That Avengers teaser trailer is online. Plus: Ultimate Spider-Man crews up. Scott Pilgrim vs The Internet User. X-Men: First Cast casting and more! Swearing it'll never touch alcohol again, it's your Comics2Film 10.8.5!





MTV Splash Page says that you can add Paul Dini to the list of names of people working on the new Ultimate Spider-Man toon show for Disney XD.

He'll join previously announced talent such as Brian Michael Bendis (on whose work the show is based), as well as the Man of Action crew of Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle (the guys who created Ben 10 and Generator Rex)

"Brian's work is a great part of the inspiration for the series, and the Man Of Action writers are going to handle the bulk of the episode scripting. Everything is going to be produced under the watchful eye of Jeph Loeb," Dini explained, citing Marvel's new head of TV.

Dini said the show is half derived from Bendis' comics of the same name, and half composed of entirely new stuff. He said fans can also expect the show to be a bit of Marvel Team-Up.

"We're going to be pairing him up with new and different Marvel characters. There's going to be a lot of guest-star action, and there's going to be a redefinition of Peter Parker within the Spider-Man world," Dini said, explaining that they're definitely out to make Peter Parker a modern teenager living in the 21st century and examining how today's world impacts the notion of "With great power comes great responsibility."

While they don't aim to rehash to big, classic storylines, Dini promises a show that will satisfy long-standing aficionados. "I think old-time fans will find what we've done with the character to be pretty good and thoughtful, because we're not out to junk-up Spider-Man. That's not our intent."

Dini says there are 26 episodes in the first season. Click through for his complete comments on Ultimate Spider-Man.
