New info on the DVD/Blu-ray release of Marvel’s next anime project has been revealed today. Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore will be released on April 16 and feature the voice talents of Matthew Mercer as Iron Man and The Walking Dead’s own Norman Reedus as The Punisher.
The box art and official synopsis were revealed by IGN. The special features are on both the DVD and Blu-ray, but the latter will have an exclusive interactive art gallery from Madhouse. Both versions will have two featurettes: “Tale of Technovore” which talks about the anime adaption process and “S.H.I.E.L.D.: Protecting the Marvel Universe” which will look at the history of the organization. Marvel’s anime adaptations have been pretty good, and this is there first attempt at a full-length standalone anime movie. Norman Reedus as Frank Castle is an interesting choice as is the plot point of killing Rhodey. We’ll have to keep an eye out for this one in April.
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?
