Marvel's Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United (2013)

Knowing that I will be binge watching Daredevil this weekend and making video of it I wanted to take it easier with today's post. Marvel's Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United is direct to video animation movie which started series of Heroes United animated movies. Series is strong word in this case because there is only one other movie at the moment. Iron Man's and Captain America's movie which was introduced at end credit scene of this movie.

It is not hard to see why this series has not got wind beneath its wings. Story is like from worst superhero animations. It is senseless fighting almost all the time and things make very little sense. Story goes something like Hydra captures Hulk and Abomination to make new super weapon. Something goes wrong and they release strange energy being called Zzzax. Zzzax tries to eat all the energy it can. It is up to Hulk and Iron Man to stop Zzzax.

Movie looks good. I liked the style but that is only good thing I can say about Marvel's Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United. Other good thing were how it reminded me of better things. Like The Incredible Hulk (2008) which also had Abomination. It is a shame that movie didn't get sequel. We saw Hulkbuster armor which we have also seen in Age of Ultron trailer.

Whole movie felt like it tried to cash on live action movies' success. If you want to see good animated Marvel movie I suggest you check Planet Hulk (2010). Why Marvel Animations don't do movies like that? They have good comic stories in comics which they could turn into animated or live action movies. Instead they make rubbish like Marvel's Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United.
