Spider-Man: The New Animated Series was a cancelled MTV animated series that is based off of the superhero of the same name. The series is a loose continuation of 2002's Spider-Man film directed by Sam Raimi, completely ignoring the events of Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3. Peter Parker/Spider-Man is voiced by Neil Patrick Harris.
- Norman Osborn is dead. Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson, and Harry Osborn attend Empire State University. Peter and Mary Jane try to establish a relationship without success. Peter's superhero duties, and later his involvement with Indira Daimonji, interfere with his romance with Mary Jane. Harry craves revenge on Spider-Man, whom he blames for the death of his father. Peter faces an assortment of other villains including the Lizard, Kraven the Hunter, Electro, and others.
The fandom behind Spider-Man: The New Animated Series also known as MTV Spider-Man is fairly small, which might be due to the cancelled status (only thirteen episodes) and the fact that a lot of Spider-Man fans disliked it. Other fans enjoyed it and wish it wasn't cancelled. Only a few fanworks are located on FanFiction.net (which fans post in same category for Spider-Man: The Animated Series) and DeviantART. Tumblr has some discussion posts.
