SPIDER-MAN Goes Back to Basics in This First Look at a New Cartoon Series

SPIDER-MAN Goes Back to Basics in This First Look at a New Cartoon Series

On July 7th, fans finally get to see a Spider-Man adventure set in the same universe as the other MCU characters with the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Starring Tom Holland as the wall-crawler, this version of Spidey will show us how he learns to navigate being a superhero in a world already full of them.

Mirroring this young version of Spidey will be Disney XD, which will debut its new cartoon, aptly named Spider-Man, sometime this summer. Marvel’s YouTube page has given us a first look at the new series.

Unlike its predecessor, Ultimate Spider-Man, this series looks to go back to the VERY early days of the web-slinger, as this clip shows him in a homemade suit, which is almost a match for the one we will see in Homecoming. Also, it doesn’t look like he has three teams of young heroes to lead into battle, either. We get a glimpse here of one of his classic villains, the Scorpion, as he and Spidey battle it out in New York City.

The look and tone of this new series shows that Marvel is making their animated properties (the others being Avengers Assemble and Guardians of the Galaxy) part of one continuity that is on par with the MCU. A lot of younger Marvel fans were probably introduced to these characters via the movies, so I think it is a smart move to keep the looks similar when it comes to the cartoons.

So what do you think? Will you be checking out the new Spider-Man this summer? Are there any Marvel characters that you feel deserve their own cartoon series as well? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
