They've got live-action movies in theaters and animated series on TV, and Marvel's now moving into the world of direct-to-home video animation with Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United.
The feature — out on April 23 — combines traditional and computer-generated animation, with long-time Hulk villain Zzzax serving as antagonist for the piece.
"We see his origin in the movie. It’s what would happen if the entire Eastern seaboard [electrical grid] went out," Jeph Loeb, executive VP of Marvel TV, told Entertainment Weekly. "The two heroes meet up, thinking of each other as to blame."
Heroes United is said to not be a "direct sequel" to this past summer's Avengers film, but Loeb is quoted as saying that it'll be similar in "tone and character." Adrian Pasdar, who has voiced Iron Man in multiple animated projects, returns to the role; voice actor Dee Bradley Baker will play the Hulk.
In the Entertainment Weekly article, Loeb said Marvel will likely produce further direct-to-DVD/Blu-ray animated features, most likely team-up stories.Got a comment? There's lots of conversation on Newsarama's FACEBOOK and TWITTER!
