Sony Pictures took to Twitter to drop one huge bombshell of information about their upcoming animated Spider-Man film: it will focus on Miles Morales and not Peter Parker.
In the Ultimate Marvel Universe, Miles Morales was a teen who became the next Spider-Man after the death of Peter Parker at the hands of the Green Goblin. He instantly became a huge hit with fans, so it's great that he's finally getting his moment in the spotlight. It's also refreshing to know that we're getting another major superhero film which doesn't feature yet another caucasian in the lead role. It arrives on December 21, 2018.
Whether Parker will still appear in the film in a supporting capacity remains to be seen, although he will be the star of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which arrives on July 7.
