My brother's role as supervising producer on the new Spider-Man animated series was announced Thursday. Here's Michael Schneider's Variety story.
With "Spider-Man 3" hitting theaters this summer, Kids' WB hopes to capitalize on the anticipated blockbuster by picking up Sony's new animated "Spider-Man" skein.
"The Amazing Spider-Man," from Sony Pictures TV's Culver Entertainment shingle, will launch sometime in early 2008 on the CW's Saturday morning Kids' WB block.
The toon will focus on the start of the Spider-Man mythology, beginning with Peter Parker coping with his newfound powers as he enters his junior year of high school. Greg Weisman ("The Batman") will serve as supervising producer, while Victor Cook ("Hellboy: Blood and Iron") is producer/supervising director.
"We'll have plenty of resonant material for the Spider-Man fan, while engaging the Spider-Man novice with the same thrills we experienced when we were first exposed to the character," Weisman said.
