Canceled Avengers Game Could Have Been the Greatest Superhero Title Ever (Updated)

It really puzzles me as to what game companies think is acceptable for product tie-in games. For every Batman: Arkham Asylum and Spider-Man 2 we get, there’s such turd piles as Thor, Iron Man 1 and 2 and that Hulk game where you could sneak around as Bruce Banner. With so many bad superhero games flooding the market, you’d think that Marvel would gravitate towards a product that does Earth’s Mightiest Heroes justice, but apparently this promising-looking Avengers game was canned. Watch for yourself and bemoan its loss with me. Also, this might spoil the main enemy of the Avengers movie (maybe), so you know, don’t watch if you’re worried about that. Looks like the original video has been pulled, so I’ll try to add new ones as they come.

I never thought that controlling the Hulk or Iron Man from a first-person perspective would work, but this looks totally awesome. Imagine this game in co-op? One of your friends leaps into the fray as the Hulk while you fly around and blast fools with repulsor beams? I guess some things are too good to be true.

  1. While this game may be gone forever I really hope some people in the industry see the reaction this is getting online and take note. A Left 4 Dead superhero game needs to exist asap. Cap looks really fun to play, I wish I saw some Thor hammer action…actually Im glad I didnt, the more stuff I saw the more Id want this game.

  2. It looked very impressive. It’s a shame it didn’t see the light of day because, as we’re all aware, there’s not many good superhero games around. I wonder why it was cancelled.
