Avengers Assemble to echo the Movie

A Good Thing or Bad?

After what appears to have been a premature announcement about the cancellation of Disney XD’s The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Marvel has officially confirmed development of Avengers Assemble in a TV Guide interview with Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada and Head of Television Jeph Loeb.

Although they discussed the previously announced Marvel Animation Studios series Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Loeb offered few details about Avengers Assemble, saying, “We’re still very early on in the process and we don’t give away too much.” In fact, the two didn’t comment at all on the fate of the fan-favorite Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and when asked whether the new projects will find a home on Disney XD, Loeb replied, “I think the best answer for that would be, ‘Wouldn’t that be fantastic?’”

He did, however, confirm that Avengers Assemble is designed to reflect Marvel’s billion-dollar blockbuster. “It’s safe to say that we’re looking at a show that more closely echoes the tone and the feel of the movie,” he told the website.

The initial promo image shows the team lineup from the film — Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye — joined by comic-book mainstay the Falcon. “Falcon is going to be the eyes of the viewer,” Quesada told the website. “He’s a new member of the Avengers so he’s walking through our stories wide-eyed and with wonder and amazed to be a part of it. He’s a little younger than the rest of the cast and a little greener, so he adds an interesting dimension to the team that we think will play really well with the audience.”

Announced at Comic-Con International, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. features the Hulk, Red Hulk, Skaar, She-Hulk and A-Bomb. Eliza Dushku will provide the voice of She-Hulk.

Marvel announced Monday that Ultimate Spider-Man, which was paired with The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on Disney XD’s new Marvel Universe programming block, has been renewed for a second season.
Thanks to redvector for the submission.

Boo for Ultimate Spider-man!  They need to start over with that also. 

I like the idea of another Hulk show.  Hopefully won't be stupid either.  But agents of smash does sound stupid so far.

Holy Sh*t, I better get out of here before this web site attacks me!

That's just crap on Marvel and disney's part.. The Avengers EMH is a fantastic show.. There is nothing wrong with it.. If it isn't broken, don't try to fix it!!

The EMH show was perfect ... it drew a lot from the Avengers stories over the years and incorporated just a bit of the Ultimate universe (e.g. Nick Fury) ... the show complemented the movie without being an animated reflection of it ... 

I truly felt Marvel/Disney could do no wrong and was slowing winning me over fully from my traditional love DC ... but this is a wrong move ... hopefully it pays off 

I'll treasure the first two seasons and hopefully add them to my library soon

 So they're developing a new Avengers cartoon, but haven't announced the cancellation of the current one?  Is the cartoon world big enough for two Avengers shows at once.  After all, we had EMH & Super Hero Squad running concurrently.

Falcon sucks and cancelling EMH sucks. F-you Jeph Loeb.

I did read an interesting article somewhere else in regards to tying in Ultimate Spiderman and Avengers Assemble and rumours are swirling is because Sony and Disney will be sharing the same universe with the Spidey reboot and Avengers. DIsney and Sony had planned to have the Oscorp building in NYC in Avengers but it was too last minute to put it in. Will it be in the rumoured 3 hour Avengers director's cut? We'll see.

If it's not like the movie, I guess they think viewers are just gonna start jumping off bridges or something.

I'm willing to bet that the Falcon will show up in the movieverse as well in some form. Probably in a Future Captain America movie.

lusiphur, they announced that AEMH wasn't being renewed so this was the last season.

I'm not as down as most of you or better yet I'm hopeful that the new version is just as good if not better. I'd rather to stick closer to the comics than to the films but I guess it's cool in that we may see completely new stories

Wise, you are talking like a Marvel employee :):)
