These Marvel games are slated for release in the next few years: Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine from Insomniac Games, Marvel’s Midnight Suns from Firaxis Games, and the as yet untitled game from Skydance New Media.
If you believe the rumors, the list is short of two other projects. Electronic Arts is reportedly working on Marvel’s Black Panther and Marvel’s Iron Man, or whatever they end up naming the games.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been hearing rumors about EA’s next slate of Marvel games. However, arguably the most intriguing concerns Iron Man. Last week, Jeff Grubb and Tom Henderson announced that EA was working on an Iron Man game. Although they hinted that EA could still cancel this project, it is increasingly likely that it will come to fruition now that a new source has joined the fray.
XboxEra podcast co-founder and host Nick “Speshal Nick” Baker explained that his sources also told him about EA’s new Iron Man game. Baker added that he then compared his sources with Grubb and Henderson to see if they were all talking about the same game. ‘EA is coming out soon. As Baker explains, EA’s Iron Man game is still “super, super early,” adding that “there’s a chance it still won’t happen.”
Iron Man is one of the most popular comic book characters, thanks to Robert Downey Jr. and his masterful portrayal of Tony Stark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Seeing that Tom Cruise didn’t join Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as a variant of Iron Man, we’d love to play as an armored superhero in a video game soon. Hopefully EA reads all the hype these rumors have generated and speeds up development of the Iron Man game.
Speaking of Electronic Arts, the company revealed that it will release an undisclosed “major IP” no later than March 2023, which could be Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
