According to Marvel News, Madhouse Studios will be working with Marvel Entertainment to animate a new direct-to-video movie titled Iron Man: Rise of Technovore. The film is set to be released on DVD in Spring 2013. It will be directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki and the story written by Brandon Auman.

Movie synopsis:
"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 Stark 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."

Wtf Madhouse. Make some more real Anime and not this :X S2 of Nobuna gogogo

Don't blame it on them, blame on MARVEL fir being cash-grabbing whores.

Looks like MARVEL wants to waste more of MADHOUSE'S talent to cash-grab the anime audience again. Speaking of that trailer, that specific Iron Man trailer was gonna be a movie instead of a series but it was cancelled and MARVEL forced the to make a series about it in 4 weeks (like making 4 adaptations and rushing it into the TV market instead of MARVEL helping and consulting the creators to make the shows more interesting and enjoyable to watch). This movie does not look anything different in the least and will be shittier like a crappy fan-service show.

Why not Wolverine, X-Men or Blade, the ones that were actually kinda good...

I enjoyed the anime so I am looking forward to this. Personally I would like another Wolverine anime,there are plenty of stories they can do.Ghost Rider would make awesome especially if they used Sam Keith's drawing style,his drawing style would be compatible with some of the animation styles of Madhouse.

I wouldn't say that the Iron Man anime series "sucked". I'm more inclined to call it ridiculously generic, which is arguably worse.
Yeah it was pretty much your average superhero cartoon. One of the most average I've seen, definitely. I still enjoyed it a ton though~

Anywayz, WAR MACHINE. Awesome! His suit seems bigger than usual.

Because the first anime was a massive and critical success?

More Tony Stark is always good.
