Word actually leaked out on Friday that Marvel’s next motion comic will be Iron Man: Extremis, but the publisher makes it official this morning with this announcement, and trailer, on Entertainment Weekly‘s PopWatch blog.

As we speculated last week, the motion comic adapts the 2005 story arc by Warren Ellis and Adi Granov that heavily influenced the story and look of the first Iron Man film.

The first six episodes of Iron Man: Extremis will be available for download from iTunes, Zune and Xbox Live for $1.99 each beginning April 16 — ahead of the premiere of Iron Man 2 on May 7. Each additional episode will be released every two weeks.

Iron Man: Extremis is Marvel’s third motion comic, after Spider-Woman and Astonishing X-Men (both now available for free on Hulu). You can watch the trailer for Extremis at PopWatch.

My top pics for motion comics are-
Invincible Vol1, Batman: Black and White and Stephen King’s “N”

Astonishing X-Men and Watchmen I did not like at all.

Uh no. This story arc did not “heavily influence” the story and look of the first Iron Man movie. However, this story had a MINOR influence on the movie in setting Iron Man’s origin in the middle east, instead of in South East Asia. As for Granoy armor design influencing the look of the movie armor design, well that is only partly true since his armor design is just the latest update/take/redesign of the classic red and gold armor.

Considering that Adi Granov is the person who actually designed the armor for the Iron Man movie (IMDb lists him as “suit consultant”), I’d say it’s more than “partly” true.
