Disney XD has just released a featurette on their upcoming animated series, Marvel’s Spider-Man.
The featurette showcases each voice actor giving a little preview of who their character is and what they are like in this interpretation of the Spider-Man universe. You can watch the full clip in the video below:
In the new series, Marvel’s Spider-Man, we will see a fresh take on Spider-Man, as Peter Parker is learning the responsibility that comes along with being a new, super-powered hero in New York City, just as he’s being accepted into Horizon High, a high school for brilliant young scientific minds. He struggles with the duality of his social life at school and hiding his secret identity from everyone including his best friend Harry Osborn, who attends the competing Osborn Academy for geniuses. As Peter embraces his alter-ego and takes on super villains such as Vulture, Lizard, Doctor Octopus and Sandman, he watches his hero lifestyle come between his personal relationships and struggles to keep Harry from landing on the wrong side of the law.
Marvel’s Spider-Man features the voices of Robbie Daymond as Peter Parker as Spider-Man, Nadji Jeter as Miles Morales and Laura Bailey as Gwen Stacy and will premiere Saturday, August 19 at 7am on Disney XD.
7 Animated Marvel Movies That Should Be Made
There are a lot of great Marvel stories that won’t get live-action adaptations. Now, DC dominates the animated movie side of things, but now that Marvel has Disney behind them they should start developing a few direct-to-video projects.
Sony is releasing an animated Spider-Man movie in 2018 featuring Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker, a smart way to introduce the fun character to a larger audience. Some stories just don’t need live-action adaptions, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be turned into animated features. Modern 2D animation is looking better than ever, and I think the Mouse House need to invest a little bit of time into these endeavors.
So here are my top 7 Marvel stories that should be turned into animated movies. I know some of these characters might be owned by studios other than Disney, so Fox and Sony should be paying attention also. Are yours not on the list?
