It seems like Marvel saved a lot of their really cool announcements for their special Marvel TV panel today at the San Diego Comic-Con. Check out the recap below of everything announced by the head of Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb.
The first thing shown off is a series they’re billing as “Marvel Mash-up.” This series will serve as short form cartoons to air between shows wherein Marvel animations from the 1980s will be taken and dubbed over with new voices. The video shown at the panel was of a Fantastic Four-centric episode, expect video of it later today.
Next, Loeb switched gears to their Hulk centric cartoon, “Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.” He confirmed that the team will be made up of Hulk, Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Skaar, and A-Bomb, and the pilot script was written by none other than Paul Dini. Again, expect the test footage of this that was shown to appear online later today.
Another area touched on by Loeb is the upcoming “Avengers Assemble” cartoon. He confirmed that “Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” was NOT canceled and that it was always invisioned to end and be bridged together with the new cartoon.
“The cast has a lot of similarities to the Avengers movie, as they want to reach and appeal to the broadest audience possible.”
Jumping gears from television, Loeb started to talk about their Marvel Knights Animation brand. He confirmed that the remainder of Joss Whedon’s “Astonishing X-Men” will be coming out later this year (which broke earlier this week). They also announced what the next projects are for the motion comics: 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.
Finally, the panel showed off an as of yet unseen episode of “Ultimate Spider-Man” wherein he is transformed into Spider-Ham (which we have a preview of for you here).
