Marvel is going to make an Ant-Man and Rocket and Groot animated TV show.
Marvel is looking to expand their franchises with a TV show. According to a Variety report, Marvel is going to start creating animated TV shows based on two of their most popular characters, Ant-Man and Rocket and Groot. The production for the new project will take place in France – thanks to the country’s generous tax rebates on animation work.
Both series are being made by French filmmakers. In fact, the team behind Ant-Man, Ugo Bienvenu and Kevin Manach, have a long history of making retro style superhero shows. For example, check out the video below.
Rocket and Groot is being directed by Arnaud Delord. He has a long resume of creating music-video style videos, but it still seems interesting enough to feature raccoons and giant trees for a Marvel project.
But, there are several additional animated projects headed to France in order to take advantage of the country’s film tax credits including DreamWork Animation’s Captain Underpants, and Paramount and MGM’s new Johnny Depp movie, Gnomeo & Juliet, which is currently titled Sherlock Gnomes.
