The wall-crawling, web-slinging animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man will be debuting via a special one-hour episode on Disney XD this coming Saturday, August 19 at 7 am ET/PT, and the upcoming series will feature a special guest: Cameron Boyce, who is known for playing Carlos in Disney’s “Descendants” franchise and Conor on Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything.

In one of the episodes titled “Osborn Academy”, Boyce will be lending his voice to the character named Herman Shultz. Herman is described as a driven young scientist who, along with his best friend Clayton Cloe, is an expert in the creation of wearable technology and the inventor of “gauntlets” that can control vibrations. Longtime comic book fans will recognize the character via his alter ego, Shocker.

“Osborn Academy” will debut on August 26. In the story, Herman is auditioning for the prestigious Osborn Academy, a school famed for being the place for geniuses. The strict competition for a spot in the academy pits Herman against his friend Clayton.

The impressive voice cast for Marvel’s Spider-Man includes the likes of Robbie Daymond (Bread Winners) as Spider-Man, Max Mittleman (One-Punch Man) as Harry Osborn, Nadji Jeter (Jessie) as Miles Morales, Melanie Minichino (Blaze and the Monster Machines) as Anya Corazon, Josh Keaton (Voltron: Legendary Defender) as Norman Osborn, Fred Tatasciore (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) as Max Modell, Laura Bailey (DragonBall Z) as Gwen Stacy, Nancy Linari (The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest) as Aunt May, Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille) as Uncle Ben, Scott Menville (Teen Titans) as Doc Ock, John DiMaggio (Clarence) as The Jackal, Alastair Duncan (The Batman) as Vulture, and Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada — also executive producing the series — as the coffee shop owner Joe.

The Marvel Animation panel at D23 revealed some cools news about the latest caped cartoons headed to Disney XD. The brand new Spidey series, dubbed Marvel’s Spider-Man, got its premier date and voice cast. We also learned that the network has given the go-ahead to season 3 of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and that’s there’s going to a LEGO Guardians TV special.

Just in time to capitalize on the summer blockbuster success of Homecoming, the new Spider-Man series will have a one-hour debut on Disney XD on August 19th at 7AM EST. It’ll also be available on the Disney XD app and video-on-demand bright and early at 12:01AM. The series sees Peter Parker try to juggle being a superhero while going to Horizon High, a high school for brilliant young scientific minds. It’s not an easy task keeping your grades up while you have battle super villains and keep your best friend from becoming one of them.

Marvel’s Spider-Man will star Robbie Daymond as Peter Parker. Max Mittelman plays Harry Osborn. The rest of the cast consists of Nadji Jeter as Miles Morales, Melanie Minichino as Anya Corazon, Fred Tatasciore as Max Modell, Laura Bailey as Gwen Stacy, Nancy Linari as Aunt May, Patton Oswalt as Uncle Ben, Scott Menville as Doc Ock, John DiMaggio as The Jackal, Alastair Duncan as Vulture. Even Marvel’s chief creative officer Joe Quesada, who is also executive producing the series, gets a cameo as the coffee shop owner Joe. You can read more about the production side of the series in our earlier coverage.

Late last month, Marvel began streaming a short to promote the series:

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is coming back with a third season called Mission Breakout! – which just so happens to the name of a recently opened ride at Disney California Adventue. “The third season will find the Guardians gaining fame and fortune, but quickly knocked back on their heels after being framed by the Collector. The Guardians will travel to new universes, stage a massive sting operation inside the Nova Corps, and expose a Secret Invasion years in the making. A little bad and a little good – all in a day’s work,” says the press release. No word yet on when the show will return to Disney XD.

That’s not all the Guardians news. Marvel and LEGO have partnered up to produce LEGO Marvel Super Heroes – Guardians of the Galaxy: The Thanos Threat, a brand new 22-minute special. The release window and distribution platform weren’t shared, but a summary was: “When Thanos, Ronan, Nebula and the Ravagers seek to possess the Build Stone – a powerful and creative relic – the fate of the universe depends on the Guardians of the Galaxy to protect it. The platform and release timing details are forthcoming.”

