Marvel – anime style

An announcement was made at the 2009 San Diego Comic Con that animation studio Madhouse (Tokyo Godfathers) will be adapting several Marvel Comics properties into anime-style versions. Working with cult comics icon Warren Ellis, Madhouse will revise the properties that fans have known for decades through a different vision, creating a brand new version of the successful characters.
