Marvel Entertainment is busy helping to support the release of Marvel Studios' Iron Man 3 in May 2013. Last week Marvel revealed a new direct-to-video animation movie being released called, "Iron Man and Hulk: Heroes United" for April 2013. Now they have announced another animated featured for April but this one is anime-style.

Following the Iron Man Anime series last year is a new full-length anime feature movie titled, "Iron Man: Rise of Technovore."

Here's Marvel's press release:

"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 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."

And here's what the anime movie's producer said:

"Marvel is excited to present an all-new Iron Man adventure featuring the high-tech adrenaline he is known for, in the beautifully rendered anime style of our friends at Madhouse," said producer Megan Thomas Bradner. "We’ll get to see familiar Marvel Super Heroes such as War Machine, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Hawkeye and The Punisher, rendered in anime style for the first time. It’s a can’t miss for any Marvel fan."

War Machine? Hawkeye? The Punisher? Yes please!

Sounds like a full slate of Iron Man-everything for fans of the Armored Avenger next year.
