The new Marvel’s Spider-Man animated series could be called Spider-Man and his Super-Smart Friends. The new series has Peter Parker in a school that appears to be full of science geniuses — a place that Reed Richards would probably have loved. And as we can see from this behind-the-scenes video, the kids do more than just cheer on the Wall-Crawler, they seem to have the smarts to help him out.
The new featurette talks with the cast about the new series and how each character is more than just a potential hostage. They’re all smart, brave kids with a lot to offer. And Peter is going to need all the help he can get with villains like the Green Goblin, The Jackal, the Shocker, The Scorpion, Doctor Octopus, and the Vulture around.
The synopsis reads:
“An insecure but courageous and intelligent teen named Peter Parker, a new student of Midtown 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.”
The new series features Robbie Daymond as Peter Parker / Spider-Man, Nadji Jeter as Miles Morales, Laura Bailey as Gwen Stacy, Max Mittelman as Harry Osborn and Patton Oswalt as Uncle Ben.
Marvel’s Spider-Man debuts Saturday, August 19th on Disney XD.
