Mortal Kombat Developers Have Had Discussions With Marvel Regarding A Fighting Game

Can you imagine Thanos’ fatality?

NetherRealm Studios makes some of the best selling, most loved games on the market—and it does so while making fighting games, a genre that is otherwise famously hard to crack with the mainstream market. The studio has had the privilege of working on Mortal Kombat, but also DC properties, thanks to Injustice.

And apparently, they also considered making a fighting game based on Marvel properties once, as NetherRealm’s Ed Boon revealed in a rapid-fire interview with Game Informer.

“We would love to make like a Marvel fighting game, or Marvel vs. DC I think would be the coolest,” Boon said, though he also sheepishly added that he “probably shouldn’t talk about it”.

A Marvel vs DC game would obviously be the dream, and would end all fanboy wars in one fell swoop (though the licensing quagmire it would be is a nightmare to even imagine). But even a regular Marvel fighting game made in the style of Mortal Kombat and Injustice would be amazing to see.

It seems like it may not be happening, since if it was, you’d assume Boon would be under contractual obligations to not mention it prior to an official announcement. For now, all we can do is dream about it.
