Check Out Spider-Gwen’s First Animated Appearance on Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man!


Clearly, two Spider-Men just aren’t enough. Gwen Stacy, a.k.a. Spider-Gwen, is coming to Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man. And her introduction to Peter Parker and Miles Morales goes less than smoothly.

Marvel released this clip of Spider-Gwen’s first animated footage on their YouTube channel. Check it out below!

In the clip, which is from the Season Four finale of the show entitled “Return to the Spider-Verse,” Spider-Man Squared approach this new spider-themed stranger who’s holding a bag of money stolen from a bank.

Just as Spider-Gwen (voiced by Dove Cameron from the film The Descendants) starts to explain that she’s trying to be a hero like them, and that she’d just thwarted a bank robbery and was about to bring the money back, the police show upincluding her father, Captain George Stacy. How can she possibly get out of this without revealing her identity to her dad? Will any of our spider-heroes be apprehended as mere “costumed vigilantes?”

I don’t know, but two things are clear from this clip. First, the NYPD didn’t always have flying robots. And second, Peter Parker is not a fan of family drama.

“Return to the Spider-Verse” airs on Disney XD Saturday, September 17.
