If you were amazed by the spectacular first season of Marvel’s Spider-Man animated series on Disney XD then you’ll be happy to hear that a second season has been ordered! Once again, we’ll have a full slew of Spidey friends who involved with the return of 15-year old Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and Gwen Stacey as the three wall-crawlers battle crime in this take on the Marvel Universe. Not only that, but the studio has released a full synopsis of what direction we can expect the second season to head into!
The first season saw a Freshmen Parker and Spidey navigating the high school halls, so it should follow that the second season will be giving us his Sophomore year. Here are some of the enemies and other plot points we can expect moving forward:
The second season of “Marvel’s Spider-Man” follows Peter Parker in his sophomore year as a more experienced Super Hero and a more confident student at what was once the intimidating Horizon High School. Picking up where season one left off – in an epic showdown against Doc Ock, the Sinister Five, and Hobgoblin – season two will offer much higher stakes for both Peter and his heroic alter-ego, Spider-Man. He’ll also learn how to navigate new responsibilities like working at his local newspaper The Daily Bugle while enduring Doc Ock’s series of obstacles in the villain’s attempt to get rid of Spider-Man once and for all. The action-packed season will continue to touch on Spidey’s relatable themes, including friendship, loyalty, and heroism while staying true to its signature sense of comedy. The premiere date for the series will be announced at a later date.
Sadly, we don’t know when the show will be back, but it sounds as if there will be a deeper dive into both Parker’s social life as well as his superhero antics.
Of the upcoming season, Disney XD senior vice president, programming, and general manager Marc Buhaj stated:
“We’re proud of our partnership with Marvel Animation and look forward to premiering more adventure storytelling, through the lens of some of the world’s most prominent Super Heroes, for years to come.”
When it comes to Spidey, everyone wants years of solid content as he is Marvel’s most iconic character. With his recent move into Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, he has even overcome some of the barriers which held him back while over at Sony and his popularity is at an all-time high!
On Marvel’s end of things, Marvel Entertainment president Dan Buckley‘s Spidey Sense is tingling with excitement:
“We are tremendously proud of our animated series on Disney XD. We look forward to continuing our relationship with them including fresh new seasons of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout, Marvel’s Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest, and Marvel’s Spider-Man which will air through 2019. As we continue to produce in the animation space, we are constantly looking to expand our footprint with projects such as the highly-anticipated Marvel Rising, and a second season of Marvel Super Hero Adventures. Additionally, we are pleased with the continual growth of Marvel HQ on YouTube Kids, which features library favorites and premiere episodes of Marvel Super Hero Adventures and the Marvel Funko animated shorts, as well as upcoming original content.”
It sounds like things are only on an upswing for Peter and knowing that Parker Luck that means he’ll have even greater obstacles popping up in his life in the second season.
