A trailer for Marvel’s feature length anime Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore is online and can be watched below.
In the film, billionaire Tony Stark, in his Iron Man armor, prevents an attack from a mysterious new foe, but innocent bystanders are killed, including his best friend War Machine, Lt. Colonel James Rhodes. Detained for questioning by S.H.I.E.L.D., Iron Man escapes, determined to find the mastermind behind the attack. Pursued by Black Widow and Hawkeye, Iron Man enlists the help of the ruthless vigilante The Punisher. But can the Armored Avenger handle what he finds when he catches the person responsible and is forced to face his deadliest weapon, a biotechnology called Technovore that could wipe out all life on the planet?
Matthew Mercer provides the voice of Iron Man in the film with “The Walking Dead’s” Norman Reedus as The Punisher. Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore is directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki (Shigurui, Texhnolyze) with a story by Brandon Auman (The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!, Iron Man: Armored Adventures). The film will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on April 16.
