Now, a new promo video has just been released for the second half.

Robert Downey Jr. Shoots Down Iron Man 4 Rumors

Marvel has already confirmed in the past that their plans for the solo Iron Man film franchise only go up to Iron Man 3, so we have no idea where rumors of a fourth film came from, but there are rumors floating around and they’re making enough noise to attract the attention of Robert Downey Jr. himself, who broke his silence and confirmed that there are no plans for a fourth film.

Some of the best scenes in the Avengers movie were those that featured Tony Stark and Bruce Banner in the screen together, and while we’re not likely to see them team up in a live action movie before Avengers 2 comes out, Marvel has decided to give fans exactly what they want via a CG-animated movie titled Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United, which is scheduled to come out for the Blu Ray, DVD, and digital platforms.

Marvel’s Iron Man Anime and Wolverine Anime bring Disney to G4

Marvel's Iron Man Anime and Wolverine Anime bring Disney to G4

Ever since the comic book giant was acquired by Disney, Marvel has seemingly been on a roll. From the amazingly popular Iron Man franchise, to this month’s Captain America, to next year’s Avengers and Spider-Man reboot, all things have Marvel have, aptly, “Assembled.” In hopes to keep the hype train running, Marvel brought anime versions of some of their bigger icons to G4, with Iron Man Anime and Wolverine Anime. Two more are expected to follow, with the launch of X-Men and Blade later down the line. The Madhouse and Sony Pictures series have received a bit of flack during the previews and a few Comic Con 2011 discussions. Now that Marvel has officially dipped into the world of anime, what are your thoughts on the art style, design, and direction?

Marvel Anime on G4, Iron Man and Wolverine

Marvel Anime on G4, Iron Man and Wolverine

On July 29th, at 11pm, Iron Man will Pulsar Blast into anime. Thirty minutes later, at 11:30pm, Wolverine will claw through anime. How and where? G4 is the answer to both, as Marvel Anime makes its big debut on the network. Adrian Pasdar will voice Tony Stark, while Milo Ventimiglia takes on the role of Logan. Every week, fans will be rewarded with a new episode of the Disney-owned series, all leading toward the launch of two new anime toons, X-Men and Blade, all of which are produced by Madhouse for Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment. The question is, will you be watching?

Fanimation: John Banana celebrates The Rocketeer 20th anniversary

Fanimation: John Banana celebrates The Rocketeer 20th anniversary

Twenty years ago, Disney brought a classic super hero to the live action big screen: The Rocketeer. Set in the Indiana Jones-friendly WWII era, the Rocketeer was a regular, non super-powered man with two advantages: a rocket jet pack strapped to his back, and an unparalleled amount of bravery to have a rocket jet pack strapped to his back! The result was a flying man, whose helmet (that allowed him to steer) helped give him a very retro Iron Man look. Marvel’s Tony Stark would be proud! Though the film was live action, John Banana decided to take the adventure in a new direction – perfectly suited for CG animation. This fan created animation (aka “Fanimation”) is an astonishing, Pixar-like piece that perfectly immortalizes the Disney icon, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the film.

Wolverine and Iron Man Anime hits G4 in July

Wolverine and Iron Man Anime hits G4 in July

Time to pop the claws, and … pulsar the beams? That doesn’t sound quite right. But we’re assured by Marvel they have a much better handle on their comic book super heroes. Two in particularly, Wolverine and Iron Man, will be heading to G4 this summer, each in their own anime series. Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, has been working hard at voice casting the new toons, which recently got a teaser showing at WonderCon. Adrian Pasdar will star as Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, as he battles the evil Zodiac Organization. Meanwhile, Milo Ventimiglia will don the adamantium as Wolverine in the series that sees Logan claw his way through Japan’s criminal underworld. A Blade and X-Men anime series will also hit the network later this year, helping spread Disney’s icons.

Dominic Cooper to play Iron Man's dad in Captain America: The First Avenger

Iron Man 2 has had a great run in theaters, pulling in just under $300 million at the box office in it’s first 30 days. As the sequel to Marvel’s first Iron Man film, we now can see how the Disney owned company has developed a franchise. The second film also gave us a deeper glimpse into Tony Stark’s family life, with scenes of his father, Howard Stark, and how the elder Stark was a pivotal player in the hero world before there was an Iron Man. Playing on that idea, Marvel has cast Dominic Cooper to play an even younger version of Iron Man’s dad Howard Stark in the retro scenes of the upcoming Captain America film due out July 22nd, 2011, Captain America: The First Avenger. Marvel is creeping closer and closer to getting the entire universe of super heroes on film in the Avengers!
