and Peter Ramsey will serve as co-director.[5] It will be released on December 21, 2018.[6][7]
