Marvel heroes, anime-style

Regrettably I lost my taste for anime some four years ago (the last series I really enjoyed being Medabots.) Well, it had to happen sometime. Every now and then, though, I take a peek at what's going on, if only for the design aesthetic. Like now, for instance: apparently there are two new offerings from Marvel which re-envision their iconic heroes in anime style.

First we have Iron Man.

I like this interpretation. It radiates an intense and insane dynamic I normally wouldn't have associated with Iron Man. The enemy looks quite formidable, too.

Then here's Wolverine.

Unfortunately, this doesn't quite do it for me. It's just wrong on so many levels. I don't know if it's the mullet or womanly hands or what. It's just wrong wrong wrong.

In any case, both movies come out next year.
