From Marvel Animation Studios, Sneak Peek new images from the debut feature "Iron Man" & Hulk: Heroes United", teaming 'Tony Stark' with 'Bruce Banner' in a fight against the villain 'Zzzax', a creature of pure energy that can absorb human minds.
To be released April 23, 2013, the film will be a hybrid of CG animation and hand-drawn illustrations, starring voice actor Adrian Pasdar ("Heroes") as 'Iron Man', Fred Tatasciore as 'The Hulk' and Dee Bradley Baker ("American Dad") as 'Zzzax'.
Iron Man was created by writer-editor Stan Lee, developed by scripter Larry Lieber and designed by illustrators Don Heck and Jack Kirby, first appearing in Marvel Comics' "Tales of Suspense" #39 (March 1963). A billionaire playboy, industrialist and ingenious engineer, 'Tony Stark' suffers a severe chest injury during a kidnapping in which his captors attempt to force him to build a weapon of mass destruction. Stark instead creates a powered suit of armor to save his life and escape captivity. Through his corporation, 'Stark Industries', Stark has created many military weapons, some of which, along with other technological devices of his making, have been integrated into his suit, helping him fight crime and terrorism as 'Iron Man'.
The Hulk, created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Jack Kirby, first appeared in "The Incredible Hulk" #1 (May 1962), as a gigantic, green, irradiated, mutated humanoid monster with incredible strength and an inability to control his rage. He is the emotional and impulsive alter ego of the withdrawn and reserved physicist 'Dr. Bruce Banner', who transformed into the Hulk after being exposed to the blast of a test detonation of a gamma bomb he invented. Subsequently, Banner will involuntarily transform into the Hulk whenever he gets too angry or if his life is in danger.
