Avengers Assemble Promo Trailer!

The Avengers Assemble trailer is here. This new version of the animated Marvel team will premiere on Disney XD, Sunday, May 26th at 11 a.m. ET. The show will officially premiere on Sunday, July 7th at 11 a.m. ET as part of the “Marvel Universe” block.

An animated series parallel to the record-breaking blockbuster movie Marvel’s The Avengers, “Avengers Assemble” sees Iron Man leading the team of mightiest heroes – Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow and newcomer Falcon – who combine their powers to battle threats no single hero could overcome. When the Avengers assemble, evil doesn’t stand a chance. The voice cast includes: Adrian Pasdar (“Heroes”) as Iron Man, Fred Tatasciore (“Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness”) reprising his role as Hulk, Roger Craig Smith (Wreck-It Ralph) as Captain America, Travis Willingham (“Shelf Life”) as Thor, Troy Baker (“Ultimate Spider-Man”) as Hawkeye, Laura Bailey (“The Super Hero Squad Show”) as Black Widow and Bumper Robinson (“The Game”) as Falcon. Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle of Man of Action Studios (“Ben 10,” “Generator Rex”) will serve as executive producers.

In the first part of the special preview, Captain America is apparently destroyed by Red Skull, so Iron Man re-unites the team to try and avenge his friend and stop Red Skull’s army. In the second part, Red Skull steals Tony Stark’s armor, and the Avengers must galvanize the team to stop him and M.O.D.O.K. from destroying New York City.



I understand that Marvel and Disney want there Avengers series to closely resemble last summer’s blockbuster movie, mainly so its more accessible to children. It’s just as shame that they don’t think kids could follow along with the previous version “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes”. It was a personal favorite and had already built up quite a mythology around the team and their supporting cast. Hopefully this new version can capture some of the depth the previous incarnation had.
