Don't Look For Any Avengers To Show Up In Big Hero 6

Don't Look For Any Avengers To Show Up In Big Hero 6

One half of the director duo in charge of Disney's first animated Marvel film comments on building a universe around Big Hero 6 while carving out it's own personal corner in the Marvel Universe

With the latest issue of Total Film set to be released soon, Big Hero 6 director Don Hall sat down with the magazine to discuss his movie's place (or lack thereof) in the ever expanding Marvel Universe
"Very early on, when we were collaborating with Marvel, the decision was made to intentionally not connect it to the Marvel universe.

Everybody felt like it would be great for us to take this idea of theirs and make our own universe with it. Marvel really encouraged us to do that. So there'll be no Iron Man or Captain America, and no Avengers in this world.

Our Avengers are the Big Hero 6"

Well there you have it.  Not too surprising given the fact that obviously Big Hero 6 will be operating in an amalgamated version of Earth.  But what is interesting is Hall stating they're attempting to create they're own universe with the team operating as that universe's Avengers.  What other obscure Marvel characters would you like to see pop up in any Big Hero 6 sequel or spin off?

With a cast that so far includes T. J. Miller, Jamie Chung and Maya Rudolph, Big Hero 6 was directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams and will be released on November 7, 2014

Obviously it wasn't going to be in the MCU given that it has never been mentioned by Marvel Studios.

Looks like The Incredibles so I'll check it out.

This actually has potential. I would love to see some good animated Marvel stuff, whether the characters are obscure or not.

Hmmm, maybe this will be another universe for Disney to start up and make it so that Marvel will have a multiverse later on. Or maybe I'm just over thinking it.

I'm not excepting excepting any marvel character to show up. It needs to be in it's own world and own thing.

Excuse my language but, no shit.

Except for the Marvel characters that are part of the Big Hero 6, considering that it's a Marvel property . . . .

I'm upset at Disney for not including the famous Marvel 'flip-book' before the teaser trailer...and the movie posters...and probably the tons of toys that will be out for release and Christmas purchase.

Obvious news. I think Marvel would have trouble explaining the animated continuity of this new film.
