Exclusive Preview: Marvel's Avengers Assemble on Disney XD — Plus: The Super Premiere Plan
If the Cineplex left you wanting more Iron Man, if the teasey trailer for ABC’s S.H.I.E.L.D. series whet your appetite anew for Captain America, Hulk and Thor, rest assured there will be many ways to tune into the new Disney XD series Marvel’s Avengers Assemble — and TVLine has a first look at the smashing action.
Marvel’s Avengers Assemble — which features Iron Man (voiced by Heroes‘ Adrian Pasdar), Thor (Ultimate Spider-Man‘s Travis Willingham), Captain America (Wreck-It Ralph’s Roger Craig Smith), Hulk (The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes‘ Fred Tatasciore), Hawkeye (Ultimate Spider-Man‘s Troy Baker), Black Widow (videogame vet Laura Bailey) and newcomer Falcon (Transformers: Animated‘s Bumper Robinson) — will first get a one-hour preview on Sunday, May 26 at 11 am ET, on Marvel Universe on Disney XD. (In “The Avengers Protocol: Part 1,” when Captain America is apparently destroyed by Red Skull, Iron Man tries to reunite the Avengers to avenge his friend; in Part 2, M.O.D.O.K. and Red Skull steal Tony Stark’s armor, forcing the team to galvanize and stop the dastardly duo from destroying New York City.)
Watch this exclusive preview, then read on for new details on the show’s multi-platform roll-out:
Concurrent with the May 26 preview, TVLine has learned that DisneyXD.com/Marvel will launch “Avengers Assemble: Avengers Tower Rush,” a side-scrolling game in which players take on the role of Hawkeye to help the Avengers defend Stark Tower. Then on Monday, May 27, the “Avengers Protocol” episodes become available on iTunes.
On Friday, June 28, during Disney Channel’s Jessie, there will be a two-minute preview of the Marvel’s Avengers Assemble premiere episode, “Ghost of a Chance,” in which Falcon stands alone to save his new comrades after they fall victim to body-swapping Space Phantoms. (Also at this time, WATCH Disney XD viewers can watch the series premiere in full.)
Then, on Sunday, July 7 at 11 am, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble officially premieres, while a second companion game is launched at DisneyXD.com/Marvel.
