New Thor Series on the Horizon?

It looks like Thor is going to be quite busy over the next few years! Not only is Thor taking on the Hulk in Hulk vs in January, he is starring in his own animated feature film, Thor: Tales of Asgard, later in 2009, he has his own live-action movie coming in 2010, and he will be a major player in the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes series in 2011!

But now Reuters reports that Marvel is prepping Ol' Goldilocks for his own series to coincide with the feature film in 2010! The 26-episode season will feature Thor defending Asgard from his mortal and immortal enemies. From Reuters:

Marvel president of animation Eric Rollman said the series is part of the company's plan to follow each live-action movie with an animated series and "offer a continued awareness in the marketplace."

With Spectacular Spider-Man, Wolverine and the X-Men, Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Black Panther, Super Hero Squad, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and all of the upcoming DTVs, I'd say we are definitely aware of Marvel in the marketplace.
