We're Getting a LEGO Marvel Game, Even Though We Probably Shouldn't Be Getting One of Those

Warner Bros. has swallowed its pride and also probably a lot of money to produce LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.

Here's something that I doubt anyone expected to happen. Today, LEGO video game publisher WB Games has announced LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, a blocky, kid-friendly take on the Marvel Comics universe, featuring all the heroes and villains you've seen on screen so regularly over these last several years, except made out of blocks.

Why is that weird? Well, for starters, WBI's parent company also owns DC Comics, otherwise known as Marvel's chief rival over, like, all of the decades they've coexisted. So, basically, this is all very peculiar.

But hey, at least it's positive peculiar, right? If nothing else, it just goes to show that with the right amount of money, heart, money, determination, and also money, no LEGO adaptation is impossible.

This particular adaptation, by the way, features an original story with Thor, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and a host of others as they attempt to thwart foes like Loki and Galactus. It, like most LEGO games, is coming to myriad different platforms, including...*deep breath*...the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, the PC, the Wii U, the DS, the 3DS, and the PlayStation Vita. Maybe even other platforms, if we get more platform announcements this year.
