J.J. Abrams is taking a break from Star Wars IX to spend time with his son in the coolest way possible.

 

 

Comicbook.com reports that Marvel’s latest teasers were never pointing to a continuation of Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man trilogy, but they were instead alluding to a video countdown announcement for the comic that J.J. Abrams and his son, Henry Abrams, will be releasing in September.

 

 

The comic will be released as a limited-series with art by Sara Pichelli and will introduce Spider-Man’s newest villain, Cadaverous, to his extensive rogues gallery. The project is in good hands given that Pichelli has plenty of experience with drawing Spider-Man stories after co-creating the popular Miles-Morales character… and J.J. Abrams being J.J. Abrams.

Marvel Editor Nick Lowe apparently even reached out to the elder Abrams ten years ago about writing Spider-Man, according to Polygon. However, it wasn’t until recently, while collaborating with Henry, that the Abrams’ project went into full swing:

 

A year or so ago, I started talking about it with Henry and it sort of happened organically. And that has been the joy of this. Even though I’ve been talking to Nick for a long time, weirdly, this feels like it just sort of evolved from the conversations of Henry and I, having ideas that got us excited and Nick being open to the collaboration.

Judging by the look of Cadaverous on Olivier Coipel’s beautiful cover, J.J. Abrams is still very much in Star Wars mode. Cadaverous looks like Marvel’s version of a Sith Lord or Knight of Ren. That’s as good of a new Spider-Man villain as you can ask for, and if Abrams would be so inclined to one day adapt his comic for the MCU, that would be a welcome endeavor.
