Marvel Gets Animated

In News by Alex Moss Editor

Marvel, one of the biggest names in movies right now, is looking to go animated.  Having been bought by Disney it makes sense that the two giants should combine their strongest powers; animation and super heroes to team up. The project in question is Big Hero 6 which tells the story of Hiro Hamada who finds himself involved with a conspiracy to destroy the high-tech city of San Fransokyo.  With the help of his robot friend Baymax, Hiro joins forces with a group of government assembled super heroes save the city.  Big Hero 6 was created in 1998 for Marvel by Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau and will be directed by comic book fan, and Winnie The Pooh director, Don Hall.  The film will follow the manga style of the comic books with giant robots and monsters attacking the city alongside cute characters in the vein of Hello Kitty according to Marvel’s chief creative officer Joe Quesada.  You can see early footage of the film below with the release date set for November 2014.   So what do you reckon?  Are Disney and Marvel the ultimate team-up, the film world’s equivalent of The Avengers but with less bickering?  Source – Disney and The LA Times
