Marvel Knights Motion Comics Continue With Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous
I guess there wasn’t an appropriate Avengers story to put out for the movie … Marvel has announced that the next release in the Marvel Knights line of motion comics will be Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous.
This is a return to the characters from the first entry in the Shout! Factory DVD series, which was Astonishing X-Men: Gifted. Since then, there’s been Iron Man: Extremis, Black Panther, Spider-Woman: Agent of S.W.O.R.D., and Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers.
Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous is due out April 10, and it’s promoted as “From Joss Whedon, the mastermind behind the upcoming motion picture release Marvel’s The Avengers, and award-winning artist John Cassaday”. It’s based on the comic book collection of the same name, originally published as Astonishing X-Men #7-12 and thus following directly from Gifted. In that comic story, the Danger Room became the sentient robot Danger and sent Sentinels after the X-Men.
I was pleasantly surprised by how effective the limited animation techniques could be with Gifted, so I’m hoping to check this one out too.
