Streaming service Disney+ will add the Marvel Future Avengers anime series to its lineup this February. The first 26-episode season of the Madhouse-animated show will become available to subscribers in North America beginning February 28th. This marks the show’s debut outside of Asia.
Designed as a cross-media project, Marvel Future Avengers was announced back in February 2017. The show began airing on satellite channel Dlife and Disney XD Japan later that July. A second season was confirmed the following January, which added another 13 episodes after its July 2018 debut. An English dub produced by Studiopolis began airing on Disney XD Asia in September 2017.
Yuzo Sato, who acted as the director on Marvel Anime Ironman, helms the new show with characters designs from fellow Ironman alum Takahiro Umehara and a script penned by Disk Wars Avengers‘ Ryuu King.
Marvel Future Avengers centres around Makoto, a young boy who is granted super powers through a gene manipulation experiment. Alongside a group of other gifted youths, Makoto joins the legendary Avengers super hero team as part of their apprentice program, the Future Avengers. Together the group learns to fight the forces of evil with the help of Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and Wasp.
