Marvel And Madhouse Announce Anime Adaptations of Wolverine And Ironman

How cool is that, they are making Anime versions of Wolverine and Ironman. I honestly think that Anime is a lot more complex and artist then all kinds of western animation and now so does Marvel. And based on the previews in the youtube trailers I think they look pretty damn good. They have added a much needed darker appeal to these characters and it will be released in spring of 2010. Looks like Madhouse did an amazing job with these anime adaptations just based on the trailers of Ironman and Wolverine, I really can’t wait to see this.

Ironman. The dogfights look amazing and as expected from Madhouse the animation quality is top notch. Ironman himself though… I can see how they wanted him to look more like a shiny mecha but all I can think about is that someone took an Ironman sketch and applied the Plastic Wrap effect in Photoshop to it. The villian though, that’s a whole other story! He’s part Captain Harlock, part The Major from Hellsing and all kinds of awesome.

Wolverine really hit close to home. I’ve never been a Wolverine fan but this reimagining of the character as a Japanese badass is an instant hit. The mood is a lot grittier and thicker than the american version and will remind you a lot of classic samurai anime films, specially Ninja Scroll.
