Get a fresh look at Spidey’s action-packed adventures, new Spidey Tech, and special guest stars to excite fans and bring everyone’s favorite Wallcrawler to the small screen like never before! The series premieres April 1 at 11am/10c inside Marvel Universe on Disney XD!

The series premiere was shown at WonderCon in Anaheim a couple of weekends ago.   If you couldn’t make it there, at least you won’t have long to wait!  We think it looks pretty good, and we like the fresh casting of Spider-Man as a brash kid who’s not completely sure of himself yet.  He’s not the seasoned, confident hero – he’s only now coming to terms with what it means to be Spider-Man, and has taken a first step into a larger world.  Unfortunately that larger world seems to come with built-in toy marketing plugs, and traditionally Spider-Man hasn’t been the vehicle of many gadgets.  Hint to Disney – it’s not his gadgets that make him a superhero.

The Avengers: Earth’s Mightest Heroes is back for season two, and while this is welcome, and appears to pick up from where Season 1 left off, we’re looking at this and can’t help comparing it to the Avengers movie – and it’s not holding up well in the comparison.  It’s apples and oranges, yes, but there’s no way people aren’t going ot make that comparison anyway.  Still, the story lines have been good, and worth the time it takes to watch the episodes.  We’re hoping to see better than this trailer, though.

On April 1, we’ll get to see both shows.  Of the two, Ultimate Spider-Man rocks more.
