He then introduced "Ultimate Spider-Man," which will premiere next year on Disney XD. He showed sketches of Spider-Man and Spider-Ham. Fans cheered when Loeb mentioned that Paul Dini will be writing for the show. He also said "Ben10" creators Man of Action Studios will also contribute, the studio of Joe Casey, Steven T. Seagle, Duncan Rouleau, and others. Bendis will serve as Creative Consultant.

Loeb then played a sizzle for "USM," with behind-the-scenes footage featuring some of the show's talent. Stan Lee came up first, grinning "Spider-Man!" The first bit of animation was a split screen of MJ splitting carrots while Spidey fights off bad guys, talking on the phone. Following some action, Peter is shown sewing his costume, looking to the camera and saying, "What?" Spidey fights Venom, and there were several comic-esque visual effects

Drake Bell spoke about playing Spider-Man, "It's great playing a super-hero who's so iconic."

Stan Lee plays Stan the Janitor and will have a recurring role.

Nick Fury is played by Chi McBride and will mentor him into the "Ultimate Spider-Man."

Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson. Coulson will also be the principal.

JK SImmons = JJJ, as he is on film, and Stephen Webber is Norman Osborn, "a powerful industrial with a grudge with Spider-Man."

As the footage ended, Loeb said "everyone who was involved in the casting process chose one person." Drake Bell then joined Loeb on stage. Bell said he was seeing the sizzle reel for the first time and was overjoyed to see his voice with the character. Loeb then premiered the trailer for the show, as well.

J. Jonah Jameson began with a voice over condemning Spidey, as the web-slinger himself fights Elektro, then Venom, followed by Doctor Doom. He also teams up with Avengers and is chased through the NYC subway by an octopus-like robot.

"Our hope is that it looks different from any Spider-Man show you've seen before," Loeb said once the trailer concluded.

"Being a fan of the comics and something we've never had in animation before is Spider-Ham," Bell said, adding that the snorts were a lot of fun.

Artists contributing the look of the show included Stuart Immonen, Humberto Ramos, and Joe Quesada, who provided drawings of the characters to the animation team. Loeb acknowledged the late Spider-Ham creator Mike Wieringo.
