    Couldn't Sony produce Spider-Man DTV's if they really wanted to? They are technically movies.

    Maybe. But even if they could they clearly don't want to make animated Spider-Man movies. If they did want to it makes no business sense for them to do so for a series that's been off the air for 5 years. I wish things were different and that we could just go back to the series from where it was left off. But that's not going to happen.

    If you haven't checked it out yet, the first episode of a new podcast called Spectacular Radio has launched. There will be monthly instalments of the series, one for each episode of The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Greg Weisman will be appearing in all of them. You can listen to it here. It's also available now on iTunes.

    Thanks for the heads up. Looks like I've got another podcast to listen to.

    It's nice to see in more detail how Greg had a set plan for what the series would eventually cover, and how they would be covered :).

    Though I wonder if it would even have been possible for Spectacular to have gotten all those movies?

    Well, Futurama and Batman: TAS got a few, so I don't see why Spectacular couldn't

    Yeah, while those plans seem outrageous these days, 65-episode shows and occasional DTVs were the norm in the early to middle 00's and even further than that.

    If this show hadn't been cancelled, I say it would have really given Batman TAS a run for it's money. It would have been the first to have a proper adaptation of "The Night Gwen Stacy Died"

    And it still pisses me off how Roderick Kingsley finally makes an animated appearance and the show gets cancelled before he becomes Hobgoblin.

    In a way i feel it would have been difficult of adapting "The Night Gwen Stacy Died" even if was on DTV they should explained on the series of the events of the DTV unless they find a suitable way to kill Gwen without going too far, they already used the Green Goblin being dead and we know Norman's going to Europe.

    Aside of the Hobgoblin was also expecting the appearance of the Scorpion and if it was possible the Jackal, i believe with another DTV would have done the Clone Saga.

    The disc art is pretty trashy, though... stock images quickly thrown onto stock backgrounds. I still like the slipcover a lot, though.

    Well the disc art gives me Spider-Man and his symbiote suit. So I'm happy. I pre-ordered mine so it should be arriving today. Can't wait to marathon through this show again.

    Same cover as the first season and the same features? So it's basically just the first season release with the second season tacked onto it. Would have like better, but I'm certainly not complaining, so glad to be getting this!

    The material of the cover is neat but would it have killed them to commission Cheeks to design the cover and/or the disc art?

    Well, what is on the discs is what counts.

    I have been pretty pleased watching the DVDs upscaled on my PS3 but the fact that it comes with a coupon for up to 10 dollars off a ticket to TASM2 may have convinced me to save money on going to see a movie I'm "iffy" on to support a TV series I love. I'm rather strapped for cash but I may be able to buy this if I find it for a reasonable price.

    So apparently there were plans for a Spectacular Spider-Man soundtrack, but it was scrapped when the show was cancelled. Weisman said he'd contact the DMP about it... maybe LaLaLand would be interested in starting the project up again (if it's even possible at this point).

    I hope this will still happen eventually. "Opening Night", "Shear Strength", "Blueprints", "Nature vs. Nurture", "Intervention" and "Survival of the Fittest" all had great scores that I would like to own.

    Yesterday I was thinking about what they might have done with Black Cat had the show continued, and I realised that if they were to introduce Scarlet Spider/Ben Reilly (say in season 4), perhaps she would have had a relationship with him as a way of furthering the uneasiness between herself and Spidey. After all, they based the Felicia and Walter Hardy twist in the show on the character of Jessica Carradine in the comics, who had a relationship with Ben Reilly...

    Hey everyone. I hope it's not in bad taste to bring back this thread to admire the 10th anniversary to the best Spider-Man TV series ever made.


    HAPPY 10 YEARS ANNIVERSARY SPECTACULAR

    I'd sincerely like to thank everyone who worked on it


    Josh Keaton is the only voice actor to voice the hero, the best friend, and the archenemy. This accomplishment deserves mention.

    I remember watching the show first in 2009 then in 2014. I liked this show it had a good teenage sensation in it and for the most part I think that It was pretty fluid in its story telling. There were some good stories in there, and the animation was okay it could have been better with the designs but yeah the colors and backgrounds were still good nonetheless.
