Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
During the Marvel Television panel Saturday at New York Comic Con, Marvel Animation Studios debuted trailers for the direct-to-DVD animated movies Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United and Iron Man: Rise of Technovore.
Announced earlier this month, Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United follows Tony Stark and Bruce Banner joining forces to battle the classic Hulk villain Zzzax. Described as a hybrid of computer-generated animation and hand-drawn art, the April 23 release stars Adrian Pasdar (Heroes, Marvel Anime: Iron Man) as Iron Man and Fred Tatasciore (Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes) as the Hulk.
Produced by Madhouse, the studio behind the anime adaptations of Blade, Iron Man, Wolverine and X-Men, Iron Man: Rise of Technovore centers on a confrontation between Tony Stark and Ezekiel Stane, who develops bio-technology that seemingly outclasses the Iron Man armor. When Stane sets up Stark to take the fall for a terrorist attack, Iron Man must evade S.H.I.E.L.D. and clear his name. The feature-length anime, arrives next spring, boasts a cast of characters that includes Black Widow, Hawkeye, War Machine and the Punisher.
