I'll admit, I haven't been expecting much from this. But I'm pretty sold based on this trailer for the new animated series.
The premise looks to be that it'll be an X-Men series WITHOUT Charles Xavier and Jean Grey (who get killed off early on, which is a genuine shocker), which already separates it from the pack. This trailer gave off more of a Direct-To-DVD movie feel than an ongoing series, which isn't a bad thing. I'll definitely give it a go, as it already looks better than the recent Fantastic Four series.
Fun fact: Wolverine is voiced by Steven Jay Blum, who voiced the character for Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and both X-Men: Legends games.
Recommended for Children of W's and X-Men fans.

Don't mess with Superman Prime or he'll kill you to death!
You CAN'T have anyone other than Steven Blum to voice Wolverine. Sure, they came close in the Ultimate Spider-Man game with Keith Sara--Sjahr...Sh...Holtz from Angel. But Blum has nailed it ever since the first X-Men Legends. Tom Kane is also a good choice for Magneto, but he'll never equal the awesomeness of Tony Jay from Legends I (think Megabyte from ReBoot, it's the exact same voice).
It appears the trailer's been taken down (I don't see it anywhere on the link provided), but the art looks decent. Only complaint is GambiClops. I've never been a fan of Swimming Cap Cyclops, and the trenchcoat is just... wrong on him.
I get no trailer. It's just a promo poster and words that make me not want to see it ever.
Wolverine is like this big joke Marvel is putting on us. He's on every team, in every book, he's indestructible and can destroy anything and anyone. In the past month he's been in seemingly every book Marvel puts out or he's mentioned in it (Tony Stark even mentions him in in books that have no reason to have anything to do with him!)...
It's getting fucking ridiculous.
They need to just out his ass as a skrull or something.
I have to say that my curiosity was piqued for this one since I saw it on Broadway about 20(!) years ago. I really liked the Broadway version and was interested to see how it translated to screen. Guess I will wait until On Demand.
