From the Press Release
Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man makes its Disney Channel debut in a special one-hour Halloween event on Saturday, October 5, at 9pm/8c. This brand new prime time animation special features a never-before-seen team-up with Blade, the fan favorite vampire hunter; Jack Russell, aka Werewolf by Night; The Living Mummy; Frankenstein’s Monster; and Man-Thing. United together in animation for the first time, Spider-Man and his monstrous allies, the Howling Commandos, take on one of the biggest Halloween villains of all time, Dracula!
This landmark Marvel event also features a star-studded voice cast, including Disney Channel star Ross Lynch (Austin & Ally, Teen Beach Movie) as Jack Russell; Terry Crews (The Expendables) as Blade; and Oded Fehr (The Mummy) as The Living Mummy.
“This is the biggest event in Ultimate Spider-Man history,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “We’ve brought Spidey together with our greatest supernatural heroes and some of the hottest names to voice them. We’re hoping families turn down the lights and turn up the volume for our spookiest special yet, courtesy of Ultimate Spider-Man!”
The episode will re-air the following week within the weekly Marvel Universe block on Disney XD on Sunday, October 13, at 11am/10c.
