Skydance Recent Media has teamed up with Marvel for an unnamed game; new rumors suggest the project is related to Ant-Man or the Fantastic Four.
New evidence implies that either Ant-Man or the Fantastic Four are at the heart of Amy Hennig’s Skydance New Media’s undisclosed Marvel game. Last week, Skydance launched the project, promising a “narrative-driven” action-adventure with an original story.
Since Uncharted creator Amy Hennig is now in charge of Skydance’s freshly created production team, the internet soon narrowed down the types of characters who would best suit her storytelling approach. In her comments following the announcement, Hennig mentioned the action, excitement, and pulp adventure aspects that dominate much of the vast Marvel universe. These remarks seemed to hint at what the studio might have up its sleeve in the future. It didn’t take long for fan ideas to suggest the Fantastic Four as a possible subject for the forthcoming Marvel game. According to the most recent revelation in the continuing mystery, such theories may not be too far off the mark.
Marc Bernardin, co-host and scriptwriter of Fatman Beyond, revealed his work on the Skydance Marvel project during the November 2 broadcast. According to Kevin Smith, the stream’s chat managed to identify the subject material right away, according to Game Informer Producer Ben Hanson. “The two plausible alternatives were Ant-Man and Fantastic Four,” Hanson added on Twitter.
On the new Fatman Beyond, Marc Bernardin reveals he's a writer on Amy Hennig's new Marvel game. Kevin Smith says chat guessed the game immediately. The two viable guesses were Ant-Man and Fantastic Four.

No one associated with the secret Marvel game, including Bernardin, has verified or refuted the persistent rumors and speculation. As a result, no matter how plausible the Ant-Man and Fantastic Four theories are, they should not be taken at face value for the time being. The issue now is when Marvel and Skydance New Media will reveal more concrete facts about the project. Given that the studio is still in its early stages, waiting for more information could be lengthy.
The Amy Hennig-directed game is the latest in Marvel Games’ series of AAA interactive experiences. Midnight Suns from XCOM creator and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine from Insomniac Games have been released in the recent few months by the entertainment giant’s gaming branch. The Firaxis venture, originally set to commence in March 2022, will instead begin late next year. Insomniac’s Spider-Man sequel is slated for release in 2023, but no date has been set for the Wolverine-starring adventure.
Marvel and Skydance have yet to reveal any specific specifics about their collaboration.
