Fans of Marvel’s current animated TV shows may well have reason to celebrate as two new series are now going to happen.

The fine folks at Variety have reported that Marvel Television has two new animated shows in the works. Thanks to tax breaks from the government ran French Film Comission, both Ant-Man and Rocket & Groot have series in the works.

Ugo Bienvenu and Kevin Manach will both direct Ant-Man while Arnuad Delord will helm the Rocket & Groot series. The report has described both as “Marvel Animation TV short series”.

No word yet on when the shows will hit the air or what channel they can be seen on.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
