Marvel toons Indians on 'X-Men'

Marvel Studios chair-CEO Avi Arad and FST chief exec Ed Borgerding will announce the project today, during this year’s Mipcom TV mart.

Companies are set to produce 26 episodes, which will be available for distribution in 2007. The third “X-Men” feature from 20th Century Fox is slated for a spring debut.
