Disney XD has ordered new seasons of its toon block featuring a rather well-known webslinger and superhero team. The cable net picked up Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man vs. The Sinister 6, featuring the arachnoid crimefighter taking the unified supervillains, and Marvel’s Avengers: Ultron Revolution, in which Captain America, Iron Man and company battle a vengeful Ultron and also encounter other classic comic-book baddies. It’s the fourth season for Ultimate Spider-Man and third for The Avengers.
Disney veteran Drake Bell voices Peter Parker/Spidey in the series alongside Chi McBride as Nick Fury and Steven Weber as Norman Osborn. Greg Cipes, Ogie Banks, Misty Lee co-star along with returning guest voice Stan Lee as Stan the Janitor. In the new season, the wall-crawler discovers that his greatest enemies – Doctor Octopus, Hydra and the all-new Sinister 6 – are working together to destroy him and S.H.I.E.L.D. Spider-Man and his new pals including Miles Morales, Agent Venom, Iron Spider and the mysterious new Scarlet Spider have their work cut out for them.
Next year will see the Avengers shocked by the return of Ultron and also encounter new threats from the likes Baron Zemo, the Masters of Evil, the Inhumans, and the futuristic Kang the Conqueror. They’ll need help from Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and Ms. Marvel if they hope to survive an all-out Marvel super hero Civil War. The Avengers voice cast includes Adrian Pasdar as Iron Man, Fred Tatasciore as Hulk, Roger Craig Smith as Captain America, Travis Willingham as Thor, Troy Baker as Hawkeye, Laura Bailey as Black Widow and Bumper Robinson as Falcon.
“In these new animated seasons we are looking forward to even higher stakes, bigger threats and the trademark quality storytelling that Marvel is famous for,” said Marc Buhaj, Disney XD’s SVP Programming and General Manager.
