Here is a trailer that was shown at Comic-Con last weekend. I'm not sure if there's already been discussion over this as I've been away from my computer the last few days. The Super Hero Squad will premiere on Cartoon Network on September 19, 2009 with a four episode marathon.
The cast includes Mark Hamill as the Red Skull, Robert Englund as Dormammu, Taye Diggs as Black Panther, James Marsters as Mister Fantastic, Tricia Helfer as Sif, Lena Headey as Black Widow, Adrian Pasdar as Hawkeye and George Takei as Galactus.
Despite the impressive list of voice actors, I have some doubts over this. I tried reading the first issue and was not impressed. It's not secret that I'm a huge Mini-Marvels fan (by Chris Giarrusso). I would have much preferred a cartoon based on Mini-Marvels with the Chris' humor that goes along with it. My little daughter feels the same way. When we read Mini-Marvels, she cracks up at the jokes and images. With Super Hero Squad, it was like there were crickets in the background. A lot of the jokes really fell flat. I haven't tried reading beyond issue #1. Hopefully this cartoon will pick things up.
What do you think? Will you give this a try?
