Marvel To Launch New Animation Franchise “Marvel Rising” In 2018

If you’ve been paying attention to the full presentation of PiercingMetal over the last year or so, you very likely know just how much we are posting about the Comics scene and the upcoming related big and small screen features. If you had not realized this, well, there are quite a few of these kinds of posts and there are more to come. That makes this news all the more fantastic to share about the upcoming idea “Marvel Rising”. Check out the submitted artwork and the full press release.

The Press Release:
(Glendale, CA) December 7, 2017 – Marvel Entertainment announced today, “Marvel Rising,” a brand-new, multi-platform animation franchise starring the next generation of Marvel heroes set to launch in 2018. The program will launch with six, four-minute digital shorts that spotlight Spider-Gwen with her new secret moniker, Ghost-Spider, and introduce audiences to the world of “Marvel Rising.” Following the shorts, a feature-length animated film, “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors” will premiere later that year. Distribution partners for the content to be announced at a later date.

The content features an all-star line-up of voice talent including Dove Cameron, Chloe Bennet, Tyler Posey, BooBoo Stewart, Kathreen Khavari, Milana Vayntrub, Cierra Ramirez, Kamil McFadden, Skai Jackson, Kim Raver, Ming-Na Wen, Steven Weber, and Dee Bradley Baker among others. Future stories and content are also being developed across Marvel’s digital and publishing platforms and will be announced at a later date.

“Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors” is a long-anticipated event, bringing together Marvel’s newest and beloved characters that have garnered major fan excitement over the last few years. Powered teens Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno join forces as an unlikely, but formidable crew of aspiring heroes. When a threat no one could have expected bears down on the Marvel Universe, this ragtag, untrained band of teens have no choice but to rise together and prove to the world that sometimes the difference between a “hero” and “misfit” is just in the name.

“Marvel characters are so relatable because they live in our world and face the same challenges we do. So I’m very excited that our Marvel Rising team of heroes is so inclusive, reflecting characters with different backgrounds, particularly a set of strong female leads that our young audience can connect with,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment.

It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have greatly enjoyed the last few seasons of “AOS” and felt that the show was delivering the goods time and time again. Season four was a thrill ride and its great to find all the MCU inferences going on. The show became so much better than how it started and if you are not up to speed get on Netflix or bribe a friend with an account to let you come over and watch. One has to hope that with S5 that we will get some “Avengers: Infinity War” discourse or hints at “Black Panther”. Will you be watching my friends? Let me know down in the comments section below.

Tonight: “Agents Of Hydra” Returns (4/4/2017)

When I saw that there were a whole bunch of character posters for the return of Marvel’s “Agents Of SHIELD” oops, I mean “Agents Of Hydra” I just had to share them since I love bringing these to your attention. I have to say that this third season of the show has been exceptional and we’ve met folks like the Ghost Rider and read crib notes from The Darkhold and even had an identity crisis with the Life Model Decoys. Good stuff, and like watching a comic book take place in real life. Now the team faces a world run by Hydra and I cannot wait to see what’s next. Take a look at these posters.

Tonight: “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Begins “LMD” Storyline

It was only a few weeks ago that Marvel’s “Agents Of SHIELD” closed out a very exciting and edge of your seat first half based on the introduction of the Ghost Rider. I admit that I didn’t see how such a character could even work in the television show but I remained hopeful and ended up being glued to the television each and every week as the story played out. Now that the holidays are over, the second half storyline begins with “LMD” which means “Life Model Decoy”.

I have to say that the last couple of seasons of the show have been great and there are enough inferences to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe to keep you aware of the shows connection to it. A name drop of a hero every so often or a circumstance that happened in another film are always par for the course and very welcome IMHO. As a fan of the S.H.I.E.L.D. mythology its great to find the Life Model Decoy stuff finally being introduced as its gone hand in hand with numerous comic series featuring the characters. As before the cast remains Clark Gregg, who reprises his role as Coulson from the film series along with Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Henry Simmons. If you’ve been watching the series please let me know what you thought of the Ghost Rider inclusion and how you think this new LMD scenario will be.
