Marvel has released the first film clip for their animated series Ultimate Spider-Man over at Entertainment Weekly. The series looks like it will be pretty cool. There's some fun cheesy humor that you'll see in this clip featuring Nick Fury talking to Spider-Man about going through some S.H.I.E.L.D. training.
The series is set to be released on April 1st, 2012 on Disney XD. The series’ creative team includes a few names you might be familiar with such as Brian Michael Bendis, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and co-creator Paul Dini. (Batman: The Animated Series) Spider-Man will be voiced by Drake Bell (Drake & Josh).
As we previously reported, The stories sound like they will be cool, and there are a ton of characters that will be loaded into it such as Nick Fury played by Chi McBride, who will be Spider-Man's mentor, Agent Coulson, who will be played by Clark Gregg from the Marvel films and will be the high school principle, JK Simmons will play JJ Jameson as he has in the films, Stephen Webber will play Norman Osborn, "a powerful industrial who a grudge with Spider-Man," and Stan Lee will be the high school janitor in the series.
The show will have a very fun and playful tone to it that I think a lot of people are going to like. They play a lot with the style and the characters. For example Peter Parker will be talking to the audience and cracking jokes. At Comic-Con last year, Loeb said, "Our hope is that it looks different from any Spider-Man show you've seen before.”
