This animated short is pretty amazing. I can’t believe that it was made by a student, Vincent Chai, at the University Of Hertfordshire. It features two warring robots and a nuke ready to go off.

Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy and American Dad, has been producing a webseries of sorts for the past couple months. Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy is a mix of Family Guy and Robot Chicken for the YouTube generation. This particular short is an interesting look at one marriage’s troubles.

Dreamworks Animation have released an all new trailer for Monsters vs Aliens, an upcoming 3D animated flick from Rob Letterman (Shark Tale) and Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2).

After aliens invade America (“the only country that UFOs ever seem to land in”, heh), the President is forced to enlist monsters that the military has secretly been rounding up to save the planet. Included in the mix of monsters are a 49 foot 11 inch tall woman, “the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link; the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B.; and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus”.

I’m really excited that the Avengers will be assembling, it just sucks that we have to wait three years for it to happen.

Marvel has revealed that a new Avengers animated series is beginning production to coincide with the releases of their live actions films The First Avenger: Captain America and The Avengers. The show will be titled The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and will be produced by Marvel Animation.

The series will feature the same team that is rumored to be taking center stage in the film adaptation; Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Ant-Man, and the Wasp. The heroes are forced to come together “when the planet is threatened by super villains, time traveling conquerors, alien invaders, mythical monsters and mad robots bent on the total destruction of humanity”.

Also in production from Marvel Animated are Wolverine and the X-Men, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Marvel Super Hero Squad, and The Black Panther.

Hellboy, Ron Perlman, Hellboy 3, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army

Guillermo Del Toro is one of the busiest directors alive, so much so that Variety reports that he is booked through at least 2017. His line up of films includes the “Lord of the Rings” prequel “The Hobbit”, remakes of such classic films as “Frankenstein”, “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, and “Slaughterhouse-Five”, an adaptation of the novel “Drood” and H.P. Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness”, and hopefully… “Hellboy 3”.

“We laid the groundwork to have a magnificent third act,” the acclaimed director told the publication, who also went on to reveal that “the studio is interested and may work with del Toro to add a TV series and online segments to broaden the following before making the series finale.”

Hopefully they will also continue to make animated films, following on the successful DTV releases of “The Phantom Claw”, “Blood and Iron”, “Sword of Storms”, and video games; “Hellboy: The Science of Evil” was released at the end of June and featured all of the cast members from the films.

That would give us a wide variety of “Hellboy” content over the next dozen years, including a TV series, online shorts, animated films, video games, and the end of the film trilogy. And I for one, could not be happier.

From “Iron Man” to “Master Mind”? Hollywood Insider is reporting that Robert Downey Jr is teaming up with Ben Stiller’s production company, Red Hour Films, and will be lending his voice to DreamWorks Animation’s “Master Mind”, a superhero spoof.

Downey Jr., who starred as the golden avenger Iron Man earlier this summer, would be joining the dark side for this new film where he portrays a “villain who loses his will to live after accidentally killing his archrival”. Tina Fey is rumored to be joining the film’s cast.

The film has an expected release date of November 5th, 2010. The IMDB lists Gary Trousdale (Atlantis: The Lost Empire) as the director, but multiple sites are reporting that Cameron Hood and Kyle Jefferson will now be helming the film. Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons wrote the screenplay, which will be both writer’s debut film.
