The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Trailer
They had a bunch of solo shorts on Sunday introducing the characters and events possibly setting up the formation of the avengers. Some were pretty good. During the Capt America episodes, they were flashbacks to 1940s when they were attacking HYDRA with the Howling Commandos.. And there was a cameo of Logan as one of the Commandos. Pretty neat.
"74 of the world's worst super villains" ... what an oddly specific number to put in your promo!
The rather artless and stilted running animation at 11-12 seconds is one of the reasons I have trouble getting excited about this series (the completely generic sound track doesn't help)... it just doesn't have the quality that a) The Avengers deserve and b) That Disney/Marvel is capable of.
The show was fairly rushed into production under a Marvel division that was created at the end of January and though originally slotted for ABC and ABC Family, has fallen from grace to the rather obscure Disney XD channel. I mean Paul Dini, Brian Bendis, and Man of Action are still working on Ultimate Spider-Man, giving that time to develop and with top-notch talent... but Avengers is made by relative rookies in half as much time!
That said, any Avengers is arguably better than no Avengers. We'll see.
I DVRd them micro episodes and am trying to watch them all, SO MANY! Good though, I am really excited about this. When Superhero Squad came out I thought, why can't they just do adult normal versions of the characters since they can do a SHQ episode featuring Wolverine, Thing, Captain America, and Kazar.
So I guess they heard my thoughts or something.
Some character designs I am not crazy about, but like the Legion of Superheroes cartoon, they can fix them and improve them in later seasons and evolve the characters and story and designs along the way.
I have DisneyDX, so I will definatly watch this. I just hope Disney gives the show more of a chance than they did Wolverine and the X-men, Spectacular Spider-man, or... did Disney XD show the Batman Brave and the Bold?
Anyway, I hope the higher ups give this show a chance. I could become so great.
I can't wait for the Ultron/Hank Pym breakdown episode, or the Wonder Woman episode, I just can't wait.
And just a note, Super Hero Squad returns this weekend on Cartoon Network (who also shows Brave and the Bold).
I'm not loving the animation style BUT i watched the short 5-10min shorts they showed like all day on disney xd and the show was actually pretty good overall and i'll give it a shot
Just wished the animation style was different
But the writing and voice acting wasn't bad either
Seriously people, Disney XD used to be Toon Disney, changed a few years ago. It's the more mature line up of disney cartoons- as opposed to what's on the regular Disney channel.
And I would give anything for it to last 2 years. And why is everyone harshing on Lionsgate? They're the distributers behind all the marvel animated films?
It looks way better than I thought, however I don't know how well it will do on Disney XD. I'm not saying that as anything bad, I mean literally I have no idea how shows like this do on that channel. It could be a smash hit or a dud, I just don't know if shows like this do well on that channel so I'm nervous to see that play out.
