There have been at least 2 attempts to make a Spider-man cartoon since the Raimi movies, but neither lasted long.
Spectacular Spider-Man was extremely well-done and well-received by the audience, as was Wolverine & the X-Men, but neither was being aired on Disney so they got axed in favor of non-collaborative projects that Disney could own top to bottom.

Too bad. You know, while Marvel has had better luck with their movies this past decade, DC's always has had the better animated installments. EMH was one of only two Marvel cartoons I consider to be equal to the DC cartoons, the other one being Spectacular Spider-Man.
Wolverine & the X-Men was very well done, and was in active development for S2 when Marvel got sold and Disney only pulled the plug so they wouldn't have to share revenues with Nickelodeon.

The Avengers will carry on, just not in this form. Reports are that Jeph Loeb, who's in charge of Marvel's animated shows now, preferred to take things in a different direction. So it's a creative decision rather than a financial one.
Translation: it was too "Old School Marvel" for the tastes of Joey Q and his disciples. It reminded them that Marvel Comics did not begin in the year 2000.

I wonder how the X-men TV rights stand, because it would be nice to get a new X-men series preferably one that knows which character traits and team positions go to Cyclops and which ones go to Wolverine.
Which was the whole point of WATXM...Wolverine WAS out of his depth. That was the point, to see how he could reach down and find it within himself to pull his team through.
