By Marc Strom

This past weekend, Marvel Studios and Marvel Television made a number of announcements, and while we'll have more details on all of them for you in the coming days--including in-depth interviews surrounding the "Marvel One-Shot" films attached to upcoming Blu-ray releases and our live-action television deveolopment slate--we wanted to give you guys the full rundown now on what you may have missed!

EVP, Head of Television Jeph Loeb updated fans on Marvel's live-action TV plans, with two shows featuring the Hulk and Jessica Jones currently in development for ABC, while Cloak & Dagger and Mockingbird have their own shows in development for ABC Family. Check back to in the next couple days for more from Jeph Loeb on the projects, which are currently in the earliest stages of development.

"Ultimate Spider-Man" swings onto Disney XD in 2012, and this weekend we got word on who will lend their voices to Spidey's latest animated adventure! Drake Bell will voice Peter Parker/Spider-Man himself, rounded out by J.K. Simmons (J. Jonah Jameson), Chi McBride (Nick Fury), Steven Weber (Norman Osborn), Clark Gregg (Agent Phil Coulson) and Stan "The Man" Lee as the Janitor!

Also in development is "Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H." with writer Paul Dini, who also wrote the pilot episode for "Ultimate Spider-Man." The concept features Hulk working with a team of his allies, including Red Hulk, Skaar, Jen Walters She-Hulk and A-Bomb.

And for fans of Marvel Knights Animation's "Astonishing X-Men: Gifted," we'll be completing Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's epic with ten more episodes of "Astonishing X-Men."

On the Marvel Anime front, we revealed that Scott Porter ("Friday Night Lights") will voice Cyclops in the English-language version of "X-Men," which will make its Northa Amiercan premiere on G4 September 30!

Finally, from Marvel Studios, you saw the seven posters featuring the cast of "Marvel's The Avengers" drawn by the film's Co-Visual Development Supervisors Ryan Meinerding and Charlie Wen, along with Andy Park, which all combined to make one massive image showing the full team!

And if that's not enough, Clark Gregg will star as Agent Phil Coulson in two new short films, "Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant" and "Marvel One-Shot: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer..." Look for "Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant" exclusively on the "Thor" Blu-ray when it hits shelves September 13, with the second "Marvel One-Shot" following on a future Marvel Blu-ray release.
