MARVEL STUDIOS TO GET IN ON THE DIRECT-TO-VIDEO ANIMATION GAME WITH IRON MAN & HULK TEAM UP
Marvel has been getting their asses handed to them by DC/Warner Bros. in the realm of feature-length, direct-to-video animated films, but all of that may change with the Blu-ray release of Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United on April 23. The movie, which will be rendered in a unique combination of CG and traditional animation, will be the first animated project from Marvel Studios, and will apparently pick up after the events of The Avengers movie. Sadly, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige crushed any hopes of a direct sequel detailing where Tony and Bruce sped off to after the events of the film:
In the film, the two heroes team up to take on Zzzax, that living field of energy baddie from the comics who kinda looks like this guy from Scooby-Doo:
Predictably, neither Downey nor Ruffalo will provide voice work for their respective characters. Adrian Pasdar (Peter’s douchey brother from Heroes) will voice Iron Man/Tony Stark, Fred Tatasciore (various Hulk cartoons) will voice Banner/Hulk, and Dee Bradley Baker (Klaus the Goldfish on American Dad) is Zzzax.
