Marvel and Sony Japan are teaming up to create an all-new, full-length animated feature film titled Iron Man: Rise of Technovore. The anime movie which is currently in production in Japan will be made available on DVD in Spring of 2013.
Earlier today Marvel unveiled the cover for the movie (which reminded us a lot of the Iron Man movie posters) and revealed that the company plans to discuss the project in more detail during the Marvel TV panel on Saturday, October 13th at 4:15 p.m. ET in Room 1E13 at New York Comic-Con. And while we don't yet have a whole lot to go on as far as the movie is concerned, we did get a little bit of information about the film's premise. According to Marvel, Iron Man: Rise of Technovore will be directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki and will "explore a confrontation between Iron Man and the villainous Ezekiel Stane" after Stan creates new technology that gives Tony Stark's Iron Man armor a run for its money.
Based on the promotional art provided by Marvel, it looks like Iron Man won't be fighting this villain alone, either. It seems he will be joined by the likes of Hawkeye, Black Widow, War-Machine and a brand new face: The Punisher. If this sounds interesting to you, there is sure to be more information about the project revealed later this week at the upcoming convention.
What do you think so far of the premise and the accompanying artwork? Are you interested in an Iron Man anime feature-film?
