Disney XD Reveals More Details For Marvel Universe Block

Disney XD has unveiled more details of Marvel Universe, its upcoming programming block reminiscent of Cartoon Network’s newly launched DC Nation.

Debuting Sunday, April 1, the block is anchored by the new Ultimate Spider-Man and the second season of The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (that first week will feature a bonus episode of Spider-Man), with short-form animated series and live-action interstitials scattered throughout. Hosted by Radio Disney’s Morgan Tompkins, the shorts include:

“Fury Files”: Top-secret access to S.H.I.E.L.D. video dossiers on key Marvel heroes, including Iron Fist, Power Man, Nova and White Tiger and the villains they face, are animated with mix of traditional animation and motion comic art.

“Marvel Mash-Up”: The Marvel Universe is turned upside down with unexpected takes on iconic Marvel heroes and villains, featuring classic animation edited with a comedic twist.

“Animated Reality”: Stunt and special effects experts showcase the epic moves of favorite Marvel superheroes, including Captain America and Spider-Man.

“What Would It Take?”: Get a glimpse into the science and modern technology required to create the heroes’ gadgets, abilities and tech in real life, ranging from Iron Man’s jet propulsion boots to Iron Fist’s power-packed punch.

“Master Class”: Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada explains the artistic vision behind Marvel’s greatest superheroes and shows how artists bring them to life.

Disney XD’s Marvel Universe block kicks off Sunday, April 1 at 11 a.m. ET/PT.

    Considering “Earths Mightiest Heroes” is surprisingly solid, I’ll give this a chance.

    This is kind of cool, but I wish they would make them as their own shows so that DVR guides would recognize them and record them. When they’re just put on at random times, you miss them or like you’ll get part of it but part of it will be cut off. The other thing they could do is put them on during the commercials when a show is on, not after a show before the next one starts.
