DC and Marvel planning new animated shows

October 12th, 2016 by bash Comments



A number of animated projects by both Marvel and DC are in the works.

Following New York Comic Con, three TV shows and a movie have all been confirmed.

First up is Spider-Man. Whilst we wait for the live-action movie, Disney XD announced plans to premiere a new animated series called ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man’ in 2017, which will be a reboot following ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’.

Next up is Ant-Man. Disney and Marvel are planning on bringing a series of animated shorts to Disney XD next year, with Josh Keaton as Ant-Man and Melissa Rauch as The Wasp.

Elsewhere in the Marvel universe, Hayley Atwell will reprise her role of Peggy Carter in the upcoming fourth season of the ‘Avengers’ cartoon on Disney XD, dubbed ‘Secret Wars’.

Finally, Warner Bros. are looking into another Wonder Woman film for the DC animated universe. No word on when we can expect this.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
