Even with the recent casting calls and a 2015 release date, 'Star Wars' fans have almost no idea what direction the franchise will take when J.J. Abrams assumes control to deliver 'Episodes 7.' Vaguer still, we've only precious few ideas where the animated arm of the franchise will go with the 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' replacement, 'Star Wars Rebels,' but what does the latest information about the cast say?
No, it isn't Guillermo del Toro's long-dormant 'Hulk' TV series, and certainly not the 'Smash' and 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' crossover we've been pondering for the last five minutes, but Marvel's newest upcoming animated series 'Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.' finally has a first trailer to debut its star-studded cast.

Understandably, the buzz behind 'Star Wars' exploded through culture this week with news of Disney's mammoth purchase of the franchise, and eventual continuation of the movie saga that began the legendary series. Yet, through all that movie news and speculation, relatively little attention has fallen to TV, wherein 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' has been making waves for the last four years.

Marvel animation has undergone something of a renaissance in the last few years. Though never having quite reached the popularity or proficiency of DC's animated universe, the pre- and post-arrival of 'The Avengers' signaled a dramatic shift in the way Marvel tied in with its animation.
