Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble will return to Disney XD with new seasons next year. This shall be the fourth season for Ultimate Spider-Man and third for The Avengers, and both series will arrive with different titles. Disney XD has promised “higher stakes and bigger threats.” The network also teases the “trademark quality storytelling that Marvel is famous for,” which could be a promise or a threat.
Viewers of the two series can look forward to several new baddies and help from allies, including Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel:
In the new [Spider-Man] season, the wall-crawler discovers that his greatest enemies – Doctor Octopus, Hydra and the all-new Sinister 6 — are working together to destroy him and S.H.I.E.L.D. Spider-Man and his new pals including Miles Morales, Agent Venom, Iron Spider and the mysterious new Scarlet Spider have their work cut out for them.
Next year will see the Avengers shocked by the return of Ultron and also encounter new threats from the likes Baron Zemo, the Masters of Evil, the Inhumans, and the futuristic Kang the Conqueror. They’ll need help from Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and Ms. Marvel if they hope to survive an all-out Marvel super hero Civil War.
It sure sounds like Civil War is a given, which makes sense considering where the MCU is headed in general. Both new titles will debut in 2016, which should keep you occupied until Disney XD’s upcoming DuckTales reboot kicks off in 2017.
