Disney swings toward Ultimate Spider-Man


Disney swings toward Ultimate Spider-Man

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can. …including starting up a new cartoon on Disney XD in the fall of 2011. The new toon, dubbed Ultimate Spider-Man, tells the story of a teenage Peter Parker dealing with his new abilities, high school life, fellow Marvel Super heroes, and New York’s super villain community. We first learned of the toon a few months back, but now we get more info on the producers behind the series: Brian Michael Bendis, writer of the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book, Paul Dini, the man behind Batman: the Animated Series, and Man of Action, the team behind Cartoon Network’s Ben 10 and Generator Rex.

“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.” – President of Marvel Animation Eric S. Rollman

“We’re also taking a much different approach visually with the way we show how Spider-Man moves and works and acts within this new world. It’s going to be a complete change as far as the visualization of what it’s like to be Spider-Man,” – producer and writer Paul Dini
