Brian Michael Bendis On Canceled THE AVENGERS Video Game

The Marvel comic book writer reveals that he wrote the now-canceled Avengers video game tie-in from THQ. He also comments on the point of view of the game and more.

Speaking with Game Informer Magazine, comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis (who is also the current writer for the Marvel MMO) revealed that he wrote THQ's now-defunct video game tie-in for Marvel's The Avengers. He briefly discusses the game's point of view, saying it was from the POV of Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America. Additionally, he confirmed that Hawkeye would've been a playable character as well.

"The one game that haunts me is that I was writing the Avengers game - the THQ game that got canceled," Bendis told the magazine. "I have a copy of it at the house, and it was a great looking game. It was a fully immersed Avengers game and the world will never see it."

"It was a point of view game, which was different than most super hero games, but you could play the game from the POV of Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor, and you could play the game co-op with four of your friends, so you could build an Avengers team and unlock players."

The last we heard about a new Avengers video game tie-in was back in September, when the video game rights based on Marvel's Avengers IP reverted back to Marvel, and "The company is in early stages of exploring potential publishing and licensing opportunities".
