Marvel released a second trailer for Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, its upcoming direct-to-video feature with Japanese animation studio MADHOUSE. Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore will be released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on April 16.
Marvel describes the film as 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 manhunt and find a way to clear his name.
The Blu-ray Disc will feature an interactive art gallery with conceptual art produced by Madhouse as well as two behind-the-scenes featurettes: “Tale of Technovore,” explores the animation, story and the adaptation of Marvel characters for the anime and “S.H.I.E.L.D.: Protecting the Marvel Universe” allows viewers an all-access look and brief history into the organization as portrayed in the comics and adapted in the film.
Hiroshi Hamasaki (Shigurui: Death Frenzy, Steins;Gate, Texhnolyze) directed the film with story by Brandon Auman (The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Iron Man: Armored Adventures). 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 last year.
