‘Iron Man 2′ Video Game Gets Matt Fraction – And New Trailer
Current "Invincible Iron Man" writer Matt Fraction, who is also consulting on next summer's "Iron Man 2," is adding even more ferrous food for thought to fandom's collective diet with a script for SEGA's "Iron Man 2" video game.
Set to debut at this week's San Diego Comic-Con, the game will pit Tony Stark's technology against villains from both the film and beyond -- including armored Russian rival Crimson Dynamo and other tech-based foes. (Titanium Man, please?)
"Iron Man 2 presented me with the opportunity to work with both SEGA and Marvel on creating something wholly unique – a story that exists at the crossroads of the comics I write, the film universe I was lucky enough to be asked to contribute to, and a wholly immerse interactive experience like this game," said Fraction in a press release.
The franchise got off to a rocky start with an initial gaming offering that fans wanted more from. Fortunately, SEGA seems to have listened.
"Iron Man has an undeniably huge fan base, and we really wanted to give them the game they have been waiting for. We spent a lot of time incorporating their concerns and feedback from the first game, as well as coming up with new ideas to take this game to a whole new level," said Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America in an official press release. "Creating a new story with renowned comic book writer Matt Fraction is a huge part of making that happen, and we are incredibly excited to bring fans the game we know they want with Iron Man 2."
Check out a trailer for the game after the jump to see if there's proof in the pudding.
Like its predecessor, "Iron Man 2" is expected to hit pretty much every current generation console next summer. In the meantime, there's plenty of armored action to preview.
