The merger of Disney and Marvel will give fans a new animated take on everyone’s favorite wall-crawler in 2011.
SciFi Squad reports that “Ultimate Spider-Man” is headed to Disney XD. The new animated series will take the title from the popular reboot comic book series but probably will not follow any of the story arcs created by the comic book. The series, penned by Brian Michael Bendis, has won fan and critical praise for its update and different take on the Spider-Man mythology.
“Ultimate Spider-Man will be a unique journey exploring our favorite web-slinger as he teams up with other fan favorite Marvel Super Heroes in never before seen stories with a new life filled with great challenges, new friends, intense action and character growth,” said Eric S. Rollman, the president of Marvel Animation.
Unfortunately, this could mean that we won’t see any more of the wonderful “Spectacular Spider-Man” which was airing its second season on Disney XD.
