Marvel Head of Animation Reveals New Details About Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider Man and Eyes of Wakanda

The live-action portion of the MCU is certainly not performing very well considering all the poorly received projects in the last few years, however the latest animated show ‘X-Men ’97’ received constantly high ratings, which opened another market on which the franchise can expand.

In recent times, there have been rumors that the MCU will deal more with animated projects in the future, and considering that we have several shows slated for release in the future, it’s honestly not that hard to believe them.

‘Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man’ and ‘Eyes of Wakanda’ are both slated for 2024 release (so far) and Brad Winderbaum Head of Animation for Marvel Studios sat down with ComicBook to talk some details about both shows.

The exec praised the upcoming show focused on young Spider-Man. Here’s what he had to say about it:

I mean, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man is amazing, to say the least. I think it’s really going to surprise people. It is very much like a cut from that Steve Ditko era of the comics. It’s Peter Parker back in high school just trying to make it work, take care of his aunt, completely broke, and having to be a superhero. It’s so essentially Spider-Man, and what Jeff Trammell, the creator of that show, did, which I think people are going to love, is he built this ensemble of characters around Peter that you fall in love with. Similarly, just because it’s long-form storytelling, as those relationships brew when the stakes rise in that first season, things feel really tragic and dangerous, and pretty incredible. So, I love that show.

He also talked about ‘Eyes of Wakanda,’ recently we’ve learned that it’s going to anthology show but it will be canon to the MCU as it focuses on a group of Wakandan heroes as they search and recover vibranium artifacts:

Eyes of Wakanda is an MCU show. This is the history of Wakanda as told through the War Dogs, and it is some of the best animation we’ve ever done. Todd Harris is the creator of that one. That’s just such a cool show.

‘Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man’ should arrive on the streaming service on November 2, 2024, while ‘Eyes of Wakanda’ doesn’t have a confirmed release date as of now.
