I'll give the show a chance, I hope Hasbro puts figures out in a decent scale. A JLU compatible scale would be exceptional!

As far as toys, they will need a good hook to pull me in. We will see.

As for scale, compatible with all the Toy Biz Marvel figures I got in the 90's would be my desired scale.

Either make 'em Legends scale or make another MU subline a la the Iron Man 2 toys.

Otherwise, don't make 'em at all!

The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Premieres Oct. 20

by SuperHeroHype

Sep 20th, 2010

Micro-episodes to roll out on Wednesday, September 22

New animated series "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!" will premiere Wednesday, October 20 at 8:30 p.m., ET/PT on Disney XD. Produced by Marvel Animation, the series features Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, Ant-Man/Giant Man and Wasp. They form the Avengers, a team assembled when the powers of a single hero are not enough to save the world.

Beginning Wednesday, September 22, Disney XD, DisneyXD.com/Avengers, Marvel.com, MarvelKids.com and Disney XD Mobile will roll out 20 micro-episodes introducing the team's core members. Each five-and-half-minute episode focuses on the back story, allies and nemeses of the heroes before the Avengers were formed.

In the two-part series premiere, "The Breakout," Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man and Wasp have defeated some of the most dangerous Super Villains on the planet. But when the Super Villain prison system mysteriously shuts down, chaos is unleashed on the world. Earth's Mightiest Heroes must now band together as the Avengers to protect the planet from the threats that no single Super Hero could face alone. Their first task is to try and stop Graviton, a being whose power dwarfs anything ever seen. He's after Nick Fury, but will destroy the world to get to him. Individually the heroes have no chance, but together they can make a difference.

The complete multiplatform rollout is:

Wednesday, September 22

Disney XD will air a special sneak peek of the first micro-series episode, "Iron Man is Born!," at 8:30 p.m., ET/PT directly following premiere of the network's newest series, "Pair of Kings."

DisneyXD.com/Avengers, Marvel.com, MarvelKids.com and Disney XD Mobile will unveil a new micro-episode every day, for 20 days, leading up to the micro-episodes' premiere on Disney XD. DisneyXD.com/Avengers will also feature a gallery of each of the Avengers and offer inside information about Kang, Loki and the rest of the "most wanted" Marvel Super Villains.

Tuesday, October 5

Select micro-episodes will be made available as a free preview on iTunes.

Monday, October 11

Disney XD will roll out all 20 micro-episodes during "Avengers Week" from Monday, October 11 to Friday, October 15, with four micro-episodes stacked each night at 8:30 p.m., ET/PT.

Sheesh. That's a lot to keep track of.

Please be good! I've only recently got the horrible taste of the last Avengers series out of my mouth. :twisted:

My heads spinning with all those dates and micro-episodes. I've been waiting on this for what seems like forever. Of course Shellhead gets his favorite character to debut first :P.

Well, he IS the greatest superhero of ALL TIME.

ALL TIME, I say.

:mrgreen:

But seriously, from what I've seen, he's sort of the leader in this version of the team.

The animation seems very so-so, so I hope the stories are good. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Now that Disney owns Marvel, could Mr. Incredible and Frozone be guest stars on an Avengers episode?

I don't see that happening per se, but I do see an homage of sorts in the background. Like a statue, or an action figure on a shelf.

Raise your hands, how many of you would like to see Pixar do some Marvel movies, like the Avengers, Spiderman, FF and X-Men? :wink:

Both of my hands are up! I'm even raising the hand of the person next to me.

Considering the wonderful job they did with the Incredibles, I think this would be an excellent venture.

Question is, who should be the subject of a Marvel Pixar flick?

Dr. Strange? Those wacky Ditko dimensions would be amazing in CG.

Power Pack? Kid friendly fare that Pixar is famous for.

You'd have to steer away from the edgy characters like Wolvie, Punisher, etc.

Fantastic Four would be a great choice, except (ironically) it would probably appear to be a ripoff of Incredibles to the average audience. :roll:

Ka-zar in the Savage Land would give Pixar plenty of opportunities to wow us.

I just don't know. Suggestions?

Remember, I don't foresee Pixar ever doing anything above a PG rating.

I don't think it's Pixar you'd have to be concerned with as far as the movie ratings go. It's Disney that has the squeaky clean image, and Pixar is just it's subsidiary.

But the Pirates of the Caribbean series (although not animated) are a Disney property, and they're all PG-13. They aren't raunchy or replete with graphic violence (hence the rating), but they have just enough innuendo, language and the like to be just above PG. So I think there's hope.

I think just about all of the Marvel Universe is fair game. With the exception of a few dark characters like Moonknight and Punisher. Even Wolverine, if he's grouped with his X-men brethren, can be tame enough for an animated big screen release. I think DTV is the best route, since it gives them a little more opportunity to push the envelope. They have a very long way to go to catch up to DC's DTV offerings after all.

I like the idea of a ditko Dr. Strange and I think the Avengers/Thanos saga from a decade or so ago would be pretty cool what with all the aliens and space stuff.

I agree that the FF would seem an awful lot like the Incredibles, but it could be really interesting to see Dr. Doom done by Pixar.

I really like the idea of Kazar! Really out of the box thinking and lots of potential!
