New Spiderman Toon Gets More Episodes

Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Television (SPT) has ordered an additional 13 episodes to the Spiderman series premiering in 2008.

The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series will now have a run of 26 episodes after Marvel and SPT gave the greenlight for 13 more episodes.

The show will premiere in 2008 on the Kids' WB Saturday morning block on the CW network.

Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Batman) is the supervising producer, along with Victor Cook (Hellboy: Blood and Iron and Buzz Lightyear of Star Command), who serves as producer/supervising director.

“The launch of the new Spider-Man animated series is part of an aggressive strategy to continue to meet fans’ nearly insatiable demand for our world renowned webslinger,” said Eric Rollman for Spider-Man Merchandising, L.P. “The expanded commitment to the animated series will enable us to really support this exciting new Spider-Man iteration with a multi-tiered consumer products and promotional program that will bring potential licensees and retail partners a fresh and exciting new way to bring this ever-popular superhero into the marketplace.”
