SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2012: Highlights From MARVEL TV PRESENTS Panel

Unfortunately, there were absolutely no announcements made in regards to Marvel's live-action television plans, but we do have some very interesting updates on the Avengers Assemble, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Marvel Knights and Ultimate Spider-Man animated shows.

Marvel's television panel has just wrapped up at the San Diego Comic-Con and while we do have some interesting updates on the status of their various animated endeavours, there is sadly no new information when it comes to the many live-action shows which have been talked about for the past few years. Marvel's head of TV, Jeph Loeb hosted the panel and screened some brand new footage which is described below.


Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes hasn't been cancelled as Avengers Assemble is being viewed as a continuation of that series.

• Footage was shown from Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., and while it is currently in the early stages of production, Hulk, Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Skaar, and A-Bomb, were show and it was announced that the pilot was written by Paul Dini.

• She-Hulk was shown fighting strange flying bugs, Skaar shouts "Skaar Smash!" and Red Hulk has a large 90s style gun. It will be aimed at a younger audience.

Avengers Assemble is compared to what Brian Michael Bendis did in the comic books with the New Avengers series. The cast of the series is similar to Marvel's The Avengers in order to expand its audience after the success of the movie.

• Footage shown featured a giant dragon attacking Manhattan as Iron Man flies the Quinjet with the team on board. Hulk pushes Thor aside and tells him, "You'll be lucky if there's anything left to smash", before jumping out of the plane. Hawkeye and Captain America are on mini jets, while Iron Man shoots missiles at the creature causing it to fall down and then get back up.

• Upcoming "Marvel Knights" motion comics include Inhumans by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee, Wolverine: Origins by Joe Quesada, Paul Jenkins and Andy Kubert, Eternals by Neil Gaiman and John Romita, Jr., Wolverine: Weapon X by Jason Aaron, Esad Ribic, and Ron Garney, and Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk by Damon Lindelof and Leinil Francis Yu!

Ultimate Spider-Man is the #1 animated show on Disney XD, and season two will feature the Lizard, Rhino, Beetle, and Electro.
