In "Survival of the Fittest" (10:00 a.m. ET/PT), summer is over for
Peter Parker and school’s ready to start — both literally (it’s his
junior year of high school), and in the real world of crime-fighting
— as Spider-Man faces his first real challenge (The Enforcers) and
his first real super-villain (Vulture). Peter Parker is voiced by
actor/musician Josh Keaton, and Robert Englund ("A Nightmare on Elm
Street") voices Vulture. Victor Cook directed the script, which was
written by Greg Weisman.
In "Interactions" (10:30 a.m. ET/PT), Peter Parker and Spider-Man both
try to make connections. Nerdy Pete attempts to tutor the popular Liz
Allan, while Spidey reaches out to stop a new menace: Electro. Alanna
Ubach ("Legally Blonde," "Waiting") and popular video game and
voiceover specialist Crispin Freeman provide the voices of Liz Allan
and Electro, respectively. Troy Adomitis directed the script by Kevin
Greg Weisman is supervising producer of The Spectacular Spider-Man,
and Victor Cook is producer/supervising director. The series is
produced by Culver Entertainment, a Sony Pictures Television Company.
