Remember That Animated Spider-Man Movie? Cool, Well, Its Been Delayed

By  | 

But it’s still coming…we think.

Even though Marvel pretty much abandoned all of its plans for world domination a full-fledged Spider-Man Cinematic Universe after the deal they made with Marvel, not all of their Spidey spin-offs were pushed to the side following the announcement of Marvels Spider-Man reboot. In fact, one very big one was announced, as the studio revealed they were working with (who else?) Phil Lord and Chris Miller on an animated Spider-Man movie, to be released in the summer of 2018 (approximately a year after the live action one would hit theaters.)

It was a pretty crazy announcement, and one we still don’t really have all that much information for: it’s safe to say that Lord and Miller will be producing it, and probably have a hand in writing it as well, but would they be directing the picture too? It was hard to say at the time, what with the duo’s massive slate of franchises they have a say in (21 Jump Street, Lego, The Flash, The Last Man on Earth, Star Wars, etc.) possibly creating a bit of a scheduling difficulty. And though it’s not confirmed if that’s the reason for this animated Spider-Man movies delay, it could very well be a factor.

In any case, The Tracking Board on Twitter announced that the release date for the animated spin-off has been pushed back, moving from its original July release date into Christmas 2018 (or December 21, 2018 to be exact.) Here’s the tweet:

Sonys ANIMATED SPIDER-MAN flick will now cast its web 12/21/18 instead of summer 2018.

Once again, we know next to nothing about this film, and this new release date says little. Sure it could have been pushed back to allow Lord/Miller more time to work on it (especially if they are doing it in a directing capacity), or it could just be Sony seeing the massive success of Force Awakens and deciding they want some of that. Who’s to say, really. But as long as this project sticks around, it’s going to be interesting to see where it progresses for sure.


  • Four score and seven minutes ago, I read a sweet arltcie. Lol thanks

  • Er fuldstændig enig med dig i at det er ‘synd’ at sÃ¥ mange piger er bange for at styrketræne! Vi har jo brug for det! :DHar ogsÃ¥ selv lavet et indlæg om det: Smiles,Maia/

  • Kiki and Octavio – Wow! You really captured the spirit of this very special day! Beast and Kasey, you look glowing and I know you’ll keep that glow for the rest of your lives! We love you and were so happy to share in your amazing celebration! Awesome photos, Betsy and Jeff!

  • Thanks very much to Dave and Tonya at Ground Zero for the hookup. I thought it was a very good movie, although I’m going to have to let it sink in before I could rank it. Kudos on a rare trilogy where all three films were very good efforts.Distracting: Bane having the voice of Sean Connery, or at least a comedian’s Sean Connery impersonation.

  • Diabetics do take longer to heal, and have a harder time with generating new tissue; scar tissue is never as good as the original. As far as draining, packing a smaller wound would still allow for drainage and have much less risks of further complications. I wonder if they have public health nurses there to do home visits? Anyone know?

  • “The Town Anti-Semite”. Charming name. It just reconfirms that when you come right down to it, the extreme right and the extreme left can agree on one thing: it’s all the fault of the Jews.Thanks for reminding me.I deleted the post that offended you. Sorry it stayed up so long. I don’t personally blame the Jews for anything in particular. I’m keeping a sharp watch on Canada, though.

  • Ah. Jetzt klingelts.@Moggadodde & Birgit: Da sprechen die – äh – Frauen.@Hazamel: Das sind Damen in meinem Alter, keine Kinder…Ah. Und Glückwunsch zu Kommentar 3000 =)@flash: ah richtig, TT, ne? Bevor noch mehr denken, dass ich erst frisch einen Korb bekommen habe:Nein, das ist alles aufgestaut und wollte gestern raus…

  • Der burde være en ordbog der hører til. UDEN at det er snyd. Det er nemlig rigtigt nogle ord kan een ikke bruge men en anden kan godt.

  • Cheguei agora do café aqui da esquina. Se os “beatos” cheirarem tão mal como as beatas que estavam no cinzeiro cheio em cima da mesa, o Vaticano não é sítio onde eu vá beber uma bica nos tempos mais próximos.

  • Watching this video floors me in the best sense of the phrase!!!! Hallelujah!!! Such a powerful performance!!! Words cannot express, I just thank God for the passion and talent of this family and especially Jason.

  • I’ve been wanting to try bankig with cassava and your cake and photos only tempt me even more! I must say I’m in the fork and spoon boat (can’t use chopsticks very well…bad asian hehe).

  • Woodsman of KommiforniaI have a better one for you. In Minnesota you are required to “retreat” before you can defend yourself or a loved one. Wonder what genious on capital hill dreamed that one up.

  • Hello there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I really enjoy reading through your articles. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same topics? Thank you!

  • Hey, you used to write great, but the last several posts have been kinda boring… I miss your great writings. Past few posts are just a bit out of track! come on!

  • love the first frame…. i threw out two boxes full in December and just realised last week that i have refilled those boxes plus draws with artwork again.[]

  • / The very heart of your writing whilst sounding reasonable initially, did not really work properly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do well to fill in all those breaks. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I will definitely be impressed.

  • You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation however I find this matter to be really one thing which I believe I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very broad for me. I am taking a look ahead for your next submit, Iˇll try to get the hold of it!

  • per governare il paese per un altro mandato. Ed anche se durante l’intervista dichiara che la Manovra Finanziaria deve essere rivista su certi punti, accusando Tremonti di voler anche questa volta giocare da solo
