PAUL DINI REVEALS MORE ABOUT THE ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN ANIMATED SERIES
In an interview with MTV Splash Page, the writer best known for his work on projects such as Batman: The Animated Series, Justice League and the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game has revealed that he’s part of the creative team behind the upcoming animated TV series which hits Disney XD in Fall 2011.
On The Creative Team Behind The Series:
” We’re really all just going to go off each other’s energy. Brian’s work is a great part of the inspiration for the series, and the Man Of Action writers are going to handle the bulk of the episode scripting. Everything is going to be produced under the watchful eye of Jeph Loeb. We had an early meeting last week with myself, Jeph, and a few of the directors and designers, and I think everybody’s on the same page with what we want the show to look like and the feel of the show.”

Oni Press, publisher of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series, is the latest example of a small press property turned major media phenomenon thanks to the combination of a great book and a carefully managed movie deal (the sixth volume in the series has just sold through its 100,000-copy first printing).
