CBR was on hand for the Marvel Animation Panel (because Zechs can't go to SDCC, and nobody else on the OH! staff is brave to sit through current Marvel Animated product) which included: the dread lord of everything Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb, the new kid on the Marvel multi-media block, Stephen Wacker, Cort Lane (VP), and Eric Radomski (SVP) on hand to talk of the various Marvel animated properties. Things started off with Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors. Pretty much everything we've reported on is talked about.
The first episode of the big event is shown to the audience. It involves the Green Goblin capturing Electro and using his powers to tap into the Siege Perilous in opening up more dimensions. Spider-Ham, Spider-Man 2099, and Spider-Girl (not Mayday, remember it's Petra Parker. YES!! Let the hate flow through you few readers who are fans of Mayday! YEEEEESSSS!!!) are all featured in the episode.
Fred Tatasciore, the voice of Hulk, joins the panel to talk Avengers Assemble and Hulk: Agents of S.M.A.S.H. A clip each from Assemble and Hulk are shown. The former has Captain America struggling to control the powers of a Infinite Gem, and the latter has Hulk take on Ronan the Accuser.
The panel then reminded us that a clip of the new Marvel Animated Movie: Iron Man/Captain America: Heroes United will be shown at the Cup O'Joe Panel later today. They promise it'll be just as bad and forgettable as the previous film Iron Man/Hulk: Heroes United (WRITER'S NOTE: okay they didn't say that).
Fan questions were asked:
- Why is the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. Hulk smarter than Avengers Assemble Hulk?
Tatasciore: Banner is such a good guy, and Hulk is getting a bit of that, too. And he's becoming more intelligent.
- Wacker talks about longer story arcs for Avengers Assemble (proving once again, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes had the right idea, besides being the superior Avengers show, and was ahead of it's time).
- Does Tatasciore order pizza in his Hulk voice?
- The Guardians of the Galaxy are brought up.
Radomski: With the upcoming movie, we're trying to get them into the minds of everybody who might not know about the Guardians.
Lane: A Season 3 episode of "Spider-Man" will actually air early to get the Guardians out there.
The panel ends with an animation test of Marvel's next animated series: The Guardians of the Galaxy!! The footage is of Starlord and Rocket Raccoon. With that the panel ends.
