“The Avengers” Comes to TV

Written on October 13, 2010 – 11:56 am | by gpelkofski

Marvel Comics’s premiere superhero team, The Avengers, is headed to Disney XD next week as an ongoing cartoon series.

For the past month, Marvel Comics has been showing five-minute micro-episodes on their website which have been replaying on Disney XD all week.

The show premieres next Wednesday at 8:30 PM with an hour-long episode.

Marvel has also announced a four-issue miniseries to complement the television show, which is set to be in stores in November.

I assume all this has been done to build excitement for the coming Avengers movie in 2012. Well, that’s a job well-done.

On a personal note, I won an eBay auction last week to have lunch with the Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics, Joe Quesada, at the New York Comic Con on Friday. Here’s a picture of us the Marvel booth at the convention. Can you say “nerdgasm”?

    Now this is interesting, I’m curious as to how they will do this show, but as my own personal experience has been, I have much more preferred the DC animated shows, Batman, Superman, Teen Titans, Justice League, above the Marvel toons. With the boom of Marvel being acquired by Disney, this could be a decent show, but I’m going to wait to comment on it.

    I don’t see how this will build anything for the movie. The last few of these Marvel animated offerings were horrible. The animated Hulk (Planet Hulk?) movie was unwatchable. Marvel should stop trying to do everything and focus on doing one thing well. Aren’t they already busy killing Spiderman?
