Even as we mull over Marvel’s next release Spider-Man: Far From Home which swings in theaters next month, Disney XD has brought yet more reasons for the friendly neighborhood’s ardent fans: animation show Marvel’s Spider-Man has been renewed for a third season, the channel announced.
Set to premier in spring 2020, season three, titled Spider-Man: Maximum Venom, would feature a prominent bete noir of the web-slinger from his stellar gallery of rogues in Venom, as he summons a catastrophic threat on Spidey’s home planet that is set to put him through the wringer.
Disney XD senior VP and GM or programming Marc Buhaj said, “We are excited to have Spider-Man and Venom leading this brand-new chapter. These two characters are fan favorites and the Marvel Animation team has delivered a smart, action-packed season for a new generation. We’re grateful for the opportunity to further expand the world of Marvel’s Spider-Man with Venom and continue fresh, heroic storytelling with this third season order.”
“This is the most epic conflict in the history of Marvel Animation,” added Marvel Animation and Family Entertainment’s senior VP Cort Lane. “We planted the seeds in two seasons of Marvel’s Spider-Man and three seasons of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but you don’t need to have watched them to be blown away by this colossal confrontation. While a ton of guest heroes will be on hand, Peter Parker’s special link to Venom makes him the only hero who can tip the scales to save humanity.”
