Marvel Animation To Create Avengers Sequel

Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United

Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United

Mar­vel Ani­ma­tion is team­ing the big green guy with Tony Stark in an all new fea­ture film. Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United is a direct-to-video ani­mated film that will team the two up to bat­tle the energy crea­ture Zzzax.

The two ride off together at the end of the hit film The Avengers, prompt­ing some to spec­u­late as to a team­ing of Iron Man and The Hulk. This ani­mated film seems to be that team­ing, albeit not offi­cially. There are at least two more films in the live-action series of The Avengers.

In Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United, Zzzax’s ori­gin is explored. He wrecks havoc on the east coast of the United States. Hulk and Iron Man ini­tially think the other is to blame, but team up to fight Zzzax when they real­ize their mistake.

Adrian Pas­dar will voice Tony Stark/Iron Man and Fred ­Tatas­ciore reprises his role as Bruce Banner/The Hulk. Vet­eran voice actor Dee Bradley Baker takes on the energy crea­ture Zzzax.

Pro­duced in a hybrid of com­puter gen­er­ated and hand-made art, the film has a whole new style for Mar­vel Ani­ma­tion. Below are a cou­ple early pro­mo­tional images Mar­vel released to Enter­tain­ment Weekly show­ing the new char­ac­ter designs.

The Legend of Mor’du Short Announced For Brave Blu-Ray

The Legend of Mor'du

The Leg­end of Mor’du

With Disney’s announce­ment for a Novem­ber 13, 2012 Blu-ray release of the Pixar hit Brave, also comes the news of a new short based in the new Brave world. Extras on the release will include a new short called, The Leg­end of Mor’du as well as 2001’s the­atri­cally released La Luna (which was shown before Brave in it’s the­atri­cal release).

Based in the mag­i­cal Scot­land of Brave, The Leg­end of Mor’du will give fans the chance to delve deeper into the leg­end behind Mordu, as told by the eccen­tric witch who trans­formed him. Mor’du, as you may remem­ber, was a prince who was trans­formed into a bear. Mor’du appeared in the film as a mon­strous, 15 feet tall black bear with huge claws, a mis­aligned jaw, and long, sharp teeth, his body cov­ered in scars and bro­ken weapons and arrows. King Fer­gus lost his leg in a bat­tle against this bear while pro­tect­ing his wife and daughter.

Other extras on the newly announced Blu-ray pack­age include:

  • La Luna” The­atri­cal Short – Fans will love this charm­ing short that accom­pa­nied the film in the­aters. It fol­lows a young boy on his first night work­ing the fam­ily busi­ness along­side his father and grandfather.

  • Merida & Eli­nor – With the cre­ation of Merida and Eli­nor, the Pixar film­mak­ers delved deep into the rela­tion­ship between mother and daugh­ter.

  • Bears – Take a look inside the art and design behind the bears in “Brave.” Each of the bears, gen­tle Mum-Bear and ter­ri­fy­ing Mor’du, demanded a dif­fer­ent approach to cre­at­ing their phys­i­cal appear­ance and personality.
  • Brawl in the Hall – A fas­ci­nat­ing and hilar­i­ous inside look at the process of cre­at­ing “Brave’s” fight­ing Scots, through ani­ma­tion, crowd sim­u­la­tion and fight chore­og­ra­phy – not to men­tion a room full of grunt­ing men whose vocal chor­tles added authen­tic­ity to the rau­cous scene.
  • Won­der Moss – Fans will explore how “Brave’s” tech­ni­cal artists exam­ined the real Scot­tish coun­try­side and stud­ied the laws of nature, then turned the­sefind­ings into com­puter codes that would blan­ket Merida’s Scot­land in lush moss, lichen and bracken.

  • Extended Scenes – Three sep­a­rate scenes are high­lighted in their extended form. Direc­tor Mark Andrews dis­cusses the deci­sion mak­ing process that led to the short­ened ver­sions of these scenes.
  • Fer­gus & Mor’du” An Alter­nate Open­ing – Once upon a time, “Brave” had a dif­fer­ent open­ing scene. Even­tu­ally cut from the film, fans can see it in its entirety in this bonus fea­ture nar­rated by the film’s direc­tor Mark Andrews.
