And The Secret Identity Of Our Hero In The UNTITLED ANIMATED SPIDER-MAN MOVIE Is...

Sony Pictures Animation unveiled its animation slate between now and 2018, insisting on its "commitment to increase overall output while continuing to offer its distinctive mix of family films". One such endeavor is the upcoming Unititled Animated Spider-Man Movie which was announced back in 2015 long before we would learn more on the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, which already has a trailer hitting high notes among fans.

For this, we turn to the specific installation of alternate character Miles Morales, currently seeing his evolution in the Marvel publication as of 2011 following the death of Peter Parker. Gaining powers similar to that of Parker's after crossing paths with a missing lab spider, the young Black/Hispanic teen eventually succumbs to his newfound abilities with the goal of becoming the hero he's destined to be, ultimately earning himself a list of villains in the process.

A live-action adaptation may be far off as it is, though the most impressive effort I've seen in short form can be viewed as of 2015 from filmmaker Ivan Kander called Spider-Man Lives: A Miles Morales Story and starring Demetrius Stephens. Whether or not this is even in the cards from Sony and Marvel remains to be seen, but one thing is certain, and that the animated film is heading for a December 21, 2018 release with Morales front and center.
From Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, the geniuses behind THE LEGO MOVIE, comes an animated SPIDER-MAN feature starring Miles Morales. 
The feature is directed by Bob Persichetti (head of story on PUSS IN BOOTS and THE LITTLE PRINCE) and Peter Ramsey (RISE OF THE GUARDIANS).  The film is written by Phil Lord.  Avi Arad (IRON MAN, SPIDER-MAN), Amy Pascal (SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING), Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (Untitled HAN SOLO Movie) are executive producing; Christina Steinberg (TROLLHUNTERS) is producing.
Director Jon Watt's Spider-Man: Homecoming arrives on July 7 starring Tom Holland and Donald Glover with Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei and Michael Keaton. Stay tuned!
