Marvel and Disney are looking to captialize on the success of The Avengers. Not only are they developing a new Avengers Assemble TV series to replace Earth's Mightest Heroes, but they are also developing a new Iron Man animated series. The news comes from the president of Disney Channels Worldwide, Gary Marsh, who let it slip in the following statement to THR when asked if he was looking into more Avengers series,
Two months ago, we launched Marvel Universe on Disney XD, which became the exclusive home for new Marvel television content. We've developed Ultimate Spider-Man. Subsequent to the success of the Avengers movie, we've been developing a new Avengers Assemble. We're talking about a Hulk series and an Iron Man series, too. They're going to spend $150 million to $200 million to make these [movie] properties and then half of that to market them; I'm sitting here thinking, 'Thank you, Lord, you've made me look good.'
The fact that he's on the subject of their animated series tells us that the Hulk show he's reffereing to is most likely Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., and this is the first time we've heard of a new Iron Man series. I imagine this will end up replacing Iron Man: Armored Adventures. I hope the new series turns out to be cool! Are you excited about Marvel working on a new Iron Man animated series?
