‘Spider-Man’, or ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ is an American animated superhero television series that airs on Disney XD and follows the adventures of its eponymous hero, Spider-Man. For those unaware, this isn’t the first animated show chronicling the adventures of Spider-Man – over the years, starting from 1967, the web-slinging superhero has made numerous appearances on the small screen. The last Spider-Man animated show to air was the ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’, which aired on Disney XD from 2012 to 2017, and this show is meant to be a replacement for that. Interestingly, the release of the show coincided with the release of the 2017 movie, ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’.
The show was first announced by Marvel Animation in October 2016, and the hero’s origin story, consisting of six episodes, was aired from June 28, 2017 to July 29, 2017. Subsequently, Season 1 of the show, consisting of 25 episodes, was broadcast from August 19, 2017 to February 18, 2018. Even before Season 1 finished airing, Disney XD announced in January 2018 that it had renewed ‘Spider-Man’ for a second season, which premiered on June 18, 2018. Now, fans of the show, as well as Spider-Man fans in general, are wondering whether Spidey will return for a third season. Here’s everything we know about it.
Marvel’s Spider-Man Cast: Who is in it?
Being an animated show that starts off with Spider-Man’s origin story and follows his adventures as he grows, the show has many characters who are voiced by voice actors.
Robbie Daymond voices Peter Parker / Spider-Man, while Laura Bailey voices Peter’s classmate, Gwen Stacy. Nadji Jeter, meanwhile, voices Miles Morales, who also gets bitten by a radioactive spider and looks up to Peter as a mentor.
Peter’s aunt, the ageless Aunt May, is voiced by Nancy Linari, while Melanie Minichino voices Anya Corazon / Spider-Girl, whose alter-ego is known to Gwen and Miles, but not to Peter. Norman Osborn’s son and Peter’s friend, Harry Osborn, is voiced by Max Mittelman, and Harry later assumes the identity of supervillain Hobgoblin. Further, Fred Tatasciore voices Max Modell, the headmaster of the school Peter is enrolled in, and Daily Bugle head J. Jonah Jameson is voiced by Bob Joles. This wraps up the list of the main cast members.
As far as major villains in the show are concerned, Josh Keaton voices Oscorp CEO Norman Osborn, who briefly assumes the identity of Hobgoblin. Scott Menville, meanwhile, voices Otto Octavius / Doctor Octavius, a scientific prodigy who initially teaches at Peter’s school but later assumes the identity of the supervillain Doctor Octavius following a catastrophic accident. Later in the show, Otto also assumes the identity of Superior Spider-Man, for reasons we are not giving away. Finally, Josh DiMaggio voices Raymond Warren / Jackal, who is Gwen’s uncle. With the ability to transform into an animalistic, green-furred creature called “the Jackal”, Raymond starts stealing high-end, disruptive technologies for reasons unknown. Interestingly, Raymond is further revealed to be the creator of the radioactive spiders which give Peter and MIles their spider abilities.
