New ‘Spider-Man’ Animated Series Sets Summer Premiere in First Teaser
We still don’t have the clearest picture of what Marvel’s new animated Spider-Man series will look like, though it appears we’re webs-up this summer. The first official teaser has arrived, and to quote the man himself, “this just got awesome.”
IGN released a first official teaser for the new Marvel’s Spider-Man series, ahead of the promo’s official debut during the final Ultimate Spider-Man episodes. For now, it’s mainly just a flashy logo and some webs, but we’ll surely find out more before summer 2017.
Rumored to include Spider-Gwen and Miles Morales, the new series is headed up by story editor Kevin Shinick and supervising director Philip Pignotti, previously of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble. Says Disney XD boss Marc Buhaj said of the series:
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. [The new series is] 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.
Ultimate Spider-Man will end with its fourth season with a two part “Graduation Day” finale, but when might Disney XD reveal more official details on Marvel’s Spider-Man?
