Marvel’s secret Spider-Man countdown leads to J.J. Abrams comic series

We don’t normally cover comic book news on Binge Sequence, but because so many people thought the announcement would be movie related it seems appropriate. The Spidey countdown began with a webbed number 4 that led hopeful, or delusional, fans to believe that Marvel was somehow going to be releasing the fourth installment of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man series just smack-dab in the middle of MCU continuity.

As predicted, the announcement turned out to be a countdown to some Spider-Man comic book related news. The reveal was that legendary filmmaker J.J. Abrams and his son Henry Abrams have written a new Spider-Man comic book series that will be releasing under Marvel Comics this September:

The comic series will feature art from comic book artist Sara Pichelli. Pichelli was part of the art department that worked on the award-winning movie Spider-Man: Into Spider-Verse. The book will also introduce a brand new Marvel villain named Cadaverous.

Many fans have responded negatively to this due to it being unrelated to a Tobey Maguire Spider-Man revival. Despite that, J.J. Abrams is a super talented writer whose pen has helmed Lost, Star Wars and Star Trek. There is no doubt the limited series will be an entertaining one.
