    As AA comes to a close, what are some of your favorite moments from the show?

    I loved the opening to season 2's "Dark Avengers". Seeing Tony play a Lex Luthor like role to Squadron Supreme in that alternate reality was super fun. I still smile at the team saying "Iron-Man" like he's their arch-nemisis.

    Here are the first news to come out of the Marvel Animation panel at WonderCon, via The Marvel Report Twitter account. It's not much, and mostly stuff that was previously announced, but it will have to do for now.
    The only real news is Shuri's voice actress. They also showed a clip, though there's no description of it yet.

    Okoye being in the Lego special makes me think she'll probably appear, but I doubt Nakia will given she was also T'Challa's love interest in the movie and Shuri seems to be the female lead of Black Panther's Quest.

    Nakia won't appear because she's T'Challa's love interest?! Does Marvel Animation got a no-romance policy?

    I mean, it's been brought up before, but the Marvel cartoons generally forego romance quite a bit as of late.

    Just look at Ant-Man and Wasp on this show. They barely interacted or had a single significant moment with each other across the entire season.

    Yet they're still together no less, so why not include Nakia?

    The video confirms Season 5 will air in the fall.

    Wow, everyone looks so...lean and skinny :sweat:.

    Cool to know that Layron is the character designer though :).

    The movies barely have any romance as it is.

    I'm a little surprised they're not planning on bringing the show back for the summer season.

    As far as the MCU? Pretty much every major Marvel movie has had a romantic interest, element, or arc for the hero.
    I'm especially surprised they're not trying to get the show out quicker to tie-in with the movie's success :sweat:.

    I figured we might get the Lego Black Panther special as a tie-in to his movie earlier this year, and then Season 5 in summer as a tie-in to Infinity War. Neither of those predictions worked out. :p

    If they do this to try to pander to young boy audiences why even bother to include female characters?

    Yeah but they aren't that big of romance stories. They are always secondary. Plus, Cap still hasn't had a girlfriend in the present. And I'm not counting Sharon.

    Even then, they could still include Nakia without romance; if they can do that with Jane Foster than they could certainly do so with Nakia.

    I mean, they're not romance movies but they're films that generally have romance as an element more often then not.

    I wouldn't call Sharon Cap's girlfriend but she's the closest thing he had to a love interest in the Russo films.
    Well, Jane and Thor had some longing looks, but I would hope Nakia would be better implemented then Jane Foster was :sweat:.

    In season 4 titled Secret Wars there is an episode titled Dimension Z when Ant Man goes to save Hawkeye, Cap and Widow from a dimension controlled by Arnim Zola and in that episode it sounded like it was there first time in Dimension Z yet in the Season 2 episode titled Widow's Run Hawkeye mentions Dimension Z as if they have already been there before and the Guardians of the Galaxy even appear in this season 2 episode.

    I'm really confused on the whole continuity thing.
