Rumor: Marvel Studios insider spills the bean regarding Ultimate Spider-man and Agents of S.M.A.S.H
>According to AgentX (my insider’s fictional alias) Marvel does know that fans are hating Ultimate Spider-man. In fact many Marvel Studios employees who are working on the show hate it. However, Marvel and Disney invensted a lot of money in it and will not be cancelling it anytime soon. Especially since many Marvel big guys believe the show is doing great (although the ratings have started dropping after episode 3 “Doomed”).
>Many discussions have been taking place regarding Avengers EMH (which is ending after this season) and how it could be the reason people are watching Ultimate Spider-man, since it broadcasts prior to the hit show Avengers. To make sure this isn’t the case, there will be many instances where Disney XD will air a new episode of Ultimate Spider-man while putting Avengers: EMH on a short hiatus. (AgentX and many Marvel guys believe that Avengers EMH brings the biggest number of viewers to watch Ultimate Spider-man)
>Season 2 of Ultimate Spider-man is in full production right now, as it was green lit before the show even premiered, and Marvel is not planning any change to the show tone, its humor, execution or even character development.
>The Statement Paul Dini, one of the producers and writers of the show, about the show getting mature with more seasons is false and wishful thinking, as Marvel had made it clear that the tone will not change. In fact according to AgentX, even Dini himself is not very happy with how the show turns out and wanted to have some maturity in it, which Marvel rejected.
>Jeph Loeb is definitely one of the main guys who is pushing for the tone of the show. According to Agent X, Jeph wants Marvel Cartoons to prepare the youglings to be future Marvel comics fans, and he insisted on having all the Marvel cartons (Ultimate Spider-man, Hulk agents of SMASH, and the second half season of Avengers EMH) with no over reaching story, no 2 or 3 episodes parters, and no continuity.
>As Much as people are complaining about the show, they do not address their complaints to anyone. AgentX believes that if enough people wrote to Marvel and the show producers about how much they hate the show, then chances are higher for the show to be fixed or cancelled and replaced by a better Spider-man show.
>Hulk Agents of SMASH, is a bit diffirent than Ultimate Spider-man, but still geared towards children. According to AgentX, the episode stories of the show are very simple, under-explained and many times don’t make sense at all.
>Much like Ultimate Spider-man, HULK Agents of SMASH’s characters backgrounds is never explored, but only touched upon (just like Ultimate spider-man’s teammates)
>While there are no Cut away gags, and breaking the 4th wall jokes in Agents of SMASH, there are some episodes where the characters are talking to the viewer, as in a reality show, where each member of the hulk team will explain things and tell his view on the episode’s situation. (AgentX is not sure how many episodes will be in this format)
>According to AgentX, if you hate Ultimate Spider-man, chances are you will not like Hulk and the Agents of SMASH.
>Hulk Agents of SMASH can be described as a mindless action show, with no character development and no intelligent stories.
