New Spider-Man Animated Series Kicks Off in March

The wall-crawler is back in his Saturday morning time slot.

A few months ago Marvel announced that Spider-Man was once again going to be returning to the animated world under the title The Spectacular Spider-Man. The show, which features an artistic style similar to that of the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and the Cartoon Network's new Tranformers animated series, will hit The CW in just under a month.

The show looks like it could be awesome. Spider-Man animation needs to get back to where it was in the mid nineties and, while that may be a ambitious goal, I think this new show could do it. The Spectacular Spider-Man is all about Peter getting into the swing of being a superhero. He's young, inexperienced, and has a lot to learn; think Ultimate Spider-Man. Who wouldn't love an animated Ultimate Spider-Man?



The show will supposedly follow a similar timeline to that in the comics but condensed to introduce key characters and plot points at a quicker pace. Hopefully it isn't rushed but still manages to cover enough ground every week. The first episode features the introduction of The Vulture, Peter's first super-villain test in the show.

Hopefully The Spectacular Spider-Man is a success. I've been dying to see a faithful animated Spider-Man on TV for ages and hopefully this can do the trick. Well, at least until Fox and Marvel find a way to bring the 1994 Spider-Man Animated Series out on DVD.

The Spectacular Spider-Man premieres on Saturday, March 8th on Kids' WB! on the CW at 10:00am with two back-to-back 30 minute episodes.

Check out the trailer below.

Cheers.
