Sure we all heard Mr Loeb mentioning it couple times, but we all doubted that Marvel’s upcoming Avengers Assemble animated series will be, really, a sequel to the soon to end, excellent, Avengers Earth Mightiest Heroes. However, it now seems that, as fans, we jumped the gun. Man of Action(Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joseph Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle), who have recently been revealed as the Executive producers for the upcoming show, confirmed that Avengers Assemble will not contradict Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and while different in tone, it will serve as a TRUE continuation of the current show.
From Man Of Action: “It will continue much of what the movie started, it’ll be slightly different from Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. It’s really going to focus on the core characters… but it is not some kind of drastic change from Earth’s Mightiest Heroes into Marvel’s Avengers Assemble. Everything that’s established in [Earth’s Mightiest Heroes] and just running from that point on. It’s like Bendis’ Avengers going into Marvel NOW! Avengers… Everything that happened in Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, we’re going to keep consistency from that, to the new show.”
when talking about the animation style of the new Show, Man of action replied: “Marvel, with the success of the movie, is really focused in on this show, making sure that everything in it is top-notch. It’s really going to be a remarkably different type of animation than what you’ve seen earlier coming out of any Marvel property.”
So does this mean in avengers Assemble, the skrull invasion had happened? It seems so, and hopefully we will get a conclusion to Thor’s suture act that was left unresolved in the current EMH seires. All in all, this definitely sound promising!
And for those worried that the show will be similar to Ultimate spider-man, especially that now Man of Action is involved, i will say that, if anything we’ve heard is true, the show will be nothing like the any previous Marvel animated series. After Avengers movie success, and after Fans outcry over Ultimate spider-man cartoon tone, i am hearing that Marvel has learned its lesson, and knows, now, what fans want from an animated series.
