Developers will have freedom to tell original stories with Marvel superheroes

Marvel Games Creative Director, Bill Rosemann, has said that developers will have the freedom to tell original stories with heroes like Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy.

“We want to give [developers like Insomniac and Telltale Games] freedom to tell their story and we want to make it an original story,” Rosemann told IGN. “We want to give our partners… freedom to look at all of Marvel history and to pick from what interests them. It’s a bit like we’re saying, ‘Hey you’re the chef, you’re going to make this meal. Here’s all of the ingredients. You pick the ingredients that you like and make a new meal.

“We want to give them freedom to tell their story and we want to make it an original story.”

Rosemann specifically cited Insomniac’s choice to include a white spider symbol on Spidey’s costume inside the PS4 exclusive Spider-Man as a “deliberate” move.

“We want all of our games to tell an original, all new story,” Rosemann affirmed. “We want [our partners] to have passion, we want them to put their stamp on the games. It’s their game. We want it to be their vision.”

Upcoming Marvel titles include Insomniac’s Spider-Man, Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Capcom’s Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite and Square Enix’s Avengers.
