We already told you about Marvel's plan to unveil its new anime superhero TV project at Comic-Con. Now comes word that the comics giant will offer a first-look at its Iron Man and Wolverine anime shows at Friday' Marvel Animation panel.

Writer and god among nerds, Warren Ellis, is scripting Marvel's anime projects and will appear at the panel to unveil never-before seen teaser trailers for both shows and discuss writing the heroes' anime adventures.

Marvel is expected to produce two more anime series starring two of its most popular heroes. I'm thinking Spider-Man and Hulk (but I'm hoping for Warlock!) The anime series are being produced for the Japanese market and will air on Japan's Animax channel starting spring 2010. The series will most likely make their way to the U.S. shortly after. Sony's new production/distribution subsidiary has inked a deal with Marvel anime producers Madhouse to distribute the series worldwide, says Variety.
