Arty Awesomeness Cartoons & Comics Entertainment

Marvel Gets TRON-ified recently put up a special range of covers which shows our popular comic book heroes into a new light, Tron-style. This also highlights that Marvel has begun designs for a Marvel Tron comic, Tron: The Betrayal. It is a miniseries so I’m hoping that it’s full of quality!

Since Disney’s acquisition of Marvel I have been very weary of the future for comics, but it seems that Marvel is keeping its true spirit alive. I just hope it doesn’t go further than this.

Walt Disney Pictures’ 3D adventure, Tron: Legacy is due in theaters on December 17th. So along with this, Marvel comics has produced these variant covers to promote the new film. These characters have been re-imagined to tie in with the Tron universe, and of course, to get us even more hyped up about this highly anticipated film. The artists, Mark Brooks and Brandon Peterson, have truly nailed the crossover.

Tron: Legacy is a sequel to the original 1982 film and promises new material and a great cinematic experience. Tron: Evolution is the tie-in video game, scheduled for release late this year as well. I’m hoping that these Marvel characters can make some guest appearances in there.

So here are some of the Marvels’ Tron variant covers:

I did forget something before reading the comments on the marvel site. Disney owns marvel and this is their tie-in for the upcoming Tron film. Disney is using the heroes to promote their stuff.
If I see Wolvie playing alongside Mickey Mouse, I’m gonna be super-pissed.

Thats what everyone is afraid of…
I mentioned that Disney aquired Marvel, and I hope that it doesn’t get involved any further than this.

Mind you I never thought that Kingdom Hearts would ever do well. Now its one of my favourite titles.
