Spider-Man is getting his very own channel
Great news, Spider-Man fans! Your favourite superhero is getting his very own channel, so you can now watch him in action all day, every day!
Today, Disney Channels UK and Ireland announced the exciting news it will launch a Marvel Spider-Man takeover on Monday, July 3rd. The takeover will run for the course of the month on the Sky and Virgin Disney XD +1 channels and wall-to-wall Spider-Man content will be available to watch 24 hours a day.
Highlights will include the world premiere of six Spider-Man Origin shorts, as well as a Spider-Man Homecoming 15-minute movie special.
Additionally, every single episode of Ultimate Spider-Man ever made will air during the month-long takeover.
David Levine, General Manager of Disney Channels UK and Ireland said: “This is the first time that we have created a takeover dedicated to Spider-Man, arguably one of the most popular characters from the Marvel universe and one of Stan Lee’s most venerated creations.
“The wall-crawler continues to draw kids to Disney XD so what better way to pay tribute to his genius than by giving him his own channel throughout the month of July when the whole world will be going Spidey crazy.”
Marvel Spider-Man takeover will be broadcast on Disney XD +1 from July 3-30 in the UK (Sky 608 and Virgin 708).
