The superhero genre has taken over the world, over the past decade. Major franchises like Marvel and DC are the leading names in the same. Not just television and cinema, they even reign over the world of video games, as well.

The game’s popularity resulted in the company releasing a spin-off game called Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and announcing the sequel to the first game. Due to their great track record, some fans have asked to see members of Avengers join the universe and make it larger.

Avengers of the Insomniac universe?

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe has continued to get bigger and more popular, many fans have been wondering why we don’t have a AAA video game based on all the characters. Considering the popularity of Avengers and other MCU characters, it would easily sell a lot of copies.

The Vice President and creative director of Marvel Games also weighed in on the topic and noted that such a move would hurt the characters and the company’s overall goals. While speaking to, he stated:

“We have all these different realities. Now they’re all real, and we want to give everyone the freedom to tell their story. We don’t want to say ‘you can’t blow up the moon, because this game over here by another studio needs the moon’. We want to give everyone the freedom and the clear lane to tell their story.”

Many fans agreed with his point as Insomniac Games works best with a lower number of characters. In Marvel’s Spider-Man, we only saw Peter Parker and other characters from his rogue gallery but it allowed the developers to flesh the story out and enhance the gaming experience.

Some have also pointed out fatigue with the MCU, as the studio has been pumping out content like there is no tomorrow, with phase 4 going even harder.
