“Marvel’s Spider-Man” Animated Series to Premiere on Disney XD


“Marvel’s Spider-Man” is the new animated series that will be aired on Disney XD in the next year. Senior vice president, Marvel Animation, and Family Entertainment Cort Lane made the official announcement at Comic-Con in New York. The series will follow an insecure, but an audacious teen who will try to find the way how to be a superhero. Marvel Television produced the series.

Senior vice president, Programming and General Manager of Disney XD, Marc Buhaj said:”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. We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Marvel in this new original series that offers 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.”

Furthermore, Cort Lane declared:”We’ve been secretly nurturing ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ for years now, so we are thrilled to finally announce it. The simple title reflects a back-to-basics approach – the story of an ordinary teen, Peter Parker, who suddenly finds himself with strange new powers and overwhelming responsibility. And thanks to story editor Kevin Shinick (‘Robot Chicken,’ ‘Mad’) and supervising director Philip Pignotti (‘Marvel’s Avengers Assemble’), it’s just filled with heart and humor.”


The executive producers are Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Jeph Loeb and Dan Buckley. The three of them were executive producers in “Marvel’s Avengers” and Jeph Loeb was an executive producer in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Stan Lee, Cort Lane, Stephan Wacker and Eric Radomski are co-executive producers whereas the supervising producers of the series are Marsha Griffin and Kevin Shinick. Supervising Director is Philip Pignotti and consulting producers are Chris Wyatt, Kevin Burke, and Dan Slott.

“Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man” will round off in January next year with an episode called “Graduation Day” that will consist of two parts. In this episode, Superior Sinister Six and Doctor Octopus will be stopped from murdering every New York City hero. The series is successful and it is among network’s top 5 animated series in targeted boy audience.
