Debuting exclusively on Nicktoons Network in first quarter 2009, Wolverine and the X-Men and Iron Man each feature 26 action-packed, half-hour episodes that follow the respective heroes through dynamic action, adventure and drama as they face foes both familiar and new to their fans.

"Nicktoons Network is first and foremost about showcasing the most creative and unique animation there is, and this partnership with Marvel is another crucial way to super-serve our audiences with something fresh and new," said Keith Dawkins, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Nicktoons Network.

Wolverine and the X-Men (26 half-hour eps):
The story begins as an explosive event shatters the lives of the X-Men and takes away their mentor, Professor X. The beaten heroes, including Beast, Storm, Cyclops and Nightcrawler, walk away from it all but then they are given a rare glimpse into the future, where they see a world in utter ruin ... ruled by giant destructive robots. They discover the world has spiraled out of control because the X-Men have given up. So now the most legendary of all X-Men, Wolverine, must take the lead on the ultimate mission -- to prevent the world's destruction -- while fending off enemies Magneto and The Brotherhood.

Berry Names Baby


Actress Halle Berry has named her new-born daughter Nahla Ariela Aubry. The Oscar winner gave birth to her and her French-Canadian model boyfriend Gabriel Aubry's first child in Los Angeles on Sunday. Berry says, "We didn't have a name picked out until just before we left the hospital. For us it was hard to name the most important person in our life until we met her."

Watts and Schreiber Married?


Naomi Watts has prompted speculation she and boyfriend Liev Schreiber have married in secret in Australia, by showing off a ring on her wedding finger. The pair have been in Watts' homeland while her beau shoots new movie Wolverine there. But Australian newspapers are speculating they took time out to tie the knot during Watts' trip down under to visit Schreiber - after a snapper caught the actress "wearing a large diamond ring and another band with smaller diamonds on her ring finger" as she arrived back in Los Angeles on Monday . The couple were forced to issue a statement denying they had married in June 2007 after Schreiber joked to reporters, "We are married. You got it first. Break the story!" This time around, Watts' representative is refusing to confirm or deny the reports, telling New York gossip column, "I don't comment on her personal life."
