UPDATE: Sony has officially announced a release date for their animated Spider-Man movie, along with another director and confirmation that Miles Morales will be the main character. You can find the details below.
Even though Sony Pictures appears to have Spider-Man back on track thanks to their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring the webslinger into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the studio is still working on a completely different version of the wallcrawler.
An animated Spider-Man movie was first announced at CinemaCon back in April of 2015 with The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller producing alongside Avi Arad and Amy Pascal. The movie was originally slated for a release in the summer of 2018, but has since been pushed back to Christmas. However, we still haven’t heard how this animated Spider-Man movie will be different from the new live-action Spider-Man franchise, other than breaking new visual ground.
That changes today if a new casting call is to be believed, as it indicates that we might finally see a version of Spider-Man that fans have been clamoring for since The Amazing Spider-Man was in development a few years ago. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The debut of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War allowed the webslinger played by Tom Holland to get quite a suit upgrade when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) recruited him to help in his fight against Steve Rogers. As we’ve seen in the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, there have been even more additions to the suit, including web wings, a staple of the classic comics version of Spidey. And now a new promo video reveals some of the other key upgrades we’ll see in the wallcrawler’s first solo outing on the big screen.
To go along with the Consumer Electronics Show going on this week, Marvel has released a video looking at a few of the changes to Spider-Man’s suit. They highlight some details that we already knew about, such as the web wings and the holographic display that was teased in the credits scene that played after Captain America: Civil War, but there are a couple new details we didn’t know about as well.
