SDCC 2015: Marvel Animation Presents Panel!

The Marvel Animation Panel began with Wacker thanking the audience for waking up to watch cartoons on a Saturday morning. He then tells the crowd that Jeph Loeb texted him last night saying live action audience would be louder than the animation audience. Wacker proved him wrong!

Cort talked about all the things that have happened in Marvel's Avengers Assemble. Wacker mentioned we'll be seeing the return of the Squadron Supreme. Huge five part epic will lead into the season finale. They shared some footage with the audience while the creators talked about next season, titled Marvel's Avengers: Ultron Revolution.

Baron Zemo, Kang, Vision, Thanos, and more will appear! New story editors are coming in to bring the show to be even bigger. Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Ms. Marvel will be coming in Season 3.

The Inhumans will also be coming back for Season 3 with slightly new character designs. The Inhumans will become an important part of all the Marvel animated series.

Contest of Champions is an upcoming 4-part arc. The audience got to check out a clip!

Next up Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors.

Spidey, Hulk, and Iron Man are battled Molten Man, Wendigo, and Kraven the HunterLots of guest stars and epic action. Peter Parker will learn to become the best hero he can be. He proves it on Contest of ChampionsWacker looked at the event as if it could be a series finale, as a giant climax. Disney XD wanted more of the show so it will return for a fourth season, making it the longest running Marvel animated series ever!

Next season will be Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man vs. The Sinister 6.

Season 3 ended with Spider-Man having a lot of friends. Miles Morales, Agent Venom, and Iron Spider will all battle the Sinisters 6The next season will raise the stakes and be a great pay off to the first three seasons. By the end of Season 4, they will be at 104 episodes.

The last part was on the newest animated show, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy! Premieres in a two part event on Saturday, Septmeber 26. Sneak preview on Saturday, September 5. There will also be shorts to introduce all of the Guardians to audiences. Agents Fitz and Simmons will both be there! Unfortunately, they did't have a clip from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Instead, they showed the pilot episode!

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has all the action and adventure you'd expect! The creators wanted to try to capture the look and feel of the movie. The artists are focusing on bringing the cast's performances into the animation. The show is another plateau, according to RadomskiThe creators wanted to dig deep into the cosmic Marvel universe to bring into the show. Radomski mentioned that he was impressed by how Kevin Michael Richardson can capture so many different emotions and personality with just the three words, "I am Groot."

The floor then opened up to questions from the audience.

A young Ms. Marvel had the first question. She wondered how Ultron will return for season 3. Wacker asked if she was scared of Ultron in the movie, and she said, "Nope."

Wacker said it's okay if she asks a hundred questions because there are a bunch of 40-year-olds behind her.

Next question is if Ms. Marvel will join the Avengers. Wacker said the show will focus on her as much as possible and something he's excited about. The young Ms. Marvel joined the panel on stage!

The next question came from a 27-year-old. He wanted to know about Hulk And The Agents Of S.N.A.S.H. series. Wacker said Guardians of The Galaxy will take the place of that show on the animation schedule. Radomski then pointed out that the Hulk is in Marvel's Avengers Assemble so he has plenty of screen time.

Cort said there will be other opportunities to see Hulk outside of Marvel's Avengers Assemble.

Question about how an upcoming Civil War arc and that we've seen the Avengers separate in Season 2. Wacker points out the difference between Avengers Disassemble vs. Civil War. In Civil War, the whole world will be divided, not just the Avengers splitting ways.

Next question was about whether or not the animated Guardians show can highlight characters like Adam Warlock. Wacker differed to Ms. Marvel, who says, "They should."

Cort and Wacker mentioned we will meet a lot of characters along the way.

Question about more Deadpool appearances. Cort said not at the moment.

Question about the time stone being in the Guardians series. Wacker said we will see a lot more stones.

Question about if we'll ever see an animated Carnage. Wacker says we will see Carnage in Ultimate Spider-Man.

Question about more girl super heroes in animated series. Wacker asked if the audience wanted to see more, and they go nuts, and it all starts with Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel.
