Batman Dark Knight



Animation news -- and much more!


It appears Captain America might have already made his first appearance in a Marvel Studios film.

Last summer, sources told The Continuum that, in The Incredible Hulk, seeds for Captain America were going to be planted in the movie, with the Super Soldier serum and in an Arctic scene in the opening of the film.

That scene didn't make the theatrical cut, but will be included as an Alternate Opening on the bonus disc of The Incredible Hulk DVD, due in stores on Oct. 21.

The scene, which has a suicidal Bruce Banner, isolating himself in the frozen area. He abandons his gear, pulls out a gun and cocks it. Before he can pull the trigger, he transforms into the Hulk and pounds the ice, causing a rippling crunching in the icescape.

There, in the the lower left hand corner and covered in snow and ice, appears to be a human figure with a round figure. The round figure appears to be Captain America's shield, complete with circles.

In comics lore, Captain America was frozen in suspended animation before being discovered by The Avengers.

Marvel Animation on Wednesday announced the production of aa new animated, The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Production on 26 half-hour episodes is already underway using the production services of Film Roman.

The new series, expected to be available for broadcast in 2011, continues Marvel's television line-up, which includes Nicktoons' upcoming Wolverine and the X-Men and Iron Man: Armored Adventures. Marvel Animation will also debut Marvel Super Hero Squad and The Black Panther next year.

Here's how Marvel describes the series:

"The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes is an all-new property featuring some of Marvel's all-time favorite characters including Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Giant Man and Wasp. When the planet is threatened by Super Villains, time traveling conquerors, alien invaders, mythical monsters and mad robots bent on the total destruction of humanity, when forces of evil are so overwhelming that no single hero has the power to save the world, when there is no hope left...the Avengers assemble!

"The Avengers are the best of the best in the Marvel Universe and the greatest heroes who take on the most unbeatable foes. These are the heroes who hold back the storm, and the fate of the world rests on their shoulders."

"The addition of The Avnegers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes to our quickly expanding animation slate continues our plan to complement each of our tentpole live action features with an animated series," said Eric Rollman, President of Animation. "This new ensemble series tracks perfectly with our highly anticipated 'road to the Avengers' strategy which includes some of Marvel's biggest and most beloved characters, and which kicks off with two Avengers' themed feature films in summer 2011."
