Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes is being cancelled for a new avengers show called Avengers: Assemble. I don't have the link, but you can go to Marvel tv to look it up. Here is the promo image of the new show. It will air in 2013.

What is your response to this. I'm kind of disappointed due to avengers: emh being a cool show. Hopefully this new show will be cool as well.

Here found some confirmation

rom Marvel TV News: " " The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" won't be renewed for the 3rd Season. Marvel Animation will present their newly developed series "Marvel's Avengers Assemble" in 2013."

LOL....I like how they threw Falcon in there for obvious token black man
 
cannot say I am surprised

*Sigh* Loeb..

Sadly saw this coming, and the fact that it's the roster from the movie is even less surprising. Falcon being there just seems random as well...hopefully they won't make it as goofy as USM with the constant breaking of the fourth wall every five seconds. I also would rather see Ms./Captain Marvel over Black Widow.

Which really doesn't make sense seeing as I'm sure Nick Fury will be a regular on the show, seeing as they seem to be basing the team and show closely with the movie.
 
Even Black Panther would make a bit more sense as fans are already familiar with his character.

I'm not a big fan of the art style, and there isn't anything interesting in the storyline, so this was expected for me.

I think you answered your own quandary...Nick Fury isn't actually an official member of the Avengers...just supporting. Black Panther was prominent on EMH, likely studio execs always think kids are really stupid and won't be able to decipher the cartoons if they have similar rosters...hence the change, or thats what I think at least

Well crap, one of the best shows out there now and they just toss it away like that. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Man comics and TV shows are now being judge by how many money the movie makes in the Box office, instead of the other way around.

I've seen that image for something else before. Don't believe this news.

EMH is on hiatus right now because they're testing to see if Ultimate Spider-Man only had good initial ratings because of it, I don't think they'd cancel it yet.

I don't trust that website as a sole source anyway.

#13 Posted by hectorsquall (1137 posts) - - Show Bio

First they cancel the great Spectacular Spider-Man and replace it with the crappy Ultimate Spider-Man and now EMH will be cancelled and replaced by a new show with the movie cast (+ Falcon)? If it's true, then I'm done with Marvel's animated shows. Their Cinematic Universe is great but they keep making stupid decisions like that and that's why DC will always do better when it comes to animated series.

And if they really wanted a "token" black superhero, why not choose Luke Cage? He's is way cooler than Falcon and who wouldn't want to see something like that on TV:

Luke Cage in all his awesomeness :p

@hectorsquall: Because this new show is supposed to be in the same universe as Ultimate Spider-Man, which Luke Cage is already in and is also a teenager as well.

BULLCRAP!!!!!! 
The show was getting good. I saw new leaked episodes and they were all awesome. Red Hulk, Falcon, Wolverine and Spider-man are all appearing in the future.
I'm sad.

@War Killer: In the same universe as Ultimate Spider-Man! WTF!!!

Now it's sure, I won't watch it!

He deserves better than this!

Marvel is just continuing their tradition of cancelling good cartoons, and replacing them with trash. I just hope the new show is more fluid in terms of animation. Other than that, I'm okay. But Black Widow? Seriously? And Black Panther is WAY cooler than the Falcon. I hope this new show helps prove me otherwise.

#21 Posted by Twentyfive (2843 posts) - - Show Bio

@hectorsquall: LOL! I honestly believe this is the best hero movie on the Television today. I SED IT!

It isn't deliberately trying to be needlessly convoluted, and the action is top notch. And the story lines are appealing to BOTH KIDS AND ADULTS! Now they want to just rip it away from us in favor of some cartoon that doesn't have stories, yet one and done episodes featuring villains, and castmembers that really should have time invested in them to be developed? EFFING MARVEL!

It says in the link that The Falcon (wish it were BP. There is a Black Panther movie rumor and Cap2 would be perfect as a sort of segway) is rumored to be in the Captain America 2 so it could just be marketing and not at all tokenism. Also it states that Black Panther will join the team later.

I am bummed to see EMH end though and disappointed to not see Black Panther in the initial roster.

Welp... Since ratings don't matter anymore...

A LOT OF THE NEWER EPISODES THAT HAVEN'T AIRED IN THE US AND THE UK CAN ALL BE FOUND ON YOUTUBE. WATCH THEM THERE, AND DON'T GIVE MARVEL ANYMORE RATINGS PERIOD.

I think this may actually be part of the problem. Lots of people watching online and not on tv.

@TheSwordsman: that's not the case. it's been noted EMH is a fan favorite and has decent ratings and is faring much much better than Ultimate Spider-Man is. In fact, Ultimate Spider-Man is mostly only doing ok because it leechs off of EMH's viewers.

They're only cancelling this because Loeb wasn't the driving force behind it.

Ratings had nothing to do with the show getting cancelled, the show did fine, they just felt it they made it closer to the films they could incorporate one giant toy selling scheme, with the rosters matching up and directing it at kids

They could have done all of that withing the EMH framework They rarely cancel shows with great or even good ratings.

I stated that it was part of the problem. I am certain if the ratings were stellar rather than decent it would have been picked up for another season and ratings would have been a lot better if more people watched it on television when it aired instead of online.

Again, if the ratings were exemplary instead of decent, they would have picked the show up for at least another season no matter who was or wasn't the driving force behind it.

Also does anyone have statistics on the rating. Shows rarely get cancelled when they are doing well ratings-wise.

Yes. The last episode on television was a BRB ep.

Well if that's the (stupid) move they're making then they sure better make sure that they end Earth's Mightiest Heroes off in a freaking fantastically awesome way then. They owe that much to us.

@TheSwordsman: Considering how badly USM is tanking and they're just looking the other way and wantng to make more things like it, I doubt it.

Marvel isn't a company, it's just a bunch of annoying people patting each other on the back.

I am certain ratings had a lot more to do with it than people suspect. I will admit though that Marvel does not make the best business decisions in most cases.

@TheSwordsman: You're missing the point. EMH's ratings were/are better than USM's. But USM isn't cancelled because Loeb was the one behind it.
