I figured since it was the weekend, I'd give you some homework...

Earlier in the month I did a post called "Channeling Success" that got a good deal of interest among the Marvel/Disney fans. There are a treasure trove of videos to watch on YouTube's Marvel Channel. I figured we could spotlight a few of them that were interesting and entertaining all at once.

If you were a fan of Joss Whedon's run on "Astonishing X-Men" then you should watch the first episode of the motion comic to his "Gifted" series run.

Bono and The Edge doing an interview about their involvement in "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark," parts One and Two.

A nice little clip of Stan Lee talking about "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2" with some nice scenes that he narrates with that famous voice of his.

Those of you that have seen "Iron Man 2" remember that wonderful Stark Expo 74 film that was a homage to Walt Disney and his dream of EPCOT? Well, here is the actual video of it to watch without having to pay an admission ticket.

Remember when we announced that Marvel was forming their own internal television division, titled appropriately, Marvel TV? Well, here's a short discussion with Mar TV's VP, Jeph Loeb about his initial plans.

And finally, a short teaser clip for the new "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" that premieres next year on Disney XD.

There are many more videos of interest and I suggest you go over and take a look at all the fun stuff. You guys should really be happy I'm such a caring guy. All this Marvel news is really starting to wear at my sensibilities. I'm taking one for the team for you people by reporting all this stuff.

After all, I'm a DC Guy...

I sure hope the Avengers animated series has good stories. The animation is so, so.

I agree with Hunter that the Fantastic Four series from 2006-07 was very well animated with a great deal of detail, particularly for a tv show. And the stories were great, if only the network had given it a stable time and a second season.

Oh well, even good stuff like Veronica Mars gets canceled. Not everything good wins, sadly.

I want to hear that they were smart enough to greenlight that S.H.I.E.L.D. animated series.

I'd be happy for all Marvel Animation (films, TV, shorts??) to pretty much start over now.

For television, develop more in the style of the 90's animation series. Obviously more modern - and try to retain some of the history of those franchises like X-Men and Avengers which have evolved more so over the years.

Don't understand why Marvel haven't persuded a shared universe for their Direct to Videos, as they are doing with the feature films. Lord knows it would be a much easier task to attempt.

Especially when they haven't really been that different stylisticly.
