Ultimate Spider-Man TV Show in the Works
Ok so it isn’t a classic game or even a game at all, but if there is one thing many gamers have in common is their love for comic books and comic book characters and what character is more classic than Spider-man?
Word on the net is that a new Spiderman cartoon based on the Ultimate Spider-Man comic is coming to Disney XD in fall 2011. This pretty much means the current series, Spectacular Spider-Man is done for.
The good news is the new series will be heavily influenced by the Brian Michael Bendis comic and since the animation rights for Spider-Man have reverted back to Marvel you will be seeing other Marvel superheroes show up on the series.
Here is the official statement from Marvel Animation:
Marvel Animation has green-lit an all-new Spider-Man animated series titled Ultimate Spider-Man. Ultimate Spider-Man will tell a coming of age story, where hapless Peter Parker evolves from a naive teen hotshot to a true hero who comes to terms with his origins and abilities. Along the way, he will have to navigate challenging relationships with mentors and super-colleagues, and emerge with a better understanding of his parents’ legacy and his own destiny. Disney XD will be the primary worldwide television platform for the all-new series which launches in Fall 2011.
