    I'd totally be up for Moon Girl in animation and I like that new characters such as Moon Girl, Kamala Khan, and Riri Williams are finding audience members that they relate to.

    Amadeus Cho, America Chavez, Kate Bishop, etc. really have growing fan-bases from the comics so I hope other media pick up on this besides the mobile and Lego games (plus Amadeus was in Ultimate Spider-Man, Lego Avengers Reassembled, and Avengers Confidential).

    I definitely think this show will pull from Dan Slott's run and the classic Spider-Man comics. I'm interested to see what they use (like the Big Time suit, perhaps?).

    I hope Spider-Island doesn't repeat Ultimate Spider-Man's tendency to turn most of Peter Parker's supporting characters into Spider heroes. If Peter is friends with Gwen and Miles, I'd be fine with them getting powers (if temporarily perhaps), but I'd prefer MJ (if she's in the show) and Harry to stay the same.

    I hope the Daily Bugle has a solid role in this show including the staff and Peter's relation to them.

    Occasional team-ups sounds fine by me and out of the list of Spider-Island characters, Jackal makes the most sense to me. Of course, I expect MJ in the show as well.

    I like Moon Girl, so I'd be interested to see her show up in animation, though not necessarily in this show specifically. I kind of feel like they might go overboard in portraying her as the "smartest person in the world" and make Peter look bad :sweat:.

    Well, good to know we can expect some more news soon :).

    I love how that one question just reiterates comments Wacker's already made and he just runs with it :p.

    I'm really happy to hear that the Bugle will be in the new cartoon. I was really worried they'd just completely ignore it. Hopefully it's more focal here then it was in USM and Peter actually has some connection to it. And hopefully we get to see all the Bugle gang in sizeable roles as well :anime:.

    I'm really going to be interested to see just how much of a "solo" series this ends up being with the addition of Miles, Gwen, and the obvious inclusion of team-ups. USM, to me, felt like "a team-up show with solo stories" so I would hope this series can differentiate itself from that o_O.

    And I guess it's possible that, even once Miles and Gwen get their powers, they won't be attached to the hip to Spidey or be direct sidekicks to him so it can still accommodate more solo stories focused on Peter ;).

    I can't help but wish the MJ part was accurate, if only because I really hope she's on the show :ack:.

    So it sounds like the Symbiote (and Venom by extension) wil lhave a sizeable role in this series :evil:.

    Of course one has to one wonder why they just won't make a Young Avengers /Avengers Academy.

    I'm not sure those characters from either series is that popular outside of the comics themselves. I don't often hear people talk about them, and with the popularity of the Avengers, I'm sure they want to focus on the main team of heroes instead.

    The closest thing was the young S.H.I.E.L.D. trainees/S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy in Ultimate Spider-Man. I suppose this new Spider-Man show could have a version of them but it would probably be like S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy with different young heroes and Spider-Man on the team instead of actual members like Finesse and Hazmat or Wiccan and Speed.

    I do kind of wonder how a proper Young Avengers/New Warriors cartoon would do, even if it's unlikely Marvel Animation would push for that given it would be very different from the movies and may not feature any "A-listers."

    Of course they could always make a cartoon based on the mobile game

    Based on the low sales and cancellation of their comic series, they're not even that popular with most (NOT ALL) comic fans. That all being said, just because most comic fans don't find them popular and won't buy their comics, doesn't mean that they wouldn't/couldn't become popular with non comic book readers and have a very successful TV show or movie based off of them.

    I would expect a new X Men cartoon before Young Avengers imo.

    Ordinarily I'd wholeheartedly agree with you, but with the movie rights situation being what it is, you can never know for sure :sweat:.

    I understand that, but I don't think the Young Avengers are likely to get their own show any time soon.

    Meanwhile Marvel is making efforts to work with Fox on Legion and the Gifted show. They also announced a wave of the X-Men comics in April as part of their X-Men ResurreXion line to literally resurrect the brand.

    While the animation folk might not have anything immediately in the works, a new X-Men show is looking more likely.

    Anyway, this is a Spider-Man thread so let's redirect the conversation.

    I'm optimistic for this show and everything confirmed so far looks good, but with Wacker and Loeb's involvement does anyone else feel this way? One of his answers mentioned Marsha Griffin guiding the show and since she's supervising producer I'm hoping it works like Josh Fine guided Avengers: EMH.

    I know I mentioned this earlier, but I didn't get enough answers for it.
