Marvel Future Avengers is Coming to Disney+ in February
There’s been no shortage of animated Marvel shows over the years. However, a few of these have managed to sneak under the radar of even the most diehard fans. And next month, one such series is joining the Disney+ family. According to the official D23 website (via ComicBook.com), Marvel Future Avengers is coming to the streaming service on February 28.
Marvel Future Avengers was an anime series produced by Madhouse and Walt Disney Japan. It premiered in that country in 2017. The show primarily centered on three teenagers who gain superpowers after HYDRA experiments on them. But after they discover HYDRA’s evil intentions, they defect to the Avengers, who agree to take them on as protégés. The series featured many of the team’s A-listers, including Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, and Thor. It aired 39 episodes spaced out across two seasons. A few territories were also treated to an English dub.
Of course, this wasn’t Marvel’s first flirtation with anime. Back in 2010, the company teamed up with Madhouse to produce four series headlined by different characters. They delivered vehicles for Iron Man, Wolverine, X-Men, and Blade, all of which aired in the U.S. on G4. Madhouse also produced the direct-to-DVD anime films Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore and Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher. None of these are currently available to watch on Disney+. But if Future Avengers generates enough viewer numbers, perhaps it could also convince the platform to add them to their library.
