Produced by Madhouse and currently in production in Japan, the film is slated for release on DVD in the spring of 2013.
Directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki ("Shigurui," "TEXHNOLYZE"), with story by Brandon Auman ("The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!," "Iron Man: Armored Adventures"), the film explores a confrontation between Iron Man and the villainous Ezekiel Stane, who develops new bio-technology that seemingly outclasses the Iron Man armor.
