Variety reports that Marvel Entertainment will work alongside Method Animation and Cinnamon Entertainment for a CGI Iron Man cartoon.

The article states that a few episodes will be pulled together for a DVD release just prior to the series’ broadcast premiere. The tone will follow directly from the upcoming Paramount film (which, interestingly enough, Variety reports as starring Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson).

26 half-hour episodes have been ordered and — if past Marvel film to animation tie-ins are┬á any indication — that might very well be all we’ll see. MTV’s CGI Spider-Man only had 13 episodes while Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes had a 26 episode order and only aired seven.

Marvel previously featured Iron Man in a 1994 cartoon series and, more recently, in a direct-to-DVD animated feature.
