    Saw this on CNN:

    Looks like the Marvel multimedia universe just keeps expanding.

    Interesting. I assume it will be on in prime time- the story doesn't say.

    With the new movie coming out next year, and if it does well sequels...won't the TV show impede and on the movie and vice versa? Plus, I'm not sure a TV show can generate the action, effects and stunts that will be required to bring in the movie audience. The show might be good, but it can only have a max of $2 million budget per show, as opposed to the movie having several, several times that.

    Problem #2 is the fact that the show is only supposed to be 30 min. instead of an hour. That's not nearly enough time to tell a good story in.

    It's animated. I understand the Cartoon Stunt Performers Guild works cheap.

    I missed the line about it being animated. Must have been hiding from me since it was in bold print at the top of the article.

    Well, MTV did an animated Spider-Man that served as a stop-gap between the movies, this might be the same concept. I never got around to watching that show, though.

    According to one of the Family Guy commentary tracks, each episode of FG cost about $1 million.
