I don't know why this isn't bigger news. I guess because the rumor has been around for a while now. Anyway, it would seem it's confirmed...

I like EMH so I can't claim to be excited about this. It seems like a pretty blatant attempt to cash in on the movie (same Avengers + Falcon for some ethnic diversity). I also don't see how this makes logical sense. If kids who saw the Avengers movie and got excited are tuning in to EMH now does it really make sense to pull the rug out from under them with a whole new continuity?

But I guess that's the price Marvel pays so Loeb can consolidate his power.

Its a damn shame. It was a great show. Exactly what I would want from a classic Avengers line up.

sorry but what's the point of starting a new series with pretty much the same characters. They will have put 52 episodes into developing these characters and introducing reuseable villains just to start over again, introduce the same characters, probably some of the same villains, find a new reason to put the team together, ridiculous. It'll probably be the exact same audience too.

EMH has been the first Marvel Heroes team series that's managed to handle an every-changing roster (even if only 9 members total) and could have continued for years. If Marvel wanted a certain lineup, wouldn't be hard to change things up.

It's bad news that it's in the same continuity as the silly Ultimate Spiderman cartoon.

This really ticks me off.

I loved EMH! It was perfectly done. You just couldn't possibly make a better, more faithful Avengers cartoon.

I'd say it's more than likely. If you look at these screen grabs you see Cap's costume matches. But more importantly Iron Man is wearing the same armor in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon and the Avengers Assemble Promo Art.

While that armor is basically just a take off the movie armor the cylindrical pieces on each hip is much more pronounced (more like the old battery backs on the classic armor and less like the joint in the movie armor). Add that to the identical chest plate (which is closer to the Extremis armor than it is to the movie armor) and it seems pretty likely the new cartoon takes place in the Ultimate Universe.
