Sure, a storyline about infection spreading in NYC may not be exactly what we need to get our minds off the current state of the world, but luckily since it’s television there’s no chance of the third season of Marvel’s Spider-Man animated series being delayed due to health concerns. It’s been more than a year since it was announced the third season would be titled “Maximum Venom” consisting of 6 one-hour episodes.
Today, not only was an April 19 release date announced, but the season is set to finally feature the debut of Mary Jane Watson voiced by The Guild‘s Felicia Day no less. Viewers may recall, MJ was briefly teased in the first albeit in a Midtown High tiger mascot.
Given the consolidation of the various Marvel media including Marvel Animation, it’s a safe bet Maximum Venom is the swan song for not only this Spidey cartoon but last decade of Marvel Animation before the next chapter.
You can catch up on Maximum Venom courtesy of video on the Marvel HQ YouTube channel.