Marvel Entertainment and Funko have recently joined forces in order to launch a brand new CG animated shorts web series that features Funko’s extremely cute POP! line of vinyl toys. These Marvel Funko shorts are borne from the creative efforts of A Large Corporation (tory and animation) and EP’s Brian Mariotti, Dan Buckley, Cort Lane, Joe Quesada, and Alan Fine.

The first episode of the short series clocks in at 90 seconds and is titled “Spellbound.” The short focuses on Funko Iron Man and Funko Spider-Man teaming up to take on the trickster god, Funko Loki. Armed with a mind-control scepter, Funko Loki proves to be a handful for the duo.

“Telling Marvel stories in the Funko POP! aesthetic is a special kind of magic unlike anything we’ve ever done. These shorts are both hilarious and action-packed – and irresistibly adorable too. Really, I think all audiences will love them,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s SVP of Animation and Family Entertainment.

Two more episodes will be rolling out this month: “Bait N Switch” on Dec. 7, in which Rocket Raccoon breaks into The Collector’s museum to free Groot; and “Chimichangas” on Dec. 14, which sees Deadpool face off against Venom.

If you just can’t get enough of all things Marvel, and if the lack of crossover between the Spider-Man and Avengers movies (for obvious reasons) has left a bitter taste in your mouth, you will be glad to know that Disney XD will at least bring both franchises to your TV screens, albeit not in the same show. Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man vs. the Sinister 6 and Marvel’s Avengers: Ultron will be coming to Disney XD for their fourth and third seasons, respectively.

Season 4 of Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man vs. The Sinister 6 will air on Sunday, February 21 at 9 am EST and will see Peter Parker being in the spotlight after fighting alongside the Avengers. But things go south fast when he discovers that Doctor Octopus, Hydra, and the all new Sinister 6 have teamed up to destroy him and SHIELD. So Spidey creates his own special team of spiders, consisting of Miles Morales, Agent Venom, Iron Spider, and the mysterious new Scarlet Spider.

The 3rd season of Marvel’s Avengers: Ultron Revolution, on the other hand, has Marvel’s premiere superteam reuniting in order to combat the unexpected return of Ultron, along with a whole host of new threats coming from the likes of Baron Zemo, the Masters of Evil, the Inhumans, and Kang the Conqueror.

By now, you’ve most likely heard about the recent incident where a group of hackers managed to compromise Sony’s private data, leading to the release of tons of confidential data. The incident is a little bit outside the scope of Toonbarn (we mostly deal with just cartoons, superheroes, animation, and games) but one leaked information is right up our alley: it seems that Sony has several Spider-Man-related projects in the pipeline and one of them is an animated feature version.

The animated feature was in development with team behind The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, serving as producers. The movie is said to be a comedy and there have been talks between Sony and Disney, which could have lead to Marvel Studios producing a new batch of Spider-Man movies while Sony retains creative control, marketing and distribution. Other discussions include the possibility of the wallcrawler appearing in Marvel’s upcoming adaptation of the Civil War storyline.

Unfortunately, the talks did not go anywhere. Sony is still developing their own slate of Spider-Man features, which includes the Venom and Sinister Six spin-off, along with ones focused on the women in Spider-Man’s life.

With the announcement that Sony will be launching a new movie franchise off of Spider-Man, one that focuses on his on-again/off-again nemesis Venom, one of the chief concerns that fans have is “which one?”

The Venom character, which started out as an alien symbiote suit that Peter Parker brought home from space and eventually found it’s own host after a falling out with Peter (because it tried to take over. You already know the story), found its way in the hands of several owners and spawned other symbiote suits. Eddie Brock is arguably the most popular one, but the other incarnations – including Flash Thompson and Mac Gargan (The Scorpion) are also favored by some people.

In an interview with CBR’s Spin-Off Online, Alex Kurtzman discussed the challenges involved in choosing the right one, though he failed to mention exactly which one they went with:

“I would not say [picking the incarnation of Venom is] an easy choice,” begins Kurtzman. “I would say that there are quite a few things about Venom that are interesting.”

“Venom had several different iterations, and there are several things that are very unique, interesting and specific. And so I think we all want to make sure that we’re making the right choices for a character that’s so beloved.”

