‘Heroes’ Actors Cast As Iron Man & Wolverine In Marvel Anime Series
Empress Eve   |  

Iron Man anime

Marvel Television announced today the casting of two former Heroes actors for their two new anime series Iron Man and Wolverine.

Adrian Pasdar, who starred as Nathan Petrelli, a human with superhuman powers on the NBC drama Heroes, will voice the character Tony Stark in Iron Man, an all-new series which sees Stark travel to Japan and battle the evil Zodiac Organization.

Milo Ventimiglia, who played Pasdar’s super-powered on-screen brother on Heroes, will voice the title role in Wolverine, as Logan claws his way through Japan’s criminal underworld.

Iron Man and Wolverine will air on the G4 cable network later this year, along with the Blade and X-Men anime series.

G4 will air an exclusive clip from Wolverine on Wednesday’s Attack of the Show at 7PM ET/PT.

See images below from the two upcoming series.

    The Pasdar choice is brilliant, and a no-brainer.

    Milo as Wolverine? That seems much more of a stretch. Though the art for Wolvy in that series so far is much less of the cigar-chomping chopper riding Wolverine we’re used to. So maybe it’ll work.

    My thoughts exactly. Milo will have an uphill battle to prove himself.

    I’ve seen both series while in Japan and it doesn’t matter who gets voice casted, both of these Marvel anime series are abysmal. All the cutting edge animation in the world won’t save our heroes from stereotypical Japanese anime cliches and video game plotting.
