Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan announced today the return of iconic super hero, Iron Man, to the beloved world of anime in an all-new feature-length film, “Iron Man: Rise of Technovore.” Produced by Madhouse and currently in production in Japan, the film is slated for release on DVD in the spring of 2013.
“Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore”
Directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki (“Shigurui,” “TEXHNOLYZE”), with story by Brandon Auman (“The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!,” “Iron Man: Armored Adventures”), the film explores a confrontation between Iron Man and the villainous Ezekiel Stane, who develops new bio-technology that seemingly outclasses the Iron Man armor. After Stane unleashes a terrorist attack and sets Tony Stark up to take the fall, Iron Man must evade S.H.I.E.L.D.’s man hunt and find a way to clear his name.
