Disney Channels Worldwide has released some information about its 2010-2011 slate of programming for Disney Channel and Disney XD. While most of it is stuff we don't care about at Animated Superheroes, here is one item that is definitely worth mentioning:
The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (52 episodes) - a new Tween 9-14-targeted series produced by Marvel Animation for Disney XD and DisneyXD.com that will premiere fall 2010. The series stars Marvel heroes Iron Man, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Giant Man and Wasp, who together form the Avengers. The series will be supported by a 20-part "micro-series" that will explore the back-story of each character and will rollout this fall followed by the series. After its US debut the series will then makes its way around the world.
The 20-part "micro series" intrigues me the most (hence the bolding)! Not only do we get 52 episodes of Avengers but we also get more content leading up to the series premiere! I like the way this is going!
