The hit series returns for a new season next month...
Disney XD announced in an official press release that season of Ultimate Spider-Man will be premiering on Monday, January 21 with a one-hour primetime premiere at 7PM ET on Disney XD.
The two part premiere will introduce two classic Spider-Man villains to the series in the Lizard (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker) and Electro. In addition, as Spider-Man and his team composed of Nova, White Tiger, Iron Fist, and Power Man battle these villains, a sinister force is assembling to try and spell their defeat.
Following the premiere, new episodes for season two will premiere on Sundays at 11AM ET on Disney XD's Marvel Universe block.
Disney XD also released the following information that apparently ties Ultimate Spider-Man with the new series, Marvel's Avengers Assemble:
"Season two of Marvel's "Ultimate Spider-Man" will follow Spidey and the young heroes as they encounter the ultimate battle between good and evil. But they're not alone, as Spider-Man unites with the stars of the upcoming animated series "Marvel's Avengers Assemble"-- Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk and, for the very first time, Hawkeye. For the first time, they will confront the most threatening assembly of super villains ever seen in animation, the Sinister Six -- uniquely comprised of Rhino, Kraven The Hunter, Lizard, Electro, Beetle and a secret sixth member. Our heroes will also face the return of Loki as he seeks revenge on the web-crawler after their previous unforgettable encounter. Spidey's limits will be tested in this inevitable collision course with his greatest foes, both old and new."
DisneyXD.com/Marvel will also feature an Ultimate Spider Cycle game where players can navigate through city streets to find antidote vials in a race against time to find Venom and save Spider-Man's best friend, Harry (who has been the holder of the Venom sybmiote in the series).
