Marvel’s Comic Con slate included the announcement that Disney XD has ordered a third season for their critically acclaimed animated series Ultimate Spider-Man, which focuses on the adventures of the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler and four other teen heroes who have joined S.H.I.E.L.D.’s exclusive superhero training program.
The 3rd season of Ultimate Spider-Man is said to feature Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Hulk as Spidey has been asked to become an Avenger. This is fortunate for Spider-Man, as he’s going to face new deadlier villains and will need all the help he can get.
David Levine, VP and general manager of Disney XD worldwide said, “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man has struck a chord with our audience, boys and girls alike, who are transported weekly to another world where they dare to be heroes. We are excited to deliver another season of Spidey’s thrilling feats and more of Marvel Universe to fans everywhere.”
“This season kicks off with our biggest adventure yet as Ultimate Spider-Man joins Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk from Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “We’re making the Marvel Universe even more awesome with the introductions of Cloak & Dagger, Amadeus Cho, Ka-Zar and the animated debut of Agent Venom!”
