Disney is hoping to feature the two web-slingers in the next season of Spider-Man on Disney XD in order to capitalize on their recent films.
The Disney XD animated show Spider-Man is a hit for the network. So much so that it has been renewed for a third season. Marvel has announced that it will feature Spider-Man’s greatest foe, Venom. Furthermore, the plot will revolve around Venom summoning an unknown threat from his symbiote home planet. This could mean that we will not only see the likes of Carnage but, hopefully, the rest of Venom’s insane offspring will make an appearance.

For those unfamiliar with what I’m referring to, there is a storyline where Venom unwillingly sires Symbiote children that become his strongest foes. Although it doesn’t seem like this is the story the show will be exploring. Still, it’s not outside the realm of possibilities that we could see his “children” in another form.
Fan favorites unite
Disney XD senior vice president Marc Buhaj is enthusiastic about featuring two of Marvel’s biggest stars.
We are excited to have Spider-Man and Venom leading this brand-new chapter. These two characters are fan favorites and the Marvel Animation team has delivered a smart, action-packed season for a new generation. We’re grateful for the opportunity to further expand the world of ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ with Venom and continue fresh, heroic storytelling with this third season order.
Marvel is also excited about the new season. Cort Lane, senior vice president at Marvel Animation stated:
This is the most epic conflict in the history of Marvel Animation. We planted the seeds in two seasons of Marvel’s Spider-Man and three seasons of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but you don’t need to have watched them to be blown away by this all-out symbiote invasion. While a ton of guest heroes will be on hand, Peter Parker’s special link to Venom makes him the only hero who can tip the scales to save humanity.
Fans still have the rest of season two before they get to see Venom in all his glory. Season two is slated to continue in September of this year. However, they won’t have to wait long as season three premieres in spring of 2020.
