Disney XD has announced that it has renewed the animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man for a third season, which will be subtitled Maximum Venom and will see the alien symbiote summoning an “earth-shattering threat from its home planet”.
“We are excited to have Spider-Man and Venom leading this brand-new chapter,” said Marc Buhaj, Senior VP of Programming at Disney XD. “These two characters are fan favorites and the Marvel Animation team has delivered a smart, action-packed season for a new generation. We’re grateful for the opportunity to further expand the world of Marvel’s Spider-Man with Venom and continue fresh, heroic storytelling with this third season order.”
“This is the most epic conflict in the history of Marvel Animation,” added Cort Lane, Senior VP of Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment. “We planted the seeds in two seasons of Marvel’s Spider-Man and three seasons of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but you don’t need to have watched them to be blown away by this colossal confrontation. While a ton of guest heroes will be on hand, Peter Parker’s special link to Venom makes him the only hero who can tip the scales to save humanity.”
Marvel’s Spider-Man is set to return this September for the second half of season two, which continues its Superior Spider-Man adaptation with a five-part story entitled ‘Super Spider-Man’.
