By Paul Romano - 2/1/2013
Announced last year, Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have confirmed full details for the upcoming anime movie Iron Man: Rise Of Technovore. Arriving on Blu-Ray and DVD April 16th, the film stars Matthew Mercer (Resident Evil: Damnation) as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) as Frank Castle/The Punisher. The other cast members in the flick have yet to be announced. Both the Blu-Ray and DVD contain two behind-the scenes featurettes, "Tale Of Technovore" (which explores the animation, story and adaptation of Marvel characters) and "S.H.I.E.L.D.: Protecting The Marvel Universe" 9which delivers an all-access look and brief history into the organization as portrayed in the comics and adapted in the film). An interactive art gallery featuring conceptual art produced by Madhouse will be released exclusively on the Blu-Ray release. Below is the official synopsis, cover art and trailer for Iron Man: Rise Of Technovore.

Billionaire Tony Stark, in his Iron Man armor, prevents an attack from a mysterious new foe, but innocent bystanders are killed, including his best friend War Machine, Lt. Colonel James Rhodes. Detained for questioning by S.H.I.E.L.D., Iron Man escapes, determined to find the mastermind behind the attack. Pursued by Black Widow and Hawkeye, Iron Man enlists the help of the ruthless vigilante The Punisher. But can the Armored Avenger handle what he finds when he catches the person responsible and is forced to face his deadliest weapon, a biotechnology called Technovore that could wipe out all life on the planet?

hobohaymaker13 - 2/1/2013, 3:29 PM
Norman Reedus voicing The Punisher? Well, while i would have wanted Thomas Jane back to voice him, but i can work with that.
kemuael - 2/1/2013, 3:30 PM

Jollem - 2/1/2013, 3:35 PM

Spidey91 - 2/1/2013, 3:53 PM
now THIS is awesome animation,I hope it does well enough so MARVEL can make more anime-styled animated movies...I'm not too fond of the storytelling in anime,but the animation is awesome.
DEATHbyEXILE - 2/1/2013, 3:53 PM
black widow...
AC1 - 2/1/2013, 3:55 PM
Iron Man's waist... those proportions are almost as bad as Rob Liefeld's!
Lozzy - 2/1/2013, 4:02 PM
is this set in the MCU?
Durf - 2/1/2013, 4:03 PM
hmmm, not a fan of the way the characters look. I will give it a go though
FlixMentallo21 - 2/1/2013, 4:10 PM
Matthew Mercer as Iron Man and Norman Reedus as the Punisher, eh? Never would have guessed those two. Now we just need to know the voices of War Machine, Black Widow, and Hawkeye.
KeefNCookies - 2/1/2013, 4:14 PM
Why does Marvel hate Hawkeye so much? Sick of this MCU-inspiration... PURPLE MASK & ONE SLEEVE OR DEATH I TELL YOU!! xP
KeefNCookies - 2/1/2013, 4:17 PM
Seriously... friggity frick you Marvel.

On another note, glad its not the Iron Man / Hulk animation...

And talk about Iron Man over-saturation (UGH)

Happy to see Punisher! You da man Frank!
danica2334 - 2/1/2013, 4:40 PM
Black Widow kinda reminds me of witchblade ...
CampBlood - 2/1/2013, 4:41 PM
what does iroman look like samus's suit
MarkV - 2/1/2013, 5:00 PM
DC is just crushing the shit out of Marvel animation.
KeefNCookies - 2/1/2013, 5:10 PM
@MarkV
They always have. Always. Though, they havent taken as big of risks and for that, more respect to Marvel for making a movie about Young Thor and "Next Avengers" (though I didnt really like them, kudos for trying). DC has always had superior animation. I swear, these studios should make public polls on what fans want to see. I dont understand how difficult that could be, and it could be so, so beneficial!

Did someone say, dem tits?


wallhead - 2/1/2013, 5:16 PM
@KeefNCookies
Cuz hawkeye can't be taken seriously with that mask on. He looks looney tunes. Mcu version ftw.

Anyway, war machine dies? Lame.
jimoakley666 - 2/1/2013, 5:22 PM
All looks pretty cool except the rather young and scruffy looking Punisher. That's not Frank Castle.
Shamo - 2/1/2013, 5:24 PM
looks amazing.
superherofan21 - 2/1/2013, 6:17 PM
Wait, wait, wait.....
WAR MACHINE DIES?!?! What?! I thought this was set in the MCU! Can someone confirm or deny that?
DrDoom - 2/1/2013, 6:22 PM
@superherofan21

This is NOT Earth-199999.

Also, I find it kind of funny that the movie is called "Rise of Technovore", but the only character seemingly not on the cover is Technovore.
TheAbomination - 2/1/2013, 6:37 PM
Dem tits on Black Widow... ...holy Jesus Christ.
TMW1987ProudProWrestlingFan - 2/1/2013, 7:06 PM
Not particularly a fan of Anime or Japanese artwork in general, I mean I watch Anime's, but I still can't get used to the Eyes or some Faces in Japanese animation.

Tony, Rhodey & Fury all look alright facially, But Black Widow, Hawkeye & Punisher all look terrible.

Punisher looks absolutely awesome from the Chest down, but that Head & Face is just horrific! Just doesn't scream Frank Castle or Punisher to me. Shame because I like the fact he's getting voiced by Norman Reedus in this.

The Japanese style / look just doesn't suit American charcaters / franchises.
mgeoff88 - 2/1/2013, 8:48 PM
One of big my pet peeves about anime is the way women are illustrated.

They have huge boobs, but no ass. I mean, really? No love for the derriere?



Anime illustrators need to look to Mass Effect for inspiration on this subject.
Drewbee87 - 2/1/2013, 9:04 PM
Ugh, I hate anime style. Even more when it's paired with Marvel & DC comics.
CrashTest - 2/1/2013, 10:03 PM
hawkeye and Punisher look like shit. I have yet to see a good Anime Marvel style.
Jediknyte - 2/1/2013, 10:34 PM
