When you hear the word “anime” you think big eyes, big mouths, big emotion, big everything! Okay, not everything is literally big, but the anime style definitely loves to accentuate things. It’s what makes it stand out among other animation styles. With that in mind, it’s time to get excited because Marvel is teaming up with their friends in Japan to create a brand new anime featuring The Avengers which will be called Marvel Future Avengers.
Now before you start casting your doubts, just take a look at this:
This was an X-Men anime series which debuted in 2011. This also isn’t the first time that Marvel has produced an anime with their superheroes. Wolverine, Iron Man, and Blade each got their own anime series which aired in Japan between 2010 and 2011. However, those series took on a more serious tone. This new anime will be geared towards a more younger audience. According to the report, this new endeavor will feature empowered kids who will basically be paired with or mentored by a member of the Avengers. Here’s a preview image from the proposed series.
The Hulk looks like he’s about to go Super Saiyan. Other than that, everything else looks good. As you can see, the series will feature most of the core members and Wasp. As of right now, there is no word as to what kind of powers the kids will have. Additionally, there is no word if other members of the Avengers will show up, but it’s assumed that they will at some point. The show will also be turned into a manga which will be written and drawn by Teruaki Mizuno. It will appear in April’s issue of Shogakukan’s Bessatsu Coro Coro Comics Special. Here’s a preview image from that as well.
It looks like Marvel is really capitalizing on it’s global success by expanding into other territories. And it makes complete sense. Why wouldn’t you make such a move? It would be silly to just sit on your hands and not take advantage of this kind of situation. While it’s already been said that the manga will come out this April, there is no time table for the anime.
