Marvel Super Hero Squad Show -- UPDATE: Music Video Added!

UPDATE: Marvel has released a music video promoting the Super Hero Squad Show. Watch it and be amazed. This show will be unlike anything we've ever seen before! If I have one complaint, it is that the animation looks a bit simple and limited, but I'll save my actual opinions until I see a full episode.

Marvel's Super Hero Squad Show panel was a huge hit this morning at the San Diego Comic-Con as hundreds got to see the first clips from the show as well as a live reading from some of the show's stars! The scene was a exclusively written for the Con and revolved around Doctor Doom as he scoured the Convention in search of the My Little Pony Comic-Con exclusive figure.

And speaking of voice actors, check out some of the talent that will be providing their voices during the first season of the show:

  • Charlie Adler (Cow & Chicken, Transformers 1 & 2) as Dr. Doom
  • Shawn Ashmore (X-Men trilogy) as Iceman
  • Alimi Ballard (NUMB3RS) as Falcon
  • LeVar Burton (Star Trek: The Next Generation) as Rhodey
  • Grey DeLisle (Fairly Oddparents) as Ms. Marvel and the Enchantress
  • Taye Diggs (Private Practice) as Black Panther
  • Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street) as Dormammu
  • Greg Grunberg (Heroes) as Ant-Man
  • Mark Hamill (Star Wars) as the Red Skull
  • Lena Headey (Sarah Connor Chronicles) as Black Widow
  • Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) as Sif
  • Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Ugly Truth) as Stardust
  • Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants) as Iron Man, Captain America and M.O.D.O.K.
  • Wayne Knight (Seinfeld) as Egghead
  • James Marsters (Smallville, Buffy the Vampire Slayeras Mr. Fantastic
  • Jennifer Morrison (Star Trek, House) as the Wasp
  • Adrian Pasdar (Heroes) as Hawkeye
  • Kevin Sorbo (Hercules) as Ka-Zar
  • George Takei (Heroes, Star Trek) as Galactus
  • Michelle Trachtenberg (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Gossip Girl) as the Valkyrie.

  • Now check out the show's theme song, which looks like it was shot on someone's camera phone. I'm not sure how long it will be on youtube before it gets removed.

    The Marvel Super Hero Squad Show debuts September 19, 2009 on Cartoon Network with a four-episode marathon. I know this show won't be for everyone, but I can't wait.

    That looks soooo much better than the lame comic strip. I'm intrigued.

    I'm interested in this show for no other reason then to see all the heroes working together and fighting all sorts of villains. I realize it is going to be young kid like but if they don't make it too cheesy I think it will still be entertaining. Specially since I'm a huge fan of many of the Marvel characters, that would never be able to be in animated form if it was a more serious show with much better animation but with it more kid like it is a lot easier to use a lot more superheroes. And lets face it Cartoon Network needs some good shows and this is a decent start. Unfortunately Cartoon Network has killed super hero cartoons before in the past so hopefully they will not do that with this one and any future ones.
