    Side Notes:
    Vulture is one of the first villains
    The show will follow Spider-Man from the very beginning
    The Symbiote will start with a minor role but with room, the role will grow
    Friendship is a heavy focus especially with Peter and Harry
    Most of the stories will be from Dan Slott's run
    Peter willl go to Horizon High and will be mentored by Max Modell
    The animation is very fluid
    The art style is like a mix of Spectacular Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man, Anime and Voltron-Legendary Defender, the characters are unshaded but the backgrounds are.
    Spider-Man will start in a homemade suit
    Characters, old and new will appear but some will have spins

    Totally agree. If the story telling is even close to the level of EMH or Spectacular, then it will take away from the sting of losing out on an Ultimate Spider-Man Season 5.

    I think it would be kinda neat if this upcoming Spider-Man cartoon co-existed in the same continuity as Big Hero 6, since they're going with more "fluid" and "animated" look for this show. Maybe as a smaller, secondary Marvel Animated Universe. :p

    Yeah, I also brought up the possibility of this show and Big Hero 6 possibly crossing over at some point down the line. Something about the few character designs we have seen so far just makes it seem feasible. We'll see if it actually happens, but it's a pretty nice thought. But I won't be disappointed if it doesn't play out like this, either.

    They can start by giving Spiderman a break so they can stop reusing the same storylines over and over.

    Come to think of it, it would be kind of cool to have a second (or third if you count most of the 90s shows) animated universe. It's not like the current one has to go away or anything.

    How cool would it be if the Avengers appeared or are referenced in the Big Hero 6 show? :)

    If you give Spider-Man a break, then he wouldn't be Spider-Man.

    Frontier, the fan making that comment wasn't necessarily referring to you. Now some people may not remember what was happening five years ago, but bloggers were even reporting fake news about Ultimate Spider-Man and outright making up news about that show and Hulk and the Agents of SMASH and spreading misinformation.

    I'm curious to see who they get to cast/voice direct for this series. Colette Sunderman handled USM and is the casting and voice director for Assemble, but they also have Lisa Schaffer for Guardians of the Galaxy :).

    Both would be solid choices who've delivered some strong work and casting on multiple productions, but I hope whoever they pick brings their A-game as far as casting and voice direction for this cartoon, and gives us a memorable and iconic cast of characters and talent on par with The Spectacular Spider-Man :cool:.

    I'm really eager to see the clip, but also would love to know the voice cast.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Jaime Simone was the voice director for this series. He's to Marvel Animation like what Collette Sunderman and Andrea Romano are to Warner Brothers. Plus, he did voice direct Spider Man Unlimited in the late 1990s, and voice directed every Marvel animated movie.

    Back to the topic at hand, given that Spidey shows usually cast someone in their 20s- early 30s to play him, I could see someone like Sean Marquette or Max Mittleman playing him. If not, then maybe someone like Eric Bauza or Yuri Lowenthal.

    I'd love for Jaime Simone to be the voice director for this show! He's delivered some of the strongest casting in a Marvel cartoon :D.

    Jaime Simone was pretty great. It was funny to me, back when I started paying attention to the names behind certain jobs, and I'd confuse Simone with Thomason, who was working on Spectacular Spider-Man. Didn't Jaime Simone work on the Marvel Anime series? I feel as though that was the last thing I remembered him working on, probably because Marvel started doing the stunt castings as well which sometimes took a little getting used to.

    It looks as though he's still been in the mix. I see him credited for Frost Fight, Where Monsters Dwell, Lego Marvel, Avengers Confidential and Agents of SMASH, so he still does some good work for Marvel.

    Do you have a source for this date? I couldn't find anything online about May 4th and I kind of doubt the show would start so soon without any real promotion.
