Spider-Man, Iron Man and Hulk CG

This has been around for almost two months, but I just caught up with it last night and had to share. It’s apparently a viral promo short created to boost comic book sales. It’s the best CG version of The Hulk I’ve ever seen, and the Spider-man and Iron Man characterizations seem spot on. I wonder who made it. Anyone know?

  • “You need to chill” – this is why I don’t read superhero comics.

  • Drew Smith

    I could happily watch an hour or two of that.

  • Dude, just that 4 minutes of Spidey was twice as good as all of Spider-man 3! Freakin’ awesome!

    Looks really decent! Seizure making cinematography but nice quality

  • Mel Northover

    Very nice indeed, completely drew me in and I’m not normally a big fan, does anyone know any more details?

  • Adam Perry

    i thought i heard blur made this

  • Hulk reaching out to pet the dog he shielded with his body saying “pup-ee” is pretty much the reason I -do- read superhero comics.

  • Gummo

    Okay, THAT’s the superhero movie I want to see! Why can’t they do that on the big screen!

  • These were made by Blur Studio. They first did the cutscenes for the video game Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, and then went on to do these afterwards.

    I think Blur Studios, the same guys who did the cutscenes for the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance videogame did this. Not sure, though. You can tell this was made by true comic fans.

  • That was pretty high-quality. Spider-man seems different than in the movies for some reason, but the hulk and iron man look spot on.

    I bet the VFX team behind spider man, hulk and iron man were behind this, as they could have access to all the CG assets.

  • mat

    It is from the marvel kids website. A kid aimed part of marvel comics site and was made by marvel.

    It’s not fan made.

  • Jay Pennington

    That was great! I wish Spidey had been more effectual in the battle, though; apart from saving a kid, all he did was call for reinforcements–twice.

  • Sphinx Magoo

    The movies originally appeared here: http://marvelkids.marvel.com/videos

    If I were to guess on who did the animation, I might guess Blur Studios: http://www.blur.com/
    They’ve done other movies featuring Marvel characters for video games. Check out their reel… it’s pretty good!

  • I’m pretty sure it was Blur Studios. And, yeah, it’s been around for a while. The video above was actually a 4-part mini-series that Marvel released in order to promote their two sumer “blockbusters,” Iron-Man and The Incredible Hulk.

    It was great seeing it as one video, though. Thanks!

  • I’m pretty sure Blur Studios in LA did those.

  • This is pretty awesome!
    And I believe Blur Studios created this.

  • Crash

    I, too, was under the impression that Blur did these. My company has contracted work from these guys. They’re simply amazing and always deliver the goods.

  • I wonder if Blur Studios did this. Anyone know?

    =)

    -Steve!

  • We might end up getting a movie like this…

  • Surprisingly cool! That’s how Spider-Man should’ve looked in the movies.

  • It was Blur. Tim Miller and crew consistently crank out some of the best action hero type stuff out there. I’m really looking forward to seeing what they do with Heavy Metal.

  • red pill junkie

    I don’t know if Marvel would go for a motion picture with this idea—at least, not yet— but this definitely would make a killer half-hour show for Cartoon Network. Even if it was just a short miniseries like Genndy’s ‘Clone Wars’.

    And yes, that Hulk was flawless, even the psychology of the character saving the little mutt. I expect nothing less than this when I go to see the new Hulk movie.

    The only thing missing? A virtual cameo of Stan Lee ;-)

  • ridgecity

    This gotta be from Marvel Studios. They gotta promote the movies, look at the ending it almost reads “2008 heroes save the 2007 hero!”

    And the Hulk feels right because it talks, it the first movie he’s just silent and sad…

  • K.Borcz

    WOW that was awesome looking.

  • tom

    If no one has mentioned this yet, I think Blur did this animation.

    ha ha.

    This is really nice though.

  • Really? Best representation ever? Yawn. I’m slowly losing faith in J. Becks taste (kung fu panda better be a good film jerry, I’m not talking about just looking pretty either)…monsters vs aliens looks sweet though…

    It was definitely Blur, I could tell you that from the rendering and lighting style. It’s pretty neat to see CG work nowadays and associate a studio with it. Blur has a very distinct style that if you’re familiar with their work, you would spot it quick as heck…

    i don’t know, this whole thing was boring. i liked their hellgate work better, much more dramatic.

  • Ira Owens

    BLUR

  • Mitch Kennedy

    I’m not usually big on CG, but MAN that was SO MUCH more fun than the crappy superhero movies being released! Those guys were way cooler than their “live-action” counterparts!

  • RAB SMITH

    I’m sure I would have loved this as a kid; this is the sort of imagery that sprang from my childhood imagination reading ‘MARVEL/DC comics, as I tried to imagine a dynamic, motion-picture equivalent of the comicbook high-jinks.

  • escapefrmla

    This was amazing. You could only hope that Marvel thinks of doing this in the future, I agree better that all three spider-man movies.

  • Aron

    The Daily Bugle would never publish that headline, now would it.

  • as long as spiderman isn’t on the front i think it would

  • OM

    …I’d heard Blur was doing something like this a few months back, but I had no idea they’d done anythiing *THIS* fracking good! If only they could afford to do a regular series with this level of quality, it could revive KidVid back to the glory it had before Peggy Charren learned who her congressdork was.

  • Susana

    That was pretty cool, and i love superheroes!

    aww, but i would have loved to see spiderman getting his spotlight in defeating a robot in one way or the other. :P he’s my favorite!

  • @susana

    spider man has three movies already :) this was to show kids iron man and hulk.

  • IchigoMait

    It’s called Iron Man’s Adventure you can watch it on http://marvel.com/movietrailer

  • Guz

    I don’t think Blur made this… There’s nothing about it on their website.
