Iron Man, Wolverine set on Nick
Nicktoons Network, Nickelodeon's 24-hour animation channel, and Marvel Entertainment have teamed up for two new animated series centering on the comic book characters Iron Man and Wolverine.
The series -- "Iron Man: The Animated Series" (a co-production with French-based Method Films) and "Wolverine and the X-Men" (a co-production with Toonz Entertainment, Singapore and First Serve International) -- are set to debut exclusively on Nicktoons in first-quarter 2009. Each series consists of 26 half-hour episodes.
The news comes less than two months before the feature film "Iron Man," starring Robert Downey Jr., is released in theaters (May 2). Wolverine, played in the "X-Men" films by Hugh Jackman, also is getting his own film next year with "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (May 1, 2009).
Nicktoons reaches 50 million homes.
