Marvel in partnership with Sony Japan announces a new straight to DVD release Anime Movie featuring our favorite armored Avenger in Iron Man: Rise of Technovore.
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.
The film will be developed by Madhouse, the same production who created Iron Man Anime series and will be slated to be released on Spring 2013. Good to see that they will be adding more characters from the Avengers. But what really puzzles me is the inclusion of Punisher. Let's see how will he fit on the lineup.
How about you? What do you think of this new Anime Movie? Let us know on the comments.
