While much of Marvel movie news is dominated by Iron Man 3, it isn’t the only film featuring Tony Stark in a world of superheroes and supervillains. Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, an original direct-to-video anime movie produced by Studio Madhouse in conjunction with Marvel, hits DVD/Blu-ray April 16 and sees Iron Man and War Machine go up against Ezekiel Stane, who has developed a deadly new bio-technology.
Marvel has released a new trailer for the animated feature that gives a better look at what to expect from the film, with appearances by many other Marvel mainstay heroes including Black Widow, Hawkeye, the Punisher, Nick Fury and Pepper Potts.
Iron Man: Rise of Technovore is the latest in the line of anime collaborations between Madhouse and Marvel. The two previously released a series of programming on G4 with the Marvel Anime banner, including shows based on Iron Man, X-Men, Wolverine and Blade.
Rise of Technovore stars Matthew Mercer as Iron Man, Norman Reedus as The Punisher and Clare Grant as Black Widow.
