Sony Pictures' Animated SPIDER-MAN Film Will Break New Ground
During Sony Pictures' CinemaCon presentation they not only announced the official title for Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming film, but they also talked a little bit about the animated Spider-Man film coming that is currently being developed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
I was already curious to see what Sony was planning for this animated film, and although they didn't show us anything except for the image above, they did say that it will break new ground.
Sony Pictures Animation president Kristine Belson talked briefly about the film, saying that it will offer fans “a vision of Spider-man that will take your breath away.” Not only that, but she also says that “conceptually and visually, it will break new ground for the superhero genre.”
Those are bold claims, but I'm definitely intrigued by her words. We're just going to have to wait until 2018 to be able to see what exactly she is talking about. I imagine they have created some new, innovative animation techniques that will give the film a look unlike we've ever seen before, which would be pretty cool.
Sony is obviously excited about this production. We don't know anything about the story, but it's an independent story that will take place outside of the MCU. The movie is scheduled to be released on December 21st, 2018, and Sony head Tom Rothman concluded saying it's going to be “fucking awesome.”
