    Given that this is supposed to be starting on the BBC sometime this year, does anyone here in the UK have any theories on where this will air. When does the BBC air it's cartoon these days? It's been a long time since I watched anything on CBBC... I thinking it was probably Spider-Man re runs way back in the day - 10 years ago!

    Well if they show it on the regular channels and not the extra ones, it could either be shown on a weekday, where it'll be between 3:30 pm and 5:30 pm, or a weekend, between 7am and 9am, I believe.

    The last Superhero cartoon BBC aired was The Batman and they messed with the schedule so much, they showed half the first season then stopped it for about 6 months before airing it from the beginning of season 1 to the middle of season 2. I fear Wolverine and the X-Men will suffer the same fate of dodgy scheduling.

    Will it be aired on BBC prime or on another BBC channel?

    hi stu i think they will be showing it on the cbbc channel. Not sure about a time ethier. However they are doing a review of CBBC output, i read somewere that there is concern that there are too many import american shows on the BBC so they might not show at all and let ITV pick it up

    This looks better than I expected it to be.

    They seem to be pushing Rogue in a new direction and it seems damn interesting.

    That looks awesome.

    Nice use of "Best of You" in the promo too.

    My only hope for this one is that Toonami lasts long enough to be able to air it. Because it's definently got the right feel.

    Looked cool, I also dug the use of not one but two Foo Fighters songs. Weird to use such high profile songs for a cartoon but whatever.

    That was a great trailer - it was put together a lot better than any of the Marvel/Lions Gates DVDs and created more anticipation than last summer's trailer for The Spectacular Spider-Man did. Bravo!

    The show looks quite similar to X-Men: Evolution, only a lot more mature in both visuals and tone. It seems that they're not ignoring the prejudice between humans and mutants and going right for it this time around - I hope we see more soon.

    Not to mention Soundgarden's "Fresh Tendrils". That was unexpected. But cool none the less. I'll check this show out. A couple of the jokes made me laugh.

    Looks really impressive. A lot darker than the previous series for a kids show, but that's a good thing. Has a US channel picked this up yet? I just can't see it going on 4KidsWB or Toon Disney, so it seems like it would be CN-bound, either Toonami or more likely Dynamite Action Squad.

    This show looks great. I agree with the poster who said that this looks like a more mature version of X-MEN EVOLUTION.

    i wonder why it is taking so long to announce when and what channel it will air. It is obvisouly been made for english speaking, and i doubt Marvel would allow it air in other countries, but the US, but i can understand that they don't want the same fiasco with Fantastic Four cartoon
