Iron Man looks cool. Wolverine looks stupid since it looks like just some random dude with claws.

That Iron Man looks REALLY cool. Wolverine looks like crap.
I guess the ratings on the YouTube vids speak for themselves.

Why does wolverine have a Mullet?
that's what I was wondering!

'Cause he's Canadian, duh.

Gotta agree, Wolverine looks completely wrong. He looks too anime-ish. The dude is supposed to be a Canadian Man-Wolf Bad-Ass, who can and will tear you apart with his claws. This one looks like some sort of unshaven man model with claws that he retracts and whips out again, like he's trying to impress someone, even though he's fighting a 100 ft tall monster. Everything else looked great though.
Iron Man looks fantastic. The armor looks superb, and its got depth and weight to it. That is one stellar piece of work that holds true to the original character. Its great to see so much of love for him post Jon Favreau's film.

Both look AMAZING!!! I'm SO EXCITED for this!!! The production value for this is pretty good! I think Iron Man is going to be better than Wolverine though because they took too much creative license in their adaptation of Wolverine. Like, what the random??? It doesn't even look like Wolverine!

I agree, Wolverine looks friggin' dumb. Why change the character design?

All I can say is wow, as in wow, Iron Man looks cool, and wow, Wolverine doesn't look like Wolverine.
Warren Ellis also has my interest up; I like what I've read of his previous work and GI Joe: Resolute was pretty cool.
The one question that remains, are these the first two and there will be two other characters covered as well, later on?

The first episode of MADHOUSE (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=392)'s Iron Man anime series will have its world premiere at Comic-Con International, which will run in San Diego from July 22 to July 25. The Animax (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=506) anime television channel has also announced (http://www.animax.co.jp/campaign/ironman/) that the anime will then hold its television premiere on Animax in Japan on Friday, October 1 at 10:00 p.m. Marvel Entertainment had previously stated (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-11-07/madhouse-iron-man-next-spring-wolverine-in-summer) that the 12-episode series would premiere during the second quarter (April-June) of the year. Marvel Anime: Iron Man and Marvel Anime: Wolverine were slated to air in the United States next year.
Marvel Entertainment had revealed (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-08-24/madhouse-to-create-4-anime-with-marvel-comic-heroes) in August of 2008 that it was working (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-08-25/iron-man-wolverine-in-marvel-madhouse-1st-tv-anime) with MADHOUSE on four series with Marvel's stable of comic book characters. (The other two projects will center (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-07-24/marvel-confirms-blade-x-men-planet-hulk-anime) on Blade and X-Men.) Masao Maruyama (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=936), the co-founder of MADHOUSE, offered (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-07-11/madhouse-head-to-offer-1st-look-at-marvel-anime-at-cci) a video preview of its Iron Man and Wolverine work at Comic-Con International last July.

Late to the party, but Iron Man looks badass!

I second the surprise and frustration over mullet-man-with-claws. Even if Wolverine is interpreted as a half-beast, half-model, Japanese guy, not even a badass could pull off a waist-length mullet. Also, Wolverine fighting demons? No thanks.

When that Iron Man anime comes out on Blu-ray disc set some time in 2011 I'm definitely getting it! http://www.en.kolobok.us/smiles/standart/good2.gif

There are production stills for the new X-Men Anime circulating. Google Images has a few of them. They look really good. If you search for X-Men Anime 2011 they should come up. The only shots of the Blade anime series seem the title shot at this moment though.
