The new Ultimate Spider-Man series is set to swing in to Disney XD beginning Sunday April 1st!
No foolin’ either as the new Spidey toon will be part of Disney’s new “Marvel Universe Block,” which also includes The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, new animated short-form series, live-action interstitials and more.
“Marvel Universe block is an incredible animated ride filled with fantastic action and adventure,” said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television, to Marvel.com. “The spectacular team of writers and animators capture stories with all the dynamic fun you can imagine. Disney XD is the perfect place for families and Marvel fans of all ages to come together every Sunday.”
Acting as the keystone of the Marvel Universe block, “Ultimate Spider-Man” features a teenage Peter Parker juggling the typical growing pains of high-school with the not-so-typical growing pains of being a super hero. As the newest member of Nick Fury’s S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, Peter finds himself on a team with four other teenage super heroes.
