G4 to air Marvel anime series

'Iron Man,' 'X-Men' among titles sold by Sony Pictures TV

Four new Marvel-based TV series — “Iron Man,” “X-Men,” “Wolverine” and “Blade” — will hit cabler G4 in 2011, anime-style, through a deal with Sony Pictures TV.

Madhouse is producing with Marvel Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan. Each skein received an order for 12 half-hour episodes, with an Asian-centric thread. For example, in “Iron Man,” Tony Stark meets opposition when he tries to build a new reactor to deliver free energy to the Japanese people.

“We are excited to partner with Sony Pictures and Marvel to bring these incredible icons to G4,” G4 prexy Neal Tiles said. “Combine (Marvel’s box-office success) with the passionate following the world of anime brings with it, and we believe this project has incredible potential for the network.”

Warren Ellis plotted the stories, which he said were then scripted by Madhouse.

G4 also announced that it will launch a 10-episode second season of “American Ninja Warrior” in December. “Ninja” is produced by A. Smith & Co. Prods.
