posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Marvel announced on Monday that it is creating a new television anime series titled Marvel Future Avengers. The new series will air on the BS (broadcast satellite) channel Dlife this summer, and will be intended for a young male audience.
The anime will follow Makoto, a young boy who gains superpowers due to an evil gene manipulation experiment. Makoto and other youths join the Avengers as apprentices named "Future Avengers." The anime will show Makoto and others as they train, fight villains and grow, under Avengers members Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and Wasp.
Additionally, Teruaki Mizuno (Kyōryū Taisen Dinobout, Metallica Metalluca) is drawing a manga version that will debut in Shogakukan's Bessatsu Coro Coro Comics Special magazine's April issue, which ships on Tuesday.
Marvel previously teamed up with Madhouse 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 in 2012.
Marvel and Madhouse also created the Iron Man: Rise of Technovore film in 2013, and the Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher film in 2014.
Marvel and Toei Animation most recently collaborated on the Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers television anime series, which premiered in Japan in April 2014.
Toei also collaborated with Marvel on the 1978-79 live-action special-effects (tokusatsu) version of Spider-Man. Kodansha published Ryoichi Ikegami's manga re-imagining of Spider-Man in Monthly Shonen Magazine, while Marvel itself created the Mangaverse comic project.
