At New York Comic Con, Disney XD and Marvel Animation and Family Entertainment announced that their new show, Marvel’s Spider-Man will premiere in 2017. Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man, which has been going for 4 seasons will come to a conclusion in January 2017 with the two-part finale “Graduation Day” as Spider-Man will face off against Doctor Octopus and the Superior Sinister Six to save New York City. Upon the conclusion of the show, Disney XD will go “back to basics” with the story of Peter Parker as he discovers his new powers and learns to become the titular hero.
“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.” – Marc Buhaj, Senior vice president, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD
“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,” – Marc Buhaj, Senior vice president, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD
