Though I have had my problems with the way Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes has been handled as far as dangling storylines go, I have generally enjoyed the series.  Which is why it is sad to hear that Disney is cancelling the series on its Disney XD channel.

But wait! There’s a silver lining in the news!

While it is ejecting Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Disney has announced it is replacing the animated series with a new Avengers series called, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble!

The show should arrive on Disney XD (the logical network for the cartoon) in 2013, and the line up looks to include the Falcon for sure, and the Black Panther is rumored to be in the line up as well, which would lend more support to the rumor that Marvel is prepping for a Black Panther movie.

    Boo hiss on canceling A:EMH. I was a really good show! And the excuse “we want the same team as in the movie” rings a bit hollow since the Black Widow was the only member from the movie who was not a regular. Unless they intend this to be the animated adventure of the very team from the movie, which I don’t see as that great of an idea, IMHO.

      BTW, speaking of “Avengers Assemble”, I don’t get the purpose of the comic of the same name. Is it supposed to be a comic version of the upcoming animated show? It’s own separate universe? Another 616 Avengers title? Or what?

        i don’t think it’s a separate universe as marvel has stated from the beginning that avenger assemble the comic was in continuity, which it the only reason i buy, that and mark bagley’s art. i don’t know if the new cartoon follows the book or if it’s just coincidence. sorry to hear about earth’s mightest though.

    Will the new animated series be a continuation or a brand-new series? Or is it more likely this is going to be a restart using ideas from the movieverse?

    I really enjoyed the series, so I’m sad to see it ending.

    marvel should just suck up their pride and let the production crew from DC’s old justice league tv series do the animation for them. marvel could approve the storylines while andrea romano and bruce timm and team provide the animation, it would be epic!!!

      I’ve been hoping they would do that for years. I think the early 60’s animations where the just animated panels from the comic were best. Not this washed out sanitized stuff they’ve been dishing out. DC beats Marvel hands down in the department.
