Entertainment giant Marvel announced on Thursday, June 20, 2019, that a new Spider-Man project is underway. Apparently, Star Wars director J.J. Abrams is creating a new Spider-Man comic-book mini-series along with his 20-year-old son and co-writer Henry Abrams, colorist Dave Stewart, and illustrator Sara Pichelli, who’s credited for imagining Miles Morales.
In the announcement video, which shows the Abrams duo, the elder Abrams teased that a new villain will debut in the upcoming comics. But neither Abrams gave any description of the villain outside of saying that he (or she) will be called Cadaverous.
