In 2010, Marvel Anime: Iron Man hit television screens. The 12-episode series, from Japanese production house, Madhouse Studios, focused on the adventures of Iron Man, and is fight against a mysterious organisation known as Zodiac.
Marvel Anime: Iron Man was the first in a series of Marvel Anime shows, all focusing on iconic heroes, but how many Marvel Anime shows are there? In this post, I provide all the details.
The Marvel anime TV shows
Between 2010 and 2011, Madhouse Studios produced four shows under the ‘Marvel Anime’ banner. Each of these shows ran for a total of 12 episodes and included:
- Iron Man (2010)
- Wolverine (2011)
- X-Men (2011)
- Blade (2011)
In addition to the four television shows, Madhouse Studios also produced two spin-off movies. The movies are as follows:
- Iron Man: Rise of the Technovore (2013)
- Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and Punisher (2014)
Are the shows/movies part of the same series?
All of the shows and movies under the ‘Marvel Anime’ banner are part of the same universe. Each entry largely focuses on a specific, unrelated story; however, Wolverine appears across all four of the television shows to create a link.
Who are the cast of the ‘Marvel Anime’ shows/movies?
The English language cast of the ‘Marvel Anime’ shows/movies, includes Milo Ventimiglia, Jean-Benoît Blanc, Scott Porter, Adrian Pasdar, Laura Bailey, Travis Willingham, Cam Clarke, Danielle Nicolet, Fred Tatasciore, Stephanie Sheh, Ali Hillis, Harold Perrineau, Troy Baker, Matthew Mercer, Liam O’Brien, and Norman Reedus.
