An all-new direct-to-video Marvel animated adventure suits up on Blu-ray this April.

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony is working on 'Iron Man: Rise of Technovore' for Blu-ray on April 16.

Billionaire Tony Stark, in his Iron Man armor, prevents an attack from a mysterious new foe, but innocent bystanders are killed, including his best friend War Machine, Lt. Colonel James Rhodes. Detained for questioning by S.H.I.E.L.D., Iron Man escapes, determined to find the mastermind behind the attack. Pursued by Black Widow and Hawkeye, Iron Man enlists the help of the ruthless vigilante The Punisher. But can the Armored Avenger handle what he finds when he catches the person responsible and is forced to face his deadliest weapon, a biotechnology called Technovore that could wipe out all life on the planet?

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include Tale of Technovore, S.H.I.E.L.D: Protecting the World, and a Blu-ray exclusive Conceptual Art Gallery.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $30.99.
