Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment is readying the release of the MTV computer animated series Spiderman as a two disc set.
When a nasty bite by a genetically altered spider endows teenager Peter Parker with miraculous, arachnid-like powers, his death-defying heroism wins him admiration from those in need. But being a superhero has its drawbacks especially as freshman in college! As Peter gains the trust of his close friends Mary Jane Watson / MJ and Harry Osborn, the police call him a vigilante. Struggling to lead a normal life even as he juggles academics, work, love and various forces of super-villains and relentless criminals, Peter meets the challenge by exercising his superhero powers for the good of all to save mankind from evil.
The series will be presented in widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS sound and will feature audio commentaries, pop-up factoids, a blooper reel, featurettes, abandoned previsualisations a photo gallery and a teaser for the upcoming video game.
The set will be priced at $29.99 for a January 13th release.
