Linkage here! A little late with the news, but the new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon will be starting on April 1st (Lol, I know, what?!) in a new Marvel block on Disney XD with the second season of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Good timing, this will give them time to get the cartoons up and running before their film counterparts come out later this year.
Hopefully they'll have a straight run for Avengers, it's been about a year since the end of season 1 I think. The ending was such a cliffhanger, I can't wait to see how it turns out. Hopefully there will be more FF cameos and general fun-ness with Hawkeye and Thor. :D I'm gonna watch the new Spidey cartoon with no expectations, as it's not fair to have ";_; SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN WAS SO AWESOME, WHY WAS IT CANCELLED?!?!" running through my head while watching it. As long as they have the funny snark, I'll be pleased. But now that you have all your characters under one roof Marvel...PLEASE, SPIDEY/TORCH TEAM UP! My head exploding from nerd happiness will be worth it, I promise! The new series does have some awesome positives from the get go:
- JK Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson. Yes, it's movie JJ! :D
- Bendis will be working on the show, this gives me hope for the funny snark.
- Paul Dini, of DCAU fame! :D
- Clark Gregg (Iron Man, Thor, The Avengers) as Agent Coulson. Yes everyone....
IT IS THE SON OF COUL!
It looks as though YJ won't be coming back until the start of DC's programme block on Cartoon Network. They'd better start season 2 straight after, I've been
