Attendees of a press conference held earlier this month for Disney XD’s new animated series, ‘Avengers Assemble,’ were able to catch a glimpse of Marvel’s Iron Man and Captain America in the flesh/suit. This would have provided a rare opportunity for a meet and greet with the popular Marvel superheroes in an environment provided by Disney proper as the only current appearances in domestic theme parks are regulated to those at Universal Studios Orlando and sanctioned meet and greets at Toys ‘R’ Us locations.
Although only Iron Man and Spider-man have been named to make appearances at the Disney D23 Expo on Friday, August 9, 2013 at the Disney Channel booth, this photo may give a good idea of how the Marvel characters will appear in the Disney experience. Interestingly enough, according to Iron Man film canon, Iron Man is seen here in the Mark VI suit which is unique in that chest features a triangular emblem whereas all of the other suits are circular. In all of the released promotional material for ‘Avengers Assemble’ released thus far, Stark is not shown wearing this particular suit.
‘Avengers Assemble’ premieres on Disney XD on July 7, 2013.
