Anyone itching for more on-screen Hulk should be pleased with the announcement of Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United, a feature-length home video release from Marvel Animation Studios.
Robert Downey, Jr. and Mark Ruffalo won't be voicing, but Marvel says they still intend to maintain the "tone and character" of The Avengers, specifically Banner and Stark's wonderful bromance. It'll be put to the test when they team up against the energy monster Zzzax. Heroes United hits shelves on April 23.
The mighty 90-year-old Stan Lee won't go down without a fight. He recently received surgery for the installation of a
miniature arc reactor pacemaker, but The Man issued this statement to ease his supporters:
Attention, Troops! This is a dispatch sent from your beloved Generalissimo, directly from the center of Hollywood's combat zone! Now hear this! Your leader hath not deserted thee! In an effort to be more like my fellow Avenger, Tony Stark, I have had an electronic pace-maker placed near my heart to insure that I'll be able to lead thee for another 90 years. But fear thee not, my valiant warriors. I am in constant touch with our commanders in the field and victory shall soon be ours. Now I must end this dispatch and join my troops, for an army without a leader is like a day without a cameo!
A leaked set photo from earlier this summer set the blogosphere abuzz about Iron Patriot's presence in Iron Man 3, but the rumors were quashed with a statement confirming War Machine would instead be donning the Stars & Stripes.
However, some recent trademark filings by Marvel strongly support an Iron Patriot appearance in some future Marvel film. Which one, nobody knows, but you don't go around requesting trademarks without the intention of using them -- generally speaking.
