Hello, Mr. Weisman,
I had a few questions about "The Spectacular Spider-Man", if you don't mind:

#1.) This question is about Hobgoblin. I always thought it was cool that sometimes we'd see the character's masked face hidden in the shadows, and we'd only see his red eyes (like on the cover for "The Amazing Spider-Man", vol. 1, #238). I thought it always looked kind of creepy. Do you think we'd see that happen from time to time on the cartoon, since we never saw that look on a Spider-Man animated series?

2.) This is in regards to the Hulk. I heard there was an early Stan Lee/Steve Ditko era story with Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk you would love to tell, should the Hulk be allowed to guest star in a future season. However, as of last week, I read on a Spider-Man website (can't remember which, sorry) that Lou Ferrigno was in talks to provide the voice for the Hulk on your cartoon. It makes sense, since he did the voice of the Hulk for the 2008 movie (which I loved and I feel was underrated among comic movie fans). However, when I checked back the next day, the article about the Hulk news was taken down and no explanation was given as to why it was removed. Was this a fan rumor that was pulled, or is it really true Mr. Ferrigno will voice the Hulk on your show? If it's not true, would you like the idea of having Mr. Ferrigno on as the Hulk if he does appear?

3.) I read that Cam Clarke (the voice of Prince Adam for the 2002 "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" cartoon series) will provide the voice for Molten Man on "The Spectacular Spider-Man". Is that true, or can you not discuss who will do the voice of Molten Man yet?

Thanks for reading, sir.

1. You're talking about a character who won't appear until Season Three. And we don't have a pick-up for Season Three.

2. The Hulk does not appear in Seasons One or Two and we don't have a pick-up for any seasons beyond that, so obviously, we're not "in talks" with ANY actors to provide a voice for that character. Particularly a character we do not have the rights to use.

3. Cam's great. I've worked with him many times before, but no, he's not voicing Molten Man. I think it's safe to say that these "sites" your "reading" are EXTREMELY unreliable. It sounds like "someone" is posting things (however briefly), pretending that he or she is posting news, when they're really just posting his or her own notions, and enjoying the reaction. These notions are bound to generate more buzz as "news" than as "notions". But it's pretty obnoxious.
