‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ An All-New Animated Series, Set to Debut on Disney XD in 2017

New Series on the Action here Announced at New York's Comic Con

Disney XD announced at Comic Con in New York upcoming “Marvel’s Spider-Man,” a new animated series that tells the story of an unsure but courageous teen who has to figure out how to be a super hero from the very beginning.

“Spider-Man is the biggest action hero in the world. He is an iconic character whose duality makes him both relatable and aspirational for the Disney XD audience,” said Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD. “We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Marvel in this new original series that offers a fresh take on a beloved classic that will engage both new and existing Spidey fans with its compelling drama, exciting action and the signature sense of comedy.”

“We’ve been secretly nurturing ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ for years now, so we are thrilled to finally announce it. The simple title reflects a back-to-basics approach – the story of an ordinary teen, Peter Parker, who suddenly finds himself with strange new powers and overwhelming responsibility. And thanks to story editor Kevin Shinick (‘Robot Chicken,’ ‘Mad’) and supervising director Philip Pignotti (‘Marvel’s Avengers Assemble’), it’s just filled with heart and humor,” added Cort Lane, senior vice president, Marvel Animation and Family Entertainment.

Produced by Marvel Animation, “Marvel’s Spider-Man” will premiere on an undisclosed date in 2017. The creative team includes executive producers Alan Fine (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man”), Dan Buckley (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” “Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.”), Joe Quesada (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”) and Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”); co-executive producers Stan Lee (“Spider-Man”), Eric Radomski (“Spawn,” “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”), Cort Lane (“Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man”) and Stephen Wacker (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”); supervising producers Kevin Shinick (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” “Robot Chicken”) and Marsha Griffin (“Transformers Prime,” “The Life and Times of Juniper Lee”); consulting producers Dan Slott (“Spider-Man: Big Time,” “The Superior Spider-Man”), Kevin Burke and Chris “Doc” Wyatt (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man”); and supervising director Philip Pignotti (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man”).
