Our favorite web-slinger has a brand new animated series on the way.
Marvel’s Spider-Man will premiere next year on Disney XD, bringing fans back to his early days of being both a teenager and a superhero.
Marc Buhaj, senior vice president of programming and general manager for Disney XD announced:
“Spider-Man is the biggest action hero in the world. He is an iconic character whose duality makes him both relatable and aspirational for the Disney XD audience. He promises “a fresh take on a beloved classic that will engage both new and existing Spidey fans with its compelling drama, exciting action and the signature sense of comedy.”
With Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man (involving a team-up Nick Fury and SHIELD) coming to an end around January 2017, fans will have a younger, more inexperienced Peter Parker series to look forward to.
The new series will focus on Peter Parker learning how to come into his own superpowers while facing the pressures of being a normal teen. Headed up by Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken) and supervising director Philip Pignotti (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), Marvel’s Spider-Man will have a back to basics approach.
Cort Lane, senior vice president of Marvel Animation and Family Entertainment added, “The simple title reflects a back-to-basics approach, it’s just filled with heart and humor.”
2017 is going to be a big year for the young Peter Parker with the upcoming movie Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland and now the new animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man.
