Back in April, Marvel announced that former "Heroes" stars Adrian Pasdar and Milo Ventimiglia had signed on to provide the voices of Iron Man and Wolverine when their respective Anime series make their American debut on G4. And earlier this month, G4 finally revealed that both shows will begin airing back-to-back on Friday nights starting on July 29.
For those of you who were wondering how Pasdar and Ventimiglia will sound as two of Marvel's iconic heroes, G4 has released a clip from the Iron Man Anime series in which Tony Stark (Pasdar) narrowly survives an attempt on his life thanks to the intervention of Wolverine (Ventimiglia).
The Iron Man and Wolverine Anime series were crafted by Warren Ellis and produced by the Japanese animation studio, Madhouse. Both shows will run for 12 half hour episodes during the summer. Later this year, G4 will air two more Marvel Anime series: X-Men and Blade.
G4 has previously released the synopsis for both series:
In an effort to make amends for his past in weapons manufacturing, Tony Stark has dedicated himself to building the world up rather than tearing it down. Traveling to Japan to build a new arc reactor that will deliver unlimited free energy to the Japanese people, Stark is challenged by the Japanese government and the media when he attempts to import the necessary nuclear priming device. When the nuclear reactor is repeatedly attacked by the mysterious Zodiac consortium, Stark must gather his allies to take on Zodiac and its mastermind.
Based on the popular graphic novel by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, the series begins when Mariko, the love of Logan’s life, is forced back to Japan by her crime-lord father, Shingen. Logan vows to get her back at any cost. He is plunged into a chaotic world of corruption and violence, forcing him to team up with young assassin, Yukio, to battle their way through the Japanese criminal underworld.
