Marvel and Walt Disney Home Entertainment have detailed the Blu-ray release of Iron Man and Hulk: Heroes United, a new CG-animated adventure from Marvel Animation Studios that features the voice talents of Adrian Pasdar and Fred Tatasciore. Heroes United comes to Blu-ray on December 3rd.
Synopsis: In this action-packed teamup, the Invincible Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk come together to save the Earth from its greatest threat yet. When two HYDRA scientists try to supercharge a Stark Arc Reactor with Hulk's Gamma Energy, they unleash a being of pure electricity called the Zzzax, and he's hungry for destruction. Together, Iron Man and Hulk are the only force that stands in the way of the Zzzax's planetary blackout. But first the superhero duo will have to get through snarling Wendigos, deadly robots and the scaly powerhouse, Abomination. Can two of Marvel's mightiest heroes find a way to work together without smashing each other before time runs out?
Eric Radomski (TV's "Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man," "Batman: The Animated Series") is Supervising Creative Director, with Leo Riley (TV's "Mad," "The Ricky Gervais Show") serving as Supervising Director. Executive Producers are Alan Fine (Marvel's The Avengers, Thor, Iron Man 2), Dan Buckley (TV's "Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man," "Marvel's Avengers Assemble," "Marvel Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.") Joe Quesada (TV's "Marvel's Avengers Assemble," "Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man") and Jeph Loeb (TV's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."). Written by Henry Gilroy (TV's "Animatrix," "Batman: The Animated Series," "Batman Beyond") and Brandon Auman (TV's "Iron Man: Armored Adventures," "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes").
The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack release of Heroes United includes the following special features:
Marvel Inter-missions: Marvel puts a humorous twist on their old-school original animated series. What better way to take a break from fighting villains than hitting pause and enjoying a little comedy with Marvel Mash-Ups.
Marvel Team-Up with Ryan Penagos and Joe Q: Superheroes are larger than life on their own. But when they join forces with another, they become a force to be reckoned with. Marvel's Chief Creative Officer, Joe Quesada, joins Ryan Penagos (Agent M) in an intimate and lively one-on-one conversation about these Marvel Team-Ups.
I really don't know how I feel about this. They should have made it part of the MCU universe. It would be more fun to see what Tony and Bruce did post Avengers since Bruce went in Tony's car at the end.
With so many story lines to make into animated movies, why stick with something that is just a simple team up? I understand they were the two most popular characters in The Avengers movie and this film is simply a cash grab but DC has done very well in their animated department by doing the real stories.

I actually don't mind the look of it. The artistic style reminds me of that Spider-Man cartoon MTV came out with in the early 2000s (so this might be a decade late). But lets face it, anyone older then a kid is going to think this is rubbish, and they might not be wrong.
Disney views their Marvel cartoons as strictly intended for children under the age of 10. The live-action movies are meant for older people. I doubt we see much deviation from this policy in coming years. DC continues to churn out better animated movies for its heroes.
