Disney has already started flexing its Marvel muscle with a handful of animated series either in the works or already on the air — and now it sounds like that other Marvel super team could be up next.

Marvel comics editor Steve Wacker dropped some hints in the letters section of the latest issue of Guardians of the Galaxy that imply a Guardians animated series could be in development. Wacker talks about his time at a Disney XD summit for Ultimate Spider-Man, and it turns out Guardians was a very hot topic at the event. Hmm.

Here’s an excerpt:

“Now, look, I can’t officially confirm that we spent a LOT of time talking about the Guardians Of The Galaxy cartoon but wouldn’t that HYPOTHETICALLY… be amazing?”

It makes sense that Marvel would be looking to leverage every Marvel asset they have, and with a Guardians film coming down the pike, corporate synergy dictates that it’d be a perfect time to get folks acclimated to the deep-space team with an animated series.

The Mouse House is already working on Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. Hey, if Hulk’s lesser-known pals can join him for a TV series — why can’t Rocket Raccoon get his day in the sun?

Do you think a Guardians animated series could work?
