The Batman vs. Dracula, an animated movie released on DVD on Tuesday, Oct. 18, will premiere on Cartoon Network on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 5 p.m. (ET), according to schedules obtained by The Continuum.

The movie will have an encore on Monday, Oct. 31 at 5 p.m.

Next month will also see the following new episodes of Teen Titans:

* "Trust" on Oct. 8: The Brotherhood of Evil has begun its master plan to eliminate all of the young superheroes around the globe, starting with honorary Titans Wildebeest and Hotspot. This new threat brings Robin to Morocco. But with an unknown enemy, how can anyone know who to trust?

* "For Real" on Oct. 15: Control Freak returns to Titan Tower with "The Ultimate Titans Challenge," a series of events designed specifically to challenge the Teen Titans. But what happens to Control Freakšs big plan when he finds himself facing not the "real" Titans -- but the Titans East?

* "Snow Blind" on Oct. 22: While battling a mysterious creature in the wilds of Siberia, Starfire is lost in a blinding snowstorm. A reclusive young soldier named Red Star comes to her aid and the two become fast friends. When Robin and the rest of the Titans arrive, they discover Red Star hides not only a tragic past, but a destructive secret.

* "Kole" on Oct. 29: While in the Arctic Circle, the Teen Titans once again take on Dr. Light. And when an accident sends the Titans through the ice, they discover a new exotic Underworld -- and two new superheroes, Kole and her caveman sidekick Gnarrk.

* Hide and Seek on Nov. 5: With the other Teen Titans off fighting exciting battles with the Brotherhood of Evil, Raven is left with the worst task of all -- transporting three rambunctious future superheroes to safety. But this simple task turns into an adventure in babysitting as Raven and her young charges are chased through the Alps by the Brotherhood of Evil's Msr. Mallah.

Marvel Entertainment anticipates The Punisher 2 will be in theaters late next year, vice chairman Peter Cuneo said during a webcast at the Thomas Weisel Partners Consumer Conference on Tuesday in New York City.

"Our strategy is we'll have 10-15 character franchises going on at the same time," Cuneo said during the half-hour presentation, which included the chart above (click on the image for a larger and more detailed look).

Marvel's deal to produce its own films, with Paramount distributing, will give it more control over release dates. Cuneo called the deal "the best arrangement for anyone in the history of filmmaking."

Cuneo said that the Fantastic Four animated series, produced by France's Antefilms, will serve as a bridge between the first FF movie and the second. He said Marvel routinely gets downloads from the production in France.

On its animated movies with Lions Gate, Cuneo said that Marvel is in charge of the creative content from its Los Angeles offices, but Lions Gate is paying the creators.

Cuneo said he anticipates income from video games will surpass that of toys.

In other Marvel movie news:

* Fantastic Four castmates Jessica Alba and Julian McMahon were reunited on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday night. Alba was promoting her new movie Into the Blue and McMahon was promoting his television series Nip Tuck.

Alba thanked the fans who supported Fantastic Four. "It broke the box-office slump," she said.

McMahon talked about his father being prime minister of Australia, and Alba noted what it was like promoting Fantastic Four there.

"I went to Australia with this guy and he is a huge star -- everywhere," Alba said. "People like bow down to him. It's weird."

Alba appeared on NBC's The Today Show on Wednesday and acknowledged her apperance has been important in landing roles but she also has the acting chops.

"When I got hired for Sin City, it had nothing to do my ability to dance, even though everybody seems to think it's the whole reason why I got hired," she said. "It really was me finding the character and doing scenes with Bruce Willis, and that's really why I did the movie."
