You know, if you get rid of Punisher, that's almost identically the cast of the 90's Iron Man cartoon's second season. The only difference was that they replaced Pepper with Spider-Woman, who was basically written as Pepper with superpowers anyway.

Ah, the 90s Iron Man. I saw it recently, and it did not age well.

I would like ALL Marvel comics characters to be turned into anime at some point. Why? Why not? Avengers was a big broadening of the fanbase, and Marvel's making more money off of the licensed material than the comics.

The first season is unwatchable. The second is actually pretty good.

But I wouldn't be adverse to seeing more adaptations if they have some quality. Which outside of X-Men's anime, they didn't really have.

Even better would be to have comic book writers write these.



This a thousand times. An Iron Manime written by Matt Fraction would gatlike

That would just make it an outsourced American cartoon like Spider-Man the Animated Series or Thundercats then, not anime. I'd rather have an actual anime than just an American cartoon animated in Japan.

Writers names from the Marvel books are all over these 4 anime, and some of you didn't like them all that much.

Yeah, I'd honestly just prefer the Japanese have absolute control on the projects.

I'd rather have people on the projects who actually know the characters. Didn't like the Marvel anime at all. The characters didn't feel right.

Wow! Really? I've only heard bad from Marvel's Japanese cartoon adaption (from both fans of comics and Japanese media) but a movie spin-off staring many other characters from the Marvel universe? Wow, colour me impressed.

Still, I wish Madhouse would pick a character better suited to Japanese media like Spider-Man or Deadpool. That said, this movie could hold up some good future possibilities...

looks at Trigun movie

...never mind. Still hope this turns out good.

Oh god, not more of these garbage again. Rolling Eyes

Were those anime really successful enough to warrant a movie?!

This project reeks of bad decision after bad decision. Iron Man was a mediocre start, then it went downhill with Wolverine, barely surpassed Iron Man with X-Men, and then hit the bottom of the barrel with Blade being the absolute worst. You would think that Spiderman would have been one of the series they'd choose to animate, not Blade.


MadHouse has such talented artists. Why waste them on this?

You mean like the last Marvel 'anime'?

I think that was the problem.


Um, no Warren Ellis wasn't responsible for the scripts for any of those.. Just some initial outlines.


How much do you wanna bet he only made that announcement after he saw how terrible it was just to distance himself from his own work?


PS - I never keep up with sales and numbers. But how did the 4 Marvel animes even do in terms of sale? It couldn't have done well.

The problem was the adaptation. It takes a special kind of bad to make good Frank Miller unwatchable, but padding it did the trick.

To be fair....a majority of Frank Miller's non-comic book works were pretty awful.

His works just don't translate well into any medium beyond comics. I guess that's why he always looks so negative in public.


edit: Wait, there is a distinct possibility that I mixed him up with Alan Moore. Which one is which again?

Name more than two.

Jeph Loeb is a joke in the comics fandom and it's already been stated more than once in this thread that Warren Ellis got little creative control over it.

I said Good Frank Miller. It's widely accepted the man went nuts after The Dark Knight Strikes again came out.
