The Afro-Latino teenager is responsible for the 'Spider-Verse,' which introduces the idea that there can be more than one Spider-Man.
Into the Spider-Verse is slated for release on 14th December.
The news follows on from an emotional week for Marvel Comics, following on from the death of iconic comic book creator Stan Lee.
"Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created," said Bob Iger, the chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company.
"A superhero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain and to connect.
"The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart."
