Wolverine and the X-Men: Why was it cancelled?

So I was just re-watching the episode 'Rover' and wow, it was amazing. Has anyone else seen this episode? It was incredibly cool for me to see the Sentinels engaging the X-Men. I can't get enough of seeing the Sentinels in action!

On re-watching this episode, I noticed that the rogue 'Rover' Sentinel looked a lot like the Mark 1 Sentinels from the X-Men animated show of the early 90's. Did anyone else notice that?

Re: Wolverine and the X-Men: Why was it cancelled?

Did you check the wikipedia entry for the show?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolveri...28TV_series%29

The reason for the cancellation was that they couldn't work out the funding.

I myself didn't like it much. It felt like too much Wolverine and too little X-men.

Didn't the showrunners say that it was set in the same universe as The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes?

I think so, at one point or another. I remember that MRD was mentioned in an episode of EMH so that may validate this assertion.

I thought the show was great, and it sucks that it didn't last longer. It looked like its second season would have been cool.

Yes. Also several characters had the same voices, including Fury (Alex Desert), though his character design changed between the two shows. Of course, several Marvel characters have consistent voices across multiple continuities (including Steve Blum as Wolverine and Fred Tatasciore as Hulk), but there are some subtly shared backstory elements where Wolverine and the Weapon X project are concerned.

Note, however, that although the DVD feature Hulk vs. Wolverine is sometimes alleged to be a prequel to the "Wolverine vs. Hulk" episode of W&tXM, and uses some of the same voice cast and creative staff, it's actually in an incompatible continuity; at least one character who dies in HvW is alive years later in W&tXM, and the Wolverine of HvW learns things about his past that the Wolverine of the show is still in the dark about years later (although that isn't always definitive given what a mess Logan's memory is).

Getting old? Ignoring for a second the *monumental* irony and hypocrisy present in that statement...I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've ever posted in one of your threads.

Also, that's not trolling. That's giving an honest answer in a humorous manner. If you think that's what trolling is then you've never been trolled.

As for the show, yes I enjoyed it for what it was. Not a patch on the Bruce Timm DC stuff, nor as memorable as the old 90's X-men cartoon. Pretty middling overall.

It was a great show. Some of the set pieces were really cool, especially the tactics used by Kitty. I wish it had last longer.

Re: Wolverine and the X-Men: Why was it cancelled?

It's not unusual to have a thread with the title of "why was something cancelled" and really be a discussion about how much one appreciated the show. See threads about Firefly and Dollhouse for examples. Now that the op clarified, maybe that clears up the confusion about whether it was literally about why it was cancelled.

Anyway, I never saw this version. Maybe at some point I'll go back and check it out. I think the premise, which placed Wolverine at front and center, kind of bothered me, but I don't know if the actual show followed closely that premise (irony, I'm judging it by its title ).
