Disney XD’s popular Marvel Universe programming block will be expanded in the coming months with the debut of Avengers Assemble, which will continue the exciting and action-packed adventures of Marvel’s premiere team of superheroes. The roster will be made up of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and newcomer Falcon.
The premiere of Avengers Assemble is scheduled for Sunday, July 7 and will be heralded by a special one hour preview on Sunday, May 26 via the Marvel Universe programming block on Disney XD. The announcement was jointly made by Disney XD Worldwide VP & General Manager David Levine and Marvel Entertainment EVP & Head of Television Jeph Loeb.
It has been reported before that unlike Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Avengers Assemble will more closely resemble the continuity of the Avengers live action movies, particularly when it comes to roster. The team present in Avengers Assemble will be led by Iron Man, and will be headquartered in the Avengers Tower. Some of the villains they have to contend with will include Dr. Doom, Attuma, and Dracula himself.
