Borrowing a tactic from the comic book industry, Marvel will be relaunching its Spider-Man cartoon with a new number one episode this Summer. Marvel’s Spider-Man will debut sometime in the coming months on Disney XD, replacing the previous Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon and featuring a 15-year-old Peter Parker and probably a retelling of his origin story. The show’s description, from IMDb:
An insecure but courageous and intelligent teen named Peter Parker, a new student of Horizon High, is bitten by a radioactive spider and given powers. He becomes a hero named Spider-Man after the death of his uncle and he must adapt to this new way of life.
TV Guide has a first look at the show, which is actually a decent length clip of Spider-Man battling The Scorpion. We’ve embedded it below, so give it a watch, and then post in the comments about how it will never live up to Spectacular Spider-Man or the 90s animated series.
