There’s a new trailer out for Marvel’s Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, the direct-to-video Marvel Anime adaptation. Written by Brandon Auman and directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki this animated movie brings Matthew Mercer as the voice of Tony Stark and Walking Dead fan favorite Norman Reedus as the voice of the Punisher.
Billionaire Tony Stark, in his Iron Man armor, prevents an attack from a mysterious new foe, but innocent bystanders are killed, including his best friend War Machine, Lt. Colonel James Rhodes. Detained for questioning by S.H.I.E.L.D., Iron Man escapes, determined to find the mastermind behind the attack. Pursued by Black Widow and Hawkeye, Iron Man enlists the help of the ruthless vigilante The Punisher. But can the Armored Avenger handle what he finds when he catches the person responsible and is forced to face his deadliest weapon, a biotechnology called Technovore that could wipe out all life on the planet?
Here’s the new trailer:
This is the first trailer released earlier this year.
Why neither trailer has any character voices is a mystery to me. I was excited to hear Norman’s take on the Punisher’s tone and voice and disappointed that we didn’t even get a taste of it in either trailer. Will you be pulling out your wallet to check this out in April?
The DVD/Blu-ray will be released on April 16th, 2013.
