With "Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man" as its centerpiece, Marvel Universe is the destination for kids and families to enjoy original animated Marvel TV content, including series and interstitials ...
I was through Marvel's small but active studio on Friday, with artists busily working on Hulk and Avengers. (Spider Man's latest television incarnation has been produced 'til now at Film Roman.)
Marvel Animation has informed me that the intention is to add a couple more series to the Marvel Universe mix, but that hasn't been done yet. Whether the studio is waiting until it sees how the Hulkster and Avengers perform, I know not. The Marvel super hero universe is red hot, so more series (I think) are a foregone conclusion.
Marvel Animation has hired a lot of Warner Bros. Animation/D.C. Comics staffers, including writer Paul Dini.(Friday, I asked a former Warners super hero artist how it felt to be working on Marvel's side of the street. He said, "Hey, it's nice to have a job."
Which, of course, it is.)
