Update on Wolverine and the X-men

Postby german_gremlin » Wed Apr 02, 2008 2:35 am

It will air on Nicktoons in the first quarter of 2009. (Wow..Nickelodeon)




PLOT:

When the X-Men are unexpectedly attacked, they separate after Professor X mysteriously disappears. Jean Grey also disappears, leaving Scott distraught and broken. Rogue has joined the Brotherhood. Beast, and Wolverine are so far the only X-Men left on the team as Wolverine tries to bring them back together.

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 the world's destruction. To rescue us from ourselves. To save the future.

An extensive trailer for the series reveals several key moments, such as Professor Xavier and Jean Grey seemingly perishing in a psychic attack followed by a vast explosion that also destroys the mansion. Wolverine is seen recruiting old friends and students, from Beast to Iceman, but Scott Summers has become traumatized by Jean's disappearance and is a broken, sulking heap. The Brotherhood of Mutants is also seen causing havoc, and it is revealed Rogue has joined their ranks, possibly setting the X-Men up when she encounters them again.

Well, we've got Gambit now *yawn*, and based on this, I'd say Nightcrawler plays a rather minor part in the show :(

...although...is it just me, or did Scarlet Witch and he look quite cozy in that scene on Genosha? :shifty

Huh.

Glad I watched the second video before commenting. That first trailer was awful! Horrible lazy animation, voice actors who sounded like regular people pretending to be voice actors, and I think the "high res" video box was stretching it or something making it look even worse. Also it skipped. A. Lot.

Second one looks cool.

I'm wishing I had this channel. I wonder if it will come out in DVD like evo did or not. I like the nightcrawler scene in the second trailer - it was like 'oh woo!'. If you ask me NC's and Bobby's little clips in there were the coolest. Emma's depicted powers were weird...that was her mental projection? And eee nails on chalkboard.

Episode 6 is going to be pretty much a Nightcrawler solo episode, as he helps out a bunch of mutants that are on a freighter heading to Genosha.

SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!



The freighter gets hijacked by pirates - Spiral and the Reavers! They're looking for gladiators to take back to Mojoworld. There are also flashbacks to when Xavier rescued Kurt from the angry mob in Germany. And a VERY cool Nightcrawler vs Spiral sword fight!

Yeah- there are episode summaries up on wiki. I've been telling my X-men fan friends that basically... Nightcrawler takes his sweet time showing up, but when he does HE IS HARDCORE. :)

SPOILERS ***

Me: So basically, he shows up, is a pirate, and then gets tossed around by Mojo who wants him to perform.
Friend: What? Kurt will HATE that! He's not a showman at all!
Me: I know! He's so introverted and shy...
...
...
both: HAHAHAHAHAAAAA

Okay but seriously, I think I need to incorporate that in a comic. :)

Cat - good to see you back again!

And I love the summary dialogue. Yeah, imagine the poor little Circus Boy having to be all dashing and stuff in front of people.

Although with Mojo, well, I imagine it ain't exactly your mama's circus.

Episodes 17 and 18 have been posted. If anyone wants a link, let me know. They are all in Spanish, but even if you don't understand the language, you can still tell what is going on. Episodes #1, 6, 10, 15 and 18 include Kurt, and episodes 6, 10 and 15 feature him.

Episodes 19 and 20 were added on Monday. Episode 19, with Angel, was really good, even 'though there was practically no Kurt.

I think I'm okay waiting and getting them in English. It's hard to wait but... otherwise I'd just be watching them all the time and cleaning drool off the keyboard. :)

Just giving a shout out that the broadcasting is being continued now, episode 13 aired in Canada last week.

Important note: Although not being a fan of canon Rogue I have to admit I'm starting to like her here, she is increasingly pleasant in this episode.
