We’ve seen more than a few sneak peeks of Marvel’s new animated Spider-Man, but Disney XD saved the best for D23. Not only do we have an August premiere, but a full cast including Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, Doc Ock, and Patton Oswalt as Uncle Ben!
Disney confirms that Marvel’s Spider-Man will web up an hour-long premiere Saturday, August 19 at 7:00 A.M., appearing on the Disney XD app at 12:01 A.M.

Villains will include Doctor Octopus (Scott Menville), The Jackal (John DiMaggio) and The Vulture (Alastair Duncan).
Additionally, Marvel Chief Creative officer Joe Quesada will voice Joe the coffee shop owner, while the above trailer also features Sandman, Scorpion, and a look at Peter’s wrestling days (gulp). Check out the cast and their character images below:
The new series is headed up by story editor Kevin Shinick and supervising director Philip Pignotti, previously of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble. So reads the synopsis:
In the new series, “Marvel’s Spider-Man,” we will see a fresh take on Spider-Man, as Peter Parker is learning the responsibility that comes along with being a new, super-powered hero in New York City, just as he’s being accepted into Horizon High, a high school for brilliant young scientific minds. He struggles with the duality of his social life at school and hiding his secret identity from everyone including his best friend Harry Osborn, who attends the competing Osborn Academy for geniuses. As Peter embraces his alter-ego and takes on super villains such as Vulture, Lizard, Doctor Octopus and Sandman, he watches his hero lifestyle come between his personal relationships and struggles to keep Harry from landing on the wrong side of the law.
Marvel’s Spider-Man will debut more at Comic-Con 2017, so stay tuned.
