Marvel has released a series of teasers that, as usual, left people scratching their heads. With a countdown of webbed numbers, the only thing that was clear was it would likely involved Spider-Man. Today, Marvel has revealed what the mystery is.
In September, filmmaker J. J. Abrams (Star Wars, Star Trek, Super 8) and his son Henry Abrams will co-write a new Spider-Man series.
The five-issue limited series will feature art by the amazing Sara Pichelli and covers by the spectacular Olivier Coipel. Dave Stewart will provide colors for the interiors.
J.J. Abrams revealed details of the story in an interview with the NY Times:
“The story shows Peter Parker in a way you haven’t seen him before.”
“Spider-Man is one of those super heroes 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.”
