With Marvel set to release so many movies for the big screen, it is no surprise they have decided to release some more animated goodness to the small screen. Currently Marvel has Iron Man and Wolverine and the X-men airing on the Nicktoons network, but soon their will be even more Marvel animation coming to a TV near you. Marvel will showcase two new shows and The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes
Marvel Super Hero Squad is a popular brand of toys which depict marvel super heroes at their cutest. The toy line has become so popular there will be an animated series, which will premiere late 2009 on Cartoon Network. The series will consist of 26 half-hour episodes, featuring such heroes as Captain America, , The Hulk, Wolverine, , and The Falcon. The premise is The Super Hero Squad must prevent Dr. Doom and his evil allies from collecting pieces of the Infinity Sword. If Dr. Doom is successful he will rule the universe.
To go along with the Marvel Super Hero Squad series a Video game will be released as well. This game will feature more than 20 Marvel characters such as Captain America, Dr. Doom, Falcon, Hulk, Iron Man, Juggernaut, Ms. Marvel, Silver Surfer, Thing, Thor and Wolverine. This is a single and multiplayer game with two modes battle mode or adventure mode. This game will be available for the Wii, , PS3, PS2, DS, and PSP
Then in 2011 Nicktoons will air The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to go along with along with all of the Marvel movies. This animated series consists 26 half-hour episodes starring Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Wasp, Ant-man, and Thor. This could turn out to be an amazing series, I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.
With the success of Wolverine and the X-men Marvel has ordered a second season, which it has been revealed that Apocalypse will be the main villain of the season. If Marvel keeps doing well with their series who knows what comic characters we might get to see animated. I am hoping for a series, it would be great to see how they handle Hulkling and Wiccan’s relationship.
