Well not only that but Bendis has gone on record saying that Green Goblin and Hobgoblin were the only things he'd "do over" on the supervillain side, so maybe they will be remade to resemble Bendis' preferred vision.
That's reassuring, I liked Ultimate Green Goblin besides him hulking out. Now, Ultimate Hobgoblin I did not like at all. I hope that we see Hobgoblin in this show, but only if it does him justice since I'm still bummed we didn't get to see him in TSSM.

The point is, WE KNOW NOTHING. All that we can do is guess and conjecture based on who we know is attached, and who's rumored to be attached (that likely fake IMDB cast list, for example). Information should slowly but steadily come in the closer we get to February 2012.

So the main plot is going to be SHIELD training Spidey and him teaming up with heroes, mainly teen ones? Sounds a bit like the current comics plot, underutilised as it is, with SHIELD saying they'll train him (but doing a terrible job at it as they have no idea how to do it) and him living with Human Torch and Iceman.

I just wish they’d release a better poster so they can stop using that mocked up one with a picture form the comics. It’s going to get people confused and thinking that’s what the series is going to look like.

I really like the sound of that. It seems different enough to set it apart from past Spidey series, but still seems grounded enough in Marvel lore and history to not feel like a "not-the-Spidey-I-know" concept (like Spidey going to a different planet to fight animals or getting himself a giant robot to fight monsters).

I like the team up idea. I wonder if they gave much thought to naming the show "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends". Iceman and Firestar better show up! :D

Sounds good so far. It's different enough to past shows so it seems like it'll be more fresh, and we get to see other Marvel characters too so that's a plus. Can't wait until this debuts, I wonder who they'll get to voice Spider-Man.

Interesting. I prefer Spider-Man as a solo hero - he's like the Batman of the Marvel Universe, who works just as well (if not better) in his own little corner, rather than crossing over with all sorts of other characters. But if this, like The Brave and The Bold, gives some otherwise rarely seen characters spotlight, I'll be happy to see it. Daredevil hasn't been around since the 90s Cartoon, Doctor Strange had his movie but is barren since, Human Torch and Iceman are always good choices... lots of potential for fun there.

And it evidently has Paul Dini on the creative team, so, I'm just about sold there. I'm not too big a fan of Man of Action, but, there's worse choices.

I noticed something about an upcoming Marvel block on Disney XD. Any idea what'll be airing there? Avengers and Spider-Man, obviously, but Iron Man's tired up at Nicktoons and I don't think I've heard of any other new shows in the pipeline. Will is just be re-runs of old series?

Isn't there supposed to be a new X-Men series too?

It's also quite likely that there are other series being worked on that we don't know anything about yet.

There hasn't been any word, but if they couldn't secure the finances for season 2 of Wolverine and the X-Men I doubt they'd have another X-Men show in production. Other than the X-Men anime of course, but I believe all of those are going to G4 and not Disney XD.

This looks like Generator Spider-Man to me. No thanks, I already got enough Generator with the Rex variant.

EDIT: Though I'll probably watch the first couple of episodes anyway. I'm too much of a Spidey-geek to completely ignore it.

I like that Delta Rune doesn't even try to conceal it's creepy subtext. Just tosses it right at you from the start.
