New Spectacular Spider-Man Series

Post by Once Upon A Dream » January 29th, 2008, 2:10 pm

Marvel are making a new Spider-Man series after Spider-Man 3,the animation kinda reminds of The Batman and the new anime wannabe Fantastic Four series.
Here's a few things i found:
A poster:

A trailer (also appeard in Spider-Man:Friend Or Foe game:

A clip:

Character desgins (Gwen Stacey with Glasses?):

A few Hasbro action figures:

(The symbiote Spidey one reminds me of a Spider-Man 3 symboite Spidey figure i have,also Spidey,unmasked Spidey and Venom reminds me of some Spidey 3 figures).
And a Vulture picture:

Well,it looks nice (thought i don't like Spidey's voice) better then that bad CGI series MTV had,that series also tried to be too much releated to the films.

I'm eager to see how this new Spider-Man series handles Venom.

What I've heard is that this series is very generally based on the "Ultimate Spider-Man" comics. I love USM so I think it'd be awesome if the show had a similar writing style.

Love that poster!

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to the new series too. Debuts in March, so it's not that long of a wait!

I think that was the point, to some extant. As it was a tie-in.

Man, I was a fan of the early 90's Spidy, but the MTV version was the best incarnation, and personal favorite overall. I just loved the comic book look, mixed with CGI. Great show, and one that ended way too soon. Thank goodness for the DVD! :)

Agree about Venom,Josh,he's ugly (Eddie Brock is even worse).
eddievalient-well,i only played the Ultimate Spider-Man game but still it's nice :D so it will be good if this series will be similar.

Yeah,it is great :D.
I"m really exited,too :D,March isn't too long (and i also that someone will upload the first episode on Youtube.
About the MTV series-are you sure? becouse this series isn't really like the films (for exmaple Dr. Conors died in that series,and in the film he's alive),maybe it's inspired (they did took some things from the films) but still,there's something that i didn't liked (for exmaple in the last episode in the last season he just decided to stop from a silly reason and threw his cotume to the river).
That 90's series make people think that this is how Spidey came from,they don't know he's actually a comics character (and much different character).

Yeah, this should be a great series. It's producer is Greg Weisman, who was the co-creator and co-producer of Gargoyles, which is IMO one of the best animated series ever. The continuity and character development in that show (and the continuing comic book written by Greg) are incredible.

I'm hoping for similar awesomeness for The Spectacular Spider-Man.

As I understand it, Sam Raimi is heavily involved too, since this will focus on the film universe.

Sony took the theme song down, but it's okay cause the show airs in another week or so anyway. We won't have to wait long.

Yay :D.
There's a clip in Sony's website showing Electro,he looks nothing like a Marvel character but i think he looks like Ultimate Electro (did you noticed they're taking a lot of things from Ultimate?).
