Marvel Confirms ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightest Heroes’ Will End After 2 Seasons

Posted Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 08:30 pm GMT -4 by

Back in April, we reported that head of Marvel Animation Jeph Loeb was hinting that the popular ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ animated show would be cancelled. Now those fan fears have proven true.

Marvel TV News reported today that the cancellation is official. Here’s the news from a press release that Marvel Animation put out:

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.

So it’s just as we thought. ‘Avengers: EMH’ is gone but it’ll be replaced with a new ‘Avengers’ series. The Marvel press release also included the artwork for the new show seen below…

So it looks like they just switched the team up to focus on the Marvel movie characters. Oh yeah… they added Falcon but rumor is that he’ll be making an appearance in the upcoming ‘Captain America 2’. Also rumored to be joining the team down the road are Ant Man and Black Panther (which would lend credence to the last movie speculation).

So… as sad as it is, at least now the speculation and waiting is over. Let’s just hope that the replacement show has half the heart as ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’.

  • Boo! That was one of the only good Marvel animated shows, and now they’re killing it to replace it with something likely awful if Ultimate Spider-Man is any indication (which resulted in Spectacular Spider-Man being axed, another fine show. Gah!).

    Avengers EMH is the best Show Marvel animation has produced. I don’t know the corporate side of things, and im sure this new Avengers assemble animated series will be good. But, AEMH sticks to making the character’s comic based. It’s the reason I like marvel, it focus’s on the human more than than the superhuman. I would simply like to plea with marvel a bit and ask them if they could reboot this show for a 3 rd season after the new Avenger’s Cartoon doesn’t even touch it.

      I agree

    NOT a good move, Marvel. EMH has a lot of fans behind it, fans who will not be very happy about this. The new Avengers cartoon is going to have a very hard time reaching as many people as EMH did, I can guarantee that.

    Let’s just hope we see some out of costume moments with this show. EMH was good, but focused heavily on the super hero aspect of things.

    All I here is a bunch of babies crying over spilt milk. EMH was a good animated series but it had it’s faults, a big one being it’s kid like animation which is a running thing with Marvel, Justice League / Unlimited and Young Justice are two of the best animated cartoons out there and from the looks of that poster Marvel are stepping there game up, now I know it’s not going to look exactly like that but if it is close to the Ultimate Avengers animated movie then it will be a massive step up.

    Another problem with it is it’s story telling some of the plots are spot on but a lot are out of order, like in episode 15 of this series Thor, Cap and Iron Man ( goes back to MKI one suite) lose there powers, the Destroyer comes to kill Thor and the only way he can get his powers back is by learning humility but there’s one BIG problem with that he should have learned this in season 1 because they pretty much showed him as that person already.

    Many of the episodes are all over the place and not consistent in tell the story of the character.

    Before everyone starts hating on something that they have yet to see how about you wait a minute and get a little more information.

    I cant quite believe they are cancelling this, but I have just watched the final episode & the way they ended was definitely a conclusion…Very sad to see a good series end :(
