- Disney XD has ordered a third season of the Emmy Award-nominated animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man for a spring 2020 premiere.
- The web-slinging series follows Peter Parker, who is learning to navigate life as the teenage superhero Spider-Man.
- In the third season, titled Marvel’s Spider-Man: Maximum Venom, Spider-Man is pushed to his breaking point when Venom summons an earth-shattering threat from its home planet.
- In the meantime, new season two episodes will debut in September on Disney XD and DisneyNOW, beginning with a five-part Superior Spider-Man story arc.
- In the new storyline, Doctor Octopus, who has taken over Spider-Man’s body, intends to use his new spider powers to further his evil agenda.
What they’re saying:
- Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, Programming and general manager, Disney XD: “We are excited to have Spider-Man and Venom leading this brand-new chapter. These two characters are fan favorites and the Marvel Animation team has delivered a smart, action-packed season for a new generation. We’re grateful for the opportunity to further expand the world of ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ with Venom and continue fresh, heroic storytelling with this third season order.”
- Cort Lane, senior vice president, Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment: “This is the most epic conflict in the history of Marvel Animation,” said. “We planted the seeds in two seasons of ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ and three seasons of ‘Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy,’ but you don’t need to have watched them to be blown away by this colossal confrontation. While a ton of guest heroes will be on hand, Peter Parker’s special link to Venom makes him the only hero who can tip the scales to save humanity.”
