SDCC 2012 : Marvel TV Panel Re-Cap

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

Marvel has seen a renaissance in its animated programming the last couple of years, starting with Avengers : Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and working its way up to Ultimate Spider-Man earlier this year. Shake-ups have been the rumors lately along with new shows on the horizon. Today’s Marvel TV panel, headed up by Marvel’s head of television, Jeph Loeb, gave us some insight as to where the programming is going next:

Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.

Leave it to Loeb to kick it off with this new series, considering he was the mean that introduced Red Hulk to the world of comics a couple of years ago. Given Hulk’s rising popularity between the animated show and the Avengers flick, it comes to no surprise that this would get the green light to come on.

“We thought it would be good to be able to show Hulk as a hero,” he said. Loeb, who launched the Red Hulk and ultimately extended the Hulk family, showed test footage of the upcoming show, which features Hulk, Red Hulk, She-Hulk, and A-Bomb.

The Hulks, including Skaar, fight bug beasts and other monsters, ending with the rallying cry “Time to smash!” The show will debut in 2013.

Ultimate Spider-Man

Expect more shenanigans with Spidey and his S.H.I.E.L.D. teammates as they tangle with villains like Kraven, Lizard, and Rhino. There’s speculation that Spider-Ham will be an episode of the show. That’ll do just fine.

Marvel Knights

Many may remember some of the mature movies Marvel took on such as Thor & Loki : Blood Brothers. Loeb confirmed that they have more in the pipeline including Astonishing X-Men, Inhumans, Wolverine : Origin, and Wolverine : Weapon X.

Avengers Assemble

And then of course, there’s the giant elephant in the room. It was noted earlier in the year that Marvel was ending Avengers : Earth’s Mightiest Heroes once its completes this season’s run as a way to take the animation in-house. Ultimate Spider-Man is already under Marvel, hence it only made fiscal sense to roll up its other popular property under it too. Loeb though had this to say:

“Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” was always going to be 52 episodes, an animation industry standard order. When that show concluded itself, we had an issue on our hands, what to do next.

Avengers Assemble plans to continue that continuity though fortunately, though obviously with different animation and voice acting not yet finalized.

CBF Podcast 8: The Unwritten, Spider-Man, X-Force, DVDS

No Green Lantern talk!

Okay, a little Green Lantern talk. Tim reviews the DVD Green Lantern First Flight, which I should be watching this Friday. There’s been some buzz about the new Marvel and DC DVDs and anime being made, such as Wolverine (which is really, uh…Japanese), Ironman and Hulk (both of which look amazing). We should do a movie podcast down the line.

I review issues 2 and 3 of Mike Carey’s The Unwritten. This is getting good, literary references, secret identities, magical powers, and mystery everywhere. I recommend it with my other new Vertigo favorites, Fables and House of Mystery.

We take a quick look at Grant Morrison’s Batman and Robin. Meh.

Tim reviews the end of the Spider-Man arch American Son, with spoilers so you are hereby warned. He also gets into the new X-Force, which is headed up by Wolverine. How he finds the time to do this we don’t know, must be a mutant or Canadian thing.  I make a mental blunder confusing my X-titles (like that’s never happened to you).
