Marvel Announces Thor Animated Series

Holding the Hammer: JMS Talks Thor

While Marvel has recently shelved the idea of Hulk: Gamma Corps animated series, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that a Thor animated series is coming in 2010. The new series will debut after the live action film starring the character.

According to the trade, Marvel Animation is developing and self-producing 26 half hour episodes which will follow Thor’s adventures on Asgard and beyond. Supporting cast will include Balder the Brave, the Warriors Three and Loki.

From Hollywood Reporter: Marvel president of animation Eric Rollman said the series is part of the company's plan to follow each live-action movie with an animated series and "offer a continued awareness in the marketplace." It already is in production on cartoon series "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes," which will be available for broadcast in 2011, in time for Marvel Studios' releases of the live-action "The First Avenger: Captain America" and "The Avengers."

Marvel’s Wolverine and the X-Men is slated to debut on Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons network in January. Iron Man: Armored Avengers is slated to debut in 2009 as well.
