Looking ahead for the Marvel universe, fans all around are ecstatic to see more from the chaining series of comic heroes as the stories continue to develop into a larger global phenomenon than ever before. Ranging from the line of films underway to the string of new paperback entries as interpreted traditionally, there is no better time to be a Marvel fan than right now. The same energy can also be found on gaming consoles as well.
Either it being Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man or the coming Marvel’s Avengers from Crystal Dynamics & Eidos Montreal, the expansive universes continue to grow in ways that many dreamt of decades prior. Howbeit though, the gaming entries are not as malleable as other forms of medium.
In that, when speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Games Vice President Bill Rosemann shared with the publication that the series despite the two sharing the name of Marvel in both titles is not linking both worlds together.
Each game is in the Marvel universe, but they’re in their own reality, if you will. Currently, our plan is to keep each game set in its own Marvel universe.
The discovery sure does come as a surprise as fans had already put on their tin foil hats when finding the interconnections between different films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But to say the same is not implied for the video game titles underway is something the users will need to be accustomed to if more entries are presumed to arrive at a later date.
Rosemann does disclose that the plan does align with its plans “currently”. This could suggest that the series of entries to follow suit could eventually intertwine at a later time whenever Marvel Games feels appropriate for the game to be connected. But for the time being, followers are expected to accept the game’s universe to be unique from one another.
The news also comes as a surprise following a recent announcement made by Crystal Dynamics. The firm sharing that it will be offering an exclusive Spider-Man add-On for Marvel’s Avengers on PlayStation systems. With the DLC and Marvel’s Spider-Man both unique to Sony’s systems, you would assume there would be some sort of link. You can read the full announcement by heading here.
