‘Hulk: Gamma Corps’ Animated Series Canceled
Tooznone reports that Marvel Animation has confirmed the cancelation of the Hulk: Gamma Corps animated series.
Instead, much of the story development will find its way into the recently announced The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes series.
Hulk: Gamma Corps was originally announced last year as a tie-in with the Incredible Hulk film. The series was in active pre-production when the Avengers concept got approved and it was felt the two should be combined according to Joshua Fine, Director of Animation Development for Marvel Animation.
"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," Fine told Toonzone.
The Avengers animated series will arrive on television in fall 2011, after the live-action Avengers film debuts in July. The feature film is currently thought to feature the heroes gathering together to bring stop the Hulk’s threat once and for all. That theme will be played out in the animated series.
