Kids' WB! has provided CBR News with an image from The Spectacular Spider-Man, the first to be seen from an episiode of the new television series set to debut March 8 on The CW network. The series will launch with back-to-back episodes Survival of the Fittest and Interactions.
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 waswritten 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 Hopps.
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.
