Activision receives rights from Marvel

  It was announced today by Activision that it has obtained the exclusive rights to Marvel’s Fantastic Four and The Invincible Iron Man. With this agreement, Activision will develop and publish games for the PC and next-generation consoles. With no release dates being given, it is believed that the games may be based on the 2003 and 2004 movies of Iron Man and Fantastic Four.

   "Activision is thrilled to extend our relationship with Marvel by adding these phenomenally rich characters to our slate of established brands," said Greg Goldstein, vice president of brand development and licensing for Activision, Inc. "Both of these properties have entertained fans around the world in the form of comic books and other media for more than 35 years. We intend to take full advantage of current videogame hardware technology to bring these iconic super heroes to life as never before."

   "After seeing the excitement and success surrounding Activision's Marvel videogames, it is obvious to me that the people at Activision understand Super Heroes and know what our fans expect,” said Russ Brown, senior vice president, consumer products, promotions & media sales for Marvel. “Fantastic Four and Iron Man are two other properties that possess extremely loyal fan bases who have been waiting a long time to be able to share their adventures in the form of videogames."
