A picture tease the other day led to speculation that a comic adaptation of Sam Raimi’s unused “Spider-Man 4” script was in the works over at Marvel Comics, speculation quickly shot down when it was revealed the picture was part of a countdown to an announcement today.
That announcement came today and is unexpected. Marvel Comics is teaming with filmmaker J.J. Abrams, his son Henry, artist Sara Pichelli and colorist Dave Stewart for a new “Spider-Man” comic mini-series – one featuring a deadly new villain named Cadaverous.
The Abrams-penned five-issue series hits stores in September. The announcement comes on the heels of stories this week about the “Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker” director who is about to close a reported $500 million partnership deal with WarnerMedia for future projects.
