Preview of "Who Do You Trust?"

Looks like the jig is up for Skrull Cap.

Re: Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes season 2 discussion thread

Just read some "WTF are they smoking?" type news. Apparently Marvel is planning to introduce another Avengers cartoon in 2013 (one that will take place in the same universe as Ultimate Spider-Man and the upcoming Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.). Obviously they wouldn't have 2 Avengers shows going on at once, so if this is true, they would no doubt cancel Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Forbes article confirms new Avengers Animated TV series to start next year

It really doesn't make much sense. Is it really that important that all of their Disney XD shows share the same universe, especially at the expense of a well performing show?

I'm really hoping there was some kind of misunderstanding somewhere.

Remember back when the mojoverse seemed hyperunrealistic?

Nah, I've been reading the same things. Apparently it was Jeph Loeb's decision to bring all fo the shows into the same continuity. Of course, I would have preferred that the other shows be created to fit into the pre-existing continuity of A:EMH, but apparently the decision has been made.

So, what, is Loeb trying to create a Marvel Animated Universe?

Maybe they should have tailored USM to fit into A:EMH's world, seeing as it came first.

It makes marketing easier.

Unified T-Shirts and unified toy lines.

It's a business thing. I gather that A:EMH is an outside production, and Marvel/Disney wants to bring it all in-house. It's similar to the reason why The Spectacular Spider-Man was dropped in favor of Ultimate Spider-Man. SSM was a Sony/Columbia production, but Sony/Columbia gave the TV rights for Spidey back to Marvel in exchange for keeping the feature film rights, so Marvel wanted to produce their own in-house Spidey show rather than continuing to bankroll an outside production. Or something like that.

Although IMDb says that A:EMH and USM have the same production companies, just different distributors. So it's a little unclear.

This stinks, I'm in Canada and the last episode I saw was the Ms Marvel episode. After that they started over from the Dr Doom one again! I've missed...what, 2 new episodes so far?

I'm in the theater right now waiting to see it in IMAX 3d. Hope it's worth the 11th bucks!

11 bucks for 20 minutes?

You're keen.

Or in the wrong thread.

I don't think its so much as them cancelling the show its just that it was planned to be a 52 episode series. I'm assuming by the end of season 2 that will wrap up the series. To capitalize on the momentum I'm sure they want to keep the Avengers on the screen in some capacity.

I'm not sure that would have worked seeing as Ultimate Spider Man seems more Marvel Movie-verse than A:EMH.

On the plus side it means we get an Avengers show that Coulson might show up on it.

Coulson vs Gyrich.

Bare chested, dripping in baby oil.

Except that the Coulson of USM is a very different character from the live-action Coulson. Original Coulson is a cool, charming everyman and audience identification figure, while USM Coulson is more along the lines of your standard stern, humorless authority figure who serves as a rival/obstacle for the fun, cool protagonists and is often the butt of their jokes. They're pretty much complete opposites.
