The San Diego Comic-Con Marvel Animation panel unveiled brand-new details on Spider-Man: Freshman Year. Panelists at the convention have confirmed that the series is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, before the events of Captain America: Civil War, and will see Peter Parker battle a diverse group of villains, team up with new heroes and make new friends.
Of those new friends, Parker will be hanging out with Nico Minoru (introduced in Marvel’s Runaways), Amadeus Cho, and Harry Osborn. Minoru will be Parker’s best friend in the show. You can look at their character designs below:
Peter Parker will also have multiple suits designed, including one created by Norman Osborn, which you can look at below:
Norman Osborn will also be in the show as Peter’s mentor. It seems as though Tony Stark is out of the picture and will not be in the series. However, Spider-Man will be interacting with Doctor Strange and The Man Without Fear himself, Daredevil, in his iconic black suit. What’s even more exciting is that Charlie Cox will be reprising his role as Daredevil, and you can look at his new suit design, and a first look at Doctor Strange, below:
Villains will include Unicorn, Chamelon, Scorpion, Speed Demon, Tarantula, Rhino, and Doc Octopus, and you can look at their design below:
Additionally, a second season, titled Sophomore Year, was announced. Though no specific release date has been given, it is expected that Spider-Man: Freshman Year will be released on Disney+ in 2024, so one assumes that Sophomore Year could release as soon as 2025 or 2026.
