Marvel Studios has released a poster for their new upcoming animated series, The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Featured in the poster are four of Marvel’s “big guns”, Hulk, Ironman, Thor, and Captain America. I really like the look and animation style of the new series. Reminds me of the classic Ironman and Fantastic Four series from the 90s.
Missing from the poster are Ant Man and The Wasp, both who have been confirmed to be in the series. This Saturday at Comic Con, Marvel and Disney will be premiering the first two episodes, then the series is expected to start in the fall. The art is pretty cool and the team lineup is perfect. I really hope that the series is good and that the upcoming film will be even better!
While on the subject of the film version, at Comic Con we finally got confirmation from Joss Whedon himself, that he will indeed be directing The Avengers for Marvel Comics. With Ed Norton out as Bruce Banner, I am hoping that Marvel reveals who will be the new Hulk at Comic Con. Rumors are pointing towards Mark Ruffalo, who I think is an excellent actor and has the look for Banner. Robert Downey Jr, Samuel L Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Evans are all confirmed to be reprising their roles as Ironman, Nick Fury, Thor, and Captain America respectably. We haven’t had any word on who might be portraying Ant-Man or Wasp, who usually get the short end of the stick (see above poster, also). I could picture someone like Nathan Fillion as Ant-Man, but I have no ideas for Wasp.
Who do you think could fill the roles?
