Ultimate Spider-Man spins a web for Marvel

Ultimate Spider-Man spins a web for Marvel

What happens you bring Marvel Comics together with the Man of Action team? That is, the folks behind the Wolverine, Iron Man, Ben 10, Generator Rex, and Ultimate Alien? Spidey Sense tingling!! That’s right, the result is the upcoming Ultimate Spider-man cartoon, bringing the Disney superhero to Disney XD later next year. Just as Marvel readies the relaunch of Peter Parker on the big screen in the summer of 2012, super villains like the Green Goblin and Venom will be trying to take over the animated world, as well. As we learned from a Spider-Man sneak peek showing during C2E2 2011, the new toon takes place in the early days of Spiderman’s run, where the Web Slinger is still getting used to his powers, turning to supporting characters like Nick Fury to become The Ultimate Spider-Man.

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark turns dark

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark turns dark

Maybe it was the Green Goblin. Maybe it was due to the dozens of accidents. Heck, maybe the cast is just afraid of being devoured whole by partially untrained dragons. The true answers may never surface, but the fact remains: Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is closing. At least for now. During this past weekend’s show, the cast took a final bow as curtains closed, letting producers, including U2’s Bono and The Edge, and a new creative team have some time to overhaul and fix the show. Everyone involved hopes to have previews ready to go May 12th, with a relaunch on June 14th at the Foxwoods Theater. Technically, the show has still never opened, airing only previews since November of 2010. Maybe one day, Peter Parker. Maybe one day.
