Based on Marvel's legendary Super Hero, THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN journeys back to the web-slinger's junior year in high school, when a not-so-typical 16-year-old named Peter Parker struggles to conceal his secret identity, endure the pressures of teenage life and combat never before seen Super Villains. In Season Two of THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, things aren't getting any easier for Peter Parker. While he struggles to sort out his feelings for Gwen Stacy, Liz Allan, Mary Jane Watson and the Black Cat, the challenges for Spider-Man are piling up. There's a mysterious new villain in town, the Master Planner, whose rise will lead to a gang war with Tombstone and Silvermane. Throw in the return of Rhino, Electro, Vulture, Sandman, Doctor Octopus, Hammerhead, the New Enforcers and the Cat Burglar plus new opponents Mysterio, Kraven, Tinkerer, Colonel Jupiter, Silver Sable and Molten Man, and Spidey's plate is pretty darn full. And in case that's not enough, wait until Venom resurfaces to reveal Pete/Spidey's secret identity to the rest of the world! All this and the truth about the Green Goblin! Trust us, you can't afford to miss a second of THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN! Greg Weisman and Victor Cook serve as supervising producers on the series. Stan Lee, Craig Kyle and Eric Rollman are executive producers. The series is produced by Culver Entertainment, a Sony Pictures Television Company in association with Marvel Entertainment.
