Thor: The Animated Series
 
Not really much is known about the show,which is suppose to debut next year, but what are some things you would like to see from it?

What style? The more current look, or a more old school feel?

Just trying to jump start this part of the forum. :woot:

I think the blues of the classic costume would work better in animation, so I'd go with that. Just make the crotch part look like the long tunic of the current costume instead of the classic version's outside-undies look.

Beyond that, I'm not really sure what else they should do for the cartoon. I hope the style isn't too exaggerated, although the current trend seems to be to exaggerate figures in cartoons a lot more than they used to.

Well, I'd love it to be Kirby-style, but I'm expecting the American anime look, which is such a cliche now.

This is a pic from Marvel's website, although I'm not quite sure if it's related to the series:

Not a bad style for the cartoon if it's supposed to be about Thor's younger days. The sleeves make him look a little silly for a full-grown warrior, though.

Yeah well, you can never win with cartoons :-)

I wish Marvel could use the same animators as DC/Warner Bros. The quality of the animation on DC's cartoon series has always been so much better than Marvel's.

I hate DC/Warners animation, its way to blocky.

The style they have done recently on their DT-DVD stuff is good, but Justice League, Superman, etc... have this really block shape form that i hate.

TheCorpulent1 03-16-2009 09:55 AM

Re: Thor: The Animated Series
 
Simplified figures are a necessity for budget animation. I'd rather have blocky, Kirby-esque figures with super-smooth animation than detailed figures with clunky animation.

I'm really hoping it's not anime looking at all. I love anime, but if any cartoon should get a classic(I'm talking Hannah-Barbera lol) look, it's Thor :p

Re: Thor: The Animated Series
 
Cartoons in general seem to have gotten over the anime fad a bit. Plenty of new cartoons have their own unique looks without resorting to anime trappings now. I think Thor's safe.

Good, cuz that F4 anime-style cartoon made my eyes bleed.

I think that was actually made by a French studio. :)

the animated series could do a lot worse then bringing the entire simonson's run to the small screen.

TheCorpulent1 03-17-2009 07:58 AM

Re: Thor: The Animated Series
 
Yes. Yes, it could.

imagine the conversation betwen garm (hel hound) and thor just before he leads the einherja to hell.

thor - 'we ask permission to enter hel, 'I' will make the arrangements of our departure'

I'd LOVE to see
beta ray bill
the fight for the hammer
thor v surter
odin v surter
loki v surter
all three v surter
and the hel saga (especially where hela rips off thor's face)
on a saturday morning cartoon.

Yeah, a second season where he forges the armor and wears that would be awesome, too.

I defiantely think you could fit simonson's run into two seasons.
I can't see thor getting more than two seasons unfortunately.

TheCorpulent1 03-17-2009 04:19 PM

Re: Thor: The Animated Series
 
I'll be happy with one season. Thor's only ever warranted a one- or two-episode cameo in any cartoons up 'til now. The fact that he gets to headline his very own cartoon is something special.

Re: Thor: The Animated Series
 
I wouldn't mind the Hulk vs. Thor animators for a Thor cartoon. They pretty much nailed most aspects it would just need some minor tweeking in my opinion.

TheCorpulent1 03-19-2009 01:03 PM

Re: Thor: The Animated Series
 
I didn't like that style. Too angular for my tastes, and not in the cool art deco way of the DC cartoons.

marcvader 03-19-2009 01:12 PM

Re: Thor: The Animated Series
 
Do you know what the series will be based on? Is it young Thor and Loki or is will there be any Midgard in it?

TheCorpulent1 03-19-2009 01:13 PM

Re: Thor: The Animated Series
 
No clue. It wouldn't surprise me if they kept Midgard out of it, though. Thor'll be on Earth plenty in the Avengers cartoon that's supposed to come out in the next couple years anyway.

marcvader 03-19-2009 01:21 PM

Re: Thor: The Animated Series
 
To get back to the animation, I didn't mind it that much as I was just happy to see Thor in any animation period.
