It might eventually come down to the merchandise sales, like it always seems to for Marvel cartoons especially Spider-Man. They're already not afraid to use a different VA or design when it's canonically supposed to be MCU based. Maybe this rationale will spread to other characters when it becomes a bigger issue with actor likenesses, etc.

*Update* 08-11


I think this is new-ish. Groot will be photo realistic? I knew knew it would be CGI, but I wouldn't have ruled out something like the old Rocket and Groot shorts. It feels like this might become their house style. At least Moon Girl will keep the 2D dream alive.

I guess with their major blockbuster franchises (Star Wars, MCU), they see CG as the way to go...

Wasn't it announced recently that Disney will start a separate animation house for Marvel only. I'm looking forward to that based on What if?. With that and Devil Dinosaur & Moon Girl, I do have some semblance of hope.

Marvel Studios has hired Sofia Alexander, who I believe is going to be stationed in the new animation studio.

Shot in the dark, but considering Onxy Equinox was traditional animation, I hope we get more 2D animation from Marvel Studios...

Pretty cool to have her on board. I believe she's going to be in a leadership position again. I really enjoyed Onyx Equinox and I'm looking forward to see what she brings to the table. Though I'm also sad this means there won't be a second season or a continuation of OE.

I'm not sure if there could be more 2D animation from Marvel Studios even if she has a primarily 2D background. To give an example, a lot of Disney Junior originals are CGI (most notably, the ones made by Disney Television Animation), yet many of the storyboard artists worked on a lot of the 2D Disney movies and/or TV shows from the late 1980s-early 2000s (such as Larry Leker, Jill Colbert, Francis Glebas, Hank Tucker, and Carin Anne Greco, among many others). I wouldn't be surprised if she would still work on a CGI Marvel show.

Is there a name for the art style Google and other companies use in their advertising? It has to have an official name if so many groups are using it.
