The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes: Cancelled, No Season Three

canceled Avengers: Earth's Mightiest HeroesEarly last year, Marvel and Disney XD announced a new programming block — Marvel Universe — would begin airing on Disney XD. The block would be comprised of the new Ultimate Spider-Man animated series and the second season of The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

A year later, Spider-Man has been renewed for another season while The Avengers has been cancelled. Marvel confirmed that there won’t be a third season in a print statement.

The second season of The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes debuted on April 1st and is currently running on Disney XD. Of the 26 episodes that were ordered for season two, only eight have aired in the US thus far.

Almost the entire series has aired in Australia so we know that the series finale is titled “Avengers Assemble” and revolves around the Avengers fighting Galactus, a planet-eating entity, and his heralds in the team’s biggest battle.

The same press release also notes that, “Marvel Animation will present their newly developed series Marvel’s Avengers Assemble in 2013.” The new animated series will feature the same characters from the recent live-action Avengers movie — Captain America, Hulk, Ironman, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye — as well as The Falcon (an African American hero from the comics). Word is that Black Panther and Ant-Man will also join the team at some point.

What do you think? Did you like this version of the Avengers? Are you looking forward to the new animated series?

    Another example of the inherent evils of allowing the simple, money-grubbing, non-artistic, shortsighted execs control programming. These people are nothing more than greedy fools that care so much more about riding the coattails of any recent successful entertainment models than about actually creating something original and allowing the story to follow a natural course.

    Boycott them all! Download everything that airs on any “major” network- only give your money to the new business models: Netflix, with their all-at-once release is cool ( plus these beautiful ******** are the ones bringing back Arrested Development, so clearly they understand quality); websites with original programming are another burgeoning option.

    These idiots will keep making their poor choices and unacceptable decisions until we simply don’t accept it anymore. On average, any cable program with an official 60 minute airtime is going to include nearly 20 minutes of commercials. So for any typical 13 episode, we’re forced to choke down nearly 4 hours of inane advertising for less than 10 hours of the program we actually sat down to watch. And worse, in my opinion, when these networks opt to cancel a show, they’ve also essentially nullified the investment of time that each viewer has invested in said show and characters.

    Maybe that doesn’t mean much to others, but just consider for a moment how much time in your life has effectively been wasted because you chose to participate in a story that will simply never be finished, and there’s nothing you can do about it… It adds up.
