There were some more snippets from the Spidey episode today in one of the Marvel Universe interstitial's. There was Spidey holding a ceiling from caving in because of some civilians while Cap was pummeling some member of (I think) the Serpent Society. Another shot of Cap telling Spidey something. Seems like it may be mostly a Spidey/Cap team up.
"So you don't like names, huh? Well, that's too bad, Frog-Face. 'Cause to me, you're nothing but a two-bit, no-account, second-rate, sewer-breath-baboon, with a brain of a pigeon and the face of an eel!"
Well, the Serpent Society was one of the few villains that the Avengers weren't able to capture in Season 1, so it'd be a nice way to clean up loose ends.
I am assuming that the unnamed female guards that flanked M'Baku and who gave Captain America a tussle were Dora Milaje, the order of highly-trained personal bodyguards/attendants to the Wakandan throne.
The Rattler was similar to the Lizard- a guy (his real name was Henry Bingham) who took venom from snakes to sell was bitten. He went to a shady research company who gave him an untested serum to try out and... well, you can probably guess the rest.
That Rattler is totally unrelated to the Rattler of the Serpent Society (Gustav Krueger) who first appeared in Captain America #310.
As for Spidey-themed snake villains in regular Marvel universe continuity... well, I believe Princess Python of the Circus of Crime first debuted in Amazing #22. Also, I believe Klaus Voorhees, the Cobra has fought Spidey on a few occasions.
I'm too lazy to do any additional research at this point.
I've got a question regarding the official trailer for season 2... I'm assuming I can post a link to it here, since it was uploaded by Marvel.
About 8 seconds in (see the link below), there's a guy wearing only trousers hovering in what appears to be Central Park who's firing energy blasts from his hands. Any idea who he is?
"Are you the dreamer or merely part of someone's dream?" - The Mad Hatter.
B:TAS - Perchance to Dream.
Edit - Unfortunately, what was once rumor seems to be confirmed, although not directly:
"Fans of the successful ongoing Avengers: Earth Mightiest Heroes TV Series are about to be disappointed. As my sources have confirmed to me, Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel Animation studios, has cancelled the currently successful series in favor of a new Avengers Cartoon that will be produced by Marvel's newly acquired studio (MAS) and will be inline with and in the same universe as the currently airing Ultimate Spider-man cartoon. "
Apparently, they won't announce it until later so as to not materially affect the ratings.
Clarification - Of course, if his source is the same as our original source, then its accuracy is still perhaps problematic.

I just had a thought - wouldn't it be interesting if Bucky was found by the Avengers, and he would be the only one able to tell that Cap is a Skrull in disguise?
Let me get this straight...???
They're going to cancel the current Avengers show... to make a new one?
Any estimates on WHEN?
I would think that they would at least finish out this season first.
I'd be okay with a 52 episode show. It's better than nothing.
I still hope that it doesn't get cancelled at all.
But there's nothing I can do to fight it.
I wish there WAS something fans could do.
...I try and be calm and collected in situations like these (the success rate is another issue) but this is hands down a STUPID idea, I'm sorry. You've got a show that is incredibly successful and doing great with its target audience and others and you want to cancel it to make an inferior show? Did they see the anticipation across the media for season 2 to start? Did they miss out on how excited everyone got when they showed the massive cast photo of the FF, Spidey, Bishop, Logan, Wasp and more?! I mean come one, what is the point of this foolishness? It's just terrible.

Marvel Studios has yet to offically announce this is what they are doing, but to make it in-continuity with USM they'd pretty much have to reboot it; too many contradictions, with more probably on the way.
Only things fans can do is support AEMH while its there, and hope that USM is shown to not be viable such that they adjust the decision about Season Three; but it does go against the grain to wish ill on another show, really.
Edit - Although, come to think of it, as an exercise I put together a Season One outline that is both in-continuity with USM and doesn't re-use or significantly contradict what we know of Season One-Two of AEMH; my problem is that I have no faith in Loeb's ability to hire quality writers, from what I've seen so far (which may or may not actually be fair comment).
Certainly explains why they are rushing the huge marvel hero team up and all these other plots that could easily make up on ongoing full season story. I am surprisingly not angry, 52 episodes is a nice run time and the show clearly did not take to long to establish its quality so there are a lot of great episodes and stories. What DOES annoy me greatly is that this loeb character, knowing he was canceling a beloved show in capable hands, took it upon himself to excuse the writers and write his own ending, that is simply a spit in the face to all who worked so hard on the show and regardless of if he does it well that was a truly unprofessional move. Also I pray we get a very nice ending episode and I pray it is not just a thirty minute episode.
Really is a shame we couldn't get a mystical season though.
Well then if this cancellation of A:EMH is true, I suppose this is needed.
It's been used for a few Marvel shows lately, Spectacular Spider-Man, Wolverine and the X-Men, and now this show. At least this show lasted more than 26 episodes.