“Before last Friday came out, we started kind of roughing out a story,” he continues. “Ed Solomon’s going to be writing it very soon. I can’t tell you too much, but I’m really excited about it.”

Amazing Spider-Man 2 did well in the box office, and we personally enjoyed watching the film. However, it can’t be denied that it has received a lot of criticism due to its rather disjointed narrative, which many consider as being responsible for destroying the flow of the story. During an interview with The Daily Beast, star Andrew Garfield sort of acknowledged and addressed the criticisms, and has pointed to parts of the original script being changed by way too many people:

“I read a lot of the reactions from people and I had to stop because I could feel I was getting away from how I actually felt about it,” says Garfield. “For me, I read the script that Alex [Kurtzman] and Bob [Orci] wrote, and I genuinely loved it.”

“There was this thread running through it. I think what happened was, through the pre-production, production, and post-production, when you have something that works as a whole, and then you start removing portions of it… then the thread is broken.”

“It’s hard to go with the flow of the story. Certain people at the studio had problems with certain parts of it, and ultimately the studio is the final say in those movies because they’re the tentpoles, so you have to answer to those people.”

However, Garfield made a note to clarify that even though he preferred the script in its original incarnation, the experience in making the film is not disappointing:

“I got to work in deep scenes that you don’t usually see in comic book movies… a lot of which was taken out, and which we’d explored more. It’s interesting to do a post-mortem [but] I’m proud of a lot of it and had a good time.”

Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will be joining The Avengers and a ton of Disney’s popular characters in the hit multiplatform action/toy collection game Disney Infinity, via the new Marvel Super Heroes Spider-Man playset. The new playset is scheduled to launch this fall and will include Spidey himself, Nick Fury, Iron Fist, Nova, and Venom as playable characters. Disney Interactive has previously announced Avengers members Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, and Black Widow.

The Disney Infinity: Marvel Heroes playset will come with its own storyline, in which the Green Goblin tries to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D, hiring Mysterio along the way and abducting Venom in the hopes of extracting and cloning symbiotes from his costume. Players will be tasked with fighting the spreading symbiotes and facing Mysterio and the Green Goblin himself in various settings that include the sewers, labs, and skies.

Completing the Marvel Heroes play set game will unlock the S.H.I.E.L.D.’s hover car, the S.H.I.E.L.D. sky cycle, the Daily Bugle building and other assets for use in the Toy Box. You can check out the trailer below for more details:

It seems that Marc Webb doesn’t want to stray from the tried and tested trilogy philosophy, as the director has confirmed that his directorial duties will end with amazing Spider-Man 3, despite the studio admitting that they want to extend the franchise beyond 3 movies.

Webb confirmed his tenure during an interview with The Daily Beast, claiming that the 3rd Amazing Spider-Man film will “close out” his tenure as the franchise’s director, citing that it’s time to find something else to do after that. However, it doesn’t mean Webb will walk away from the web-slinging hero completely, as the director admitted that he wants to stay on board in some capacity:

“I’d like to be involved as a consultant, and I’ve already talked to these guys about it.”

Felicity Jones Black Cat

Despite all the teasers and trailers that have been released for the upcoming sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man, there are still a bunch of things that are kept under wraps, particularly with regard to casting. One of the most pervasive rumors is that Felicity Jones will be playing Felicia Hardy in the film.

Comic book fans will recognize the name as one belonging to a sometimes-ally, sometimes-opponent of Spider-Man’s, the Black Cat. The rumor about the role is still unconfirmed to this date, but Felicity Jones herself has been dropping rumors pointing to it as fact. The most recent one was dropped during an interview with Collider.com, in which she reveals that her character is going to be wearing a costume, stating that she’s been hands-on when it comes to crafting the costume for her character:

“It’s a medium that’s very collaborative,” she said. “Actors and directors work on things together. That’s how I like to work, anyway.”

“I don’t want to be told what to do. I want to share it with someone and work it out together. You know that person better than anyone. That’s my job,” she added.

