Marvel Launching Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Cartoon
Marvel has announced that their The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes animated series will debut this fall on their parent company’s Disney XD channel (three years after production on the 26 half-hour episodes started — cartoons take time!).
As can be seen from this promotional image, they’re pushing hard on the characters known from the (existing or upcoming) movies: Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America. Thankfully, the promo video trailer (no longer available) shows that Ant-Man/Giant-Man and the Wasp (hey! a girl!) are also included, plus there are hints of Hawkeye and Black Panther.
The animation’s nothing to write home about, nor are the voices, but it’s neat to see such well-known heroes team up. Given the target teen boy audience, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the emphasis in the trailer appears to be on pure power, with massive fights and big displays.
