Marvel Anime: Iron Man & Wolverine

From Warren Ellis:

This is the test animation for the IRON MAN anime series I’m writing, produced for the south east Asian market. Note test animation: it’s intended to show off the style of the piece only. Nothing in here reflects the actual content, just the design and the aesthetic and the animation. The only character in this piece that is in the actual series is Iron Man himself, okay?

Marvel Anime is a collaboration with Madhouse (Trigun, Chobits, Claymore) and written by Warren Ellis.

Watch the Marvel Anime Iron Man teaser trailer here. It’s pretty sweet, but the Japanese are the originals at mecha-lovin’, so the old tin can gets the treatment he deserves.

There’s another one for Wolverine, but I’m not a fan of his mullet and the fighting style is way off base; I’m still interested in seeing how it develops, though. Ah well, the writing should be good enough, I suppose.

  1. Iron Man ended up looking very little like this trailer.

    It was an interesting first season. Decent quality animation but some nonsensical enemies.

    Here is our take with a lot of pics and a little humor if your are interested:
