Things We Saw Today: ‘Spider-Man: Freshman Year’ Is Already Getting a Season 2

Early today on day two of San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Marvel released details of the animated series following a young Peter Parker called Spider-Man: Freshmen Year. Without getting into all the weeds because our TMS Spider-Man expert (Rachel Leishman) already has that covered, the story will essentially cover his life before meeting Tony Stark, and a certain lawyer of Hell’s Kitchen will be a part of the series (among other already characters introduced outside of a Spider-Man movie). Also, they announced that a season two, entitled Spider-Man: Sophomore Year, is officially a thing.

Without more than a handful of character concepts and such for season one, we have limited information as to what his sophomore year would be like. All descriptions of Peter put him at 15 years old in Spider-Man: Homecoming, so this means his sophomore year (at the least) would include some more oversight from Tony Stark. Since they met for Avengers: Civil War, I guess that happened just a few months before or will explain an absence in season one or two.

If it seems like I’m being nitpicky, I’m just trying to figure out who might reappear (though the new people will be more exciting), since this is supposed to work into the MCU. Who knows, maybe the multiverse stories could mess that up? Regardless, this year marks the 60th anniversary of the teenage superhero and also a great time to be a Spider-Man fan.
