The Spectacular Spider-Man is an American animated television series based on the superhero character published by Marvel Comics and developed for television by Greg Weisman and Victor Cook.

Premise Edit

The two seasons of the series are each set during a semester of Peter Parker's high school years, with season one running from September to November and season two from December to March.

Why It Was Cancelled Edit

In exchange for concessions on the movie rights, Sony had relinquished to Marvel its license to produce television works that used Spider-Man and associated characters, but had retained ownership of The Spectacular Spider-Man series and all of the production elements created specifically for it, such as character designs and storylines. Therefore, neither Sony nor Marvel could continue production on the series, as each lacked some of the essential rights to do so. Additionally, Marvel was acquired by The Walt Disney Company approximately at the same time that Sony returned the Spider-Man television rights to them. Greg Weisman has revealed what Season 3 and beyond would’ve been like.
