'Marvel's Avengers Assemble': Jeph Loeb on bringing the super team to the small screen -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP
It’ll be two long years before Marvel’s live-action Avengers reunite at multiplexes around the world. Thankfully, diehard comic fans, casual film-watchers, and everyone in between can get their fill of Iron-Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, and Black Widow — along with Falcon, a new addition to the team — each week in Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, an animated series that premieres officially on Disney XD Sunday, July 7. (An hour-long sneak peek at the cartoon already aired Sunday, May 26.)
Avengers Assemble replaces The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, a previous series that aired from 2010 to 2012. “I think the best way of saying it is that there is a continuity, but as in publishing — when a new team takes over for a book — it doesn’t necessarily have to work off those storylines that have come before it,” explains executive producer Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television.

Didn’t get your fill of superheroes with Iron Man 3 this past weekend? You’re in luck — or at least, your kid is.
Disney XD has a special one-hour preview of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, airing Sunday, May 26 at 11 a.m. ET. The show officially premieres Sunday, July 7 at 11 a.m. ET as part of the “Marvel Universe” block on the channel.
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. Marvel’s Avengers Assemble stars 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 (Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man) as Hawkeye, Laura Bailey (The Super Hero Squad Show) as Black Widow and Bumper Robinson (The Game) as Falcon.
Assemble, Marvel fans — Disney XD has just announced the premiere dates for two new comic-inspired series.
Both Avengers Assemble and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. will debut this summer, the first on Sunday, July 7 and the second on Sunday, Aug. 11. Additionally, Disney XD will give viewers a special one-hour sneak peek at Avengers on Sunday, May 26. All of these showings will occur at 11 a.m. ET.
Each series features a cast of beloved heroes and villains from Marvel’s comics, as well as a few new characters just to keep things interesting. READ FULL STORY
