The below-mentioned Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor, who voiced Harry, did the voice of Spider-Man in ''[[VideoGame/SpiderManBattleForNewYork Spider-Man: Battle for New York]]'' and the aforementioned ''Friend or Foe'', making Josh as Spidey and James as Harry a literal role reversal.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Unlike most cases of the trope, there was no malice behind the cancellation of the show, just poorly timed legalities. After Disney's purchase of Marvel, Sony gave up the broadcasting rights of airing Spider-Man TV shows during negotiations to keep their film rights (Which are obviously far more lucrative). Since they still technically owned the show, Disney would have had to pay ''Sony'' to continue producing it.

** Weisman wanted using Wilson Fisk, AKA ComicBook/TheKingpin, as a BigBad on the show, but was unable to. This is due to the fact that, while the character originated as a Spider-Man villain, Marvel [[RoguesGalleryTransplant now has him officially classified as the arch-enemy of]] ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}, whom Sony did not have the rights to. As a result, the character Tombstone was used as an {{expy}} of sorts.
