PULSE News Talks with Greg Weisman on "Spectacular Spider-Man"
Comicon.com’s PULSE News has interviewed Greg Weisman about his work on The Spectacular Spider-Man, which will debut on the Disney XD network in March. Among other topics, Weisman discusses how he landed the job as Supervising Producer/Story Editor/Writer/Voice Actor for the show, why he thinks Peter Parker is such a sympathetic character, where he was drawing his primary inspiration for the first two seasons of the show, and which Marvel characters we will get to see in the upcoming season of the show.
Weisman also discusses the potential for a third season of The Spectacular Spider-Man, stating that characters like the Scorpion and the Hobgoblin are very tentatively slated for a proposed third season, but stating openly that, “We don’t have a pick-up for that,” adding that the current economic climate has hit the animation industry very hard: “‘s honestly pretty darn grim. Lots of lay-offs. Lots of empty desks, offices, cubicles at many a tv animation studio. Less production taking place then I’ve ever seen in 22 years in the animation business… including after 9/11.”
Weisman also briefly discusses some of his other projects in progress at the moment, including his Gargoyles comic books and that he will be writing “at least one episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold,” and also has several other projects in the works that are too early to talk about.
