The Official Announcement

... hits the press.

Following their successful partnership this year with Ultimate Spider-Man, corporate siblings Marvel and Disney XD are teaming up again for two animated superhero series. As previously announced, Marvel Television is already in production on Marvel's Avengers Assemble and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. Marvel is set to make the announcement today at New York Comic Con that both show are slated to join Disney XD's Marvel Universe block in summer 2013. ...

The Mouse knows success when it rises up in front of it. The Mouse is generally adept at capitalizing on same.

As we've noted before, Ultimate Spider-Man is produced at Starz-Film Roman. Marvel Animation, located in Glendale, is handling Avengers and Hulk (with work well underway) and more series coming soon. I'm told that they will, sooner rather than later, move to a building with more elbow room. Right now they're in 9-10,000 square feet that is filling up steadily.

With space constraints, Marvel is free-lancing work. The company is famously thrifty with a dollar. Whether that operating philosophy extends to MA's television franchises, we will know in the fullness of time.
