Cartoon Network has announced a Wednesday, Nov. 24 (7 p.m. ET/PT) premiere for Firebreather, the network's first CGI original movie, based on the Image Comics title by Phil Hester and Andy Kuhn.

The film is directed by Aeon Flux's Peter Chung and is written by Jim Krieg, the story editor of the upcoming Green Lantern animated series.

Here's how the network describes the movie:

"Firebreather delivers fierce action in the clash of two worlds where monsters roam the Earth and past secrets are exposed. At the center of it all, a teenage boy named Duncan struggles to find his place as half-Kaiju and half-human.

"It's not easy being a teen like Duncan. His mom wants him to pay more attention to his homework, while his dad -- a 120-foot, fire-breathing Kaiju from the depths of the earth -- wants him to follow in his monstrous footsteps. Duncan faces trials by fire from two worlds -- in one, overcoming his father's challenges to prepare for the Kaiju throne; in the other, coping with life in a new high school. Ultimately, Firebreather is a story of a boy choosing between two different paths put before him by his parents. Through it all, only Duncan can determine his own future."

The Firebreather voice cast includes Jesse Head as Duncan. Dana Delany as Margaret, Kevin Michael Richardson as Belloc, Reed Diamond as Barnes, Amy Davidson as Jenna Tia Texada as Isabel, Dante Basco as Kenny and Josh Keaton as Troy.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers provide the movie's closing song, "Warlocks."

The Continuum has obtained descriptions of the next three episodes of Batman: The Brave and the Bold on Cartoon Network:

Friday, Nov. 5: "Plague of the Prototypes!" -- When Batman is on call, Gotham is kept safe by his squad of trusty Bat-Robots, but when Black Mask reprograms the unstoppable soldiers to do his bidding, Batman must blow the dust off "Proto," his bumbling (but good-hearted) beta-test robot to help him stop the villain.

Friday, Nov. 12: "Cry Freedom Fighters!" -- When an alien race tries to invade Earth, Batman, Plastic Man and the Freedom Fighters (led by the Uncle Sam) race to their planet to stop them. The alien's numbers prove overwhelming and it falls on Plastic Man to find the patriotism within to stop them.

Friday, Nov. 12: "Knights of Tomorrow!" -- A glimpse into the future reveals Dick Grayson has assumed the Batman mantle after the Caped Crusader retired and fathered a son, Damian, with Catwoman. Despite his parents' wishes, Damian does not want to follow their legacy, but when Joker returns, he may have no choice!

Marvel Comics has announced a February release for Doctor Strange: From The Marvel Vault #1, a new story about one of the most important missions of the sorcerer�s career.

The book is written by Roger Stern, with art by Neil Vokes.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"This lost work chronicles the Sorcerer Supreme's first night in his Greenwich Village brownstone...and his first mystical encounter there! The start of a series of newly discovered lost stories, Doctor Strange: From The Marvel Vault #1, gives readers a chance to witness the early days of Marvel�s preeminent sorcerer! Secrets abound! Sorcery unveiled! Magic, the likes of which have never been seen!"

Editor Tom Brevoort relayed how the story surfaced.

"Over the years, there have been a number of stories that we've commissioned but that were never completed for one reason or another. I and other editors up here have held onto the work that was finished, sometimes for decades, in the hope that eventually we'd be able to see these stories in print," Brevoort said.

"And now, with our office-move, these materials are coming to light once again. In addition to this Doctor Strange story, which was originally intended for the Marvel Universe series we published in the late '90s, we've found four or five other tales which deserve to be completed and printed -- so we'll be doing just that in the months to come!"
