Marvel Studios Reportedly Considering Animated MCU Tie-Ins

A new report from Emerald City Comic-Con states that the Marvel VP of Animation, Cort Lane, told fans that Marvel Studios is exploring animated tie-ins for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Last weekend at Emerald City Comic-Con during the Marvel Animation panel, Marvel VP of Animation Cort Lane reportedly told fans in attendance that the House of Ideas is exploring animated tie-ins that connect to the MCU.  "I can't announce anything, but things are in the works," was Lane's reply to a fan question.  Exactly what these "things" are is anyone's guess.

Could the MCU be looking to launch an animated series on Disney XD that ties to the Marvel Cinematic Universe?  Currently, Avengers Assemble and Ultimate Spider-Man air on the cable network but neither of the shows have the same buzz among fans that Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes commanded.  Ultimate Spider-Man is currently in its third season while Avenges Assemble is currently in the middle of its second season run.  Neither show has been renewed yet.

Another possibility is that Marvel could jump into the direct-to-video genre which is currently where WB Animation enjoys great success.  From 2006-2011, Marvel Animation released a sting of DTV features to great success.  The more recent, Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United and Iron Man & Captain America: Heroes United were not reviewed favorably by fans and critics alike.

A third option would be for Marvel to have animated shorts that play before their films or animated One-Shots that are included on a film's blu-ray/DVD release.

Where would you like the MCU to make an animated splash - as a Disney XD cartoon, DTV release or Marvel One-Shot? Take your ideas below to the comment section and keep the conversation going.
