What to expect from Spider-Man: Freshman Year
Spider-Man: Year One is placed before the events of Captain America: Civil War, but in an alternate timeline where Peter Parker is approached by Norman Osborn, instead of Tony Stark. This creates a rather unique story where Spider-Man faces many new dangers, but also new allies that have yet to appear in the wider MCU. Trammell has had a long history working in animation with hit shows like Now amphibious, the house of the owl, i Failure techniquesbut he is mainly known for his work Craig del Creek. This series will be his first time leading a production.
Much of the news surrounding the story and character details has already hooked longtime Marvel fans. While the live-action films were intended to focus on Spider-Man’s high school years, the ever-changing film franchise stunted much of the intended teenage growth that would define him. Spider-Man: Year One will allow audiences to go back and see the stories that can only be achieved through the power of animation. With characters like Osborn, Doc Ock, Amadeus Cho and Nico Minoru set to appear, this could also lead to more possible spin-offs in the MCU franchise.
Trammell’s work experience and statements represent a hopeful future Spider-Man: Year One. Now that it joins the ranks of other animation projects such as Marvel Zombies i Moon Girl and Dinosaur Devil, will also allow Marvel to further diversify its entertainment offering. Spider-Man is arguably the biggest name in all of Marvel and Trammell’s quotes so far have left a good feeling that there will be more of him on Disney+.
