The New Stuff


Disney, Toei and Bandai to Collaborate on Avengers Anime


Anime-inspired takes on Marvel’s franchises are by no means new. We’ve already had anime versions of the X-Men, Iron Man, and other heroes. However, most of these takes were still undeniably Marvel, with the anime influences being limited to the art style. We’ve never had a true Japanese take on the franchises, but that’s all going to change this 2014, as Bandai and Toei will both help Disney in creating a new anime-inspired interpretation of The Avengers.

Dubbed The Avengers: Disc Wars, the new permutation on Marvel’s premiere superteam can be described as Avengers meets Pokemon, with merchandising being handled by Bandai while the animated series itself is in the hands of Toei (Under Disney/Marvel’s watchful eye, we imagine.)

The series focuses on a technology that was developed in order to imprison digitized super villains, which Loki managed to get his hands on and exploit, resulting in the heroes being trapped themselves. Now it is up to Spider-Man and a group of kids to thwart the Norse god of mischief’s plans by traveling the world and collecting the discs, which gives them the ability to summon the heroes trapped within.

We…we’re not entirely sure what to make of the premise yet, but we’re willing to give it a chance when it comes out. Stay tuned.
