Spidey Battles Scorpion In The First Footage From The New Spider-Man Cartoon

Spider-Man's about to get his third cinematic reboot, so naturally it's time he got a new cartoon to go with it. And while this first look definitely borrows some things from the new movie, it otherwise looks to be set in its own Spider-Verse.

Simply dubbed Spider-Man this time around (not an Ultimate, Spectacular, or even Amazing in sight), the new animated series is yet another return to Peter Parker's origins, chronicling the earliest days of the webhead's crimefighting, web-slinging career.

That's presumably why this snippet sees Peter in the hilariously low-fi homemade costume in the vein of the one in Spider-Man: Homecoming, if it's still early on in this Spidey's heroic journey. But, thanks to a poster revealed by TV Guide today, we know he's going to get his proper Spider-suit soon enough:

Spider-Man is set to air on Disney XD this winter.


    Wow it seems they may have manged to make it worse than ultimate spiderman, impressive. OK maybe a bit harsh judging it that much off 1 minute, but holy moly that background animation, totally A++ effort and the jokes/quips were bad.

    Oh swell, another Spider-Man in high school animation when clearly modern day Spider-Man wasn't even in high school for more than 20 issues in the comics.

    It seems that Marvel really wants fans to forget that Spider-Man has grown up, and place Peter Parker right back in high school. Much like Dick Grayson, I feel like Marvel have no idea how to handle Peter Parker/Spider-Man anymore.

    So like, the dudes and dudettes and that made Spectacular Spiderman, where are they?
