Interesting, thanks. Kinda wish Marvel would do this more often. Go to a well known studio or developer and offer them the change to make a game. It benefits everyone, we get a game for popular characters, developer gets to make their sort of game and Marvel makes money.

X-men games used to be pretty regular thing. The dispute and Activision contract ending changed that as we haven't had an X-men game outside of 1 on mobile a few years ago. But with Spider-man and Marvel Ultimate Alliance coming back, maybe Marvel will be looking to get their licenced characters out there again as DC have been winning the gaming thing, even if Marvel were winning the films.

Agreed 100%. I wish they could make a deal with Sony to make several games set in the same universe. Say, Imsoniac makes Spider-man, Guerilla makes X-men, etc etc. I know it kinda sucks for some people since they would be exclusives but several high-quality games set in the same comic universe would be amazing.

It would suck because we wouldn't see other games these studios make.

Disney has lauched a bot army to attack Sony tonight using #SaveSpiderman Tons of identical tweets coming from crooked "Disney Ops"

Now #SaveSpidermanFromSony is trending and the "Sony attack tweets" are getting 5k-20k likes in the last 3-6 hours. Disney's pulling ops to place social media pressure on Sony to fold. Walt Disney would fire crooked Bob Iger on the spot if he was still around today.

After Amazon (who's twitter army was rather weak) Disney's army is doing much better.

Fair point I guess. Though the same thing could be said of every game. Ghost of Tsushima sucks for the people who were waiting for another Infamous. Spider-man sucked for the people who were waiting for another Ratchet and Clank, etc etc.

As long as the developers don't become Marvel-brand machines and they take turns between games, it could work.

Would be funny seeing Sony investigating it and opening a lawsuit against Disney.

A little different on well instead of GoT we would want the 4th game of Infamous, and RT still had a lot of games on the last 2 gens.

The way you originally worded we would receive a bath of Marvel games and would miss other games. But sure Sony could double the size of all studios and the second team make Marvel games.

Because it worked so well for Spider-Man 3 and both ASM movies.

And both Ghost Rider movies, even though they're not apart of the Spidey universe. They still count because they're Sony (standalone) films.

LOL. 

Wasn't only the first Ghost Rider made by Sony? I can't see any information about them making the 2nd one. 

Nope, it was distributed by Columbia, which is owned by Sony, so still a Sony film.





Spiderman should have been a public domain character by now but Disney lobbied against it






I'm just so sure this thing is on disney haha

Not gonna lie, I don't care whose fault it is, I just want to see all Marvel properties and IPs controlled by one corporate entity. Doesn't have to be Disney, but if they can get it done, fine. Tired of seeing Spiderman separated from the rest like this. Better yet, actually, if I had a magic wand, I'd put all Marvel IPs into the public domain. Then I could actually enjoy every company's attempt at a cinematic universe, all in one lifetime.

Same here. Also, not just Spiderman, but to a lesser degree also the Hulk (Disney doesn't own the publishing rights of Hulk movies, hence why there's only one in the MCU)

And like I said in a previous post, I think Disney has gotten too big and needs to be cut down to size, preferably by making Marvel, including Marvel studios and all IP and ongoing contracts, it's own entity again, completely separate from Disney.

I agree, Disney is too big. Ignoring the magic wand and focusing on something more realistic, Marvel is very successful, so a fair breakup of Disney into Disney and Marvel, giving Marvel all the rights to Marvel properties that Disney currently owns, and all the value generated by those properties, would give them plenty head start to acquire the rest of their missing properties. Then they could just partner with Disney, Sony, or whoever else as necessary to make the movies, with them owning the IPs and licensing them to whoever is making the movie for them, under their direction.



I am looking forward to see the tweet from White House.
