Yet another cinematic outing for the webbed one, due out in 2018
Not content with rebooting the live action Spider-Man franchise twice in recent years, Sony have announced that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, responsible for the phenomenally successful Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street (plus its sequel), are writing and producing an animated outing for the iconic web-slinger.
And while the new film isn't due until 2018, Spidey fans will be spoiled with live action appearances in the meantime.
Spider-Man has long been caught up in a web of complex rights issues, but a recent deal between Sony and Marvel means Spidey will join in the action in next year's Captain America: Civil War. The character is also coming to cinemas in 2017 for the first instalment of yet another origin story set in his high school days, to be helmed by Cabin in the Woods' Drew Goddard.
The animated Spider-Man film is due out on Fri 20 Jul, 2018
Written by: Christopher Markus , Stephen McFeely, Mark Millar (comic book)
Cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo, Daniel Brühl, William Hurt

When world leaders demand that the Avengers operate under UN supervision, the team splits. If you haven't seen previous instalments it will make no sense, but if you have, all the plot points bear bittersweet fruit, in a brilliant combination of hectic action and one liners with intimate, heartbreaking moments.
Cast: Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr.
UK release: 5 July 2017
The first collaboration between Sony and Marvel brings Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tom Holland is the third actor to play the web-slinger, delivering a performance that gives the character a new edge, helped along by Jon Watts' fine directing. A humorous and action-packed addition to the Spider-Man canon.
