Marvel First Looks -- and more!

BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD

Cartoon Network has announced Batman: The Brave and The Bold, a new animated series slated to debut in 2008.

The series will be set in a new continuity. Here's how the show is described:

"Batman isn't going at it alone this time! From Warner Bros. Animation comes the latest interpretation of the classic Batman franchise. Our caped crusader is teamed up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventure with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside Batman. Though still based in Gotham, Batman will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home."

The series, consisting of 30-minute episodes, will be produced by James Tucker and Linda M. Steiner -- the team behind Legion of Super Heroes -- and will be executive produced by Sam Register.

Other creators include line producer Amy McKenna, story editor Michael Jelenic and directors Ben Jones, Brandon Vietti and Michael Chang.

EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS LEAVE SMALLVILLE

Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, creators and executive producers of Smallville, announced on Wednesday night they are leaving The CW series.

Gough told The Continuum he and Millar are focusing full time on feature films. Their film credits include Spider-Man 2 and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.

"We are currently working on Jungle Cruise for Disney," Gough told The Continuum, "and producing a movie for them as well, which I can't talk about because there hasn't been an official announcement, but it starts shooting in May."

Smallville has been picked up for an eighth -- and likely final -- season by The CW.

Gough also sent an open letter regarding the pair's departure. To read the letter, CLICK HERE.
