The hit Marvel animated series ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ will be returning for its second season with a special hour-long primetime premiere special on Monday, January 21 (7 to 8 PM ET/PT) on Disney XD. The two-part premiere episode will herald the debuts of two of Spider-Man’s most iconic villains, the Lizard and Electro. While Spidey and his team – Power Man, Nova, White Tiger, and Iron Fist – battle the two menacing super villains, an even more sinister, deadlier force is secretly planning their demise. The New episodes of Ultimate Spider-Man will premiere on Sundays at 11 am ET/PT via the Marvel Universe programming block on Disney XD.
