Wolverine and the X-Men Premieres Tomorrow!




All of you UK reader better not forget that Wolverine and the X-Men premieres tomorrow morning (August 2) on BBC2 UK!! Since I don't live in the UK and this series won't be coming to North America until January, I will be relying on torrents to get my mutant fix.

I fear that the North American ratings for Wolverine and the X-Men will be hurt by the fact that the show is being broadcast six months earlier in the UK. The scores of fans waiting for this show will simply download the episodes and have no reason to watch it when it actually comes to Nicktoons.

In other Wolverine and the X-Men news, Lionsgate, the fine folks behind the Marvel Animated Features, have acquired the DVD distribution rights for the series. They haven't stated whether they will be releasing single discs or a season set (my guess would be both) but we should expect to see the first release later on in 2009.

Also, here is some interesting news. At the San Diego Comic-Con, Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost said that the Hulk vs Wolverine movie is a prequel to Wolverine and the X-Men and that Wolverine and the Hulk will have a rematch in episode seven. Interesting, no?
