San Diego Comic-Con Day 3: More Disney and Marvel TV News


As exciting as the Marvel Studios panel was, that wasn’t all from Comic-Con yesterday. Once Upon A Time had a panel as well as Marvel Animation and Peanut and Pickle.

Like the other Disney XD shows, the Peanut and Pickle panel got fans excited for the upcoming season.

Marvel Animation announced new seasons for Ultimate Spider-Man and Avengers, this time called Avenger: Secret Wars! Also announced are a series of 12 shorts staring Rocket Racoon and Groot and an animated film called
Marvel’s Hulk: Where Monsters Swell. The movie comes out this Fall and sees the Hulk partnering up with Doctor Strange and the Howling Commandos to explore mystical realms.

The biggest news from the Once Upon A Time panel is that season six will feature an Aladdin storyline. They also announced that Deniz Akdeniz will be playing Aladdin and Oded Fehr will play Jafar. Hardcore Oncers will notice that Jafar has been recast from his Once Upon A Time In Wonderland days. Naveen Andrews was unavailable due to his current role on Sense8 which is disappointing because I did enjoy him as Jafar.

Here are the first three minutes of the season premiere:

Three days down, only one more to go
