An animated series that has drawn a lot of attention since it was announced is Spider-Man: Freshman Year, as it deals with the origin of Tom Holland's Spider-Man. And fortunately, we have received new details about the series.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Marvel shared details about the new series, and the first thing is that it will be a production that will arrive on Disney + at some point in 2024, which means that there is still more than a year to see it.
An incredible detail that will surely excite many fans is that the series will feature the participation of Charlie Cox, the actor from Daredevil. The hero of Hell's Kitchen will appear as an ally of Spider-Man in the early years of his adventure.
Something important to mention is that the art of the series was also shown, which shows a style that seeks to pay homage to the classic Spider-Man comics. Villains such as Dr. Octopus, Chameleon, Speed Demon, and Scorpion were also confirmed to appear. Besides that, it seems that Norman, Harry Osborn, and Amadeus Cho will have an essential role in this story.
WHAT IS SPIDER-MAN: FRESHMAN YEAR?
Don't worry, if you haven't heard of this new series, we'll explain it to you.
It is a series that follows Tom Holland's Spider-Man before the events of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Civil War. This means we will see a teenager in his first year of high school as he gets used to his role as a superhero. It is worth mentioning that the second season called Sophomore Year, is already planned and will follow Peter Parker in his second year of high school.
If you're a fan or familiar with the history of Spider-Man, this might sound a bit confusing, as, with the appearances of characters like Dr. Octopus and Daredevil, many aren't sure if this animated series will be canon or not. The most accepted theory so far is that it will be an alternate universe story in which Norman Osborn becomes Peter Parker's mentor instead of Tony Stark. That said, it's not confirmed yet.
