On Saturday, Marvel began streaming the trailer for Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, its new direct-to-video feature with Japanese animation Studio Madhouse:

Marvel describes the film:

The film explores a confrontation between Iron Man and the villainous Ezekiel Stane, who develops new bio-technology that seemingly outclasses the Iron Man armor. After Stane unleashes a terrorist attack and sets Tony up to take the fall, Iron Man must evade S.H.I.E.L.D.'s man hunt and find a way to clear his name.

Hiroshi Hamasaki (Shigurui: Death Frenzy, Steins;Gate, Texhnolyze) is directing the film with story by Brandon Auman (The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Iron Man: Armored Adventures). Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan will release the film on DVD next spring.

Marvel and Madhouse previously teamed up to create the Iron Man, Wolverine, X-Men, and Blade television anime series. All four series aired on the G4 television channel in the United States, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released all four series on DVD in North America earlier this year.
