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?

Ultimate Spider-Man spins a web for Marvel

What happens you bring Marvel Comics together with the Man of Action team? That is, the folks behind the Wolverine, Iron Man, Ben 10, Generator Rex, and Ultimate Alien? Spidey Sense tingling!! That’s right, the result is the upcoming Ultimate Spider-man cartoon, bringing the Disney superhero to Disney XD later next year. Just as Marvel readies the relaunch of Peter Parker on the big screen in the summer of 2012, super villains like the Green Goblin and Venom will be trying to take over the animated world, as well. As we learned from a Spider-Man sneak peek showing during C2E2 2011, the new toon takes place in the early days of Spiderman’s run, where the Web Slinger is still getting used to his powers, turning to supporting characters like Nick Fury to become The Ultimate Spider-Man.

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.

Claws? Check. Eye lasers? Got’em. Weather under control? You know it. Anime styling? Now we’re talking! Seems like Marvel’s upcoming X-Men Anime has it all, from all of your favorite Mutants (Wolverine, Storm, Cyclops, Beast, Professor X, etc.) to the dynamic action adventure they’ll be quested on!

Inspector Gadget and Johnny Test to Viper Comics

Inspector Gadget and Johnny Test to Viper Comics

Typically, as seen with specials like Wolverine and the X-Men, it’s the other way around – comics becoming cartoons. But now, two generations worth of toons are now headed into the media of comic books; Inspector Gadget and Johnny Test are making the full transition from animation to the printed page, as Viper Comics signs the two properties to comic book deals. Inspector Gadget, DIC Entertainment’s (now Cookie Jar Entertainment’s) classic 80s toon, features a cyborg detective, whose human body stores multiple bionic gadgets — somewhat like an early Generator Rex! Johnny Test, on the other (non-bionic) hand, follows the adventures of Johnny and his brilliant twin sisters Susan and Mary. Fans can expect a graphic novel collection of each to hit store shelves in early 2011, along side a field dominated by Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, and other Marvel and DC super heroes.

Marvel releases Wolverine and the X-Men: Final Crisis Trilogy DVD

Marvel releases Wolverine and the X-Men: Final Crisis Trilogy DVD

The X-Men seem like a nice group of fellas. With Professor Xavier at the helm, Cyclops leads the team of Mutants into battle, always successfully thwarting Magneto and other villains along the way. Well, that’s typically how it plays out. In Wolverine and the X-Men: Final Crisis Trilogy, Marvel’s latest X-Men DVD, it’s a much different world. Xavier has portrayed an apocalyptic future world, that needs the X-men, with Wolverine at the lead, to save it. The Phoenix is in danger, Magneto has launched the Sentinel army, Master Mold aims to track down, and kill, every mutant on the planet … yeah, doesn’t sound so fun. But, it makes for a darn good DVD! Especially seeing the heroes fight their way through this fright fest for the side of good. Take a look at the official write up below, then head to your local video store to pick it up
