Marvel Anime (2010-2011) is a four-series anthology co-produced between Marvel Comics and Studio Madhouse, first announced at the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con. Featuring Iron Man, Wolverine, the X-Men and Blade as the leads of their respective shows, each of their stories involve travelling to Japan either to simply save the day, motivated by revenge in the case of Wolverine, to save a kidnapped member of the X-Men, or to slay a few vampires hiding there. Supervised by Warren Ellis (with the exception of Blade), the anthology is said to create an entire parallel universe for Marvel, according to representatives of the company.

In 2013, the film Iron Man: Rise of Technovore was released to coincide with the release of Iron Man 3. The flick also featured several heroes from the film The Avengers, such as Hawkeye, Black Widow and Nick Fury. Another film, this time called Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher, is being released in 2014 as a tie-in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

See also: Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers, another Marvel-themed anime collaboration, though this time done with Toei Animation.
