The new series, expected to be available for broadcast in 2011, continues on Marvel's already impressive television line-up which includes the all-new "Wolverine and the X-Men" and "Iron Man: Armored Adventures" series that will both debut on Nicktoons in 2009. Marvel Animation will also debut the all-new series "Marvel Super Hero Squad" and "The Black Panther" next year.
"The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" is an all-new property featuring some of Marvel's all-time favorite characters including Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Giant Man and Wasp. 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, when forces of evil are so overwhelming that no single hero has the power to save the world, when there is no hope left?the Avengers assemble!
The Avengers are the best of the best in the Marvel Universe and the greatest heroes who take on the most unbeatable foes. These are the heroes who hold back the storm, and the fate of the world rests on their shoulders.
"The addition of 'The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes' to our quickly expanding animation slate continues our plan to complement each of our tentpole live action features with an animated series," said Eric Rollman, President of Animation. "This new ensemble series tracks perfectly with our highly anticipated 'road to the Avengers' strategy which includes some of Marvel's biggest and most beloved characters, and which kicks off with two Avengers' themed feature films in summer 2011.
This sounds GREAT.
