Since I ranted about the Foo Fighters filing suit against Marvel Comics I thought I would write a little bit more about the trailer and the cartoon that has caused the whole mess.
Wolverine and the Xmen
Writer: Greg Johnson
Director: Boyd Kirkland
Producer: First Serve Toonz in association with Marvel
Synopsis: When an explosive event shatters the lives of the X-Men and takes away their mentor, the beaten heroes walk away from it all.
But then they’re given a rare glimpse into the future, and see a world in utter ruin, ruled by giant destructive robots. A world that spiraled out of control because the X-Men had given up.
So now the most legendary of all X-Men takes the lead – Wolverine! Reuniting these broken heroes, Wolverine embarks on the ultimate mission – to prevent de world’s destruction.
To rescue us from ourselves. To save the future.
From what I have seen through the trailer [which by the way is only available via YouTube these days] the show looks pretty good. I sincerely hope that this stupid lawsuit will not stop it from airing. I really want to see this show. We need more good animation on TV [like The Batman, League of Superheroes and now Spider-man (more on Spidey later)].
Â Apparently this was announced by Marvel way back in 2005. Looks like it was supposed to air last year. There is no current information on when or if this cartoon will be airing in the US.
You can view offending trailer for Wolverine and the Xmen here [for now].
