The first posters for Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man: The Animated Movie have arrived, and the theme for both of them appears to be “New York graffiti”.
Collider has photos of the posters, one of which you can see in the embedded tweet below. Both posters, which debuted at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, show a spray painted Spider-Man insignia and a circle, either as part of the logo, or possibly signifying a web.

Aside from the graffiti look, the second poster may reveal the film’s title: Spider-Man: The Animated Movie. It’s perhaps not the flashiest title in the world, but if it turns out to be the real deal, it can’t be argued that it’s not accurate.
Beyond that, the posters don’t really offer any information about the project that we don’t already know. As CBR has previously reported, the film will center around Miles Morales–Marvel’s current Spider-Man– instead of Peter Parker. Miles will be voiced by Dope and The Get Down actor Shameik Moore and Liev Schreiber will voice the yet-to-be-announced villain. The LEGO Movie‘s Chris Miller is handling the script, and will also act as an executive producer with his creative partner Phil Lord. Rise of the Guardians‘ Peter Ramsey and The Little Prince‘s Bob Persichetti will direct.
“It’s not going to feel like every other Spider-Man movie you’ve seen,” Miller said last summer. “It will stand on its own as a unique film-going experience.” The film has also been teased as having a “throwback” vibe by Scrheiber.
Miles Morales was created in 2011 by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli as part of Marvel’s Ultimate line of comics. Miles assumed the identity of Spider-Man after the death of that universe’s Peter Parker. Following the end of Marvel’s Ultimate imprint in 2015, Miles was integrated into Marvel’s main universe and is currently a part of the Champions team lineup.
The film is scheduled to arrive in theaters December 14, 2018.
