At the Marvel Television panel, Jeph Loeb talked about how Avengers Assemble is the spritiual continuation of avengers EMH, and how the show is aimed at a broader audience than before (again confirming AgentX report).
Loeb then went ahead and showed a test footage of the show (again like agentx reported) and below is a description of the clip from Marvel’s Strommy:
” We’re watching the animation test for Marvel’s Avengers Assemble now! This is the first time anyone outside of Marvel has seen this!
A giant dragon thing is tearing apart Manhattan, and Iron Man’s flying a Quinjet with the Avengers in it! Hulk just pushed Thor aside and told him “you’ll be lucky if there’s anything left to smash”, then jumped out before him
Hawkeye and Cap are flying in on mini jets!
Iron Man launches a barrage of missiles at the monster, knocking him down–but he’s still getting back up for Round Two! “
No news regarding the release date of the series has been revealed.
Comicbookressources wrote the below description of what went down on this portion of the panel:
“Now let’s talk about the elephant in the room,” Loeb said. “I know a lot of you are big fans of ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.’” Alluding to internet rumors—”a lot of things on the internet are not true”—Loeb said “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” was always going to be 52 episodes, an animation industry standard order. “When that show concluded itself, we had an issue on our hands, what to do next.” Loeb compared the transition to what’s seen with a new creative team in comics.
He formally announced the long rumored “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” which continues the previous continuity, and showed a brief animation test. Fin Fang Foom is ravaging New York, and Iron Man and Thor are first on the scene, followed in short order by the Hulk. Captain America and Hawkeye join the fight, completing the team.
In the case of both clips, Loeb cautioned that the footage and voices were not final, and the completed animation would be “even snazzier.”
Whether Avengers Assemble is really a sequel to Avengers EMH remains to be seen. But we will make sure to ask AgentX on how true this bit of info is. Keep checking us back for more info regarding Agengers Assemble.
