posted on by Egan Loo
The first episode of Madhouse's Iron Man anime series will have its world premiere at Comic-Con International, which will run in San Diego from July 22 to July 25. The Animax anime television channel has also announced that the anime will then hold its television premiere on Animax in Japan on Friday, October 1 at 10:00 p.m. Marvel Entertainment had previously stated that the 12-episode series would premiere during the second quarter (April-June) of the year. Marvel Anime: Iron Man and Marvel Anime: Wolverine were slated to air in the United States next year.
Marvel Entertainment had revealed in August of 2008 that it was working with Madhouse on four series with Marvel's stable of comic book characters. (The other two projects will center on Blade and X-Men.) Masao Maruyama, the co-founder of Madhouse, offered a video preview of its Iron Man and Wolverine work at Comic-Con International last July.
