Spider-Man: The Animated Series


John Semper Jr., the guy behind the 90’s Spider-Man: The Animated Series, wanted everyone to know that there a Captain America animated series that almost made it as well. We all loved the Spider-Man and X-Men cartoons from the 90’s, there was some really good story telling in those series. I would have liked to see this Captain America series set in World War II. Heck, I’d like to see that series now., but I guess I’ll just have to settle for the promo video that Saban put together to sell the show. (more…)

Get pumped, webheads, as the  Ultimate Spider-Man animated series is set to be released on April 1st, 2012 on Disney XD. In anticipation for the latest animated incarnation, Marvel has released the first film clip from the series over at Entertainment Weekly

Ultimate Spider-Man, will follow the adventures of Peter Parker as a superpowered high schooler. The series’ creative team includes nerd approved names like Brian Michael Bendis, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Paul Dini. (Drake Bell, of Drake & Josh fame, will play Spidey.) Check out an exclusive clip from the series, featuring an appearance by Nick Fury.

I wanna like this show, but it just looks so lame. A fun a and playful tone just doesn’t work for me. I’m sorry but nothing can beat the 90’s Spider-man cartoon.
