A Special One-Hour Preview of "Marvel's Avengers Assemble" To Debut Sunday, May 26 on Marvel Universe on Disney XD

The popular Marvel Universe programming block on Disney XD will expand with more action, adventure and humor with the debut of two new animated series "Marvel's Avengers Assemble," which continues the exciting adventures of Marvel's most popular super heroes - Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow and newcomer Falcon, and "Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.," which features the incredible Hulk, She-Hulk, Red Hulk, A-Bomb and Skaar; it was announced today by David Levine, Vice President and General Manager, Disney XD Worldwide and Jeph Loeb, Executive Vice President & Head of Television, Marvel Entertainment. Kicking off the marvelous summer programming is a special one-hour preview of "Marvel's Avengers Assemble" on SUNDAY, MAY 26, followed by the series premiere on SUNDAY, JULY 7. "Marvel's Hulk and the Agents S.M.A.S.H." premieres SUNDAY, AUGUST 11 (all at 11:00 a.m., ET/PT) on Marvel Universe on Disney XD.

With the hit series "Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man" as its centerpiece, Marvel Universe is the destination for kids and families to enjoy original animated Marvel TV content, including series and interstitials that uniquely spotlight the legendary Marvel characters while bringing their mighty powers to life. "Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man" season two debuted in January 2013, and to date, is Disney XD's #1 animated series in target demos Kids 2-11 (265,000/0.7 rating), Boys 2-11 (197,000/1.0 rating) and Boys 6-11 (138,000/1.1 rating).

The record-breaking blockbuster film "Marvel's The Avengers" gave worldwide prominence to the most popular super hero team -- Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow. "Marvel's Avengers Assemble" reunites the team, along with newcomer Falcon, marking the first time in animation history this distinct team of heroes will join forces. Led by Iron Man, the heroes train and live together in their new headquarters in Avengers Tower. The planet's most dangerous villains don't stand a chance when the Avengers assemble - whether they are stopping Dr. Doom from conquering Asgard, Attuma driving the Atlantean Army into New York City or Dracula unleashing vampire hordes, the Avengers must work together to succeed.

Joining the Marvel Universe block on Sunday, August 11 is "Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H." Hulk has long fought alone to protect a world that sees him as a monster, but his friend Rick Jones has taken it upon himself to film the world-saving exploits of Big Green and his team to change that image. In this never before seen team up of Hulk, his cousin She-Hulk, A-Bomb, Red Hulk and Skaar, Marvel's mightiest super heroes form an eccentric family living under one roof, working together to tackle threats that are too enormous for other heroes to handle. From trying to house break their giant red pet T-Rex to stopping Ego the Living Planet from crashing into the Earth, the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. must learn to balance Hulk-sized action with everyday family-sized problems.

"Marvel's Avengers Assemble" stars Adrian Pasdar ("Heroes") as Iron Man, Fred Tatasciore ("Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness") reprising his role as Hulk, Roger Craig Smith ("Wreck-It Ralph") as Captain America, Travis Willingham ("Shelf Life") as Thor, Troy Baker ("Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man") as Hawkeye, Laura Bailey ("The Super Hero Squad Show") as Black Widow and Bumper Robinson ("The Game") as Falcon. Man of Action Studios ("Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man," "Ben 10") -- comprised of Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle -- will serve as executive producer.

"Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H." stars Fred Tatasciore ("Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness") as Hulk, Clancy Brown ("The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes") as Red Hulk, Eliza Dushku ("Dollhouse") as She-Hulk, Ben Diskin ("Codename: Kids Next Door") as Skaar and Emmy Award-winning Seth Green ("Robot Chicken") as A-Bomb.
