Two New Marvel Shows Announced by Disney XD
Walt Disney’s action oriented channel, Disney XD, has just announced the premieres of two new animated series from the Marvel Universe programming block: Marvel’s Avengers Assemble and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. The announcement was made at the New York Comic Con by Disney Worldwide VP and General Manager David Levine. The two shows are currently in production and are both scheduled to air in summer of 2013 on Disney XD.
“Fans who enjoy the cinematic thrills of Marvel’s The Avengers and Hulk will be thrilled with the new Marvel series, which are the ultimate blend of action, adventure, humor, and above all great storytelling that perfectly aligns with boys’ interests,” said Levine. ”The Marvel Universe block on Disney XD brings together the greatest super heroes on the planet to the delight of kids and families worldwide.”
The two new shows are expected to tie in closely with the movie versions of the characters in order to unify Marvel’s brands across different media. In fact, it is rumored to be the reason why Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes was cancelled even though it has been performing well in the ratings.
