Porgs 101: Everything You Need to Know About the Adorable ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Creatures
Even their name is cute. Porgs — teensy, tiny, and be-feathered — are the latest creature to enter the sprawling sci-fi “Star Wars” universe, though we can only hope they prove to be as charming as Bb-8, and less like Jar Jar Binks. Inspired by the real-life inhabitants of a crucial location from this year’s upcoming “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the new animals instantly captured hearts after being introduced with not much in the way of fanfare.

Lovingly created by “The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson himself, the months since they were first introduced to the Star Wars faithful have only increased demand to know still more about the screaming sea birds and their place in the mythos.

‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ Showrunner Kevin Shinick Focuses on “Science and Relationships”

  • Collider.com
When Emmy-winning writer Kevin Shinick pitched his one-word idea to executives for Marvel's Spider-Man, he knew he had their attention. The word: Science. It's just as much a part of Peter Parker's DNA as the radioactive spider bite that gifted him his powers in the series' six-part origin story. And while Parker's scientific genius and ingenuity has long been an integral part of his decades of comic book lore, it's rarely explored earnestly in any of the superhero's many adaptations. Marvel's Spider-Man aims to rectify that with a …

Brief Teaser For Marvel’s New Spider-Man Series Confirms Summer Premiere

Coming to a close this week is Ultimate Spider-Man, which will air its final episode tomorrow, January 7th. Marvel is pulling the plug on the show to instead focus on a new effort. We don’t know too much about it just yet, but the company is planning a new animated series for Disney Xd, and as the teaser above confirms, it’ll arrive in the summer.

At only 10 seconds long, not much else is revealed in this awfully brief tease, but the confirmation of a release window is certainly exciting and nicely ties the new show in with Spider-Man: Homecoming, which swings into theaters on July 7th and stars Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr. and Michael Keaton, among others.

From what we’ve heard, Marvel’s Spider-Man, as it’s being called for now, will follow a young Peter Parker, one who’s still going through his teenage years,

Miles Morales And Spider-Gwen To Feature In New Disney Xd Spider-man Series

According to We Got This Covered, tie-in merchandising has revealed that Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen and Venom will be featured in Disney Xd's upcoming new Spider-Man cartoon.   The new show has been confirmed to follow Peter Parker, but it looks as if Miles and a spider-powered Gwen Stacy will play prominent roles.  Venom's role in the show is even more of a mystery.  Will he be a villain or a reluctant anti-hero? Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken) and  Philip Pignotti (Avengers Assemble) are serving as executive producers on the show. With Miles Morales featuring prominently in Marvel's comic line, and Sony's animated featuring focusing on the character, how long will it be before the character turns up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Disney Xd’s Upcoming Spider-Man Animated Series Will Include Miles Morales And Spider-Gwen

See Full Gallery Here

Earlier this year, we learned that Disney Xd had decided to cancel the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series in order to focus on a new Spider-Man show which would be headed up by the team of story editor Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken) and supervising director Philip Pignotti (Avengers Assemble).

The plan apparently is to focus on the “insecure yet courageous teenager Peter Parker as he learns that with great power comes great responsibility – especially when you get the strange abilities of a spider.” So, classic Spider-Man then, but some new merchandise has now surfaced which points to both Miles Morales and Spider-Gwen playing a role here. While that shouldn’t be taken as confirmation that we’ll see either of those characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s interesting that Marvel is choosing to put the spotlight on them.

We know that Miles will probably be

Marvel replacing Ultimate Spider-Man with new animated Spidey series

Marvel Animation has announced that it is set to replace Ultimate Spider-Man with a new animated Spidey series which promised to take the wall-crawler back to his roots, exploring his early years as a teen crime-fighter.

“Spider-Man is the biggest action hero in the world. He is an iconic character whose duality makes him both relatable and aspirational for the Disney Xd audience,” Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, programming and general manager for Disney Xd tells USA Today. “[It will deliver] a fresh take on a beloved classic that will engage both new and existing Spidey fans with its compelling drama, exciting action and the signature sense of comedy.”

Titled simply Spider-Man, the new series has been developed by Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken) and Philip Pignotto (Avengers Assemble) and “focuses on insecure yet courageous teenager Peter Parker as he learns that with great power comes great responsibility — especially when you get the strange abilities of a spider.

New Spider-man Animated Series Will Replace Disney Xd's Ultimate Spider-man

USA Today reveals that a new Spider-Man animated TV series is on the way which will take Peter Parker back to high school (again) to tell some fresh new stories featuring the wall-crawler. The current Disney Xd series is Ultimate Spider-Man, but that will wrap up in January after four seasons with a two-part "Graduation Day" featuring the wall-crawler battling Doctor Octopus and the Superior Sinister Six. This new take is being headed up by story editor Kevin Shinick (Robot Chicken) and supervising director Philip Pignotti (Avengers Assemble), and it will apparently focus on, "insecure yet courageous teenager Peter Parker as he learns that with great power comes great responsibility — especially when you get the strange abilities of a spider." Honestly, that doesn't sound too different to the character's current series, but chances are this one is going to ditch the goofy comedy and Family Guy style cutaways. Marc Buhaj,
