Yes. That is Red Skull as Captain America. Yes, it's pretty awesome. Yes, you get to see it if you buy Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet. The game goes on sale November 16th (tomorrow.) It's available for Wii, XBox, Playstation, and Nintendo DS. We got a chance to play it at New York Comic Con this year, and by we I mean Rania (the only one of us that has any real "gaming" experience.) Since she plays Xbox, that's the platform she tried out.
I should note here that I shot video of this event, as well as a cool interview with one of the game's creators, but I'm an idiot and didn't have the microphone on or my filter to the right setting. So everything was blurry and silent. HOWEVER, I will state that not only is it hilarious to hear a tiny cute Hulk scream "SMASH!" every thirty seconds, it was also extremely amusing to watch Rania try and figure out how to make Iron Man fly. That is... when she remembers that Iron Man can fly. (First, he had to fall down a hole about 10 times before she was gently reminded by one of the "game handlers" that Iron Man can fly.)
But enough picking on Rania. If you'd like to see the trailer for the game (which is actually kind of funny, too,) more stills, and a brief review of game play, hit the jump link. And make sure to check out the game yourself.
Apparently, some movie with a lot of hype starring some famous former drug addict comes out this week. People seem to like it, and are excited about it. Whatever. I'm not disappointed at all that I'm not going to get to see it until next week. I don't like the Fascist douchebag anyway. I'll just watch this Incredible Hulk trailer over at the Apple website. Then maybe get a better glimpse of how awful Hulk and Abomination look in the trailer images at Blog@Newsarama. Aside from the fact that I think Edward Norton is absolutely perfect casting for Bruce Banner, this reboot seems like more of a downgrade from the 2003 film. The trailer barely even utilizes the theme music from the TV show, which is the only thing to be really excited about in this adaptation.
