Marvel has released a preview of their upcoming animated series Avengers Assemble, which premieres with a special preview on Disney XD later this month. The series, announced hot on the heels of last year’s Avengers feature film, replaces the previous animated Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Where Earth’s Mightiest Heroes had its roots firmly planted in the history of the comic series that inspired it, Avengers Assemble is a much clearer attempt to streamline and match the animated brand with the extremely popular and visible Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes saddened by the loss of that series will be able to tune in this weekend to see if Marvel has given audiences a proper replacement. From the press release:
The Biggest Heroes. The Biggest Threats. The Biggest Stakes!
It’s the most anticipated new animated series to launch this year and this July, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble reunites Marvel’s most iconic Super Heroes – Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow & Falcon! Featuring the team that took the world by storm in Marvel’s The Avengers, no fan can miss the action-packed adventures of Earth’s Mightiest as they must protect the Marvel Universe from the biggest threats they’ve ever seen – all while working together as a team!
