Marevel Announces an Iron Man Anime Movie, Since the Marvel Anime Worked Out So Well


We all remember where we were the Marvel anime series first premiered. The entire world can divide its life into before Studio Madhouse’s Iron Man, Blade, Wolverine and X-Men TV series aired, and afterwards, when life truly became worth living, when the sun started shining every day. and when all war ceased because people were too busy wondering how the hell Japan could get all of Wolverine’s physical details right and yet produce something that looked so little like Wolverine.

Anyways, Marvel just announced an anime movie, also animated by Madhouse, titled Iron Man: Rise of Technovore. As you can see, it will also feature Hawkeye, Black Widow, War Machine, and Togusa from Ghost in the Shell wearing Punisher cosplay (apparently Nick Fury is also in it). Astute fans may remember Technovore starring in a recent episode of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, which will almost certainly be better than whatever this is. In related news, I hope Black Widow is falling in the poster above, because if not her tits have escaped earth’s gravity, which I have to imagine would be pretty uncomfortable. (Via Newsarama)
