Sure that sounds like a good idea. Don't think anyone has touched those threads in a good long while either.

It will be nice to see how people think the show has held up. Hard to believe the show premiered 5 years ago, I remember waiting for it like it was yesterday.

Greg knew well while making SSM was not the intention of having Spider-man with a team unlike other show we already know.......we saw how that turned out....

I did like his explanation if Marvel characters are in the same universe as SSM especially with Captain America. Wow, if you think about it with EMH's episode "Along Came a Spider" would have made an awesome nod between SSM and EMH not to mention if Josh Keaton would have done the voice.

Well he did, they just dubbed over it with Drake Bell's voice. But you probably already knew that.

I believe the episode aired in other countries with Josh's voice still intact though.

In "New Avengers", after Spidey calls, "Avengers, assemble!", and Thing comments, "That coulda gone better," does anyone else here ever think, "It would have gone better if you kept Josh Keaton!" I know some people already made similar remarks about Quartermain asking Spidey, "What's wrong with your voice?"

Where did you hear that? Do you have anymore specific info?
If you're referring to Keaton's voice still being intact, unless I'm confusing it with something else entirely I could swear I read it here on this very forum.

I know it was either on Facebook or Twitter where Josh had stated he was disappointed that his voice was dubbed over in AEMH.

Does anyone know if this show will be coming back to Teletoon any time soon? It would be nice if it was brought back thanks to the new movie. I have been watching the HD streaming on the Vortexx website and the show looks amazing in just 720p. I can't wait to see it in 1080p on Blu-ray.

I asked this before (and not just here), but could someone who owns an Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes DVD or Blu-Ray with Spider-Man's guest spots please confirm or deny if pushing the "audio" button on the remote changes his voice to that of Josh Keaton? I'll start by confirming that Entertainment One's season two Blu-Ray (the one I imported from Canada) doesn't have this option.

If none of the home video releases to date have this option, could someone please explain to my why on Earth Jeph Loeb didn't fire Keaton early if he was never going to use that audio here?

I love this show! LOVE it! It's easily the best Spider-Man show out there. And quite possibly the best Marvel show as well. Close competition for A:EMH.
I pre-ordered my copy of the complete series on blu-ray earlier! So excited.
Speaking of Marvel and blu-rays... and A:EMH... was THAT show ever released on blu-ray? As a complete series?

Not really, the closest you get for a complete series is the Australia version where they have the complete season 1 and 2, here we have most of them in volumes. Hope with the upcoming Avengers movie they will consider releasing a Blu-Ray version of EMH.

Canada and the UK also got complete season sets. The former had them on Blu-Ray, while the latter only received them on DVD. Regarding the possibility of American Blu-Ray releases, I'd hope for the sake of fans who don't already own this show on home video that not only would it come true, but that the season two discs would play the episodes in chronological order.
(Among all the home video releases I've read about this show having all around the world, America's DVDs seem like the only ones that arranged the episodes out of order. :mad:)

Just a heads up - I just checked the Amazon price listing for The Spectacular Spider-Man and it is now at $29.99! That's a great price! How many people have pre-ordered this Blu-ray?

Man that would have been great! Seems like he was aiming for the Lizard story in Florida and fit well because of Spring Break. Greg had planned everything which sadly don't see that happening now....

I would like to apologize for FLCL_Wizards, Toadette2009, and MiniNew2020's touchy yet ungrateful behavior back in the TV.com days. They lie to take advantage of people and change their opinions to match their's. I hope you didn't hold a grudge against them.
