In October of 2008, Marvel Animation announced they would be personally producing a new cartoon titled Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. The show was created by contract with the animation studio Film Roman.
Marvel Entertainment emphasized that the series would be developed and produced "in house", meaning that the types of financial disputes that had prematurely ended other animated series based on Marvel's properties would not be an issue for Avengers:EMH. The series was mentioned as part of what Marvel Animation President Eric S. Rollman referred to as the "Road to the Avengers" initiative, launching alongside Marvel's Avengers film projects by at least 2011.
Show runners were later named as Joshua Fine (supervising producer), Christopher Yost (story editor), Ciro Nieli and Frank Paur (supervising directors). 52 episodes were ordered for production, broken into two seasons of 26 episodes each. Nieli hired Vinton Heuck and Sebastian Montes as directors for individual episodes. Nieli would later leave the show to serve as Executive Producer for a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, making Paur the only Supervising Director.
Fine and Yost had worked with each other before multiple times, most recently on the lauded Wolverine and the X-Men television series that was one of those victims of financial differences. This is the first series that Yost has worked on without long-time collaborator Craig Kyle, an experience he described as working without a safety net.
Fine and Yost both described their influences for the series ranging "from Lee to Bendis, and everything in between." Yost in particular expressed excitement about getting to use the entire history of Avengers stories, mixing the best elements from his favorite stories. Both also emphasize an importance of fun; Yost mentioned that while he might be known for his work on X-Men properties, he was enjoying escaping the angst of that property for something more light.
Before the series premiered on television, the first five episodes created were split into four "mini" episodes each and posted as online shorts in what the producers referred to as a "micro-series." The idea came from Joshua Fine, who felt one of the great qualities of the original Avengers comics was how it felt like each of the characters had their own life before the comic book series began. Wanting an opportunity to flesh out each individual member of the team but also wanting to get the Avengers as a team as soon as possible, it was decided that creating the micro-series was a good way to both build buzz for the new series as well as hit the ground running with the hour-long premiere, Breakout.
Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes premiered on the Disney XD channel on October 20, 2010 with a two part storyline. The following Sunday, the five episodes that were used to create the micro-series were aired as a five episode marathon. New episodes aired on Wednesday nights until December of 2010, at which point new episodes premiered on Sunday morning. The show took a hiatus from airing on US television after January 23, 2011. It returned May 15 of the same year, to coincide with the premiere of the Thor movie.
The Second Season of Earth's Mightiest Heroes has been referred to by both Fine and Yost as the "Cosmic" season, with more of a focus on interstellar threats. Marvel's Executive Vice President and Head of Television, Jeph Loeb, hinted that Avengers:EMH second season originally was planned to premiere in October of 2011. However, Yost later confirmed that the Cosmic season was delayed until sometime in 2012.
In April of 2011, Fine resigned from his position as Supervising Producer at Marvel Studios to seek a professional break and Christopher Yost, after supervising the final scripts for the Cosmic Season, was promoted to the Marvel Writer's Program to oversee the scripting of Marvel Studio's future feature film outputs. Most of the writing staff associated with the show left with Yost. The production duties that Fine left behind for the rest of Season 2 were picked up by Kalia Cheng, who Fine described as the "Maria Hill to my Nick Fury." Frank Paur stayed attached as Supervising Director.
It was later announced that the second season of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes would premiere on April 1, 2012. It will air alongside the new cartoon, Ultimate Spider-Man, as an hour-long block on Disney XD known as Marvel Universe.
