Marvel’s Spider-Man has been renewed for a third season, and it is going with a rather unusual theme. The season will be known as “Maximum Venom.”
Maximum Venom is, of course, a play on the famous 1993 storyline in the comics, Maximum Carnage. That storyline followed Spider-Man and other heroes teaming up against Carnage and a host of other villains. The description for the third season of the animated series is described as, “Spider-Man is pushed to his breaking point when Venom summons an earth-shattering threat from his home planet.”
“We are excited to have Spider-Man and Venom leading this brand-new chapter,” said Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, Programming and general manager, Disney XD. “These two characters are fan favorites and the Marvel Animation team has delivered a smart, action-packed season for a new generation. We’re grateful for the opportunity to further expand the world of Marvel’s Spider-Man with Venom and continue fresh, heroic storytelling with this third season order.”
“This is the most epic conflict in the history of Marvel Animation,” added Cort Lane, senior vice president, Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment. “We planted the seeds in two seasons of Marvel’s Spider-Man and three seasons of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but you don’t need to have watched them to be blown away by this colossal confrontation. While a ton of guest heroes will be on hand, Peter Parker’s special link to Venom makes him the only hero who can tip the scales to save humanity.”
Marvel’s Spider-Man will resume season 2 in September and will close out with a take on the “Superior Spider-Man” story that sees Doctor Octopus taking over Spider-Man’s body and then using his powers to further his own evil agenda.
