IT'S 'THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN' TO THE RESCUE

Kids' WB! on The CW Announces Official Title for Marvel Super Hero's Animated Series from Culver Entertainment

BURBANK, CA (JUNE 18, 2007) - "The Spectacular Spider-Man" is the official title of the super hero's new animated series coming to the Kids' WB! on The CW, it was announced today by Kids' WB! Senior Vice President and General Manager Betsy McGowen.

"The use of the 'Spectacular' title is an homage to Marvel's wildly popular series of Spider-Man comics, and is very reflective of the enthusiasm and high regard we have for the production," McGowen said. "This promises to be a stand-out animated series that will perfectly complement both Sony Entertainment's box office-shattering films and the amped-up action on Kids' WB! every Saturday."

Riding the crest of Sony's blockbuster "Spider-Man 3," the new animated series -- slated to premiere on Kids' WB! in early 2008 -- picks up the world-renowned web-slinger's mythology at the beginning of his hero's journey as a not-so-typical 16-year-old with new-found powers engaging the multi-leveled pressures of teenage life while combating bigger, badder super-villains in the real world.

Greg Weisman ("Gargoyles," "The Batman") is supervising producer on "The Spectacular Spider-Man." Victor Cook ("Hellboy: Blood and Iron") is producer/supervising director. The series is produced by Culver Entertainment.