Sony Co-Chair Hints at Future Spin-Off Films for Spider-Man

With comic book movie adaptations being the flavor of the month (or decade, considering how long it’s been going on), it’s no surprise that Sony already has two sequels to The Amazing Spider-Man in the pipeline. After all, they probably learned their lesson from Fox’s mistake of letting several of their licenses to Marvel properties lapse. However, what’s interesting is that Sony may be going further than mere sequels, as Sony Co-Chair Amy Pascal has recently revealed to investors that a series of spin-off projects may soon be on the horizon.

“We are going to access Marvel’s full world of Spider-Man characters,” said Pascal, “so be on the lookout for new heroes and villains.”

It does seem like a solid plan, as the Spider-Man universe is home to many characters that can carry a movie on their own, the most famous one being Spidey’s on-again,off-again nemesis and ally, the Anti-hero Venom.

the daily bugle tease

There are currently two commonly used types of viral campaign strategy for movies on the net right now: the first one insults your intelligence, while the second one effectively piques your curiosity and extends the narrative of the film beyond the medium. We’re glad that Sony’s approach with Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the second one.

Amazing Spider-Man 2’s most recent piece of viral marketing is a faux news article on the Daily Bugle website that reads as follows:

“Despite the assault on Oscorp Tower two weeks ago and the revelation that disgruntled Oscorp employee, Dr. Curt Connors, was responsible for the attack, Oscorp’s stock has climbed four points.

“Oscorp spokesman Douglas Menken provided some details from the meeting, including that the construction on the prototype alternative energy power plant, complete with hydroelectric tower, is on schedule for completion within the next year.

“Other highlights included a preview of a flight harness for the military and significant advancements in robotics by the head of the engineering division, Spencer Smythe.”

It’s not a clear-cut spoiler, but some items mentioned in the piece can be an allusion to Vulture, who wears a flight harness, or Hydro-Man, who is capable of manipulating water. The mention of Spencer Smythe is also notable, as Smythe in the comics was the inventor of a type of robots specifically designed to take down Spider-Man, dubbed the “Spider Slayers.”

Not that we’re expecting these new villains to appear in the upcoming film, as it’s already got enough villain for a single full length film. But it’s still a good tease at what the next few films might have in store for Peter Parker.

Man of Action Studios' Joe Casey, Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau interviewed at San Diego Comic-Con

ToonBarn was at San Diego Comic-Con on July 21 and stopped by the Man of Action Studios Booth to talk to the creators of Ben 10. These talented writers and animators are also Executive Producers for two shows at Marvel: Avengers Assemble and Ultimate Spider-Man.

Joe Kelly, one of the foursome that makes up the founding members of Man of Action Studios, was not present for this interview, but we may get a chance to talk to him at New York Comic Con. In the following video, we do get to hear from Steven T. Seagle, Joe Casey, and Duncan Rouleau.

Each of the guys from Man of Action Studios had their own comic books for sale at SDCC, so we talked a little about each of their individual projects, while also hearing the latest about 2 great animated series, Ultimate Spider-Man and Avengers Assemble. You’re getting your first taste of Guardians of the Galaxy in Ultimate Spider-Man, which will also be getting it’s own live-action movie real soon. Speaking of live-action movies, make sure you watch this interview all the way to the end to see who else is getting the live-action treatment after being one of your favorite cartoons for so long.

Iconic comic book creator Stan Lee is pretty much a staple in Marvel’s big screen properties, doing cameos in some of the biggest movie adaptation of the comic book companies’ titles, and in some movies that are only slightly related to the medium (such as a number of Kevin Smith’s films). This August, Stan “The Man” Lee will be reprising yet another of his Marvel roles as Stan the Janitor returns in a new episode of “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man.”

The episode, titled “Stan By Me,” is scheduled to air this August 4 at 11:30 AM to 12 noon ET/PT as part of Disney XD’s Marvel Universe block. The episode finds Spidey depending on Mary Jane, Harry, and the secret abilities of Stan the Janitor in order to track down The Lizard due to loss of contact with his super hero teammates and Principal Coulson. This may be Spidey’s last chance to get The Lizard, who is now aiming to rid himself of the last of his humanity, using a city-wide power outage as a cover.

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!”
