Disney's First Animated MARVEL Film Revealed?

Although not much of a familiar title, Disney's first potential animated feature film focused on Marvel properties may have been revealed. Hit the jump and check it out for details

Ever since Walt Disney Pictures purchased Marvel Studios, fans have been hopeful of a superhero team up with Marvel and Pixar. And while Pixar may not be involved, according to Blue Sky Disney, supported by The Grid, details for what'll be the first Disney animated Marvel film have hit. Including the project's director & release date, read below!

Walt Disney Animation‘s upcoming "Big Hero 6," about a heroic superhero team, is currently an open writing assignment, with no scribe currently attached to the project. The film will be produced by Kristina Reed.

The slot that is set for 2014 has been set aside for Don Hall's project. Don Hall is the director of "Big Hero 6." In fact, he's the one that pitched the idea to Lasseter, who liked his take on the subject and approved it for development. Now, it's not fully green lit. The project is story boarded and has been deemed strong enough to tentatively put in the production line.

According to Marvel.com and Wikipedia, the Big Hero 6 superteam first appeared in Sunfire and Big Hero 6 #1 in 1998, although they were created by Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau in the pages of Alpha Flight, volume 2. When the Japanese government wanted a team of state-sanctioned super-heroes at their disposal, a top-secret consortium of politicians and business entities known as the Giri was formed to recruit and train potential superhuman operatives for "Big Hero 6." What do you think?
