Marvel’s Iron Man will return to his anime form in an upcoming feature-length movie, Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, set for release in the spring of 2013. Marvel plans to release more information about the film this Saturday at the New York Comic Con.
Directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki (“Shigurui,” “TEXHNOLYZE”), with story by Brandon Auman (“The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!,” “Iron Man: Armored Adventures”), the film explores a confrontation between Iron Man and the villainous Ezekiel Stane, who develops new bio-technology that seemingly outclasses the Iron Man armor. After Stane unleashes a terrorist attack and sets Tony Stark up to take the fall, Iron Man must evade S.H.I.E.L.D.’s man hunt and find a way to clear his name.
“Marvel is excited to present an all-new Iron Man adventure featuring the high-tech adrenaline he is known for, in the beautifully rendered anime style of our friends at Madhouse,” said Associate Producer Megan Thomas Bradner. “We’ll get to see familiar Marvel super heroes such as War Machine, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Hawkeye and the Punisher, rendered in anime style for the first time. It’s a can’t miss for any Marvel fan.”
