Earlier in the week Marvel Comics took to social media to post a series of teasers for a forthcoming Spider-Man project. The teasers began with the image of the number four in the shape of a spider web.
The image made many believe the project being teased was Spider-Man 4 – the unmade Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire Spidey sequel. That was until a similar image appeared on social media the next day, this time depicting the number 3.
The number 2 followed.
Then the number 1.
Yep, the teasers were a countdown. But a countdown to what?
Well, today all has been revealed.
J. J. Abrams is co-writing a Spider-Man story.
Working with his son, Henry, Abrams will be providing the story for a Spidey mini-series. The five-issue story will introduce a new villain called Cadaverous.
Sara Pichelli is providing the artwork. The new story kicks off in September.
And now you know.
