: Because Marvel is now part of Disney, are you looking into more Avengers series?
Marsh: Two months ago, we launched Marvel Universe on Disney XD, which became the exclusive home for new Marvel television content. We've developed Ultimate Spider-Man. Subsequent to the success of the Avengers movie, we've been developing a new Avengers Assemble. We're talking about a Hulk series and an Iron Man series, too. They're going to spend $150 million to $200 million to make these [movie] properties and then half of that to market them; I'm sitting here thinking, "Thank you, Lord, you've made me look good."
To be honest, I'm pretty excited for the idea of the new Iron Man series, considering that the last time the character's long and rich history was given a proper treatment was back in the 90's with the Iron Man Animated Series Season 2
. While Armored Adventures has made some attempts at the famous classic comic book stories, it's still far from being a definitive Iron Man show (although the second season is quite good). Whether the new animated interpretation of Tony Stark is going to be closer to the comics or the MCU (or the Avengers Assemble show at that point) remains to be seen, but either way - cannot wait to see how it all unfolds.
Oh, and I hope they keep this Adrian Pasdar guy (who voiced Stark in the Japanese Iron Man & USM) as far away as possible - he's pretty terrible at voicing the character. However, I'm all hands for Eric Loomis (he does a terrific job at bringing some life into IM with his RDJ-esque voice in both IM2 video game and EMH).
