NYCC: Ant-Man and The Wasp Animated Shorts Coming to Disney XD Next Year

On Saturday, during the Marvel Television Animation Panel at New York Comic-Con, it was announced that an all-new animated series called Marvel's Spider-Man and Hayley Atwell is coming back to voice Agent Carter on Marvel's Avengers: Secret Wars.

Cort Lane, SVP Marvel Animation and Family Entertainment, also shared the exciting news that fans will soon get to enjoy Ant-Man and the Wasp together in the Ant-Man animated shorts coming next year to Disney XD! Created by Passion Pictures and directed by French duo Ugo Bienvenu and Kevin Manach, fans will see the pair like never seen them before. Ant-Man will be voiced by Josh Keaton (Voltron: Legendary Defender, Transformers Prime) and the Wasp will be voiced by Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory, The Bronze).

Furthermore, Lane used the word "retro" to describe the series of shorts, so I assume we'll get to see Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, and Janet van Dyne, the original Wasp, carrying out dangerous and covert missions during the Cold War.
