Marvel, fresh from dominating theatres, is expanding its output of video games – led, of course, by Sony’s own Spider-Man and Wolverine adaptations. With a new Iron Man announced earlier this week, as well other in-development projects like Amy Hennig’s Captain America and Black Panther, many are pondering whether these titles could crossover like the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU as its better known.
But there are no plans to do that, according to Marvel Games bigwig Bill Rosemann: “The world is, amazingly, very familiar and accepting of the multiverse,” he told Games Industry.biz. “We have all these different realities. Now they’re all real, and we want to give everyone the freedom to tell their story. We don’t want to say ‘you can’t blow up the moon, because this game over here by another studio needs the moon’. We want to give everyone the freedom and the clear lane to tell their story.”
So, there you have it: there are no plans to connect all of these different projects – largely helmed by different publishers – together, which is probably for the best. Do you prefer the idea of these various games standing alone, or are you more attracted to the concept of crossover content?
