The wait is almost over for the US television premiere of Iron Man and Wolverine, and a specific date and time has now been added for both.
Iron Man's run kicks off on Friday, July 29 at 11 p.m. EST, with Wolverine following right behind it at 11:30. Both series are set for 12 episodes, with new ones airing each week. Comic writer/Man of the Internet Warren Ellis has been guiding the co-productions between MADHOUSE Studios and Marvel Entertainment, with these being the first two of four to make their way to television in the states.
G4 will also be premiering X-Men and Blade later this year. Below you'll find the network's promotional video for the Marvel anime series, as well as their official synopses for Iron Man and Wolverine.
Iron Man, featuring Adrian Pasdar (Heroes, Castle, Profit) as the voice for Tony Stark.
In an effort to make amends for his past in weapons manufacturing, Tony Stark has dedicated himself to building the world up rather than tearing it down. Traveling to Japan to build a new arc reactor that will deliver unlimited free energy to the Japanese people, Stark is challenged by the Japanese government and the media when he attempts to import the necessary nuclear priming device. When the nuclear reactor is repeatedly attacked by the mysterious Zodiac consortium, Stark must gather his allies to take on Zodiac and its mastermind.
Wolverine, featuring Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Gilmore Girls, Rocky Balboa) as the voice of Wolverine.
Based on the popular graphic novel by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, the series begins when Mariko, the love of Logan’s life, is forced back to Japan by her crime-lord father, Shingen. Logan vows to get her back at any cost. He is plunged into a chaotic world of corruption and violence, forcing him to team up with young assassin, Yukio, to battle their way through the Japanese criminal underworld.
