So...think we’ll be hearing anything new for Marvel Animation at SDCC this year?

Anything new for this clump of mediocrity? I remember a YouTube video saying Marvel Animation was kind of in a dark place or something like that?

I’ve been thinking about the fourth season of Avengers Assemble, and maybe it would have been better if they saved rescuing Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow and Hawkeye for the end of the season. That way more development could be given to the new Avengers, an example of what I mean the episode where Hope teamed up with Carol, it felt like they were building some kind of dynamic (friendship maybe, also Vision never did get a chance to play ping pong, did he? ) between the two but then it was just dropped.

Jane Foster could have gotten her powers earlier too and joined the team or at least teamed up with them a couple of times. It just seemed that once the original Avengers were back it there were too many characters and the New Avengers kind of got shoved to the side a little.
I think my biggest issue with Secret Wars was how much felt underdeveloped, whether it was the New Avengers as a team, Jane Foster as Thor, or the actual Secret Wars storyline.

The original Avengers coming back just made it worse as there were obviously too many Avengers to adequately focus on for one show. Then it basically became a team-up cartoon.

If not at SDCC, then D23 probably.

I agree. Most of Ultron Revolution and Black Panther's Quest were pretty much undeveloped too.

Ultron Revolution should've had the new Avengers(Black Panther, Vision, Captain Marvel and Ant-Man) join the team in their respective episodes and had an episode with USM's Spider-Man or developed a bigger storyline with Ultron.
And BPQ would've had equal focus on the Avengers than just Black Panther himself and showed more of his life outside the Avengers and his sister Shuri. Not to mention, it shouldn't have been retconned to be in continuity with the new Spider-Man show. GOTG S3 was like that too. Both should've featured the Spider-Man from USM.

Personally, I would have liked the Secret Wars' arc to last more episodes. After the info revealed in a SDCC 2017, I wanted the whole map of Battleworld explored. There was some places easy to identify, but I wanted to see all of them. Between them, we had these:

+ Spider-Island 2099: Potential crossover with Ultimate Spider-Man.
+ Lost to the Symbiotes.
+ Hydra Empire.
+ New Quack City.
+ Camelot.
+ Noir Land.
+ Inhuman Nation.

I definitely think they could have done more with the Secret Wars arc then they ended up doing (ironic when it's what the season was named after in the first place), especially when they set up those dimensions and the other heroes inhabiting them but then proceed to do nothing with them.

It's kind of funny to think there might have been plans for more worlds to be visited in their "Secret Wars" arc, but they never produced more episodes. But it's only a theory, as I think an episode with Spidey would have been kind of a priority for them, if they wanted to have such an episode.

I think there something similar happened on the 90s Spidey cartoon, in their version of "Secret Wars". They apparently had plans for an X-Men episode, but was too expensive I believe to be produced. Instead they only used Storm in the arc.

It would've been interesting if Robbie Daymond's Spidey had first made his debut on Secret Wars since I always assumed that was the season where Marvel's Spider-Man was meant to be canon alongisde with (or as canon as the Marvel cartoons get).

I remember when there were theories they'd use the Secret Wars storyline to reboot the continuity to explain why Spider-Man is so different :p.

Yeah. And that was apparently because Storm's actress actually lived in L.A., unlike the rest of the X-Men cast (including the replacement Storm), who were Canadians. It was apparently not cost effective to actually fly them over from Canada again, which makes me wonder why nobody thought about having them record remotely.

It's probably because, back then, it was more commonplace to have tv shows where all/most of the voice actors record together, unlike today, where its much less prominent. Most of the behind the scenes production for Avengers Assemble (whether in videos or tweets) shows all/most of the cast together, and the technology to record actors separately was probably not as common back then as it is today.

I wonder if that wasn't as feasible back then as it is now :confused:.

Yeah, but you ever wonder what would've happened if Fox Kids and Marvel actually paid the X-Men cast to record the Secret Wars episodes in Canada while the rest of the episodes recorded in America, thus allowing the rest of the X-Men to appear in the penultimate 3-part saga? They would've been useful in helping Spider-Man save the planet the Beyonder sent him to do.
