Marvel Animation Studios To Release IRON MAN & HULK: HEROES UNITED Feature Next Year
It isn't a follow-up to the events of Marvel's The Avengers (although it reportedly can be interpreted that way), but a new feature length animated film called Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United will be released next year as the duo battle it out with Zzzax! Read on for details and images.
Set to be released on home video on April 23rd, 2013, Marvel Animation Studios' debut feature will be Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United. According to Entertainment Weekly, the film will "team Tony Stark and Bruce Banner in a fight against the villain Zzzax, a creature formed out of pure energy who can absorb human minds." Featuring a mixture of hand drawn art and computer generated animation, it seems to be a similar style to MTV's Spider-Man series from a while back. Although it's not being billed as a follow-up to the events of Marvel's The Avengers, Jeph Loeb tells the site that fans are "welcome people to interpret any way they like. In tone and character, we want to follow our best leader."
Adrian Pasdar (Heroes) will voice Iron Man and Fred Tatasciore (Ultimate Spider-Man) voices Bruce Banner/Hulk. Zzzax will be voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, best known as Klaus on American Dad. "The challenge was to pick up the banter between the two of them. Certainly, Adrian Pasdar’s performance is inspired by what Robert Downey Jr. does, and Mark laid down such an incredible path for us to be able to follow," adds Loeb. As for the future animated features, it appears as if DC will finally have some competition in that department! "It’s our hope that we will start doing more feature-length direct to Blu-ray and DVD stories. They’ll more than likely be in team-up situations. We find it works really well when we have big exciting adventures with two or more of our heroes."
