Avengers Assemble


I am a big fan of all thing Marvel (ok, thats not actually true, Howard The Duck made me want to vomit).

Recently I've picked up some of their straight to DVD animated releases (Planet Hulk, Hulk Vs, Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow) and LOVED them, great to see comic books brought to the screen and for them to be represented so faithfully to the original material.

Along with recent TV show X-Men: Evolution & Wolverine and the X-Men, the marvel animated universe has become something I have grown to enjoy emmensely.

The main reason for this is because they are made in house at Marvel Animation studios.
Having their own studio really does help keep the feel of the comics regardless of the animation style used.

Yesterday Marvel announced their newest TV series:

Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes

From the press release
"The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" - Further aligning the strength of Marvel's hugely popular characters and stories with the burgeoning Disney XD brand and global reach, an all-new animated series, "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes," will debut in fall 2010 on Disney XD and Beginning with the "Iron Man" and "Incredible Hulk" movies in 2008, the release of "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" follows Marvel's overall "Avengers Assemble" strategy introducing the greatest heroes in the Marvel Universe through various content platforms, including the upcoming feature films "Iron Man 2" in May of 2010, "Thor" in May of 2011 and "Captain America" in July of 2011, all building up to the Avengers theatrical film in 2012.

Its also worth noting that these upcoming films are Marvel Studios' self-produced films.
Everything is better when its kept in house it seems.
