First trailer for The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes reveals some changes

03.22.2012

As part of Disney XD's Marvel block on Sunday nights, The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes now has a trailer to showcase what's in store for the second season.  Premiering alongside Ultimate Spider-Man, the new season showcases a number of changes and additions, many of which fall in line with the opening of THE AVENGERS movie. 

Take a look:

Captain America and Nick Fury are now rocking their Ultimates uniforms, Iron Man's armor is updated to reflect the triangle chest reactor, Thor is in his current movie/comic duds, and the Hulk gets...purple biker shorts.  In addition, there are a number of new characters popping up, including Ms. Marvel (in old school uniform), the Guardians of the Galaxy, Dr. Doom, Red Hulk, Invisible Woman and the Kree race, as well as the Skrulls.  The new season should wrap up season one's cliffhanger and looks to dive into the Kree/Skrull war and maybe even Secret Invasion. 

This is a solid show that addresses a lot of story threads from the comics, while tying the characters into their movie format quite nicely (and even more so for this new season).  The animation isn't as strong as Justice League, but it's damn close and similar in style and action, which is pretty kick ass.  Give it a shot if you're on the fence (and catch up with season one on Netflix streaming).

The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes: Season 2 premieres on April 1, 2012 (no foolin').  Along with Game of Thrones, I can now count on a regular Sunday night nerdgasm.  Nice.

Extra Tidbit: What characters or storylines would you like to see on the show? I'd love to see Bucky Cap/Winter Soldier and Civil War.

Nice

But I would be even more interested if Marvel Knights did a series about the Avengers, or perhaps only Thor. Gritty, dark, dirty, bloody and made for an older audience.

This was great

This show really works.

Vision? YAY! New Armor? YAY!

Red Hulk? BOO. And they really need to get that chin line off of Cap. It's so distracting.

Awesome.

This show is a nice surprise. I caught the 1st season on Netflix last summer and it was way better than I expected. They cover a ton of material and do it well. I'm glad there will be a second season.

When I first caught this show, I thought 'This is just as good as X-Men was when I was a kid!' - Then I watched an episode of the old X-Men show and Avengers is better. The story lines are solid and I like the nods to rarely referenced characters. If you haven't seen it, and dig animation, do yourself a favor.

The "look"

The look of most American cartoons today, imo, can be traced back to the glorious Bruce Timm Batman: TAS series. It's chisled, straight line, art deco look really influenced almost every series after it. Everything is well defined with sharp angles and thick black seperation lines. I would love to see American animation grow and evolve but with the cost and time it takes to produce a daily or even weekly series corners must be cut and using a very stylized art look has become the new norm.

I will say I prefer the drawn look to CGI tho. It has more personality and pencil with paper will always trump anything done on a computer, at least in my eyes. I will always prefer classic Disney to the "Pixar" look. (Dont get me wrong tho, I ADORE anything Pixar, with the possible exception of Cars.)

Yeah. Cars blows.

ASSEMBLE!!!

Wow, really? If you're a naysayer on this one it really is because you haven't watched the first season.
It really is really really good! Yeah, the animation and overall look of the characters might not be THAT great but you get hooked on the story pretty fast and the look becomes secondary and you soon forget about it.

Give it a chance, for real!

Agreed. I got a promo DVD and expected to hate the show. But I was pleasantly surprised to really enjoy it. I even thought the way Thor and Jane Foster met in the series was better than in last year's movie.

Cartoons today look too stupid, I know its supposed to be about the story, But I don't form connections to the characters when they dont even look human. Cap got an ass on his chin.

Most of these characters and story lines are half a century old...

meh

Looks alright but i can't really dig the current gen's art styles. Its like they want them to be Anime and yet not and what they come up with is a mixed bag.

Really?

I didn't even know this show existed. But then again, I never watch Disney on the rare occasion that I do watch t.v.

Also, I find this style of animation with the modern cartoons to be absolutely horrible. Doesn't any of the artists these days know how to hand draw their shows, or are they just a bunch of hacks when it comes to pencil and paper?
