This comes ahead of the debut of a brand new Spider-Man animated series which replaced the Ultimate Spider-Man TV show and featured both Peter Parker and a variety of different heroes who have held the heroic mantle, including the popular Miles Morales version.
In Spider-Man Origin, Peter is bitten by a radioactive spider and he uses the five steps of the scientific method to diagnose what has happened to him. Taking advantage of his new powers, Peter decides to earn some money as an underground wrestler. When his selfishness prevents him from saving the life of his Uncle Ben, Peter learns the true meaning of his now deceased uncle’s mantra. With great power comes great responsibility!
Spider-Man: Homecoming is scoring rave reviews and looks set to be a massive hit for Marvel and Sony, so an event like this feels perfectly timed for younger fans of the hero.
That 15-minute special for the reboot should also be good fun, though with it swinging into theaters less than one week from now, it hopefully won’t reveal too many major spoilers!
The Spider-Man takeover will be broadcast on Disney XD +1 from July 3rd-30th in the UK.
