Marvel and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan have announced that they’ll release Iron Man: Rise Of Technovore, a new feature-length anime on DVD in the spring of 2013.
The movie is being produced by the anime studio Madhouse (the Marvel anime TV shows of Blade, Wolverine, X-Men, and Iron Man), written by Iron Man: Armored Adventures scribe Brandon Auman, and directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki (Texhnolyze).
Joined by Black Widow, War Machine, Nick Fury, The Punisher, and Hawkeye, the anime, according to the press release, “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 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.”
More details of the project are slated to be announced on Saturday at the “Marvel TV Presents” panel at New York Comic-Con.
