    Y'know, I wonder how much Baby Groot we're going to see in Marvel Animation going forward after that trailer for Vol. 2? Can they resist not including something so adorable :anime:?

    Run Rocket, don't let Benicio Del Toro catch you :p.

    I thought this short was a lot of fun and way more interesting than the previous one. I thought the Spider-Man/Iron Man short was fine, but I didn't understand why so many people seemed to love it. The Rocket/Groot short was really fun and cute. Rocket running from the Collector to save Baby Groot was fun and humorous. I guess less superhero action and more comedic hijinks was amusing to see. Ironically, people seems to just like this one a bit. I guess I just have different tastes.

    Could see Marvel/Funko doing more with this, like Lego stuff you could make this into a video game, a tv series etc.

    Kidscreen has an interesting interview about the creation of these Marvel Funko shorts. The most interesting part of this article in my opinion is Marvel's increased interest in short-length content.

    I hope that doesn't mean 22-minute shows are being replaced with 11-minute ones even though both can produce great results. More shorts on TV or online (depending on the length) definitely makes sense considering the changing landscape of media consumption however.

    I can't say I had that much desire to see more Funk shorts, but I'm sure these should be as fun as the first seasons were :).

    It's kind of surreal seeing 4 and a half minutes described vas a season.

    This short seems conveniently timed with the release of a new Thor movie in theaters ;).

    Did Loki really think trying to grab the hammer would go well :p?

    Black Widow and Hulk. Still an odd, if sometimes fun, pairing ;).

    Hulk almost sounds like they reused voice clips from the movies...

    You shouldn't have laughed at Hulk Widow :rolleyes2:.

    I guess it takes a bomb to do any major damage to Hulk's purple pants :p.

    Heh, Dr. Strange still punking Loki :p.

    The obvious MCU Strange in this makes me wonder if we're going to see the cartoons reboot him again to make him more in-line with the movies...

    A new short will be released soon:


    The title makes me think of Namor, but I kind of doubt he'll appear.

    It would be a nice surprise if he did. I'm not sure who would be involved with a sub besides Namor, Attuma, or even Magneto though I doubt It's any of them.

    The sub seems to have a Hydra logo on it, so it might be a Captain America short.
