Call of Duty: Move over, Marvel — Activision wants a cinematic universe too

Activision Blizzard wants a Call of Duty cinematic universe to rival the likes of Marvel’s, The Guardian has recently reported.

Activision Blizzard Studios’ Co-Presidents Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk are behind the push. Van Dyk is an ex-Disney executive who was a major player in the corporation’s acquisition of both Marvel and Star Wars, while Sher has worked on a number of Quentin Tarantino films.

“We have plotted out many years. We put together this group of writers to talk about where we were going,” Sher said of a Call of Duty cinematic universe.

“There’ll be a film that feels more like Black Ops, the story behind the story. The Modern Warfare series looks at what it’s like to fight a war with the eyes of the world on you. And then maybe something that is more of a hybrid, where you are looking at private, covert operations, while a public operation is going on.”

Van Dyk said each Call of Duty film will be “a big, tentpole Marvel-esque movie” containing “individual universes that interconnect and a timeline that makes sense with consistent themes and Easter eggs.”

You may see the first Call of Duty film as early as 2018.

We’ll, of course, keep you posted.
