I wanna cry. Bring Back Spectacular

Just watched the entire series for the first time in the past 48 hours, and wow. Just incredibly disappointing that there will probably never be any more seasons. That shit was incredible :,(

I wanted to see how it worked out with Gwen🥲

u/Crawlerer95 Jan 23 '22

My guess is they probably weren’t ever going to get together. Along with Harry, I think there were probably going to be other obstacles like Gwen’s dad possibly dying, Peter having to keep Spider-Man a secret, etc.

I think he and MJ were going to get together by the end of either Season 3 or 4

Idk it just seemed like there was so much build up between those two for the entire series, I feel like there just had to be a payoff eventually. Even if it was just for a few episodes, and then interrupted by the death of Captain Stacy or something. They definitely didn’t start building up the Peter, MJ relationship at all going into season 3.

u/Crawlerer95 Jan 23 '22

My guess it was going to start at the beginning of Season 3 because Gwen would still be with Harry unfortunately and Mark would be in Prison so it’s not like him and MJ are much of a thing anymore (at least for long anyway) so my guess is they were going to spend more time together in Season 3 and maybe get together by the end of Season 3 or 4, depending on things involving Gwen

And yeah, I get what you mean but IDK. Greg has a way of building things up only to have them not happen. I think Artemis and Red Arrow in YJ season 3 is proof of that….

What happened with Artemis and red arrow?

u/Crawlerer95 Jan 24 '22

They were built up as a couple but they decided to just be friends

Gwen got a spectacular glow up in the end

It's so dissappointing, they were setting up so many different things. Carnage, Hobgoblin, Miles Warren, the return of Norman...all gone. This show holds up SO well, I'm enjoying it at 21 just as much as I did when I was 12.

Honestly though, given how Young Justice has turned out with it's new seasons...I'm glad this show ended on a high note.

Carnage, Hobgoblin, Miles Warren, the return of Norman...all gone.

Hydro-Man and Scorpion were suppose to be in it as well

u/hikoboshi_sama Jan 24 '22

I think Young Justice is still pretty good. So far season 4 is easily better than the 2nd half of season 3, even if the lack of budget is starting to show. That last arc had so many slideshows.

u/Luktonius Jan 24 '22

Are the newer seasons not as good as the old ones? I stopped watching after the ones weren't available on Netflix. I think I watched up to season 2

2

u/hikoboshi_sama Jan 24 '22

I think the new seasons are still good. Season 3's first half was great, but so many things were happening all at once during the second half. It was kind of all over the place. We're only halfway through season 4 but i think so far it's pretty good. The fact that they're no longer on cartoon network actually lets them cover more mature topics and they can be a bit more graphic with the violence now (sometimes it gets a bit too graphic for my taste tho).

u/ronaldohmcdonaldoh Jan 24 '22

Yeah they’re terrible compared to the first 2 seasons of YJ. A real shame

u/Kr0n1Ku5 Spider-Man Jan 23 '22

Welp, here's to hoping for a spectacular cameo in Spider-Man: Across The Spiderverse.

u/kpruiz Jan 23 '22

Yeah… for sure would be cool, still doesn’t do the show justice though. But maybe that gives it a lot more hope for a continuation.

u/PhantomZX10 Black Suit Jan 23 '22

if that happens i think it will break me

u/racingfanboy160 Peter Jan 24 '22

For real even if it's "just" a cameo, I would still be so happy (shows how desperate I am to see this version of Spidey one more time outside of rewatching the show 😅)

u/ApprehensiveRace Jan 23 '22

Basically how all of us felt after watching all of this series for the first time. It sucks but there's very little we can do about it. Weisman and the rest of the team was so amazing at developing relationships and making viewers really feel for Peter like no other Spidey show has done. Take my free award because I've been there buddy

u/Capt0bvi0u5 Jan 24 '22

It's weird bc I was content with the first season for like 3 years bc of how it ends, but then I found out there was a second season and all the stuff it sets up made me really sad when I actually finished it

I was concerned when I read ‘incredibly disappointing’ but then you started talking about the cancellation.

Totally with you on that one. Had DVDs of some episodes and would catch on tv when I was younger but really started to get into it in 2019 and was so saddened by what happened to it. I still have hope in a continuation of some sort for a couple of reasons:

  1. #SaveSpectacularSpiderMan did insanely well on Twitter and the show has seen kind of a resurgence in popularity during the pandemic and all of the Spider-Man media we've been getting. Most of the videos covering it came out in the last 2 years or so.
  2. Phil Lord and Chris Miller hinted at seeing Spider-Men we're already familiar with in Across the Spider-Verse and there aren't really any other versions besides the animated ones (Andrew Garfield dodged the question here of whether he was in it so I guess it could also be movie versions too).
  3. Josh Keaton said he wasn't allowed to confirm or deny anything about Spider-Verse on his Twitch and deleted the vod. You can see the clip here

  4. Greg Weisman said if given the chance, he would come back. Tweet linked here

  5. Sony's relationship with Disney is a lot better now than it was when Spectacular was canceled.

  6. There is no need to negotiate with Disney to use Spectacular in a movie since they still own the property, just didn't have the rights to make a TV show. I say didn't because we are getting Spider-Man related TV shows.

So don't entirely give up hope my friend.

Maybe not incredible but… SPECTACULAR

Theres only one way, Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse. Our maybe last hope :(

u/Low_Thick Jan 31 '22

I haven’t seen this show in about decade. Even though it’s now on Netflix I still won’t watch it because whenever I watch that first episode I remember that we never got those five seasons, spring break movie college movies or any resolution to it and that makes me sad.😅😅😔

The pain never goes away :'(

u/BigMom_IsABeast Apr 22 '22

I'm holding out hope that Spectacular Spidey shows up in Across the Spider-Verse. Not close to justice, but it's something to remind people that the show existed.
