Marvel animation-- Avengers Assemble and Hulk: Agents of Smash
 
Marvel announced the voice casts for their upcoming animated shows Avengers Assemble and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. at NYCC.

The cast of Avengers Assemble...

Quote:

The voice cast for Marvel's Avengers Assemble includes Adrian Pasdar (Heroes) as Iron Man, Fred Tatasciore (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness) reprising his role as Hulk, Roger Craig Smith (Wreck-It Ralph) as Captain America, Travis Willingham (Shelf Life) as Thor, Troy Baker (Ultimate Spider-Man) as Hawkeye, Laura Bailey (The Super Hero Squad Show) as Black Widow and Bumper Robinson (The Game) as Falcon.
The cast of Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H....

Quote:

On Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Hulk will be joined by his larger-than-life teammates and unconventional family, cousin She-Hulk, the irascible Red Hulk, the exuberant A-Bomb and the savage Skaar. Being helmed by Emmy Award-winning Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series, Lost) and Henry Gilroy (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. will feature Fred Tatasciore (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness) as Hulk, Clancy Brown (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Red Hulk, Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse) as She-Hulk, Ben Diskin (Codename: Kids Next Door) as Skaar and Emmy Award-winning Seth Green (Robot Chicken) as A-Bomb.
I think that casting Seth Green as Rick Jones is inspired, but would rather have "classic" Rick. Also-- mini "Buffy" reunion with Eliza Dushku playing Jen Walters.

Agents of S.M.A.S.H. sounds like a title a ten-year-old would come up with.

The recasting of the Avengers roles suggests that Assemble is not, as previously suggested, a continuation of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. That's unfortunate. And if they were going to recast everyone else, I wish they hadn't kept Tatasciore as Hulk. I'm not as impressed with him in the role as Marvel's execs are. I think Rick Wasserman (EMH's Thor) did a much better job as Hulk in the Planet Hulk movie.

Eliza Dushku is an interesting choice for She-Hulk, but I don't know if the show will interest me.

It does suggest that its in continuity with Ultimate Spider-Man though, since it using the same voice actors as the guest starting Avengers in USM.

Not necessarily, since Marvel often uses the same actors across multiple continuities. Pasdar first played Iron Man in the English dub of the anime IM series from Madhouse, which certainly isn't in the same continuity as USM. And Tatasciore is Hulk in both EMH and USM; he's their default Hulk in virtually everything except Planet Hulk, just like Steve Blum is their default Wolverine. (Except in the Madhouse Wolverine series, where his English-dub voice was Pasdar's Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia.)

I like those casts. I hope we get footage soon.

Yeah but, its not one or two here its all of the Avengers that are featured in both that share voice actors, plus the character designs are similar.

^Maybe, but nothing's proven yet. Then again, since the Man of Action team is producing the show, that suggests it very well could be in the USM universe. Which is a shame, since USM has turned out to be a disappointing show.

I, think that while its still not as good as Spectacular it has gotten at least a little better in the last few episodes.

Interestingly enough during which outside of the guest hero Spider-Man has been practically operating solo.

I've been enjoying the current Avengers: EMH (even though my DVR refers to it as "Avengers: Heroes!"). It's a shame they are going to end it to start all over.

Nothing about the "Hulk SMASH" show interests me except for Paul Dini being involved. That alone will get me to watch. I must be a little out of the loop though with Marvel, since I've never heard of A-Bomb (but I do know all the others). Can anyone tell me who he is?

I hadn't heard of him either, but Wikipedia says A-Bomb is Rick Jones, who was transformed into an Abomination-like creature in 2008 by the Leader and MODOK. I guess it's the trend now to turn all long-standing Hulk cast members into Hulk-like creatures themselves, since Gen. Ross is now Red Hulk and Betty is Red She-Hulk.

Betty is Red She-Hulk? Ugh, I guess everybody is getting powers these days.

Wasn't there supposed to be another Iron Man series at some point - to replace Iron Man: Armored Adventures? I really enjoyed IMAA (though I seem to be in the minority) and would love to have another standalone series.

I'm aware that there's another IM anime coming out (And I also liked the first series), but I was thinking / hoping that a domestic series featuring a growed-up Tony would be somewhere in the pipe...

Not that I know of. Apparently there's still talk about a possible third season for IMAA.

She-Hulk is my second favorite superhero after DC's Captain Marvel, so I'm excited for the hulk cartoon. That said, I HATED Eliza Dushku on Buffy, and i've never seen her in anything else, so it sucks that she's voicing she-hulk. Hopefully she doesn't suck at voice acting.

I still think having a new Avengers cartoon is stupid. why not just continue with the first one? I'm also not a big fan of the roster (I get it, Marvel had a successful movie, but you don't need to modifiy every version of the avengers to fit with the movie). Having the Falcon over Hank Pym/Wasp is....weird, especially with ant man getting a movie apparently.
