Marvel Does Some Anime

Remember when they had the Matrix sequels and they did an animated Matrix thing? This kind of reminds of that, but that’s not to say it looks bad or anything, it just reminds me of it. I’m not crazy about the Wolverine reinterpretation, but Iron Man looks pretty slick.

  1. Yes, the wolverine one looks just…wrong. I think Marvel just needs to bring things in line with their comic universe or just make new characters. I like the one shots otherworlds type thing but prefer that to be a comic. I want them to throw money at making anime about the characters I know of.

  2. That is not Wolverine, it looks more along the lines of Vega from Streetfighter. Why would they make Iron Man exactly from the Comic books but change Wolverine completely? It doesn’t make sense.

  3. I think the idea is that it’s a particularly Asian spin on the characters. Wolvering is more of a mythological character, from what I can tell. And Iron Man seems unchanged, but he’s in Japan in the clip (flies past Tokyo tower), and there could have been other changes made.

    That’s just my take, though. My problem with Wolverine stems more from a divergence between what the east and west find to be cool. Wolverine looks like he should be in a hair metal band from the 80s.
