Every revival brings with it one inevitable question: whether revisiting opens the door to a full-scale continuation. The same could be asked of Adult Swim’s coming Samurai Jack Season 5, the first in over a decade, though creator Genndy Tartakovsky definitively confirms that the March revival will bring an end to Jack’s journey.

The Hollywood Reporter has a new article about a bunch of animated content coming in the years ahead from Sony Pictures. The biggest news of the bunch is the director on the animated Spider-Man movie that was originally announced as a Phil Lord and Chris Miller joint last year. Lord wrote the movie’s screenplay, without Miller apparently, but both are still aboard the project as producers. Replacing them as director(s) is Bob Persichetti, an animator who was the head of story on Puss in Boots and The Little Prince. As for the rumor that this Spider-Man would focus on Miles Morales, the half-black and half Hispanic teenager who replaced Peter Parker in the series Ultimate Spider-Man, THR says “the company was mum on rumors.” The animated Spider-Man is on course for a December 21, 2018 release.

Fixman has come aboard to draft a new screenplay for the film.
