The latest anime based on the Marvel Universe has been dated for April 16th, just in time to get you all hepped up over “Iron Man 3.”
We’ve got the disc details, cover art, and stills from the feature after the jump.
The upcoming film, from “Ninja Scroll” studio Madhouse, stars Matthew Mercer (“Resident Evil Damnation”) as Iron Man and Norman Reedus (“The Walking Dead”) as the Punisher in a story that will have Tony Stark on the run, accused of committing an act of terrorism.
From the official synopsis:
Billionaire Tony Stark, in his Iron Man armor, prevents an attack from a mysterious new foe, but innocent bystanders are killed, including his best friend War Machine, Lt. Colonel
James Rhodes. Detained for questioning by S.H.I.E.L.D., Iron Man escapes, determined to find the mastermind behind the attack. Pursued by Black Widow and Hawkeye, Iron Man enlists the help of the ruthless vigilante The Punisher. But can the Armored Avenger handle what he finds when he catches the person responsible and is forced to face his deadliest weapon, a biotechnology called Technovore that could wipe out all life on the planet?
