Here is more confirmation that Freshman Year is dealing with a multiverse version of Peter, rather than serving as a prequel to Homecoming.


I'm still not really interested in this show personally yet. But at least what they're doing makes sense if it isn't connected to the version of Peter we already know from the MCU.

Eh, it’s Spider-Man and except for those Funko Head cartoons I’ll watch anything that has SM in it.

The TV rights for Spider-Man are very messy. The contractual status as of 2014 leaked back when everything else was leaking out of Sony. Sony had the rights to:
  • Develop and produce live action or animated theatrical motion pictures
  • Live-action television series
  • Animated television series with episodes longer than 44 minutes
Marvel had the rights to make animated television series with episodes shorter than 44 minutes, which this will presumably be.

Whether that is still the status quo or not, I'm not sure. Given how intertangled Marvel and Sony are with the current state of affairs for the character, I can't imagine either side is making moves that the other side isn't okay with.
