Agent X, a Marvel TV News.com insider who first broke the news of the Avengers Assemble cartoon, has come forth with more news regarding the Marvel Animation Studios lineup. About USM particularly, X reported that “Marvel knows how much fans hate the show. They know, that they messed up when they could have brought both kids and adults fans together, instead of focusing on the children. Regardless of what their PR BS makes it sound, the reason Ultimate Spider-man has been renewed for a second season, is that the network ordered the second season WAY before the series debut. The publicity stunt Marvel pulled by stating the show has been renewed by popular demand, is just a strategy to try and tell fans that people like this show maybe you should give it a second chance.”
Word is that Marvel is also starting a new X-Men show titled “Uncanny X-Men” and a new Hulk show called “Hulk and the Agents of SMASH”. You can read about that, USM’s ratings and more about the new Avengers Assemble cartoon at this link. Thoughts?
