Disney Announces The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes

Mar 4th, 2010
Animated show will debut fall 2010
Disney Channels Worldwide announced its 2010-2011 programming for Disney XD yesterday which includes animated show "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes." Here's the full description:

"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 DisneyXD.com. 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. Produced by Marvel Animation, the animated series features 52 episodes targeted at kids 9-14, starring Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Giant Man and Wasp -- who form the Avengers, a team assembled when no single hero's powers can save the world. A 20-part "micro-series" that focuses on each hero's backstory will roll out in fall 2010 on Disney XD, immediately followed by the series premiere on Disney XD in the U.S. and, shortly thereafter, around the world. Disney XD, the single largest distributor of Marvel content around the world, currently showcases approximately 20 hours of Marvel series (including "The Spectacular Spider-Man," "Fantastic Four" and "Iron Man") each week.

The problem with XD's current lineup is the fact that it's crap with the exception of Spectacular Spider-Man which hasn't even been renewed for a 3rd season yet. F4 is wannabe anime and Iron Man is wanna be cell-shaded anime with a 14 yr old Stark already Iron Man...horrible stuff.

Hmmm. Could be good. I'm a bit concerned at the target audience. Don't these people realize that older folks are interested in these characters too? Seriously, how many posters here fall into that 9-14 category? Personally, I passed that 30+ years ago. Also, let's hope they have some better animation than Marvel's previous cartoons.

@SwampDog: I hear ya bro (or sis)! I, too, passed that age many moons ago. Anyway, it's still good for the kids so I hope the series does well. Maybe then they'll give us the more grown-up Avengers!
