Captain America and Black Panther to team up in WW2 game from Uncharted creator

The Amy Hennig Marvel game is being revealed tonight and rumours point to it being a team-up between Captain America and Black Panther.

As part of D23’s Disney and Marvel video game showcase later today, there’ll be a reveal for a new Marvel game that’s in development at Skydance New Media, aka the studio set up by Uncharted creator Amy Hennig.

Very little is known about it, but previous speculation suggested that it will star the Fantastic Four, since it will be an ‘ensemble’ game. As in, it’ll focus on multiple heroes, not just one.

Ahead of the reveal, however, a new rumour is claiming this is not the case and it will instead star two Marvel heroes fans of the movies will already be very familiar with: Captain America and Black Panther.

Interestingly, the rumour says that the game is set during the Second World War and sees the pair teaming up to fight the villainous Hydra organisation.

This may sound like an odd pairing at first, but this description also matches a 2010 storyline from the comics called Black Panther/Captain America: Flags of our Fathers.

Given the time period, you wouldn’t be playing as T’Challa, the modern version of the Black Panther seen in the comics and MCU, since he wasn’t born yet. If the game is anything like the aforementioned comics, you’d instead play as his grandfather.

As for what has been officially said about the game, it’s a ‘narrative-driven, blockbuster action adventure game, featuring a completely original story and take on the Marvel Universe.’

You won’t have to wait much longer to find out more. The Disney and Marvel games showcase kicks off this evening at 9pm BST.

It’s also slated to feature updates for Midnight Suns, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, and the recently released Disney Dreamlight Valley. Whether upcoming Star Wars games, such as Jedi: Survivor, will be featured though is unclear at this time.
