New Animated Iron Man Series Coming To Disney

New Animated Iron Man Series Coming To Disney

The president of Disney Channels Worldwide just let slip that an animated Iron Man series is apparently in development for the Marvel Universe block on Disney XD.

Speaking to THR about a number of topics, Gary Marsh, the president of Disney Channels Worldwide revealed an interesting sliver of info about what's coming down the pipeline on the animated Marvel front.

THR: Because Marvel is now part of Disney, are you looking into more Avengers series?

Marsh: Two months ago, we launched Marvel Universe on Disney XD, which became the exclusive home for new Marvel television content. We've developed Ultimate Spider-Man. Subsequent to the success of the Avengers movie, we've been developing a new Avengers Assemble. We're talking about a Hulk series and an Iron Man series, too. They're going to spend $150 million to $200 million to make these [movie] properties and then half of that to market them; I'm sitting here thinking, "Thank you, Lord, you've made me look good."

It's probably safe to assume that the Hulk series is most likely Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. but so far, this is our first hint at a new Iron Man animated show. This announcement spells the end of Iron Man: Armored Adventures but that's not the least bit shocking as the program airs on Disney rival Nickelodeon and was a deal that was in place prior to the House of Mouse acquiring the House of Ideas.
