lego marvelUpdate: We have a few new character pics for the game including Hulk, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Deadpool and an image that teases the inclusion of Sandman. Check those out below.

We also have some details on characters who are very likely to show up in the game. The list includes: The Thing, Juggernaut, Sandman, Green Goblin in a OsCorp Tower level, and Magneto.

 

Traveller’s Tale took on the DC universe in Lego Batman 2: Dc Super Heroes, a result of the studio being purchased by Warner Bros. in 2007. Because WB owns DC and the gaming company, many thought a Lego Marvel videogame was all but impossible. The fact TT is working on a new Lego game featuring over 100 Marvel characters came as quite the surprise to fans and the game’s developers alike.  In a recent write-up in the newest issue of Game Informer, thanks to our friend Llama for some scans, the company talked on the new project and teased new details for the upcoming game.

Jonathan Smith, TT Games head of production, touched on the seemingly impossible task of WB making a Marvel game:

The experience we’ve had with massive media organizations is that they’re not entirely stocked by bad people. This may come as a shock to people on the internet, but it turns out that big media organizations are capable of making really good decisions with players’ best interests at heart.

pg 5The article reveals that the game will feature The Avengers as an important part of the game, but it will work in other characters, factions, and groups inside the Marvel universe. The game’s story will be written by Mark Hoffmeier. The writer is no stranger to big franchises having written some for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Spider-Man: The Animated Series, and Marvel Super Hero Squad.  The story is still under wraps but it appears Loki will reach out to an unnamed villain to create a “bad-guy alliance to defeat the heroes who stand in their way.”

Two of the game’s most unique characters will be Spider-Man and Hulk. The city of New York will be destroyed in part and rebuilt by players, but gamers can cause destruction of their own with Hulk. The game developers had to work a lot of things around the green behemoth who will be a major focus of the game. Objects have to be destroyable and react to Hulk’s hyperstrength. While the Lego game will have the skillset characters of the previous game, Spider-Man seems to be in a class of his own. Instead of having isolated areas for web use like Batman’s grappling hook, the web slinger can use his webs to stick to any surface and swing wherever players want. Spider-Man’s webs can also be used to tie up bad guys and grab/pull objects. The trademark Spider sense is also in the game. According to one developer “Spider-Man is quite possibly the most difficult of the characters we’ve worked on, but he’s becoming the most satisfying from a design perspective.”

You can learn even more about the upcoming Marvel Lego game by picking up the newest issue of Game Informer. It sounds like this will be going well beyond the usually superhero Lego game fare. With the level of detail and free playing ability to Hulk and Spider-Man, it will be exciting to see what they bring for the other 100+ characters. What do you think? Will you be picking this game up?

Day 4 of 31 in 31 brings us the movie, Monster Squad. It’s fun and as the film’s title implies, there’s monsters involved. The film was written by Shane Black and Fred Dekker. Dekker also directed. Now, I’m not one to throw the term “cheesy” out there to describe a movie nor am I one to think that a movie is “so-bad-that-it’s-good”. If it’s good, it’s good. If it’s bad, it’s bad. But it’s OK to like a bad movie. This, however, is not a bad movie, just know what you’re getting into since it was made in 1987.

The film centers around Sean and Patrick as well as their rag-tag team of friends, Horace aka “Fat Kid” and Rudy, the older cool kid, who started a monster club in their treehouse. It turns out all the monsters they read about are real. Dracula, Wolfman, The Mummy, The Creature (of Black Lagoon fame), and of course, Frankenstein’s monster. Through a turn of events, Dracula is looking for an amulet in order to take over the world and it just so happens to be in this Smalltowne, USA. (yeah, I know it sounds bad, but it was the 80s. What did you expect?). Sean and friends catch wind to what is going on and decide to try and stop the monsters with a help of the ‘Scary German Guy’.

Again, this is just a fun movie that showcases monsters. You can’t hide how 1980s the movie is especially with the nice montage song. Besides, what other movie can give you the line, “Whoa! Wolfman’s not nards!”?
