Well before Marvel’s Avengers reunite in live-action form for Avengers: Infinity War next May, their cartoon counterparts will be teaming up for Season 4 of Marvel’s Avengers on Disney XD. Previously subtitled with “Ultron Revolution”, it’s been revealed that the new arc for the upcoming season will in fact be “Secret Wars”, based on the limited series comic book crossover event from the mid-80s. But it’s not just the one-hour premiere this June that should have fans excited; Disney XD will also be airing a number of shorts to introduce the newest members of the Avengers team in order to bring everyone up to speed.
Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will unite for the one-hour premiere on Saturday, June 17th at 11:30 a.m. EDT on Disney XD. The shorts will feature Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Ms. Marvel, Ant-Man, Wasp, and Vision in flashback sequences that introduce their powers; that’ll start on Friday, June 2nd. Read on for more on the upcoming season, its schedule, and the first images from Marvel’s Avengers: Secret Wars.
Picking up right after the events of season three “Ultron Revolution,” the fourth season finds Tony Stark trapped in another dimension. While the Avengers muster all of their knowledge and strength to try and find a way to bring him back, they are attacked by a new Cabal of villains who scatter the mighty heroes across space and time. With the help of the Black Panther’s new team, including Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Ant-Man, Wasp and Vision, the Avengers must reunite in time to save the universe.
