Short Synopsis: This adventure finds our hero tackling more Super Villains both old and new, including Chameleon, Venom and the Sinister Six: Electro, Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Sandman, Rhino and Shocker. While these criminals are almost more than Spidey can handle, his real struggle becomes an internal one. The stress is enough to drive a high school Super Hero over the edge, but making mistakes and learning lessons is all in a days work for the Spectacular Spider-Man!
As previously stated this will be a Sony Entertainment release, due to the fact that they own the rights to the animated series and not Disney. It's the sad reason the series was never renewed and why we got.. *shudder* Ultimate Spider-Man instead.
Toon Zone also notes there's a listing for a Second Season release on DVD, but not release date or art currently. This complete series Blu Ray set will be released on April 22nd. With that cue that catchy theme:
