When Lego does a licensed property these days, it’s only a matter of time before it’s a video game as well. Marvel’s getting theirs in the fall, it was officially announced this morning. As in the movies, Nick Fury will be assembling a team of heroes to save the block-built universe from threats like Loki and Galactus. As not in the movies, they’ll be made of virtual plastic. Over 100 characters will be featured, including the Guardians of the Galaxy – in timely fashion to plug their own movie – and Deadpool, whom parents will have to explain isn’t the kind of character little kids want to be seeking other games about.
Now, let’s hope Lego really does end up making games of ALL their licenses…including the fan-voted variety.
