Disney’s animated ‘Spider-Man’ series is swinging back for a third season, under the new moniker ‘Maximum Venom’. And to accompany the change come new cast members. Felicia Day joins the series as Mary Jane Watson. And in guest-starring roles are Yvette Nicole Brown as Head Administrator, Sofia Wylie as Ironheart/Riri Williams, and Disney Channel’s ‘ZOMBIES 2’ stars Meg Donnelly, Kylee Russell, and Carla Jeffery as Symbiote Sisters Scream, Scorn, and Mania, respectively. Brown had a small role in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ as some sort of administrator at the military base in the ’70s. is she somehow reprising the same role here?
