Marvel Developing ANT-MAN And ROCKET & GROOT Animated Shorts

Marvel is currently developing two animated short series for Ant-Man and the two fan-favorite Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket Raccoon and Groot. What other characters should receive similar treatment?

Seeking to take advantage of tax breaks in France, Marvel has commissioned two animated short series for Ant-Man and Rocket Raccoon & Groot.  No official word yet but it's likely these shorts will debut as part of the Disney XD's Marvel Universe programming block that already includes Marvel's Avengers Assemble, Guardians of the Galaxy and Ultimate Spider-Man.  

French directors Ugo Bienvenu and Kevin Manach will team to tackle Ant-Man while Arnaud Delord will handle the Rocket & Groot shorts.  What's your take on these kinds of projects.  A while back, Cartoon Network did something similar with its DC Nation Shorts.   Eventually, this type of programming could be used to highlight some lesser known characters in the Marvel catalog.
