March 16, 2011 by James Harvey

Disney XD has released a description for the upcoming all-new Ultimate Spider-Man animated series, debuting late 2011/early 2012 on the network.

Announced during the Disney 2011 Upfronts, Disney XD has released the following description for the upcoming Ultimate Spider-Man animated series from Marvel Animation. The upfront is an annual meeting hosted at the start of important advertising sales periods by television network executives, attended by the press and major advertisers. It allows marketers to buy commercial airtime "up front", or several months before the television season begins, and the press to get a look at upcoming programming events. The new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon is cited as a cornerstone for the 2011 - 2012 Disney XD line-up. Continue below for the official press description for Ultimate Spider-Man.

Ultimate Spider-Man (new animated series)

The centerpiece of an upcoming Marvel programming block on Disney XD, this animated series from Marvel follows Peter Parker who, as the storyline begins, has been Spider-Man for just one year. He’s fought villains, saved lives, but still has much to learn about being a super-hero. Now, Nick Fury gives Peter the chance to go to the next level — to train to be a real super-hero and become The Ultimate Spider-Man. But before he can do that, Peter will have to learn how to work with a team of fellow teenage super-heroes. The series’ award-winning creative team includes Paul Dini (“Batman: The Animated Series,” “Lost”), the creative powerhouse Man of Action Studios (creators of “Ben 10″ and “Generator Rex”), comprised of lauded creators Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle; and Brian Michael Bendis (visionary behind Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man comic series).

Additionally, The Avengers: Earth's Mightest Heroes was among the series announced returning to the Disney XD network for the coming 2011 - 2012 season. 52 episodes are being produced for the acclaimed series, with the option for more. Marvel Animation's The Avengers: Earth's Mightest Heroes currently airs multiple times throughout the week on Disney XD, with new episodes debuting Sundays at 10:00am (ET).
