New Spider-Man cartoon: Ultimate Spider-Man

http://www.worldscreen.com/articles/display/25162

Ultimate Spider-Man will chronicle Peter Parker's evolution from a naïve teen hotshot to a true hero who comes to terms with his origins and abilities. “Ultimate Spider-Man will be a unique journey exploring our favorite web-slinger as he teams up with other fan favorite Marvel Super Heroes in never before seen stories with a new life filled with great challenges, new friends, intense action and character growth," said Eric S. Rollman, the president of Marvel Animation.
Wish they would have continued "Spectacular" that went before it's time

I wonder how much it will follow the comic version. I loved Kitty Pryde appearing in it.

More like Marvel Team-Up.

It's getting hard to be interested in superhero cartoons when they reboot every few years. I mean, I barely remember THE BATMAN was even made at this point.

Sigh, weren't they doing this already with Spectacular? This just smacks of the new owner Disney simply wanting a new incarnation for it's XD channel, and not wanting a 'cast off' developed for another outlet.

I'm holding out a faint hope that this will turn out to be a renamed, reformatted continuation of Spectacular from the same creators. It doesn't sound like it, but we can't conclusively rule it out yet.

Same reason why it's hard for me to be interested in comic books anymore.

The last cartoon I got hooked on was Timm's Justice League.

Pah. Spectacular Spider-Man was my favourite cartoon in years and I'm not even a big fan of the character. Now they seem to be going for a Marvel equivalent of The Brave and the Bold instead, to which I think I'll pass.

I hope Bendis is involved. He is Ultimate Spider-Man.

I dunno, a Marvel Team-Up show anchored by Spidey might be fun. One of the cool things about the Marvel Universe has always been its heavy use of crossovers; it's even become a trademark of the modern Marvel movies. And there's precedent; there were frequent crossovers by other Marvel heroes in the animated Spidey shows of the '80s and '90s. If anything, the Marvel cartoons that have lacked crossovers by other heroes have seemed to be missing something.

Well that's really unfortunately that Spec is going away, but at least we're getting SOME kind of animated Spidey. And a team-up up of the week format could be fun.

Yeah, but will it be any good? In the past two decades we've had two good animated Spidey series and two weak ones. I don't want this to be another case like Spider-Man Unlimited, where a good Spidey show is immediately followed up with a weak one.

And if it is primarily a team-up show, how will they make it fresh and not feel like a Brave and the Bold knockoff?

Well, for starters, it's evidently not going to be retro-Silver Age.
