Avengers Assemble to Animate Movie Cap, Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk


Avengers Assemble to Animate Movie Cap, Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk

While Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes has done a really good job at bringing the Avengers to 2D animated life, it doesn’t use the version of The Avengers that was portrayed in the recent blockbuster film. And with the overwhelming success of the film, it’s not surprising that Marvel and Disney would want to use that version of the Avengers in other media as well, as a way of unifying and further establishing the brand. It’s arguably the biggest reason why Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is going to be ending soon, and will be replaced with Avengers Assemble, a new cartoon based on the superteam that uses the movie version’s Avengers.

Jeph Loeb (Batman: The Long Halloween) had some things to say about the new series:

“The Avengers movie has been the ambassador to the world for the Marvel Universe so we want a show that has the feel and the tone and the incredible adventures like that movie. So the next project that we’re working on — and this is down in our lab, top secret, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents protecting us at all costs — is Avengers Assemble, which will be a brand new and really extraordinary looking animated series dealing with the Avengers in that same world… It’s safe to say that we’re looking at a show that more closely echoes the tone and the feel of the movie.”

The new series will feature animated versions of the movie’s Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Hulk. A notable addition is Falcon, who will serve as the “new guy” in the team.
