Disney XD's 'Avengers Assemble', 'Hulk' premiere dates announced

Marvel Comics' supergroup The Avengers are set to make a big return this summer, this time on the small screen.

Marvel's "Avengers Assemble"

Disney XD has officially announced premiere dates for the new "Marvel Universe" animated pair of shows featuring the heroes from last summer's big screen blockbuster.

"Avengers Assemble" will get a sneak preview, giving viewers a taste of what's in store for the series with a one-hour preview on Sunday, May 26th. The series will officially debut just over a month later on July 7th. Adrian Pasdar ("Heroes") leads the voice cast for the latest animated incarnation of the group, which will feature Earth's Mightiest Heroes living together at Avengers Tower, squaring off against such classic villains as Dr. Doom and Attuma & the Atlantean Army.

Joining the Avengers will be an all new series revolving around the team's big green powerhouse. "Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H." see the titular behemoth teaming with cousin She-Hulk, A-Bomb, Red Hulk, and Skaar, working together to tackle threats too enormous for other heroes to handle. The voice cast includes Seth Green ("Robot Chicken") and Eliza Dushku ("Dollhouse"), and will debut on August 11th.

Both series will join Marvel's "Ultimate Spider-Man" as part of Disney XD's Marvel Universe programming block.

I'm sad to see "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" had to fall by the wayside in order for this latest edition to take over, but early promotional artwork for the new series looks promising.

Loved Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Awesome stories and animation. I don't understand why they switched to this one instead of continuing the other one. It would make a lot more sense, they already had an established fan base. I really don't understand some of the decisions the so called execs make sometimes.
