Ahead of the Disney & Marvel Games Showcase at the D23 Expo today, rumors of Skydance Media and Amy Hennig’s upcoming game have surfaced. Marvel rumor collector MCU Status has claimed (and Eurogamer has confirmed the report) that the game will take place during World War II and will team up Captain America and Black Panther as they take on the forces of Hydra.
When it was first announced that Skydance New Media was working on a Marvel game, the project was described as a “narrative-driven, blockbuster action-adventure” set inside the Marvel Universe. Skydance won’t just be working on a Marvel game, as the studio is also developing a Star Wars title that has been described as a “richly-cinematic action-adventure” game.
This won’t be the first time that both of Marvel’s heroes have joined forces if the report is true, as Captain America and Black Panther were the stars of the Flags of our Fathers mini-series in 2010. That comic book series detailed the first meeting between the Marvel icons as they joined Nick Fury and his troops to fight Nazi forces.
