As announced back in May, after a year long hiatus Marvel’s Spider-Man cartoon is back on DisneyXD with new episodes. You can watch the “The Day Without Spider-Man” now for free on the DisneyXD YoutTube channel. Picking up where the series last left off, the series is adapting its own version of the infamous Superior Spider-Man Saga from veteran Spider-Man comics writer Dan Slott that saw the Spidey’s longtime nemesis Otto Octavius better known as Doc Ock take over the body of everyone’s favorite Friendly Neighborhood Webslinger.
Considering that Slott is a consulting producer on Marvel’s Spider-Man animated series, it’s not a complete surprise. And based on the descriptions from the October episodes, it appears we’ll be seeing even more elements incorporated from his epic Spidey run as well as some notable guest stars.
Just ahead of their crossover with Hulu’s Runaways series, Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt will be providing the voices of Cloak and Dagger respectively.
Augustus Roman alias Regent is a supervillain who made his first appearance in the Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows mini from Dan Slott and Adam Kubert that was a Secret Wars tie-in. Making his way into the main 616 Universe, Regent as CEO of Empire Unlimited created the supervillain prison known as The Cellar where he secretly siphoned the powers from incarcerated supervillains. Looks like the animated version of Regent will be following the same modus operandi.
Tiberius Stone, who played a significant part in Slott’s Spidey run as a scientist at Horizon Labs and later co-founder of Alchemax, will be making his animated debut in October as well. As fans of the 2099 are well aware, Tiberius is the father of Tyler Stone and inadvertently the biological grandfather of Miguel O’Hara a.k.a Spider-Man 2099. Could we be seeing some time travel shenanigans with Spidey 2099 in season?
