TEENAGE WEB-SLINGING SUPERHEROES SAVE NEW YORK CITY FROM SUPER VILLAINS IN “MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN”, PREMIERING 14 OCTOBER, 10AM ON DISNEY XD (ASTRO CH 617) AND AVAILABLE ON DEMAND
Your friendly neighborhood superhero Spider-Man is back in the highly anticipated animated series “Marvel’s Spider-Man”, which premieres Saturday 14 October, 10AM on Disney XD (Astro Ch 617) and available On Demand. The series introduces the famous wall crawling superhero to a new generation of audiences as we go back to the basics with the story of Spider-Man.
Peter Parker is an ordinary teen who is discovering his newfound “spidey senses” and is learning how to use them responsibly, while at the same time adjusting to life at Horizon High, a high school for young, brilliant scientific minds. Central to the series is Peter’s struggle with his dual life as a teenage science prodigy by day and web-slinging superhero by night.
The series also introduces Team Spider-Man, Peter’s classmates at Horizon High who, like him, are science geniuses by day and crime fighters by night. The team includes:
- Peter Parker aka Spider-Man (voiced by Robbie Daymond), an ordinary teen who develops strange new powers after he is bitten by a radioactive spider. He devotes his life to honoring his Uncle Ben’s wisdom.
- Gwen Stacy aka Spider-Gwen (voiced by Laura Bailey), a star student at Horizon High who specializes in DNA and gene splicing.
- Anya Corazon aka Spider-Girl (voiced by Melanie Minichino), a top student at Horizon High who uses her intellect to develop her own spider powers.
- Miles Morales aka Kid Arachnid (voiced by Nadji Jeter), Horizon High’s youngest student who gains spider powers of his own due to one of Peter’s science experiments.
Utilizing their extensive knowledge in science, the team is able to come up with creative and innovative ways to work together and protect New York City from super villains like Vulture, Lizard, Sandman and Doctor Octopus, a teenage prodigy and Peter Parker’s rival in school. Through their many exciting, action-packed adventures, Peter and his friends come to embrace their alter-egos and learn that with great power comes great responsibility.
Disney XD brings Spider-Man closer to audiences in a series of comedic videos featuring Malaysian kids who imagine a world with their friendly neighborhood superhero. From 1 October, fans can tune in to Disney XD and Disney Channel to enjoy the fun videos.
