The new Marvel game from Amy Hennig’s Skydance New Media division is taking a different approach to the Marvel Universe, teasing a game set in World War 2-era Paris starring Captain America and Black Panther.
In a moody, cinematic trailer set to Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’ it’s not until the end we see Captain America’s iconic shield and a brief glimpse of Cap and Black Panther facing off. The words ‘King,’ ‘Captain,’ ‘Soldier,’ ‘Spy,’ then flash across the screen before the trailer ends with a shadowy look of our heroes.
Check out the trailer below.
The teaser implies the game will take place across two locations, likely Paris and Wakanda, and star four heroes. While two of them will be Captain America and Black Panther, we also get a look at Howling Commandos member Gabriel Jones and Nanali, the leader of the Wakandan Spy Network.
Other than a few easter eggs (Hydra notebook?) Skydance Media looks to be keeping plot details under wraps. IGN’s Ryan McCaffrey interviewed Hennig and learned a few new details about the project:
Skydance New Media was founded in 2019 as Skydance’s video game development studio. Under Hennig, Skydance New Media has already announced a Star Wars game in partnership with Lucasfilm Games, but it appears the team is now ready to add a Marvel title to the lineup.
