It is without question a truth that Marvel had an amazing panel this past weekend at San Diego Comic Con. They actually had two panels and their animation was just as amazing as the live action panel. The animation panel had talks of Marvel Zombies, X-Men, and of course Spider-Man. We got our first look at the upcoming Spider-Man Freshman year with some amazing artwork.
The upcoming animated Spider-Man show was rumored to be a show based on Tom Hollands Spider-Man before SDCC. We now know this might not be the case as the show is very different and the voice actor is not Holland. Our first look gave us some more comic accurate villains as well as a old Ditko look to the web slinger. The confirmation also came from Comicbook.com during an interview with Brad Winderbaum.
Brad Winderbaum has worked with Marvel Studios for some time now and had some things to share about Spider-Man Freshman year with Phase Zero about where it takes place.
“Well, like we said, in the panel, it follows the pattern that you see in (Captain America) Civil War. Down to Peter getting the broken Blu-ray player from the trash and he walks into his department for the famous moment where Tony stark is waiting for him to offer him the stark internship and take him to Berlin. But because of things that happen in the multiverse because of new, random occurrences, it’s not Tony Stark who’s waiting for him there. It’s Norman Osborn and that sends his life in an unexpected trajectory that collides him with many unexpected characters in the Marvel universe.”
Spider-Man Freshman Year could definitely have any of these character in the animated show appear in the live action MCU. The whole multiverse aspect of the MCU now makes anything possible and gives a lot of flexibility. I am excited to check out Spider-Man Freshman Year and hope we do see some characters come into the MCU, especially Norman.
Spider-Man: Freshman Year is set to debut on Disney+ in 2024, with a Season 2 already on the way.
