I forgot how surprised I was when we got Season 2 of Armored Adventures so it would have been that much more so if we got a Season 3. It would have been cool to see Tony interact with Captain America as well. It's interesting how he'd just be out of commission in old shows for one reason or another.

There was a pitch to do a Colossus vs Omega Red episode in X-Men:The Animated Series called Bring Me Charles Xavier:
November 2016 – X-Men: The Animated Series
Y'know, it's always just kind of amused me that we've had Colossus in three X-Men cartoons but he was never really a regular part of the team in any of them.

The only time he's a part of the team are in the seasons they tease but never happen :sweat:.

It's always been bizarre to me. He's had enough diverse cartoon appearances to make one of those animation evolution videos but he's probably had about 8 minutes of dialogue combined for the last 30 plus years. Maybe he'll really get his shot next time.

September 11th:
Thomas Perkins draw the Super-Adaptoid while he was working on EMH. And he said he might draw characters like the Silver Surfer, Namor, the Squadron Supreme and Nova in EMH-style one day.

Christopher Yost said before Man of Action took over the show, they had a Nova episode planned, Emperor Stark was originally titled "Emperor Doom". And the series finale was a 3-parter where the Avengers fought Galactus on Hala.

November 17th:
Hey, guys. I talked to Christopher Yost on Twitter and found out more information on what could've been in the second half of EMH Season 2.

-Silver Surfer WAS allowed to be used in the 3-parter series finale, but they chose not to, not wanting to introduce him right away.

-Along Came a Spider... and New Avengers were left as they was planned.

-Scarlet Witch was never planned for Emperor Doom because it wouldn't be a proper introduction for her to the show. Sentry and Quicksilver were also never planned for Season 2.

-The finale episode wasn't originally titled "Avengers Assemble". Only the Avengers would've faced Galactus and it would've had a different title.

Even if it wasn't a full series, how cool would a stylized series of shorts along the lines of Rocket & Groot or Ant-Man have been for Captain Marvel?

This video goes into more detail on the Captain Marvel cartoon pitch, with some more character designs.


FYI, there is some explicit language in the video.
That interview pretty much confirms what many of us have been saying about Marvel Animation ever since Loeb and Quesada started calling the shots, which is they don't really know how animation works. Notice how both MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN and AVENGERS ASSEMBLE:BLACK PANTHER'S QUEST (as well as the last couple of seasons of USM) are much better shows than the previous seasons of AA and the other synergy driven Marvel shows now that Loeb and Quesada's influence on the animation division has been dialed back/lessened.

I'm driving myself crazy trying to find info, but I could've sworn I'd read at some point there was going to be a Hulk cartoon to follow the 2003 movie, but it never got made. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

It's kind of funny to think that all these Hulk pitches seemed so tonally different from what the Hulk movies were actually like :p.

2019 feels like a bad year to talk about SpongeBob in public. If you dare say anything bad about seasons 1-3 you’ll be destroyed. Also, there’s a controversy going on with this character: Nurse Bazooka
I wonder if there are any "zombie channels" within WarnerMedia's portfolio that can be flipped.
Ahh, finally, the weekend is here. And this isn't just any old weekend. This is the weekend that SpongeBob and Patrick go camping. Wouldn't it be great if they got lost in the woods and never came back?
The Aladdin remake is one of few films that I am actively hoping underperforms. The more we can convince Disney to stop giving animation the finger with these remakes, the better.
