People here you ‘might’ know: 
Greg Johnson 
Warren Ellis 
Craig Kyle
Steve Blum 
Masao Maruyama, CEO of Madhouse Studios
 
Welcome to Marvel Animation. Comic-con needs to stop handing out energy drinks. I don’t have time to grab bottled waters, so they’re all I’ve been drinking. I hope my body can take it! 
 
Who wants anime themed on Marvel? The word on the street is that we’re gonna get a first look at the Anime rendition by Madhouse Studios. 
 
Normally a late panel is in no way a surprise, but a given my current energy drink twitch, I'm totally ready to hulk out. The lights have dimmed and we're watching a compilation of Marvel Animation titles both old and new. People are cheering for Hulk vs. Wolverine.Eric Rollman is describing the evolution of the beloved 90's cartoon into our current projects. The rise of the stand alone cartoons in particular is something they hit on. Announcement: Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes will be joining the Nicktoons line-up.
 
Yay Steve Blum! You "comic only" readers might just know him as Wolverine, but anime fans trade pictures of him as currency. Oh, juked out. They only introduced the people for the Iron Man cartoon. Though, giant CG Ultimo and MODOK are kinda cool. New episodes start tonight at 7 PST. Go watch it!
 
Now onto Wolverine and the X-men. Banter, banter, banter. Ooo, they're showing us shots from an episode with Wolverine in Mojoverse, as well as Archangel. Apparently this world tour won't end in the Mojoverse, but will lead them to Days of the Future Past and into the "First Class" timeframe. DEADPOOL. Whoa, wait... doesn't Nolan North do Cyclops? This could be awkward.
 
SOMETHING AWESOME: One of the Lionsgate/Madhouse titles will be "Planet Hulk." Don't know if it will lead into the World War Hulk though. Looks great though.
If you could compress the entire trailer into one image, it would be this.
"Wolverine Anime" - super, super, anime stylized. I just saw a young'ish, skinny Wolverine destroy an army of ninjas and demons. Sold. Expect that in 2010.
"Iron Man Anime" - Oh man, if Japan could animate anything, it would be fighting robots. Light cg, well implemented. Iron Man just destroyed a city in the process of saving it,
 
Quote of the Day:
Masao Maruyama "I've put myself into this project body and soul. I think you will like it, but if you don't... I'm probably fired (looks at Warren Ellis)... Can I stay here?"
 
The four Madhouse Anime titles have been revealed!: Iron Man, Wolverine, Blade, and X-Men.
Hopefully 2010. Details and shots will follow as they become available. 
 
Done. Time for Vertigo. NOT. First peak at Thor, Tales of Asgard. Looks great, except the end, where it said 2011.

Is Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes the show they did awhile back or something new?

#2 Posted by John_Martone (14 posts) - - Show Bio
@danhimself: Old show. They haven't covered anything new yet.
#3 Posted by danhimself (22278 posts) - - Show Bio

oh well...it was a semi decent show

#4 Posted by danhimself (22278 posts) - - Show Bio

Deadpool? In Wolverine and the X-men?  he wasn't in any of the episodes

#5 Posted by Bruce Vain (1869 posts) - - Show Bio

Like to see Cap and Logan done anime style.

#6 Posted by danhimself (22278 posts) - - Show Bio

can't wait for most of this stuff...the anime stuff sounds really cool

#7 Posted by John_Martone (14 posts) - - Show Bio
@danhimself: Season 2 teaser. They also showed Colossus and Magik if that strikes your fancy.
 
And yeah, actually, I got goosebumps watching the Iron Man trailer. Wolverine was gorgeous, but we'll have to see if the story justifies the change in style. It was less Silver Samurai ninja, and more Blade of the Immortal posturing.

Sounds wonderful. I was hoping for an Iron Fist anime, but it'll never happen.

Not I anime ruins comic characters, just look at that Iron Man armored adventures crap

I enjoyed the Young Avenger, was that crazy about Ultimate Avenger, the manga line and this both look great.  The one thing I think that D.C. animation does better then Marvel when it comes to animation is they use real actors for the voices as apposed to professional voice actors.  Pro Voice guys just sound to corny some of the times

I forgot about the huk vs stories.  Well done.  The animation style works well with that American Jap. manga style.  Did good for the DCAU why not with Marvel as well.

A Blade anime? Badass!

I always thought that some anime simply look beautiful, but they're wasted on excessively strange or just irritating (IMO) plots and characters. With established characters I hope that the shows stay at least serious in the sense that you can take them seriously (IE: no hideous dubs, please). I look forward to these shows.....maybe they'll be a good jumping-off point into further anime.

i don't think mangaverse is that bad

#18 Posted by ARMIV (4140 posts) - - Show Bio

The Iron Man one sounds like a definite!

I'd love to see an anime based movies on various comic book series. I don't think anime/manga ruins comic books. It's ruined when an artist poorly imitates a anime-like style.

Wolverine looks a little 'Eh' but Iron Man looks like it could be pretty rad. The big issue I have with this style, is that it all mimic each other. It's like they're all very close to the same. If the can keep the styles separate and the stories are at leased based off the real stories I think these could be good though.
