Last year, Marvel announced plans to release their first direct-to-video CG film Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United in 2013. An April debut for the feature, which teams up two of Marvel's most iconic characters, was previously set. However, Disney has now confirmed that the movie will instead be released on December 3rd, 2013. Additionally, the running time is 72 minutes. Written by Henry Gilroy and Brandon Auman, Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United stars Adrian Pasdar as Iron Man and Fred Tatasciore as Hulk. You can pre-order your copy by clicking HERE. Below is a plot summary and trailer for the feature:

In the film, the Invincible Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk join forces to save the Earth from its greatest threat yet. When two Hydra scientists try to supercharge a Stark Arc Reactor with Hulk’s Gamma Energy, they unleash a being of pure electricity called Zzzax — and he’s hungry for destruction. Together, Iron Man and Hulk are the only force that stands in the way of the Zzzax’s planetary blackout. But first the super heroic duo will have to get through snarling Wendigos, deadly robots and the scaly powerhouse, Abomination. Can two of Marvel’s mightiest heroes find a way to work together without smashing each other before time runs out?

looks like shit.. pass
Stumblin - 2/21/2013, 9:14 AM
Wow...this is crappy.

Why does Iron Man's voice sound like an 16 year old kid?
Shamo - 2/21/2013, 9:14 AM
marvel has a few good ones: Planet Hulk, Hulk Vs, uhhh.... Ultimate Avengers, hmmm... uhhhh..... guess thats it??

You would think with all the money marvel made they could finally put out a decent animated film.
Godzillafart - 2/21/2013, 9:17 AM
Not really diggin' the look or sound of this.
Godzillafart - 2/21/2013, 9:17 AM
Although they have some shit balls like All Star Superman, for the most part, DC kicks Marvel's ass in animation.
DCjohnny - 2/21/2013, 9:18 AM
yeah its true marvel animated universe sucks .... dc is way ahead of it ...
jessepostal - 2/21/2013, 9:31 AM
Marvel makes their animated movies for kids/teens, dc makes theirs for the odd crowd, the matures if you will.

This looks horrendou. Disney need to bring that Paperman flair to a marvel property. I thought we'd get batter than ultimate spiderman through this ownership from Disney. I'm hoping someone will see the worth in a cnematic animated Marvel feature.
DCjohnny - 2/21/2013, 9:35 AM
yeah ... would love to see daredevil movie and deadpool movie
StreetProdigy - 2/21/2013, 9:58 AM
Looks like crap made for 10 year olds. Ill stick with DC animated movies
Fogs - 2/21/2013, 10:02 AM
DC still owns in animation, as some folks said.
TheAbomination - 2/21/2013, 10:03 AM
They can push the release date back to December 3rd, 2020 and I still wouldn't give a f*uck.
AraxisHT - 2/21/2013, 10:07 AM
It looked good until I started the trailer.
JoeMomma29 - 2/21/2013, 10:42 AM
Yup Gusto knows bad hair days!

thewolfx - 2/21/2013, 10:44 AM
Oh my somebody said planet hulk was marvels best animated film


[frick] is wrong with you?
FrostyVoice - 2/21/2013, 10:56 AM
umm...no.
superherofan21 - 2/21/2013, 11:30 AM
I'm surprised that Marvel hasn't thought to do an animated Spider-Man feature yet. I mean, there are so many stories they could adapt with him... Why haven't they done it yet?
missalexis - 2/21/2013, 12:05 PM
I thought Planet Hulk was decent... nowhere near as good as the book though.
SUPERSHADOWBAT - 2/21/2013, 12:30 PM
Sharp Gusto, sharp. Lol
SUPERSHADOWBAT - 2/21/2013, 12:32 PM
I actually enjoy the Marvel Knights dvds more than their animated features.
Demonluv - 2/21/2013, 1:05 PM
Looks astoundingly bad. Like...offensively bad.
unknownfacts - 2/21/2013, 1:34 PM
It might be good for a laugh.Marvel stick with live action leave the animation to DC.
riseofloganX36 - 2/21/2013, 1:36 PM
i like it looks good to me. Hulk looks like the way he did in avengers.

Anything iron man and hulk i'll get. And the resident evil cgi movies look like the video games also so i gusse you people hate those movies as well.

UNTIL next time TRUE BELIEVERS!
riseofloganX36 - 2/21/2013, 1:40 PM
@unknownfacts Yeah ok cause teen tiitans is such a great show and animation is good. And the green lanturn cgi show looks just like a video game also.

It looks like you people are more dc fans than marvel.

UNTIL next time TRUE BELIEVERS!

@ Shamo

Dr. Strange was actually a solid animated offering by Marvel (I certainly enjoyed it more than the watered down take on Ultimates with the two Ultimate Avengers DVDs- and by extension, Next Avengers). But yeah, Hulk Vs. and Planet Hulk are the two best Marvel offerings I can think of. Invincible Iron Man really didn't do it for me and neither did the Ultimate Avengers movies.

But seriously, Marvel needs to branch out at least as much as they do with the Marvel Knights label. Iron Man: Extremis, Black Panther, Spider-Woman: Agent of Sword and Astonishing X-Men were actually a lot of fun given that they're motion comics. Heroes For Hire, Daredevil, and maybe even another Blade or X-Men take beyond the solid animes from last year would be good.

They've got a great character stable to work from. I know they don't want to throw away money on product that won't move, oversaturate the market with already known characters or water down those character offerings, but it's not like Invincible Iron Man had any negative impact on the Iron Man film.

I guess they figure their TV and big screen content is where the action is, as the only thing they've got brewing of not is another Marvel Knights motion comic featuring The Inhumans. But I'm looking forward to that regardless.

Shamo - 2/21/2013, 2:51 PM
@terminal, Strange wasn't bad but it was it forgetabble imo. i liked the Ultimate Avengers movie though, that last fight scene between Hulk and the Avengers was pretty damn cool. but with that said, i wouldnt say it was on the level of Hulks 2 films.

as for the Motion Comics; i havent seen any of them. i dont like the idea of motion comics to begin with. i dont see why they dont simply fully animate those stories instead of turning them into motion comics. i suppose its cheaper? but DC seems to generate enough revenue with their DC animated films so i dont see why Marvel doesn't simply follow suit and animate their best stories without watering them down like they did with Ultimate Avengers.

unknownfacts - 2/21/2013, 4:41 PM
Got to hand it to Marvel they know how to market their characters,the poster boy of Marvel Cinematic Universe Ironman and the breakaway star of Avengers well besides Loki.20 years ago and this project would have been laughed out the door.Aleast post Avengers they're willing to try anything.
TheSuperguy - 2/21/2013, 9:48 PM
Hoping this will break Marvel's streak of crap DTV movies.
Darriann - 2/21/2013, 9:48 PM
Looks more like more like bad shade cell animation than cgi to me.
Al - 2/22/2013, 12:44 AM
I agree with @nomis! They should really go with the same animation from the Spidey/Hulk/Iron Man team up short from a few years ago!! That'd rock! And that style totally fits right in with what Disney is capable of! And on top of having that top notch style of animation, they could actually make a feature length animated film featuring not only the characters from the MCU, but the rest as well, including the Fantastic Four, Spidey and the others! I hope they consider doing something like that one day soon!
kemuael - 2/22/2013, 12:56 AM
not liking iron man voice in this feature, but i see it on dvd then ill troll and not before

Basically it seems like Marvel is stronger on the silver screen while DC is mostly stronger on animated features...
