Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon got off to a rocky start after Disney cancelled the critically acclaimed and vastly popular Sony produced Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon.
In spite of it’s rocky start Ultimate Spider-Man had found it’s footing and has put together quite an enjoyable show. It’s more kid focus than Spectacular was (that was more like a Pixar movie and was geared to entertain both kids and adults) but Spider-Man fans young and old can enjoy it.
Last season, like it’s comic counterpart, Ultimate Spider-Man went into the Spiderverse, and is now going back, this time with 100% more (meaning introducing to the cartoon) Spider-Gwen! I’m sure many of you are excited about this, but not nearly as excited as my cohort Nelson, who, as soon as he reads this post is probably going to do a ton of back flips.
The first part of “Return to the Spider-Verse” airs this Saturday, August 27th, on Disney XD.
