The New Studio on Flower Street

From time to time I get asked about Marvel Animation. Where is it? What are they doing?

I'll tell you, it's headquartered in Glendale, in the middle of a lot of Diz Co. buildings. The place isn't super large, but it's ramping up. And the name of the first project the facility has in work has now hit the internet:

Marvel's television department is working on an animated Hulk series called Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., which is expected to debut in 2013. ...

Naturally enough, Marvel is also prepping another animated project ...

The Avengers movie has been the ambassador to the world for the Marvel Universe so we want a show that has the feel and the tone and the incredible adventures like that movie. So the next project that we’re working on — and this is down in our lab, top secret, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents protecting us at all costs — is Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, which will be a brand new and really extraordinary looking animated series dealing with the Avengers in that same world.” ...

I'm informed that the studio will be doing two or three series over the next couple of years, and that Spidey (not one of the three) will remain at Starz-Film Roman. I'd wager that Disney and Marvel will be exploiting the company's comic book universe over the next decade or three, as it seems to be a license for Disney to open its own mint.

Well at least that's a good thing (not sure what the comic book guys would say though).

They can sit and watch as others get filthy rich off what they created.

Same game. Different players.

jester:Is it true that some rich people take baths in dollar bills instead of water? That explains why they look dirty.
