The Marvel Television panel at c2e2 this year was one of the few panels that I didn’t have to multi-task on because there were no electronic devices allowed. Why were there no electronic devices allowed? That would be because Marvel was using this panel to show early runs of both an Ultimate Spiderman and an Avengers cartoon as well as an animation test of the new Hulk cartoon that will be debuting in 2013 called “Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.”
The biggest thing I took away from this panel was the question, “why the hell am I not watching Ultimate Spiderman”, the second was a new found appreciation for cartoon comic book adaptations. The episode of Ultimate Spiderman that we were shown had me laughing out loud through most of the 30 minutes. The minds behind the Ultimate Spiderman cartoon seem to be putting humor in all the right places.
I don’t normally have the time to watch cartoons, but you can bet your sweet skin tight spandex that will be watching Ultimate Spiderman as often as possible.
And now for Brandon’s part.
I attended the Cup O’ Joe Panel and while none of the announcements really surprised me. Here is a run down of what I learned and what I thought about it.
Hawkeye solo series? Snore. Kate Bishop will be teaming with him, okay…
Spiderman will be teaming up with Daredevil and Punisher in a story arc about how bad guys should be treated. This seems to happen every few years.
Nova is gonna be front and center coming soon. That’s kind of cool.
A new Powers series and a new Takio series, this is good news.
Sabretooth is coming back. not a shocker again.
The big announcement we were promised was this: A new Gambit series. Shit.
Really not too much.
So over all the panels were really fun, and I enjoyed myself, but I felt the news was a little stale.
