I agree. I doubt that the characters will look exactly like that on the promotion. They used Marvel artists to draw the covers to the Ultimate Avengers DVD movies.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

But it's cartoon for children.

Tony can't drink.

The Hulk can't eat people.

Thor can't say that he's a better GOD than Jesus.

Blackwidow can't kiss girls.

Hawkeye can't have arrows with pointy ends.

And...

Nope.

It's almost impossible to make Captain America even pg13.

Young justice?

Ultimate spider-man?

Obviously these are my own preferences on which series has the best animation

^That's not what he's saying. Those shows are well-animated, of course, but the character designs are not nearly as detailed or textured as those in the promotional poster. As a rule, more streamlined designs work better in animation.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

Bingo.

I was talking about the promo art.

Bait and switch.

Unless they think that they can sell a lot of toys and t-shirts to justify the expense of taking 4 times as long as it does to generate Earth's Mightiest heroes and 15 times longer than it does to animate an episode of Southpark, more power to 'em... More power to Loeb.

"Loeb the Powerful!"

(Sigh.)

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

I don't think it's a "bait and switch" to portray animated characters in a different art style in the promotional material than in the show itself. Heck, the opening titles of Batman: The Animated Series show Batman as a still painting (or mostly so) in a couple of places, which is very different from the style in which he's rendered in the show proper. It's no different from a comic book having a photorealistic, painted Alex Ross cover and more conventional line art inside. Or a live-action movie being promoted with a painted poster rather than a photo-montage one.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

There are degrees of bait and switch.

It's a sliding scale not a fixed point.

Some switches are more forgiveable than others.

I'm not Draco.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

Season 2's writing was substantially weaker than season 1's.

As such, this cancellation doesn't even qualify as moderately unpleasant news. A new show based on the same source material is already decided upon, after all.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

But here's the rub.

All the stories they already done just now in EMH...

It's DO-over Time for the new toon.

(DOOT?)

I mean every-time they reboot X-Men, the writing team is working their way towards the Dark Phoenix Saga.

EMH's Serpent Society look too much like He-Man enemies, except Constrictor.

Should've put this in the general discussion thread...whoops.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

Pym hadn't taken on another identity as yet.

I always like giANT Man.

When I was younger, I thought that the relationship between the words was clever.

Now that I'm dead inside, it just "is".

Though if Pym was never Goliath, that kinda takes the steam out of Hawkeye when he becomes Goliath, the Bad-Goliath who becomes Atlas and Black Goliath who Stark got murdered because he was asshole and Captian America got killed because he had a stick up his ass.

So many bad choicesin that civil war.

"Frank is a psycho becuase he goes out every night to beat men to death in white gloves".

I think Garth wrote that before Desperate Housewives started.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

I found season one on netflix many months ago.. I loved it my son is/was super into it. I was very happy to here that season 2 was coming out.

Saying all that I totally understand why it's being cancelled. It on Disney XD. For my local cable thats about 3 jumps in service over what I get.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

Because, despite denials, Nabil appears to have created the site Marvel TV News which runs stories about Marvelk animation and games, but mostly about how awful the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon is, and how everyone hates it. It is registered to a “Nabil Mjati” in Morocco. So, you know. That’s him.

And then he posted the news that the Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes would be cancelled and replaces with the cartoon Avengers Assemble. He also quioted from a press release, purported to be “print only”, saying “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes won’t be renewed for the 3rd Season. Marvel Animation will present their newly developed series Marvel’s Avengers Assemble in 2013.”

Which was picked up verbatim by sites all across the internet, some like Comic Book Movie, Oh No They Didn’t, CBR, Critiques For Geeks, giving credit to Marvel TV News, others like iFanboy, ScreenRant, Geek Tyrant, Super Hero Hype, Comic Vine

Only problem was that the quote was made up. There was no official press release. It was a lie that few chose to question.

There is certainly the rumour that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes has been cancelled. It may well be replaced by the new Avengers Assemble. But no official word. Marvel TV News made up an official quote and all the websites followed suit without checking.
