Ultimate Spider-Man may be coming to an end very soon (thankfully) but Disney XD is already giving fans a brief glimpse into the hero’s future with a teaser for the new series, Marvel’s Spider-Man, coming this summer.
This new Marvel’s Spider-Man “tells the story of an unsure (but courageous) teen who has to figure out how to be a Super Hero from the very beginning.” Senior Vice President of Marvel Animation and Family Entertainment elaborated on the show’s [very short] synopsis in a statement:
“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.”
For now, the teaser is mainly just the logo and some webs, and is set to debut during summer 2017, which means it’s just in time to coincide with the new live-action reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, which hits theaters on July 7.
Check out the quick promo below:
Marvel hit it big in the animation department with Ultimate Spider-Man, which is now their longest running animated series, despite some fan complaints about the series bend toward a more youthful audience. The fourth and final season was titled Ultimate Spider-Man Vs. the Sinister 6 and ended on January 7th, with a one-hour episode, “Graduation Day”.
Disney XD also released new teaser videos and promo spots for another one of its upcoming shows, a TV adaptation of Big Hero 6.
