Exciting news in animation today. Marvel and Lions Gate are teaming up to make some feature-length animated direct-to-DVD adaptations of many of Marvel’s comic-book characters--as many as eight for 2006 and 2007, says this source. The first of these is tentatively titled Ultimate Avengers--it has an estimated running time of about 80 minutes and Curt Geda (Return of the Joker) and Steven Gordon will be sharing the directing duties. Expected rating for this film is PG-13 due to battle sequence/war violence and some possible language (!?!), though the same cannot be said for the rest of the animated films in development. They are still at the storyboard stage, with at least a few likely to be given a PG.

More as this news develops.
