Disney XD released a new, two-minute clip from behind the scenes of this weekend's Ultimate Spider-Man Father's Day episode, which airs Saturday morning on the cable network. Hosted by Steve Blum, who played Wolverine in Wolverine & The X-Men as well as other video games and animated series over the last several years. Blum guest-stars on this weekend's show, bringing Wolverine into the Ultimate animated universe.
The episode appears to revolve around a body swap between Spidey and the ol' Canucklehead, something that's oddly appropriate for father's day, given that it was the premise of the '80s comedy Like Father, Like Son (starring Dudley Moore and a pre-insanity Kirk Cameron). It also gives the voice actors a chance to play with their interpretations of the characters a bit, given that suddenly you've got somebody who's the same guy, but in a new body, and that'll require all kinds of bending over in terms of performance.
