While we know that some of the elite in comics have been meeting to work on the animated Ultimate Spider-Man series, we don't know very much else. Head of TV for Marvel, Jeph Loeb has assembled a team of producers that includes Brian Michael Bendis, Paul DIni and the Man of Action team, Joe Kelly, Joe Casey, Steve Seagle, and Duncan Rouleau. The MoA team are well known outside of comics for having created Ben 10 and Generator Rex, and of course Bendis has been writing the Ultimate Spider-Man comic series for most of our natural lives. Now they've released this promo image, our first look at this secretive web-swinging series.
The show will premiere on Disney XD at some unknown point in 2012. You can read all about the unique set up of the summit/writer's room at Marvel.com. The series will function a lot more like a tradition network TV show, with a collaborative writing team, where most animated series are written individually. And that writing team is one heck of a cadre of experience with both Spider-Man, Marvel, and comics in general.
I've never been so into the animated comic adaptations, but I'm definitely intrigued to check this one out.
