J.J. Abrams & Henry Abrams announce new Spider-Man comic
J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) and his son, Henry, have announced that they have teamed up with artist Sara Pichelli for a Spider-Man comic book miniseries featuring a deadly new villain, Cadaverous. You can check out the announcement video now in the player below, as well as the new Spider-Man comic cover in the gallery!
The father and son duo spoke with The New York Times about the project, which will introduce the new villain Cadaverous, who will cause problems for Spider-Man, his alter-ego Peter Parker, and his beloved Mary Jane Watson.
The Abramses are writing the Marvel Entertainment miniseries, which will be drawn by Sara Pichelli and colored by Dave Stewart. The duo didn’t want to spoil too many details, but the elder Abrams promises that the story “shows Peter Parker in a way you haven’t seen him before.”
Henry Abrams added: “Spider-Man is one of those superheroes where the more you read about him, for me at least, the less I understand him. He’s so anti-everything that you’d expect from a hero. I think Stan Lee said something about putting the human in superhuman. That is what we’re trying to do.”
The five-part Spider-Man comic series is scheduled to arrive this September.
