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.
The series stars Robbie Daymond as Spider-Man/Peter Parker, Scott Menville as Doctor Octopus, Nadji Jeter as Miles Morales, Melanie Minichino as Anya Corazon, Laura Bailey as Gwen Stacy, Max Mittelman as Harry Osborn, Fred Tatasciore as Max Modell, Nancy Linari as Aunt May, Patton Oswalt as Uncle Ben, Alastair Duncan as Vulture and Bob Joles as J. Jonah Jameson.
“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, followed up, saying:
“This is the most epic conflict in the history of Marvel Animation. 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.”
Plus, new Season 2 episodes of Marvel’s Spider-Man 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.
Produced by Marvel Animation, the series’ award-winning creative team includes executive producers Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Dan Buckley, Cort Lane and Eric Radomski.
