A week and a half ago we told you that Marvel Entertainment was going to dip its toe into the direct to-DVD/Blu-ray animation game, a game so long dominated by DC Entertainment, with Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United. Yesterday, at New York Comic Con we got our first look at the film via the trailer.
As the charter member of the iFanboy Animation Braintrust and a big fan of superhero animation, I am kind of disappointed. The animation style, which is obviously very CGI based, puts me at arms length. It lacks the warmth of more traditional animation. It took me a while to come around to Green Lantern: The Animated Series, and that show’s more cartoony style works much better with CGI. I am, however, willing to have my mind changed upon viewing the film.
