Spectacular Spider-Man Cartoon Starts Second Season
I didn’t realize Spidey has a new cartoon series running on Disney XD. The second season premieres on Monday, June 22, at 7 PM with two episodes. After that, episodes run at 7:30 on Mondays.
It’s set in high school, where the character works particularly well. Here are the show descriptions:
In the season premiere, “Blueprints”, Peter wants to talk to Gwen about their first kiss, but before he gets the chance, Spider-Man has a run-in with the sorcerer Mysterio. Following in the additional brand-new episode, “Destructive Testing”, Peter wrestles with his feelings for both Gwen and Liz, but in the meantime, Kraven the Hunter has arrived to make Spider-Man his prey.
Sounds like they’re using some classic villains. Later in the season, they’re promising Venom, Rhino, Sandman, Doctor Octopus, and the Green Goblin. Interesting that they chose Gwen as girlfriend when the movies and Marvel comics aimed at the young audience both used Mary Jane. Here’s a trailer for the season premiere:
