PostSubject: New Footage of Canceled First-Person Avengers Game Surfaces   Mon Nov 30, 2015 11:46 am

Several years ago, THQ was working a big-budget superhero game tied to Marvel's The Avengers movie. It was canceled in the wake of THQ Australia's closing, and now new footage of the title has surfaced.

Check out the video below, courtesy of Unseen 64 and DidYouKnowGaming (via VG247) , which not only contains gameplay footage, but also assets and details on the game's development.

The title was in development for both both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at Studio Australia, with Blue Tongue joining the project to help with a PC version. There were also apparently plans to port the game to Wii U a bit later on in development.

The Avengers: The Movie, as it was tentatively titled, was designed to be a first-person action game, in which players controlled either Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, or Captain America. Both Black Widow and Hawkeye were planned to be unlockable characters. Additionally, the game was going to feature co-op play, in which you and three friends (or AI-controlled companions) could fight together as Marvel's mighty heroes.

The esteemed Marvel Comics writer Brian Michael Bendis was reportedly involved in the project and even crafted a story for the game. It was supposed to release alongside Marvel's The Avengers in 2012, but unfortunately the high costs of the project and THQ's untimely financial trouble forced the publisher to scrap the project.
