Ira Rubenstein, Marvel's Executive Vice President of their Global Digital Media Group, announced yesterday at Sony's GamesCom press conference that Marvel video games are going to stop sucking.

"We are not doing movie-based games anymore," said Rubenstein, "Actually, wait -- we are not doing crappy movie-based games anymore. You can quote me on that."

Joystiq had more details about his refreshingly candid comments:

Rubenstein tells us that work on Iron Man 2 has been in process since the first game wrapped. He wasn't involved in the first one, so he asked us not to blame him for that wreck. However, he swears the second one is going to be good. He's also really excited about the Thor game and seems proud with the team working on it. If Wolverine is any indication of future Marvel games, it seems that Rubenstein is doing his best to make sure fans of the comics won't be served watered-down Hollywood entertainment.
