We've got a couple new clips from Marvel's upcoming animated series Ultimate Spider-Man for you to watch. The series is set to air on April 1st on Disney XD, and it looks like it will be a fun series. I'm actually excited about watching it with my kids. The show is very playful with its audience, and I think that is going to be a main selling point. It's definitely different, and that's why I'm looking forward to it. Does the show interest you?
