BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD: "NIGHT OF THE HUNTRESS!"

Warner Bros. Animation has released 25 images, two clips and a description from "Night of the Huntress!," the Friday, May 1 episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold on Cartoon Network.

For the first clip, CLICK HERE.

For the second clip, CLICK HERE.

Here's how the episode is described:

"Blue Beetle develops a crush on the slightly older and far-more-dangerous femme fatale Huntress, but there is little time for love with Baby Face busting his gang out of prison for a major heist! Watch the crowd closely during the jailbreak sequence to see some of your favorite villains including Pharaoh, Skeleton Keyes, Polecat Perkins and more!"

The teaser features Black Canary and Solomon Grundy.

Voices for the episode include Deidrich Bader as Batman/Solomon Grundy, Will Friedle as Blue Beetle, Grey DeLisle as Black Canary, Ellen Greene as Mrs. Manface, Armin Shimerman as Calculator/cop, Gregg Berger and scientist/mob boss, Tara Strong as Helena/Huntress and Tom Kenny as Babyface.

The episode was written by Adam Beechen and directed by Ben Jones.

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE ROUNDUP

Taylor Kitsch, who plays Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, said he understood the anticipation for Remy LeBeau to become part of the X-Men film franchise and worked hard to meet expectations.

"When I arrived in Sydney, to begin work on the film, I told the producers I was here to train and to work," Kitsch said.

Training included sessions with the boe staff and fighting sticks - as well as long hours going through packs and packs of trading cards, learning the character's signature moves.

"By the time cameras rolled, I could do quite a bit with a deck of cards," said Kitsch, best known from NBC's Friday Night Lights.

Gambit's mere presence in last summer's presentation at Comic-Con International in San Diego drew huge cheers.

Said producer Ralph Winter, who's been involved in all the X-Men movies: "Before the start of each film, people would ask me, 'Is Gambit in the movie? Is he going to throw cards?' And I'd say, 'Hang on, we'll get to him.'"

IRON MAN: ARMORED ADVENTURES: BLACK PANTHER

Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman is providing the voice of Black Panther in Nicktoons' Iron Man: Armored Adventures, The Continuum has learned.

Two other actors are voicing Black Panther this year. Djimon Hounsou stars in BET's upcoming Black Panther series, and Taye Diggs is the voice of T'Challa in Cartoon Network's upcoming Marvel Super Hero Squad.

Bowyer-Chapman, 24, is a model and actor from Edmonton. His credits include a stint on Stargate Universe.

Black Panther is featured in an episode titled "Panther's Prey." Here's how the episode is described:

"Iron Man is tracking an international thief named Moses Magnum right to AIM's secret headquarter, but someone else is after Magnum as well -- the Black Panther. Magnum stole somethng that belongs to the Panther, and the Panther aims to get it back, even if he has to go through Iron Man to do it. Iron Man has to choose between helping Panther or taking down AIM, but for the Panther there's no choice at all. Because the Black Panther has learned Iron Man's secret identity -- and if Iron Man interferes, he'll tell the whole world."

Iron Man: Armored Adventures will debut on Nicktoons on Friday, April 24.
