Marvel Grants New Seasons For Spider-Man, Avengers, & GotG Cartoons

Spidey's new season should be superior, and the Guardians may breakout in theirs.

Marvel's current stable of cartoons are getting new seasons and the company's Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment Cort Lane stepped up to talk about them.

A second season for Marvel's Spider-Man was announced today, and will be bringing one of Dan Slott's Spider-Man storylines to the small screen. Yes, the second season of Spider-Man will be based on the Superior Spider-Man comic book arc. According to Lane, that means:

"… Doc Ock will become Spider-Man and Peter Parker will go away for a brief time. That has huge implications. It also means you get to see more of the other Spider characters in costume. And we have an amazing onslaught of villains — particular some of the newer villains from publishing — that Doc Ock throws at Spider-Man."


The Avengers cartoon, in its fifth season, will transition from Marvel's Avengers: Secret Wars to Marvel's Avengers: Black Panther's Quest. As implied from the subtitle, Black Panther will be the focus of the new season, with the Avengers sort of taking a backseat. Lane describes Black Panther's Quest:

"T’Challa has a conflict between being the King of Wakanda and protecting his country and his family, and serving as an Avenger. That conflict creates all kinds of problems for him and for the Avengers. It’s a globetrotting, espionage-filled, epic story about evil forces looking to take over Wakanda, because it truly has the most valuable resources in the world. But at its core, what holds it together emotionally, is a story about a brother and his little sister, and about how T’Challa and Shuri interact with each other. There’s a sense of competitiveness, obviously there is lots of love, there’s sadness over the loss of their father… And he’s an overprotective older brother and she’s a younger sister who trained to be the Black Panther too and has a lot to prove, she feels."




Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is getting a third season… which has a somewhat familiar sounding subtitle. The subtitle is Mission: Breakout, which has the same name as the ride at Disney, of which a comic tie-in was also produced. The third season doesn't seem limited to the breakout story though, as detailed by Lane:

"I love the ride, love the story of the ride, and since we knew and were involved in the development to some extent, we could incorporate Tivan’s collection and the Guardians’ escape. But the Collector wants revenge and they pay a price, and particularly mid-season, they’re up against the wall. But before that happens, a lot of fun and interesting things occur for the Guardians. They get rich and famous and how they individually deal with that reveals a lot about each character and is pretty funny in some cases. But the team needs to come back together midseason, with the Collector after them. That brings us into a storyline that we’ve talked about at cons, called "Black Vortex," where the Guardians go into different dimensions, which are animated in different styles. I can’t talk about those individual stories, but there’s a story for each of the Guardians and that’s a really exciting creative leap for us and that leads us through the second part of the season."




Lane also discussed Marvel's other animated fare, including the preschool-targeted Marvel Super Hero Adventures, the Marvel Funko shorts, and Marvel Rising initiative.
