SDCC '12: Disney's AVENGERS ASSEMBLE A Sequel To AVENGERS: EMH?
Speaking at the Cup O'Joe panel at SDCC, Jeph Loeb dropped hints that their upcoming animated show Avengers Assemble may not be a reboot after all. So, what does this mean for Avengers: EMH? Check out details after the jump.
During the Cup O' Joe panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Jeph Loeb was asked about the upcoming Marvel animated TV show Avengers Assemble, which has already received a massive amount of hatred from fans for replacing the much loved Earth's Mightiest Heroes series which had adapted many great storylines, but sadly left a few unfinished due to its rushed ending.
When asked about the upcoming show by a fan, Loeb said “We love the [Avengers: EMH] show so much that one of the first things we did was...take a look what the plans were and expanded from 24 episodes to 52 episodes.”
However, despite 52 episodes being described as an "enormous commitment" for animation, Marvel took into account of the hugely positive response to last Spring's Marvel's The Avengers movie. And that response may have influenced them to focus more on the superhero cast of the movie; hence bringing life to Avengers Assemble. What does this mean for the former, much loved series?
Jeph Loeb spoke more about the new series adding that “it better reflects the cast that’s in the movie...but we’re not saying ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ never happened.” Continuing on that comment, he adds his thoughts about the ending to Earth's Mightiest Heroes. “We took this giant epic story, it has a conclusion we always meant to get to...and when we get out of that you’ll see what ‘Avengers Assemble’ will take it to" Loeb added.
If this new series is truly a sequel and not a reboot, will you give it a chance? I'm sure that we will find out everything we need to know about the upcoming series when it is unveiled this weekend at Comic-Con, so stay tuned for details.
