G4 has announced that it will be the home for four brand-new anime series from Marvel, animated by respected animation studio Madhouse and masterminded by Warren Ellis, beginning next year. The series – Iron Man, X-Men, Wolverine and Blade – are being described by the channel as featuring “a matrix of interlinked storylines and shared guest characters that further enhance this intellectual roller coaster ride,” with each series bringing its characters to Japan for various reasons.
Commenting on the announcement, Marvel’s head of television, Jeph Loeb, said,
Bringing Marvel and our characters to G4 is such an awesome opportunity. The size and scope of the animation from top-flight studios Madhouse and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan is nothing short of mind-blowing. We look forward to the start of a beautiful friendship and can’t wait to see the reaction from our worldwide fan-base.
The four series will launch next year.
