In an exclusive article from EW, Jeph Loeb announced a new Marvel animated movie hitting shelves next year. The Feature is titled “Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United” and will feature the armored avenger and the green goliath as they battle Zzaxxx, the pure energy creature.
From the article: “We see his origin in the movie. It’s what would happen if the entire Eastern seaboard [electrical grid] went out,” says Jeph Loeb, executive VP of Marvel’s TV division, which is overseeing the movie. “The two heroes meet up, thinking of each other as to blame.”
What happens next? “Calamity ensues,” Loeb says.
While the animated Heroes United isn’t a direct sequel to The Avengers, “we welcome people to interpret any way they like,” says Loeb. “In tone and character, we want to follow our best leader.”
Loeb then confirmed the voice actors for two heores. Adrian Pasdar (iron-man anime, Ultimate Spider-man, heroes) will be voicing Tony stark/Iron-man, while Fred Tatasciore will lend his voice to the indestructible Hulk. Loeb also hinted that there are more Direct to videos movies in the making: “It’s our hope that we will start doing more feature-length direct to Blu-ray and DVD stories,” he says. “They’ll more than likely be in team-up situations. We find it works really well when we have big exciting adventures with two or more of our heroes.”
After the Agent X rumors we received a while back, that Marvel was working on new DTV, we expected more animated movies and really did not see a CGI team up feature coming. Hopefully the writing is good and it is targeting more than just young kids (i am looking at you Ultimate Spider-man!)
