I dug the first season, with some reservation. Haven't seen any of the second yet, but looking forward to it. Sad to hear there won't be a third.
Yeah, the show got really great near the end of the first season. I consider the three parter finale with Loki to be very high up there with the best of animation.

It goes VERY well with the new Avengers movie we just got. Too bad it couldn't last longer.

Dang! I just started watching this recently. Just finished the superb "Breakout" and am looking forward to watching the rest of the first season and beyond.

Spinoff Online asks if the success of the Avengers movie is worth killing off EMH.

My answer-- no.

DOH!

I did not see that!

And they say that we can't read tone from blank text.

Pishaw.

I don't see why they have to cancel EMH if they want something closer to the movie. I don't think the tone is that different from the movie, and they can always change the featured characters if they want it to focus more on the movie characters.

The only positive I can take out of this cancellation is the hope that the new series will feature better animation. Other than that, I'm really going to miss A:EMH. It wasn't perfect, but I think it's one of Marvel's better animated series. I just hope the next show turned out better than Ultimate Spider-Man.

I thought EMH was already skewed pretty damn close to the movies as it was... Hell the first season finale was basically a version of the Avengers movie...

It could even be said the movie was basically a version of EMH.

But along with the redubbing of Josh Keaton's voice work as Spidey with that of Drake Bell's in EMH, this really just reeks of a decision to tie all of the Marvel cartoons into one very cohesive universe, perhaps even to the extent of using the same kind of animation and character designs currently being used by Ultimate Spider-man (we could see the exact same versions of Nick Fury and other characters in both). The upcoming Hulk: Agents of S.M.A.S.H. will probably do the same thing, IMO.

I read a quote yesterday suggesting that the new show might actually be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity, rather than simply evoking its feel. It was ambiguous, but if that is what the speaker meant, then it would have to be a distinct show.

(Although I'd expect it to be more the kind of thing that purports to be in the movie's continuity but that the sequels don't really bother to stay consistent with, like MTV's CGI Spider-Man series or the DC Star Trek comics that came out between the '80s movies.)

Promotional artwork. The actual character designs for animation are bound to be modified, but the initial roster is there (with several more members reportedly coming as the series goes along). Falcon will be apparently the newest member of the team as the series begins, so things will be told from his perspective at first.

There is no way they could justify the expense of animating a weekly serial that articulately.
