Anime Iron Man and Wolverine Premiering July 29

By SuperHeroHype

Jun 23rd, 2011

G4 has announced that the premieres of the anime Iron Man and Wolverine series will happen on July 29 at 11pm:

This summer, G4 and Marvel team up to bring fans a whole new way to see their favorite Super Heroes with the premiere of two original Marvel anime series, “Iron Man” and “Wolverine.” The eagerly anticipated series will air exclusively on G4 with twelve half-hour weekly episodes that include interconnecting storylines and cameo appearances by several popular Marvel characters. G4 viewers can be part of all the action when “Iron Man” premieres on Friday July 29th at 11pm ET/PT followed by “Wolverine” at 11:30pm ET/PT and will air weekly Fridays from 11:00-Midnight ET/PT. With epic battles, action-packed storylines and mind-blowing animation, these series star some of the most popular Super Hero comic book characters of all time. And for more intense action, two new Marvel anime series—X-Men and Blade—will premiere later this year, exclusively on G4.

G4 is the exclusive U.S. television home of the four brand-new anime series, guided by New York Times best-selling author Warren Ellis (Iron Man: Extremis, Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis) and produced by Madhouse for Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan (SPEJ). Adrian Pasdar (“Heroes,” “Castle,” “Profit”) will lend his voice to the character of Tony Stark in “Iron Man” while Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes,” “Gilmore Girls,” “Rocky Balboa”) takes on the title role in “Wolverine.”

"Iron Man"
In an effort to make amends for his past in weapons manufacturing, Tony Stark has dedicated himself to building the world up rather than tearing it down. Traveling to Japan to build a new arc reactor that will deliver unlimited free energy to the Japanese people, Stark is challenged by the Japanese government and the media when he attempts to import the necessary nuclear priming device. When the nuclear reactor is repeatedly attacked by the mysterious Zodiac consortium, Stark must gather his allies to take on Zodiac and its mastermind.

"Wolverine"
Based on the popular graphic novel by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, the series begins when Mariko, the love of Logan’s life, is forced back to Japan by her crime-lord father, Shingen. Logan vows to get her back at any cost. He is plunged into a chaotic world of corruption and violence, forcing him to team up with young assassin, Yukio, to battle their way through the Japanese criminal underworld.

The "Iron Man” and "Wolverine" anime series are produced by Madhouse, Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan. Sony Pictures Television is the distributor.

Sounds awesome. When will get some screen shots or something? I'm interested in seeing the aesthetic.

Marvel Animation Sets Blade and Wolverine Anime DVDs for July 31st

by SuperHeroHype

May 29, 2012

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Marvel Animation have announced plans to release their "Blade" and "Wolverine" Anime series on DVD July 31st. The two-disc sets will include all 12 episodes from each series and six all-new featurettes.

In the first series, Eric Brooks (Harold Perrineau) – known as Blade - seeks revenge on Deacon Frost, the vampire who killed his mother while she was still pregnant with him. With all the powers of a vampire and none of their weaknesses, Blade's quest leads him throughout Southeast Asia in search of Frost. In the Golden Triangle, he discovers a vampire plot that threatens to take down the whole world.

The three new featurettes include "The Marvel Anime Universe: Blade Re-Awakened", which explores the process that went into developing this new take on the vampire-hunter. Other featurettes include "Blade: The Vampire-Slayer", comparing Marvel’s Blade with traditional vampire stories, and "Special Talk Session: Marvel Anime's Blade and Wolverine", an interview with series creators.

The "Wolverine" anime stars Milo Ventimiglia as Logan who heads into action When the love of his life, Mariko Yashida, is taken back to Japan by her father Shingen, a notorious crime lord. Once in Japan, she is forcibly betrothed to Kurohagi, a cruel criminal associate of her father, to solidify their business interests. Determined to get her back, Logan is plunged into a tangled web of corruption and violence at every turn. But with the help of young assassin Yukio, he just might manage to claw his way through the criminal underworld to confront Shingen and save Mariko.

New featurettes include "The Marvel Anime Universe: Wolverine Reborn", providing insights into the process for creating the series. "The Ferocious Anti-Hero: Wolverine Defined" explores the hero’s character, and "Wolverine Meets X-Men" contains an interview with the creators of the Marvel anime Wolverine and X-Men.

Both series are guided by New York Times best-selling author Warren Ellis ("Iron Man: Extremis", "Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis"), and produced by Madhouse for Marvel Television and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan (SPEJ).

The Iron Man one is pretty good so far. I've watched about half of it.
