Okay, I’m pretty on top of things in the Marvel animated slate… but somehow I’m a bit out of the loop.
Apparently, way back on March 4th it was announced that a new Avengers: Earths Mightiest Heroes animated series would be airing in 2011. Somehow I missed this. In fact, there’s even a trailer online:
Ummm… holy shit?
This looks pretty fun! And it would even appear that a “micro series” featuring back stories for the individual heroes would begin airing this fall. Supposedly 52 episodes have already been ordered, and with an all star cast, this looks like a very cool series.
Unfortunately, though… apparently Spectactular Spider-Man and Wolverine and the X-Men have both been cancelled. It would appear good news always comes with bad. These were two of my favorite animated series in a long time… bummer. Hopefully Avengers can fill the void.
