At one time it was reported the Guardians of the Galaxy movie was actually going to be animated.

While that obviously didn't turn out to be true, it has now become known an animated project to be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is in development (note: the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy animated series is not connected to the movie).

Newsarama reports during the final day of the Emerald City Comic Con at the "Marvel Animation Presents" panel, Marvel's VP of Animation Development and Production Cort Lane confirmed an animated project is in the works.

Next, a fan asks about whether the animation team will produce something that takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"I can't announce anything, but things are in the works," said Lane, calling out the upcoming Netflix series as a proof of concept for things that tie-in to the larger world.

Nothing else was said about the project, but it will be interesting to see what they do with an animated version of the MCU. Will the animated series/movies use existing characters? Or introduce new characters similar to the above mentioned Netflix series? Perhaps a mix of both?
