Reboots have been all the rage in Hollywood for years, but until this morning I don’t think I had ever seen or heard of a reboot of a Comic-Con panel.  Last time on Marvel Animation Panel, Jeph Loeb took to the stage and made hammy joke after hammy joke as he showed off previews of a slew of upcoming Marvel-branded animated programming for Disney’s popular XD lineup.  This year he returned to the Con and brought pretty much the exact same shows, in almost the exact same order.  Only now, there’s footage.  And as with the new The Amazing Spider-Man film, even without the novelty of a first time experience, this reboot panel was better than the first take.

Loeb showed off footage from Marvel Mashups, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Avenger’s Assemble, various Marvel Knights projects and even a full episode of Ultimate Spider-Man.  Hit the jump for details on the footage, a recap of the panel and Spider-Ham!

Still in need of the discipline to best utilize his gifts, S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (voiced by Chi McBride) offers Spidey the chance to train with the best and plants Agent Coulson (voiced by Clark Gregg) as the school principal to keep a watchful eye and him and four other teenage superheroes – Nova, White Tiger, Power Man and Iron Fist.

During this recent interview to promote the new Marvel Universe series, actor Clark Gregg talked about how his relationship with Marvel started, getting to explore this side of the Agent Coulson character, the transition in going from playing this character in live-action films to only having his voice to bring the character to life, how Agent Coulson is a man who takes his work very seriously, and how he sees the tone of this show. He also talked about having recently seen a cut of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, and how he thinks audiences will be as impressed with the film as he was. Check out what he had to say after the jump:

When the Walt Disney Company and Marvel announced their joint partnership a few years ago, both sides knew that there were some incredible creative opportunities and a whole lot of coin to be made in the years ahead. That more or less sums up what the Disney Channels’ President and Chief Creative Officer Gary Marsh said during a presentation at TCA. While I’m paraphrasing, of course, Marsh did go on to announce the next step in their partnership: a block of Marvel-themed series on Disney XD which will be called Marvel Universe, featuring a new collaboration, Ultimate Spider-Man. The new iteration will be the first time that Spidey, voiced by Drake Bell (Superhero Movie), won’t be going it along, as he’ll be joined by White Tiger, Iron Fist, Power Man and Nova, all of Nick Fury’s S.H.I.E.L.D. While that’s good news for fans of the web-head, Marsh also talked about the premiere of their anticipated animated series, TRON: Uprising. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
