New information came out from D23 during the Marvel Animation panel this past weekend about the upcoming new animated Spider-man show on Disney XD. Marvel’s chief creative officer, Joe Quesada, and Cort Lane, Senior Vice President, Animation and Family Entertainment, announced that Marvel’s Spider-man will have a one hour premier on Saturday, August 19, from 7:00-8:00 a.m (EDT.) It will also be released the same day on the Disney XD app and VOD at 12:01 a.m. (EDT.)
According to Deadline.com
Marvel’s Spider-Man will see Peter Parker learning the responsibility that comes along with being a new, superpowered hero in New York City, just as he’s being accepted into Horizon High, a high school for brilliant young scientific minds. He struggles with the duality of his social life at school and hiding his secret identity from everyone including his best friend Harry Osborn, who attends the competing Osborn Academy for geniuses. As Peter embraces his alter-ego and takes on super villains such as Vulture, Lizard, Doctor Octopus and Sandman, he watches his hero lifestyle come between his personal relationships and struggles to keep Harry from landing on the wrong side of the law.
