[[http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=14223 Unfortunately for fans, Sony returned the rights for TV adaptations of Spider-Man]] [[ScrewedByTheLawyers and the staff couldn't continue]], leaving the series on a majorly bittersweet cliffhanger.[[note]]In the first place, Sony returned their animation rights to focus on the films. But after ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' underperformed and left the franchise's future in question, Sony ended up sharing film rights with Marvel Studios, making the whole ordeal pointless.[[/note]] After Disney's acquisition of Marvel, the latter went on to create a new animated series in Creator/DisneyXD's ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}''.

For those who either miss or missed out watching this show on TV, it has become one of the few ''Spider-Man'' TV shows to have all its episodes released on DVD, and the first one to receive a Blu-ray release. Strangely, it is one of the few Spider-Man cartoons to be absent from Netflix in Canada, despite being among the most popular.

At first, it simply made him slightly more ruthless and convinced him to lie to protect it. But apparently, it took over completely during his second confrontation with the Sinister Six, given that he doesn't remember the battle afterwards, he didn't make a single quip during it, and he nearly killed Doc Ock before Captain Stacy told him not to.

* TookALevelInBadass - Eddie Brock returns in the second season with what seems to be his own mechanical webshooters, and, more importantly, enough ninja skills to reliably track Spidey across the city and mislead him into thinking that Venom is back ''before'' actually reuniting with the symbiote.

* DownerEnding - Thanks to the cancellation of the series, we're stuck with the downer season 2 ending as the last episode of the series. [[spoiler:John Jameson is still driven mad with power. Eddie is driven insane from losing the symbiote. The Connors lost their jobs due to Miles Warren blackmailing them. Warren is now solely in charge of the science lab. The symbiote is still running around somewhere. Black Cat hates Spider-Man. Mark Allen is still stuck as Molten Man. Mysterio, Kraven, Hammerhead, and even Tombstone are still loose. The Rhino specs are still on the streets. Peter breaks up with Liz, who now (deservedly?) hates his guts. Worst of all, Peter and Gwen finally admit they love each other, except Harry overhears and ends up tricking Gwen into staying with him after he sees his father's demise. Gwen is probably miserable, staying with Harry only because she thinks that he may go back on Globulin Green if she leaves. Peter is filled with heartbreak over losing Gwen, despair over the hatred he has spurned for Spider-Man in Harry, and guilt over killing his best friend's dad. [[KarmaHoudini And Norman Osborn isn't even dead; in fact, he's taking a nice vacation to the Tropics!]] The only character who got a totally happy ending here and deserved it is Flash Thompson.]]
* DramaticIrony - Peter sees Jameson is calling him and doesn't pick up his phone, presuming that he's just going to yell about not getting pictures; instead he's calling to let Peter know Aunt May had a heart attack.
** To those [[ItWasHisSled who indeed knew this already,]] the implied dramatic irony of making us love her so was subverted by avoiding [[TheGwenStacy Gwen Stacy's arc.]]
