More sad news from Marvel

Well, it seems as though Wolverine and the X-Men is ending too…

According to Toonzone:

In further recent Marvel Animation news, a second season of the acclaimed Wolverine and The X-Men animated series will not be happening for reasons that have not yet been publically/publicly disclosed. Marvel Animation Age confirms the recent report that Wolverine and The X-Men will not returning for a second season, although Marvel Animation has not yet made any official announcements on the series coming to a close.

Granted this is not confirmed, but it sounds true.

On the bright side, I have found a teaser image for the new Spider-Man cartoon!

It looks pretty impressive, lets just hope it is good enough to justify ending spectacular spider-man.

Goodbye Spectacular Spider-Man

Well, it is official, Spectacular Spider-Man has been canned.  We all knew it was coming, but it still hurts.

The series was doomed to begin with, a victim of circumstance.  It started out on the Kids WB, but near the end of season 1, the station changed hands and became the Kids CW! (I miss WB)  The series was then moved to Toon Disney.

Then Sony lost the right to the seires just as disney was buying marvel.  Its this many changes that can kill a great show.

It just makes me mad that they are canceling it though.  It was such a great series, so full of potential.  It had become my favroite super-hero show!

At least it is not all bad news, there has been another new spidey series announced!  This new series will be titled “Ultimate Spider-Man” and will be based on the comic of the same name.

The main selling point for this new series seems to be guest stars.  Now that marvel owns the rights to the series, they will be teaming spidey up with other heroes…this sounds like a good thing, but I fear it shall become a team-up of the week type thing.

On one hand, I love the ultimate spider-man comics and this one looks promising…on the other hand, I would have preferred more spectacular spidey…

What is with Marvel anyways?  First a Spidey film reboot, now they are replacing our cartoons!  Is this what happens when Disney buys your company?  Well, “Boo!”

Oh well, I suppose I will just have to settle for re-runs of spectacular spidey while I await our new cartoon (its supposed to come out in summer of 2011, I think)
