During the packed panel, news was also shared about the “Marvel’s Spider-Man” voice cast, season three of “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout” and an all-new animated special from The LEGO Group and Marvel. Take a look at “Marvel’s Spider-Man” in the video above!

 

The “Marvel’s Spider-Man” voice cast includes: Robbie Daymond (“Bread Winners,” “Get Blake”) as Spider-Man, Max Mittleman as Harry Osborn (“One-Punch Man,” “Transformers: Robots in Disguise”), Nadji Jeter as Miles Morales (“Jessie,” “Kirby Buckets”), Melanie Minichino (“Blaze and the Monster Machine,” “Mr. Peabody and Sherman”) as Anya Corazon, Fred Tatasciore (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” “Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.”) as Max Modell, Laura Bailey (“DragonBall Z,” “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”) as Gwen Stacy, Nancy Linari (“The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest,” “The Addams Family”) as Aunt May, Patton Oswalt (“Ratatouille,” “Pickle and Peanut”) as Uncle Ben, Scott Menville (“Teen Titans,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Doc Ock, John DiMaggio (“Clarence,” “Samurai Jack”) as The Jackal, Alastair Duncan (“The Batman,” “Final Fantasy XIV”) as Vulture, and Marvel’s very own Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, who is also executive producing the series, as the coffee shop owner Joe.

In the new series, “Marvel’s Spider-Man,” we will see a fresh take on Spider-Man, as Peter Parker is learning the responsibility that comes along with being a new, super-powered hero in New York City, just as he’s being accepted into Horizon High, a high school for brilliant young scientific minds. He struggles with the duality of his social life at school and hiding his secret identity from everyone including his best friend Harry Osborn, who attends the competing Osborn Academy for geniuses. As Peter embraces his alter-ego and takes on super villains such as Vulture, Lizard, Doctor Octopus and Sandman, he watches his hero lifestyle come between his personal relationships and struggles to keep Harry from landing on the wrong side of the law.

The creative team includes executive producers Alan Fine (“Marvel’s The Avengers”), Dan Buckley (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”), Joe Quesada (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”), Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Cort Lane (“Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man”), and Eric Radomski (“Spawn,” “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”); co-executive producers Stan Lee (“Spider-Man”) and Stephen Wacker (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”); supervising producers Kevin Shinick (“Robot Chicken,” “Mad”) and Marsha Griffin (“Transformers Prime”); consulting producers Dan Slott (“Spider-Man: Big Time,” “The Superior Spider-Man”), Kevin Burke and Chris “Doc” Wyatt (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man”); and supervising director Philip Pignotti (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”). Check out the link above for a new “Marvel’s Spider-Man” promo spot and voice cast images.

Series stars Will Friedle (“Boy Meets World”), Trevor Devall (“Johnny Test”), Vanessa Marshall (“Star Wars Rebels”), David Sobolov (“Transformers: Prime”) and Kevin Michael Richardson (“The Cleveland Show”), along with Lane and Quesada, announced that the Guardians will return for a brand-new third season on Disney XD titled “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout.” The third season will find the Guardians gaining fame and fortune, but quickly knocked back on their heels after being framed by the Collector. The Guardians will travel to new universes, stage a massive sting operation inside the Nova Corps, and expose a Secret Invasion years in the making. A little bad and a little good – all in a day’s work. Check out the link above for all-new artwork for “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout.”

The LEGO Group and Marvel will team-up once again for an all-new 22-minute animated special “LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes – Guardians of the Galaxy: The Thanos Threat.” When Thanos, Ronan, Nebula and the Ravagers seek to possess the Build Stone – a powerful and creative relic – the fate of the universe depends on the Guardians of the Galaxy to protect it.

Stunt coordinator James Lew awarded for his work on the show.

“Marvel’s Luke Cage” picked up an Emmy on Sunday, as the series was awarded in the category of Stunt Coordination For a Drama Series, Limited Series or Movie. Congratulations to James Lew, who won at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards for his work as stunt coordinator on the Netflix series!

“We’re very proud of James and his incredible stunt team on ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage’ Season One. Well-deserved, and looking forward to further adventures with him,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Television.

“The Crispus Attucks Raid, set to The Wu-Tang Clan’s ‘Bring Da Ruckus,’ is one of the most electrifying moments in television history,” said series Executive Producer and showrunner, Cheo Hodari Coker. “The sheer logistics and the smack-fu of it all could not have been pulled off without someone of James Lew’s considerable experience and frankly genius. Our backs were against the wall and he came up with something that people still talk about and will always talk about,” he continued. “I’m so happy and thrilled the world is recognizing what I already know.”

“The thrill and honor of this prestigious Emmy Award is shared with my Luke Cage stunt family, crew and cast,” said Lew. “It really is about ‘coordinating’ the entire production to create meaningful and exciting action that moves the story of Luke Cage forward. The honor of being a part of this breakthrough hit series is personal to me because of my upbringing with people of color – and, being able to hire so many stunt performers that are people of color is a career highlight for me,” he added.

The Creative Arts Emmys were presented this past weekend in Los Angeles and will air September 16th on FXX Network.
