The anime version of Iron Man is set to debut in a 12-episode series in Japan in the spring of 2010. According to Madhouse President and CEO Jungo Murata, Marvel is giving the anime studio behind Death Note, Paprika, and Vampire Hunter D free reign to re-imagine the Marvel superheroes for Japanese audiences.
