The Spectacular Spider-Man is a planned animated television series that is slated to air in March 1, 2008 on Kids' WB on The CW. The TV series is named after the Marvel Comics series The Spectacular Spider-Man.

Riding the crest of Sony's anticipated summer blockbuster Spider-Man 3, the new animated series picks up the original web-slinger's mythology at the beginning of his hero's journey, the show starts the night before his senior year, albeit four months after he gained his costume and powers. He's learning the lessons that will make him a Spider-MAN.

Having spent the summer engaging common criminals with his new-found powers, Peter Parker must conceal his secret identity while engaging a new level of terror - the multi-leveled pressures of teenage life at home and school while combating bigger, badder super-villains in the real world like Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Venom, and Many more classic villans.

According to writer Greg Weisman (creator of "Gargoyles"), the timeline of the original Spider-Man story arcs, which the series is based on will be condensed in order to move the series forward and include such classic and important characters as Flash Thompson, Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane Watson, Betty Brant, Harry Osborn, J. Jonah Jameson, Aunt May Parker, Robbie Robertson, and Liz Allan.

The new series will not follow the same continuity as the Spider-Man film series.
