Default Spectacular Spider-Man Returns to the CW!



It starts on August 17th, on the Vortexx! So if you missed it the first time, now's your chance to check it out.

And since it's on Network, it will be in more households than... that other show.

Re-runs
When I saw this post, I literally made my seat pregnant. Alas, the show isn't coming back - if you want re-runs, you got 'em on Netflix.

Lets see how many ratings it gets, and if it gets more than Ultimate Spider-Man, we should persuade Disney and Marvel to make Spectacular Spider-Man Season 3 with Ultimate Spider-Man's animation.

I think Greg Wiseman explained that resurrecting SSM would be all but impossible because while Disney now holds the rights to produce animated Spider-Man works, the rights for SSM itself still reside with Sony. It would take a mess of lawyers to untangle it, and Disney's unlikely to ever care enough to do so. Easier & cheaper to just roll a new cartoon.

Spectacular ever getting another season or any form of continuation is a pipe dream at this point. Sorry but you're going to have to stick with Ultimate for the next few years since kids and open minded adults love it. If you think it's unfair for you to loose Spectacular Spider-Man how fair would it be for Ultimate fans to have their show taken away from them because a bunch obsessive Spectacular fans refuse to move on and accept change. The sooner we all understand that the less you have to worry.

I don't think USM is a good show and I think TSSM is much better but I mean come on guys the target audience is children. Marvel/Disney are not going to cancel a show because a minority of adults are complaining.

No Offense to anyone here.

Was great seeing this on TV again this morning!

Really wish there was a way to revive this show.

I continue to watch this every Saturday morning, even though I have all the episodes on DVD. Wish I had a Nielson box.

It would be nice if this got better ratings than Ultimate on XD, but I know that won't happen.

Well USM is only in the 60700 views in the US and 1.5 million in the whole of UK so compare that to CW's own viewership which is 2 to 10 million regularly for shows on the network

I think they will cancel Ultimate in a year or two and make a show that is like a spiritual successer.

3-4 seasons for an animated show these days is quite an acomplishment though

So if you haven't been following, myvortexx.com has been posting HD-quality (720p) streams on their website, typically a few hours after each episode airs. They don't seem to be pulling the episodes down at all, so check them out here each week:

http://myvortexx.com/shows/the-spectacular-spider-man

It should be noted that this is the first time the series has been offered in HD outside of broadcast. Even the digital versions you buy online are only in DVD resolution.

Just wanted to write a bit on this week's episode, Intervention. Stream is here: http://myvortexx.com/episode/intervention

My personal favourite episode of the series. Perhaps it's not the first time we've seen crazy Evangelion-style introspection with Peter Parker, but I doubt there's a better way to execute it. While TSSM was fairly free of creative decisions influenced by merchandising interests, the decision to include the symbiote in the first season was likely steered a little bit more by marketing. Even if the writers hands weren't actively forced into integrating that storyline as early on as they did, I doubt Hasbro would've been too happy if there wasn't a Venom figure in their initial roll-out of toys. They could've fought against that expectation or simply shoe-horned the whole thing in a dismissing fashion like Sam Raimi did in Spider-Man 3, but instead they took the route that would best justify including the character this early on and made him integral to Peter Parker as a character. Not just with Eddie Brock as a childhood friend, but by tying Peter's bond with the symbiote with the most thematically important aspects of his character. Virtually every iteration of the Venom story up to this point has been cynical in its conception, and fixing that is no easy task. It took guts to elevate the story to the point where the story is not only justified the perceived significance of the symbiote, but also justified it as part of the foundation being set in the first season of a television series. The staff took an enormous risk by going this route, and man did it pay off.

It goes without saying that this surpasses the original bell tower scene from the comics and exposes its missed opportunities. I'd take it a step further and say that the scene is elevated to the same thematic and narrative significance of "If This Be My Destiny" during the original Lee-Ditko run, and it is definitely a worthy successor of that story. In fact, if there's one negative thing about this episode (apart from its sub-par animation - that scene of the symbiote bonding with Eddie makes me cringe every time!) it's that the actual adaptation of that pivotal scene from ASM #33 in Shear Strength winds up losing a lot of its thunder, despite the fact that it's probably the show's best episode from a technical standpoint. But that's exactly the type of bold shift that will make it pretty much impossible to ever top this series.

Still enjoying this show on Saturday mornings. They just finished the Master Planner arc today. How I wish there was some way to get a third season!

Marvel, if you are reading this, please take my words seriously: If you continue the series in comic book form, I would still be satisfied. Please?

There's no reason to continue this show in comic form.

Why not? Its never getting continued on TV, and it left us with a cliffhanger, so if you could have it continue as a comic book, why not? Unless you hate it for some reason and love Ultimate Spider-Man...
