“We’ve been secretly nurturing ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ for years now, so we are thrilled to finally announce it. The simple title reflects a back-to-basics approach – the story of an ordinary teen, Peter Parker, who suddenly finds himself with strange new powers and overwhelming responsibility."
- Cort Lane, Senior VP Marvel Animation and Family Entertainment
The panel closed out with an extended first look clip of the show, which focuses on Peter Parker’s debut as Spider-Man, just weeks after having been bitten by a radioactive spider. Peter Parker clad in a pre-Spider-Man costume ski-mask, hoodie and sweatpants as he attempts to take on a bunch of thieves stealing vibranium. Parker stumbles as he gets used to using his new powers and web-slinging tech as we experience the events with spurts of ‘spidey-sense time’ in which Parker’s thoughts narrate his thinking process as he struggles to decide his next move. In the end Parker triumphs — at least until he encounters the Vulture.
Philip Pignotti (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) will be supervising director of Marvel’s Spider-Man, with Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken) serving as story editor. Consulting producers are Dan Slott (Spider-Man: Big Time, The Superior Spider-Man), Kevin Burke and Chris “Doc” Wyatt (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man).
