While it remains to be seen if Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes will be one of the all time best animated series, Its interesting that the show creator and director Craig Kyle thinks so. In a post on GeekTyrant, Kyle shared his excitement and explains why he feels this will be one of the greatest series to date.
Its going to be the best show ever made. I am so excited about Avengers I cant even tell you. It is the comic book put on screen. It is the classic team set in modern day. Theyre not fighting communists or anything. It is going to be big. Its Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Ant-Man and Wasp. Its the team. Its what you know and love put right on the screen. We are well on our way. Its definitely in heavy production right now as for a premier I do not know? It may be tied to the future film, it may not, I just dont know With Hulk Vs. we really got controls taken off as far as violence goes with Wolverine and the Hulk. But I got to tell you, working on Avengers, thats a cool show. As a comic book fan, Im so excited about it. I think the reason that animated series get the edge now [over direct-to-DVD features] is because when theyre good, you get a lot of more of them. Hulk vs. Wolverine was what, 33 minutes? So with shows like Armored Adventures, Wolverine and the X-Men and the upcoming Avengers, if theyre good you get like thirteen hours of them.
While no specific date has been given for the 2011 premiere of the animated series, people around the net are enthusiastic about its release.
The Avengers have manifested four times in the past in both series and film formats. They make their first appearance on the small screen in 1966 on the Captain America cartoon series. Later, the Avengers get their own series on Fox Kids in 1999 with Avengers United They Stand which received poor marks from the Avenger fan base. Marvel Animation created a winning combination with the release of their direct to DVD Ultimate Avengers animated features in 2006. They followed up the popular movies with a new imagining of the popular franchise with Next Avengers in 2008, a film featuring the children of some of the most popular Avenger heroes.
Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes will be penned by Chris Yost (Next Avengers, Wolverine and The X-Men) and produced by Ciro Nieli (Teen Titans, Transformers Animated), animation will be done by Film Roman, the production company for King of the Hill, The Simpsons and The Oblongs.
