Buffy the Vampire Slayer alumnus Eliza Dushku is rumored to be part of the voice cast for Disney XD’s upcoming Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. series, based on a comment made by voice actor Adrian Pasdar, who’s currently voicing Iron Man on Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man:

“The funny thing is if people were to actually visit these animation rooms and see the guys and the girls that are doing it, with the exception of Eliza, who’s a stunning beauty, the rest of us, we don’t look quite as good as the animation characters they draw for us,” Pasdar said in a recent interview with IGN.

Stanley Tucci joins Captain America: The First Avenger as Dr. Abraham Erskine

Captain America, the famed super soldier hero of the Marvel universe, was once just a regular guy named Steve Rogers. That is, until he met Dr. Abraham Erskine, creator of the very super soldier serum that made Captain America into the super hero that we know him as today. As the role of this individual and relationship is so incredibly important to the mythos of the Disney character, Marvel Studios was sure to select a big name for the spot, looking to Oscar nominated actor Stanley Tucci. Tucci joins a cast already teaming with stars, like Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving, and Hayley Atwell. The Paramount Pictures film is just about a year away, hitting theaters July 22, 2011.

Disney and Marvel are BFF

Disney and Marvel are BFF

It’s been about a month since Disney and Marvel officially reported the House of Mouse purchased the House of Spidey. So how have things fared so far, and what kind of changes can we expect? Well, according to Bob Iger, Disney’s CEO, any immediate impact would be small; “The essence of Marvel, that lives mainly in its comic books, will remain as is” — meaning Marvel’s would basically remain as it currently is. However, it’s important to note that this doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be this way forever. We could still be witness to a “Dinseyfied” Marvel Universe in the not too distant future. What type of future do you see for the partnership?
