Animated Wolverine Series in the Works

Variety reports that Marvel Entertainment has teamed with Indian animation company First Serve Toonz to produce an animated X-Men series centered on Wolverine.

Marvel Studios chair-CEO Avi Arad and FST chief executive Ed Borgerding will announce the project today, during this year’s Mipcom TV mart.

The companies are set to produce 26 episodes, which will be available for distribution in 2007.

The announcement follows last year’s news that Marvel and French animator Antefilms Productions had partnered on a Fantastic Four animated show available next fall.

Marvel will oversee domestic distribution; FST will handle international and DVD sales.
