    Yeah, I totally agree about the similarity to WB's Green Lantern marketing blitz when the 2011 movie came out.

    A return to form within different platforms like a new console Spider-Man game, new Spider-Man comics (including a Free Comic Book Day feature), new animated series and new movie all point to an exciting year for Spider-Man (assuming the game comes out this year).

    Also, can I add how funny this response was from Wacker's Tumblr?

    Well the "back to the basic" thing is somewhat debatable. It's back to the basics in that he's no longer leading a SHIELD team or a group of Spider-Men but we're also getting two other Spider-characters and they've hinted it's possible other recent characters like Silk may show up. And of course flat out saying we will see Spider-Island in some form.

    I have no idea if Vulture actually looks like his movie counterpart but there is no way him being the first villain announced is a coincidence, and the stuff about him attending "Horizon High School" or whatever sounds suspiciously similar to him attending a science high school in Homecoming.

    I've got two questions for now: first of all, has Stephen Wacker ever lied on his Tumblr? And obviously there should be romance in a back to basics Spider-Man show, but you think there will be any?

    Didn't Wacker once state or heavily imply that there were plans for future seasons of Ultimate Spider-Man or that it wouldn't end with season 4? That's the closest to an outright lie or fudging of the truth that I can think of out of him.

    I'll be genuinely surprised if there's any kind of romance on this show. The Marvel cartoons have been downplaying that element across the board for a while now, and Wacker has been emphasizing "friendship" as a major theme in this series.

    Gwen will probably be just "one of the boys" so it isn't an issue, and we have no idea about what other female characters might show up and if we'll see Mary Jane at all...

    I'm pleased to hear Wacker doesn't usually lie, but what do you mean by "Gwen being one of the boys", though?

    Just that she'll probably be close enough to Peter and Miles, and not that outwardly feminine, that they won't really think of her as a girl or love interest so much as just a friend and fellow hero.

    If the show really is a back-to-basics Spidey show, they should probably have some form of romance. I'm honestly hoping for it, but it's too early to know. It may be a rumor from what I've heard, but Liz Allen could be Spidey's girlfriend in Homecoming so the show could probably do the same if M.J.'s not Spidey's girlfriend.

    How come you think Wacker would lie? If anything, I think some of his answers regarding Ultimate Spider-Man's future were vague to not reveal it was ending and a new show was on the way.

    I miss Black Cat, I miss Gansters stories arcs in Marvel Animations and I like the idea of a company performing questionable experiments with governments and crime lords.

    Update:

    i believe this are the new design of the characters in the show.

    what do you guys think?

    I guess it's possible. I wouldn't be surprised if these guys appeared on the new show.

    Interestingly, browsing through the Hasbro site I also found what looks like the same Doc Ock and Sanman toys with "USM vs the Sinister Six" packaging (here and here)

    Interesting that's unfortunate cause those designs look good for the new show.

    Yeah, I think I remember that Rhino toy popping up a while back and leading to assumptions we would be getting a new Rhino in season 4 of USM :sweat:.

    Apparently this video features some details and production art for the new show. It's in Spanish so I'm not sure what they're saying.

    It's good art though, and I wouldn't mind that kind of art style for a Spider-Man cartoon (so long as there was a good budget to back it up) :).

    Though it's easy to tell it's not for the new show because the one glimpse of Spidey we have indicates we're not getting the MCU suit.

    She makes very fluid/lively animations. This liveliness/aliveness and added effects would be amazing. Judging from her style, I can imagine this series with a very light hearted feel and good looking action scenes or just good looking scenes with just movement in general. It seems she draws Peter Parker the same every time. This could be how he looks, maybe.

    That art is great. I'd be so on board for something like that and it would be such a breath of fresh air.

    Hopefully, I can say the same when we get a look at what they did for this show. I'm just reminded of really liking the style of the original GOTG test footage and then being a bit disappointed when the show looked pretty much like what they were already doing.

    Really? The Guardians test footage didn't look too different from Flash animation in my eyes. Some of the animation in the shorts looked sharper to me though.

    Anyway, I kind of hope the new Spider-Man show has artwork similarly well designed to the fan art posted above.

    Not the animation (which I think they said was all done by one in-house animator) but the stylised look and designs of the surroundings and everything else. It didn't feel like the house style to me, which the main series does, and I just thought it was interesting. The shorts felt closer to the house style but almost through an anime lens.

    Thinking of shorts, it wouldn't be too shabby if they had something like those to get people prepped for this show.

    I really liked when EMH did their Micro-Series and Guardians did those shorts, so I wouldn't mind Marvel Animation doing more with that for their shows :).

    Not really sure how it would work for this show, other then maybe introducing the supporting cast and Peter's relationship with them prior to the premier? Maybe showcase some of the villains Spidey will be facing? Or maybe even cover their version of the origin?
