Sony's Animated SPIDER-MAN Movie Finally Has A Director; Will It Revolve Around Miles Morales?

Sony has revealed new details on their upcoming animated slate, and their Spider-Man movie has a director! However, some surprising details about who wrote the spinoff have also been revealed today...

Shooting may have only just started on Spider-Man: Homecoming, but Sony is already making plans for another big screen outing for the wall-crawler (or at least a version of him). Set for release in December 21st, 2018, the animated movie now has a director in the form of Bob Persichetti. He's never directed a feature, but has worked on almost countless releases, serving as head of story for Puss in Boots and The Little Prince. In a random bit of trivia, he also voiced the "Ohhh Cat" in the former. 

Interestingly, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that The LEGO Movie's Phil Lord penned this Spider-Man movie alone, but he will produce alongside partner Chris Miller. Also serving in that capacity is Amy Pascal and Avi Arad. Despite rumours that Miles Morales will be the focus of this animated spinoff, Sony reportedly refused to comment on that, so it looks like that's going to have to remain little more than speculation for the time being. Expect to hear more on this one soon enough anyway.
