Peter Parker is out to let everyone know what he’s capable of in a new promo for the animated Marvel’s Spider-Man. Of course, it would help if the citizens of New York City actually got his name right.
The promo for the upcoming Disney XD series depicts Spider-Man — in his original, homemade costume — racing across rooftops, ready to stop bad guys and save the day. When his narration gets to the part where he announces his code name, we get everything from “Bug Boy” to “Webhead.” As Marvel’s Spider-Man takes place early in his crime-fighting career, the wall-crawler will have to work to become a household name.
Although there’s been no confirmation by either Marvel Television or Disney XD, merchandise recently surfaced suggesting that Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen will have prominent roles on the series; Venom is also depicted. Both Miles Morales and Spider-Woman (aka Spider-Gwen) appeared on Ultimate Spider-Man, which premiered in 2012 as part of Disney XD’s Marvel Universe programming block.
No casting announcements have been made for Marvel’s Spider-Man. Philip Pignotti (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) is the supervising director, with Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken) serving as story editor. Consulting producers are Dan Slott (Spider-Man: Big Time, The Superior Spider-Man), Kevin Burke and Chris “Doc” Wyatt (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man).
