Marvel to bring ‘Iron Man’ to TV

Method, Cinnamon to co-produce toon series

LONDON — Comicbook superhero “Iron Man” may be a thoroughly American creation, but that hasn’t stopped Marvel Entertainment from partnering with European shingles to produce the latest “Iron Man” TV toon series.

Series is in production, and the first episode is due to be delivered in a month. A DVD launch of selected episodes is skedded before TV release.

Cinnamon managing director Anthony Bouchier said his company’s role in producing the series “is a tribute to the quality of animation talent working in the British Isles.”

Cinnamon, which has contributed early design and modelling work, specializes in children’s animation and is best known for BBC1’s CG toon hit “Freefonix.”

“Freefonix” follows the adventures of a pop group 50 years in the future in the city of Los Bosmos.

“Freefonix” was created by Magnus Fiennes, brother of actors Ralph and Joseph, and launches to the international market at Mip TV in Cannes next week.

French org Method Films turned heads with CG series “Skyland,” which aired on Nickelodeon in the U.S. and on ITV in the U.K.

The latest “Iron Man” TV series will follow the release of the live-action “Iron Man” feature.

Pic, which stars Robert Downey Jr. in the lead role and Samuel L. Jackson as Marvel superhero Nick Fury, opens May 2 Stateside and in the U.K.

Other co-producers of the “Iron Man” TV series are Indian animation house DQ Animation, lead broadcaster France 2 and specialist compositing house Lux Animation (Luxembourg).
