It seemed pretty quiet on the Western front for Marvel's anime production after their Blade, Iron Man, Wolverine, and X-Men shows from a couple of years ago. Today, a trailer surfaced showing marvel's newest team-up with anime production company, Madhouse Inc. to produce Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and Punisher.
Iron Man will be joined by Avengers War Machine, Captain Marvel, Thor, Hulk, and Hawkeye (also S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Nick Fury and Maria Hill and Black Widow and Punisher as in the title) in their adventures against Leviathan. Here's the official synopsis:
“After interfering with a top secret mission, The Punisher is taken into custody by S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and Avenger Black Widow. At the orders of Director Nick Fury, Punisher and Black Widow are sent on a mission to stop Leviathan, a global terrorist organization that plans to sell stolen S.H.I.E.L.D. technology to the highest bidder. Now, the vigilante and spy must work together to prevent this technology from falling into the wrong hands. The fate of the world, and of the Avengers, hangs in the balance.”
Black Widow will be voiced by Jennifer Carpenter, and Punisher by Brian Bloom. The anime will be direct to video appearing on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital on March 25.
