One of Marvel’s most popular superheroes is swinging into more action on Disney XD, with season two of Marvel’s Spider-Man set to bow on the US channel on June 18.
The 26 x 22-minute animated series’ second season includes new cast members Sofia Carson and Booboo Stewart (Descendants), Nathaniel Potvin (MECH-X4), NASCAR racer Ryan Blaney and social media star Teala Dunn. It will follow Peter Parker through his sophomore year of high school as he tries to juggle writing for The Daily Bugle, school and fighting Doc Ock.
Marvel’s Spider-Man premiered last August, following the end of long-running hit Ultimate Spider-Man (which closed out with 104 episodes). Marvel’s Spider-Man is executive produced by Alan Fine (Marvel’s The Avengers), Joe Quesada (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), Dan Buckley (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), Cort Lane (Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man) and Eric Radomski (Spawn, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble). Co-executive producers on the series also include legendary Marvel exec Stan Lee and Marsha Griffin (Transformers Prime).
