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.

Gee, internet sites DIDN'T check or try to verify the facts and posted a made up rumor as truth? Say it ain't so.


Again, just goes to show - Can't believe everything you read on the internet.

I just saw the Secret Invasion episodes and that was really cool. Sure they had to severely truncate the story, but it was still incredibly neat to see a major comic storyline only a couple years old done in animated form!

TV Guide did an actual interview with Loeb and Quesada in which does seem support the cancellation, however.

Jeph Loeb: The Avengers movie has been the ambassador to the world for the Marvel Universe so we want a show that has the feel and the tone and the incredible adventures like that movie. So the next project that we're working on — and this is down in our lab, top secret, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents protecting us at all costs — is Marvel's Avengers Assemble, which will be a brand new and really extraordinary looking animated series dealing with the Avengers in that same world.

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

As someone who has watched a lot of cartoons this thing isn't that unusual. These shows are built with an expiration date. Avengers Assemble shows there's nothing wrong with the property itself, it's just time for the next iteration (probably looking to match the movie version better ETA-see post above). It's a bummer though when it's a show you enjoy.

So basically all the supposed fan hatred of Ultimate Spider-Man really comes from one guy who is possibly the Ultimate Internet Troll

I figured something was up with the whole everyone hates the show but Disney still okayed a second season thing.

Still a bit excessive just for a show the guy doesn't like.

Yeah, I figured that site was biased what with all the hatemongering rhetoric, but I thought it had just slanted things, not been such an elaborate, wholesale hoax.

But then, where did that Avengers Assemble poster with Falcon on it come from? Is it an existing piece of artwork that got mocked up as a promotional image?

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

It's possible that the new show is legitimate and that it's just the cancellation of the old show that's in question. Though, it seems odd that they would have two Avengers shows being produced at once.

It's also possible that the new show is just in the development phase and has not in fact been green-lit. There's plenty of precedent for superhero shows/movies that never got off the ground.

I think the odds of two Avengers shows being produced at the same time are zero, especially if they're both using the same core characters.

I believe the new show is legitimate, but Nabil's rhetoric isn't.

Well there other linked interview confirms Avengers Assemble is in the works along with the new Hulk show, so they are making it from the looks of it. We just don't know whats going to happen to Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Its still possible that they may run both shows. I mean isn't that exactly what's going on with Young Justice and New Teen Titans.

Those shows will be about as different from one another as night and day. Teen Titans Go! is almost a parody.

Not exactly, since those go in very different directions; Young Justice is an older-skewing action drama, while Teen Titans Go is straight comedy for younger viewers. Also, they only have two main characters in common and so aren't really about the same team. Conceptually and demographically, they fill very different niches. If Avengers Assemble really exists, then it's almost entirely built around characters who are already part of the A:EMH core cast (Falcon being the exception), and it's the same kind of action-adventure-based show. So it would be a lot more redundant having them both on the air at the same time.

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

I'm about an hour away from watching episode 22 of season 2.

Australia has burnt off Avengers Earth's mightiest heroes, just pissed them out without any fear of there being a season 3.

Possibly giving marvel the finger for selling them something with no future, and a pathetic syndication package? It's basically a ponzy scheme since the cancellation was in the works before these episodes were sold around the world.

Historically, almost a year after its 8 episode run in the states, I saw posters appearing in bus stops down under for "the new runaway break out smash hit of this generation": The Bionic Woman... Because some idiot bought this series as a prime time show and aired it as a prime time show and there is no way that they could have recouped their advertising budget with their only being 8 episodes ever being made...

The 2nd season finale for avengers Earth's mightiest heroes, episode 26, is airing in eight days in Australia.

This is an usual stratagem I believe Pontius Pilot once employed.

But it's going to sell a shit load of toys and t-shirts.

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

God dammit, Along Came A Spider is UNWATCHABLE thanks to Parker's voice.

This is not due to Keaton being recast, but because Drake Bell is a horrible voice actor.

He. Can't. Emote. Through. His. Voice. At All. Every line, EVERY FUCKING LINE has the same inflection.

Tom Kenny (as Spongebob) would have suited the part much better. (Hell, Kenny's Plastic-Man would have been pretty damn awesome.)

Anything would be preferrable to a prepubescent Ben Stein-er Man.

Realistically, they'd be very wise to sneak-in or leak the original audio with Keaton in the eventual S2 DVDs.

That's not what I meant. I was saying, in the hypothetical situation that the "news" about Avengers Assemble was just one of the lies this website guy invented, then where would he have gotten the art to mock up a promo poster for a nonexistent show?

But if it really did come from a trade show, if there's independent confirmation that the poster exists, then at least we know there's something coming called Avengers Assemble and featuring those characters. But maybe not a replacement TV series. Could it be a video game tying into the movie?
