Hulk: Gamma Corps is No More

According to Marvel Animation Age, it has been confirmed that the Marvel Animation project Hulk: Gamma Corps is now officially shelved. Well, sort of. Through a magical series of events, Hulk: Gamma Corps, while in the middle of pre-production, morphed into Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, which was announced a month ago.

The creative team realized the opportunity to tell bigger and better stories than a Hulk series would support so the direction was changed to include all the members of the Avengers. Joshua Fine, Director of Animation Development for Marvel Animation:

It became apparent to us that the creative work that was being done to bring Hulk’s world and his villains to life was too good to relegate to his universe alone, and would be much better suited as part of an full-on Avengers scenario.

I have to say that I am happy that an Avengers series is being made instead of another Hulk series. With all the attention the Hulk is getting these days (Ultimate Avengers 1&2, Hulk vs, Next Avengers, Wolverine and the X-Men episode seven, the upcoming World War Hulk), is good to see Marvel giving some other heroes a chance -- although Hulk will be in this series too.
