Though still currently unnamed, Sony Pictures’ animated Spider-Man film has been generating buzz since it’s intial annoucement at CinemaCon last year. It was then annouced that it would focus on the story of Miles Morales, who made his first appearence in the Marvel Comics Ultimate Fallout #4 back in August of 2011 and has appeared on the animated series Ultimate Spider-Man, where he was voiced by both Donald Glover and Ogie Banks. Like his predecessor Peter Parker, Morales is a proud New Yorker with a knack for academia, especially science. He also gains his powers from an accidential spider bite, like Parker. However there is a large difference between the two: Miles is black and hispanic with an African-American father and a Puerto Rican mother.
The orginal movie premire date was December 21st, 2018 and it has now been confirmed that its release has been moved up…to December 14th, 2018.
While that understandably is not as soon as fans would like and it’s only earlier by a week, it is still sooner. Plus, this means that they’re ahead of schedule for the film, which opens up the possiblity for an even earlier release to be announced in the futre.
