Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures Television have doubled the original episode order for the new animated TV series The Spectacular Spider-Man, for a total order of 26 thirty minute episodes.
The series is currently in production at Culver Entertainment, which has begun the new set of 13 episodes. The initial 13 episodes are still slated to premiere in early 2008 on Kids’ WB! on the US CW Network.
The series wil follow Spider-Man’s mythology from the beginning of his hero’s journey as a not-so-typical 16-year-old, with Peter Parker’s new-found powers engaging the multi-leveled pressures of teenage life while combating bigger, badder super-villains in the real world.
Greg Weisman (Gargoyles,The Batman) is supervising producer on the show with Victor Cook (Hellboy: Blood and Iron) as producer/supervising director.
