See the trailer for the upcoming Ultimate Spider-man animated series

03.16.2012

Being produced by different studios, it may remain a dream to ever see Andrew Garfield spin a web alongside THE AVENGERS. But, that is not an issue in animation format!

Marvel Animation has released the trailer for their upcoming Disney XD series ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN. The show differs from past cartoon versions of the friendly neighborhood webslinger in that this version is not an origin story. In fact, the series will begin after Peter Parker has been Spider-man for a full year and receives an offer to join a superhero team.

The official website states "Watch as Nick Fury offers Spider-Man the biggest opportunity of his life: to join S.H.I.E.L.D., take on evil villains, and learn what it takes to become the ULTIMATE Spider-Man. Get a fresh look at Spidey’s action-packed adventures, new Spidey Tech, and special guest stars to excite fans and bring everyone’s favorite Wallcrawler to the small screen like never before!"

The animation style looks to be in the same vein as the Avengers cartoon that will air right alongside it. The show definitely has a light-hearted feel.  It is also will put Spider-man in charge of his own super squad of heroes.  His teammates will include Nova, White Tiger, Iron Fist, and Power Man.  Adrian Pasdar (HEROES) is set to appear as Iron Man and J.K. Simmons will reprise his role as J. Jonah Jameson from the Sam Raimi trilogy of films.

Both the second season of THE AVENGERS: EARTH'S MIGHTIEST HEROES and the first season of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN premiere April 1 on Disney XD.

Extra Tidbit: I could really go for that Kirsten Dunst rain scene right about now.

What the hell – so hard trying to be different from the previous incarnations of the animated version of Spider-man, they decide to make Spider-man Buffy the Vampire Slayer, complete with the resources of the Watchers' Council at his disposal. For years, I have bemoaned the reasons as to why Iron Man or Spider-man action figures had helicopters, sports cars or motorbikes but that wasn't because I wanted these characters to have one in the movies or cartoon series. If I wanted Spider-man to
What the hell – so hard trying to be different from the previous incarnations of the animated version of Spider-man, they decide to make Spider-man Buffy the Vampire Slayer, complete with the resources of the Watchers' Council at his disposal. For years, I have bemoaned the reasons as to why Iron Man or Spider-man action figures had helicopters, sports cars or motorbikes but that wasn't because I wanted these characters to have one in the movies or cartoon series. If I wanted Spider-man to have an armoured suit, I'd watch Iron-Man and as much as I like the teen Iron Man adventures, I'd rather watch Spider-man, with Tony Stark being an adult (I mean how brainy can a teenager be???). Seriously, I don't mind change but when I really enjoyed the MTV Spider-Man series (all about those intense fights and that brilliant series end) and loved the Spectacular Spider-man, why the need to cancel them...to make way for this nonsense?

This is a joke, right? I mean, this looks like Teen Titans. Why, o why, did they bother chucking the Spectacular Spider-Man? A show that had quality writing AND animation. This is nauseating to watch.

I generally like most things Spider-Man. I enjoyed the last run of Ultimate Spider-Man comics very much. The new run doesn't interest me and this cartoon looks bad. Marvel is just all over the place on quality.

If it's as good as

The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, then I'll enjoy this one. Yeah, the guy's voice is annoying but I'll get used to it.

No Thanks

I was planning on not watching this anyway since it is the reason they cancelled the AWESOME Spectacular Spider-man cartoon, the fact that it looks like crap just makes it easier.

The guys who did this are Man of Action Studios. They do Ben 10 and Generator Rex for Cartoon Network. Talked to the head of the company (and the co-creator of Ben 10) at Image Expo a few weekends ago, and he seemed genuinely excited about how the project turned out.

Spidey's voice is annoying. Maybe it would grow on you idk. The animation looks great however. I might check this out. But if your looking for some nostalgia rebooted check out Transformers Prime, its in its 2nd season and it is by far the best transformers toon since G1.
