Disney XD has finally revealed when their two new Marvel cartoons will premiere. The new Avengers show will assemble for an early preview Sunday, May 26 at 11 am ET/PT before landing in its regular time slot Sunday, July 7. Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. will debut Sunday, August 11 am.
Avengers Assemble has an uphill battle to fight since most fans were less than thrilled a new series would replace the popular Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The new show is said to continue off of EMH, but with a new edition to the team in the form of Falcon. Spinoff.CBR had a pretty good synopsis for the series:
“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” reunites the most popular super hero team — Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow, along with newcomer Falcon, marking the first time in animation history this distinct team of heroes will join forces. Led by Iron Man, the heroes train and live together in their new headquarters in Avengers Tower. The planet’s most dangerous villains don’t stand a chance when the Avengers assemble – whether they are stopping Dr. Doom from conquering Asgard, Attuma driving the Atlantean Army into New York City or Dracula unleashing vampire hordes, the Avengers must work together to succeed.
Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. is a brand new series focusing on the green giant and the other members of the Hulk family. They’ll be old faces like She-Hulk, Red Hulk, and Skaar, but they’ll also be some new characters like A-Bomb.
Hulk has long fought alone to protect a world that sees him as a monster, but his friend Rick Jones has taken it upon himself to film the world-saving exploits of Big Green and his team to change that image. In this never before seen team up of Hulk, his cousin She-Hulk, A-Bomb, Red Hulk and Skaar, Marvel’s mightiest super heroes form an eccentric family living under one roof, working together to tackle threats that are too enormous for other heroes to handle. From trying to house break their giant red pet T-Rex to stopping Ego the Living Planet from crashing into the Earth, the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. must learn to balance Hulk-sized action with everyday family-sized problems.
It will be interesting to see how the two shows are received by viewers. Ultimate Spider-Man receives pretty mixed reviews from most viewers, and EMH was a hit. What do you think of the two new series? Will you be tuning in to Disney XD?
