The clip shown at WonderCon shows Peter using a homemade costume that resembles his earlier homemade costume from the MCU. He chases down some robbers and has a flashback for Uncle Ben teaching him about with great power comes great responsibility. After he stops the robbers from getting away, he's attacked by Vulture. Vulture has a fancy high-tech set of armor here.
How would you compare the animation and art to current marvel shows?

I've seen the clip, and the animation seems more fluid than the current shows. The art style kind of looks like Voltron: Legendary Defender without character shading; the characters have anime eyes, but the backgrounds have a bit more shading than I've seen in Guardians season 2.

As for the writing, it's actually good writing with legitimate emotion and characterization. Peter has a pep talk with Uncle Ben, and while I don't remember it completely it's something I could compare to Avengers: EMH in this regard.

From Comic Book Revolution's coverage of the Marvel Animation panel at Wonder Con:

The panel then begins with a quick clip of the new Spider-Man cartoon. We see Peter in his hoodie makeshift Spider-Man costume seen briefly in Captain America: Civil War and in the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer. The clip is quickly stopped by Stephen Wacker quickly cut the clip but they tease audience with possibly showing full clip later.
Clip continues with Spider-Man in his hoodie costume and having his moment ruined by a pigeon. He ends up falling and old lady yells at her for landing near his pigeon coop. His web shooters fail. Spider-Man sees a crime scene and flashes back to what Uncle Ben would tell him to do. Uncle Ben gives young Peter advice and Peter then helps Uncle Ben fix his cuckoo clock. Great Power comes great responsibility is spoken in the form of an “equation” by Uncle Ben.
Spider-Man fixes his web shooters and chases the car chase and his web shooters work but web breaks. He lands on the car and sees that the car will hit some people. Peter thinks quick and drives the van into a skate park where he catches it in time for people to catch it. Peter’s Spider-sense goes off. Vulture attacks him with a sonic scream to end the clip and panel.

Not much we didn't already know but I figured it would be worth posting again.

Art is more stylized. If I were to describe designs they were somewhere inbetween the more blocky and weird shapes of Spectacular Spider-Man and Ultimate Spider-Man. Animation was decent.

Just wanted to point out that if the footage isn't released by an official channel, but somehow does leak online, it would be against the rules to post it or link to it on this forum. Discussing the clip is allowed, even encouraged.

A mix between Spectacular and USM's art styles could be pretty good :).

You have the more stylized and cartoony designs which lend to more dynamic and fluid action sequences or movements, and look far better in a cartoon format, but the designs may be a little more "mainstream" and not as much of a turn-off for some people :ack:.

As long as the animation and designs looks more vibrant and less clunky then what we get from Avengers and Guardians, and fit Spidey, I'm good ;).

That sounds great. Anything else that you remember?

I was also wondering about who the voice actors are. I doubt anything was officially announced, otherwise it would have been reported by now.

For those who saw the clip, do you think you can recognize who voices Spidey or Uncle Ben? Mostly out of curiosity, since I'm guessing they'll announce the cast soon enough.

Question for those in attendence. How does the vulture costume look? Is it similar to the movie or the comics? If it is the latter what version of the costume does he have?

Thanks

Well, they are all good questions. And hopefully all will be answered soon, in the next thread.
