The loss of Marvel's best-ever animated series, Disney XD's Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, left a lot of fans disappointed and frustrated. However, Marvel implied that their new series, Avengers Assemble, would not erase the continuity of EMH, but just revamp the style to more closely hew to the movie - which you can see in this brand new first-look trailer for Marvel's Avengers Assemble. They're even aping the movie's dialogue.
Here's the synopsis blurb from Marvel:
"The Biggest Heroes. The Biggest Threats. The Biggest Stakes!
It’s the most anticipated new animated series to launch this year and this July, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble reunites Marvel’s most iconic Super Heroes – Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow & Falcon! Featuring the team that took the world by storm in Marvel’s The Avengers, no fan can miss the action-packed adventures of Earth’s Mightiest as they must protect the Marvel Universe from the biggest threats they’ve ever seen – all while working together as a team! The world's most dangerous Super Villains don't stand a chance when the Avengers Assemble!
Don’t miss the miss the premiere episode of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble SUNDAY, JULY 7 with a special one-hour preview on SUNDAY, MAY 26 (both at 11:00 a.m., ET/PT) inside the Marvel Universe programming block on Disney XD."
Yeah, we're pretty sure they will reference absolutely nothing that happened in EMH ever. We can only hope that it isn't quite as schticky as Ultimate Spider-Man, or that it's not done in a winky reality show style, as seems to be the case with the upcoming Hulk: Agents of SMASH. To be fair, we haven't seen much of the latter, so it's far too soon to judge. So instead, tell us what you think of this new clip below.
If we can get over our bitterness about losing EMH, which is no easy task, we have to realize that Marvel's The Avengers was a damn good movie - one supposes they could do a lot worse than trying to replicate that. This could be cool. Right?
