New Animated Series AVENGERS ASSEMBLE Will Have The "Tone & Feel" Of The Movie

Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes may have gotten the ax, but we can look forward to a brand new show, which according to Jeph Loeb will be based more on Joss Whedon's The Avengers movie..

In an interview with TV Guide Magazine, Marvel's executive vice president and head of television Jeph Loeb discusses plans for some future Marvel animated series. Coming our way in 2013 are Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. and a new show which is said to be closer in tone to the recent Avengers movie, Avengers Assemble.

Says Loeb..

The Avengers movie has been the ambassador to the world for the Marvel Universe so we want a show that has the feel and the tone and the incredible adventures like that movie. So the next project that we're working on — and this is down in our lab, top secret, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents protecting us at all costs — is Avengers Assemble, which will be a brand new and really extraordinary looking animated series dealing with the Avengers in that same world.

We're still very early on in the process and we don't give away too much. It's safe to say that we're looking at a show that more closely echoes the tone and the feel of the movie.

Loeb also reveals that Falcon will be a large part of the show, and act as the "eyes of the viewer", being the newest member of the team. Apparently he is to be a bit younger than the others. As for what style of animation we can expect, Loeb says he wants the show to take things to the "next level" - "In the same kind of way that Ultimate Spider-Man pushed the boundaries in terms of a unique combination of 2D and CG and using top-flight writers and voice actors, that's what we're looking for". Well, I'm sure this will be met with a mixture of "oh cool" and "What the Hell was wrong with EMH?" But at least we can look forward to this replacement, and by the sounds of it there is a chance it may even be in canon with the movie. Click the link below to check out the full interview.

Remember the days when we'd have 5+ seasons of a good show? Now we're subjected to a team of schizophrenics who can't seem to make up there mind about what to deliver.

My 5 yr old Niece LOOOVES Ultimate Spiderman. She thinks it's HILARIOUS. I dont mind that one bit.
CaptainObvious - 6/12/2012, 7:47 AM
How uninspired.
Shaman - 6/12/2012, 7:48 AM
Well... it can't possibly be any worse than Ultimate Spider-man. But they have HUGE shoes to fill, much like a new X-Men series would have after the brilliant Wolverine and the X-Men. Going with the movie roster plus the addition of Falcon is a good thing IMO (Falcon being my son's favorite Avenger) but what pisses me off the most is that Ms Marvel was JUST included in EMH and now she'll be thrown back onto the shelf. She deserves way more spotlight than what she's given.

Fail for cancelling EMH, especially in favor of a cartoon to echo the MCU tone. It's not a good idea. The fanboy logic-knots alone make me hate this. They're gonna rehash all the crap EMH just did. Don't fix what ain't broke!

@Gambit89 - "I hope they make Cap the leader in this one and not Iron Man. I'm not really liking how Iron man is becoming the Wolverine of the Avengers. Front and center of everything. Should be at least Cap and IM if not Cap"
-- glad to see others are also noticing that over selling of IM for that matter.

I'm not sure of this. Many of the two episode arcs of the series had better action than the movie.

@blackandyellow - Awesome! lol!
Spock - 6/12/2012, 7:54 AM
I don't know if we really need a Hulk & the Agents of SMASH to go with the new Avengers Cartoon, I would of like to see a NOVA Corps to exposure the more Cosmic elements. We got a little bit of that during the Phoenix saga during the X-Men & the shortly lived Silver Surfer.
soforizo - 6/12/2012, 7:55 AM
@Spidey91 - The art looks better.
MadTitan - 6/12/2012, 7:55 AM
starting with the episodes showcasing more of the rest of the members i have grown to like more EMH specially the Skrull invasion angle and the traitor/Spidey appearance, but now that they've cancelled it in favor of this close movie tie in tone i think i would prefer EMH than this upcoming show.
elessarundomiel2382 - 6/12/2012, 7:56 AM
Avengers line up

Cap, Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Falcon, Black Panther, Ms. Marvel, Vision, Namor, Antman and Wasp
soforizo - 6/12/2012, 7:56 AM

R888 - 6/12/2012, 7:56 AM

Spock - 6/12/2012, 7:57 AM

I would still say replace the Hulk show with a Nova Corps, just as DC did a Green Latern show which introduce the Red Laterns to a broader audience--nicely done DC!
Spock - 6/12/2012, 8:01 AM
@ Spidey91 can u say old school He-Man on the left side!
Spidey91 - 6/12/2012, 8:02 AM
^^LOL xD
toekneemango - 6/12/2012, 8:02 AM
Should have gone with Black Panther or Vision instead of Falcon - or a female member of the team.
Tymminator - 6/12/2012, 8:03 AM
That damn banner is hopping on every blasted nerve I have! CBM GET RID OF IT!
soforizo - 6/12/2012, 8:12 AM
Hawkeye is wayyy better in all respects in EMH than in the movie. Also Captain America's is better in EMH, in regards to his fighting abilities.
MadTitan - 6/12/2012, 8:12 AM

to hell with that, it's already been discussed and debated numerous times and before IM hit it big Iron Man was just a 3rd rate character before being lifted from that level. so is RDJ whose on his way low in his career at that point where in donning that outfit/suit favors him a lot and had his big comeback. The Avengers hit it big not just because of one character but all members being the best selling point and the films own merit. pass that stage it's about time we get back to the comic book roots where Cap the bonafide leader of the team take that position and let the team function as how it should be not everything must be about IronMan/TonyStark/RDJ.
