"Hulk: Gamma Corps" Status Confirmed, Update On "The Avengers: Earth's Greatest Heroes"

October 31, 2008 by James Harvey

Marvel Animation has confirmed the status of the Hulk: Gamma Corps animated series, and reveals how it became a part of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. A Marvel Animation Age exclusive!

Originally announced last year, the Hulk: Gamma Corps animated series has been confirmed as officially canceled by Marvel Animation. But, it's not as cut and dry as one may think. Hulk: Gamma Corps was actually in production, but then The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes came along.

Joshua Fine, Director of Animation Development for Marvel Animation, tells Marvel Animation Age that the Hulk: Gamma Corp animated series was in pre-production when the decision was made to fold the creative work being done there into the upcoming The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes animated series. Even though the creative team was well into pre-production of Hulk: Gamma Corps, with scripting underway, they saw the chance to tell bigger stories that reached far beyond Hulk's universe.

"It became apparent to us that the creative work that was being done to bring Hulk’s world and his villains to life was too good to relegate to his universe alone, and would be much better suited as part of an full-on Avengers scenario," says Fine.

Producer Ciro Nieli, who was previously working on the shelved Hulk: Gamma Corps animated series, is now currently working on the upcoming highly-anticipated The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes animated series. While more details will be revealed about The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes as production moves forward, Fine can reveal one absolute about the upcoming Marvel Animation series,

"This show is going to be big!"

Expect many elements of the shelved Hulk: Gamma Corps animated series to be worked into the upcoming The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes animated series. The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes is scheduled to premiere in 2011.
