Shout! Factory has signed a multi-year deal with Marvel Animation, Inc. to become the U.S. home entertainment distributor with licensing rights for The Super Hero Squad Show. The series debuted on Cartoon Network US last October.
Shout! Factory is planning to roll out a home entertainment product line, including DVDs, based on the series later this year.
The Super Hero Squad Show is an animated series featuring Marvel’s most popular characters such as Captain America, Silver Surfer, Thor, Hulk, Wolverine and Iron Man, with a comedic twist. The heroes team up to face the world’s greatest villains, aiming to protect Super Hero City from Dr. Doom’s wild and weird minions.
