Quoted from iceman44:
These teasers are designed to lower expectations and then BOOM they drop the insane full reveal and everybody goes apeshit!
Yes, and the usual insider Pinsiders are saying this is a filler title.
Quoted from desertT1:
I don't buy that. ZY is rumored to be on art. VP of engineering doing the game design. If it was filler, you give it to Joey the intern to design and Skillz, the kid from the local art college to ink it up. If it was originally a JT game, then it's had a detour in the design phase. I don't consider that filler. This theme has a decently long history and some very recent movies in the pop culture arena. I've very curious to see what the (finished) total package looks like.
I hope the supposed insiders are wrong. Gomez is hit and miss as his track record shows with a large body of work. ZY has been a home run. The code will likely depend on which programmer gets the game and to some degree how well the game sells. Superhero games have not sold as well as some other titles in the last several years.
Quoted from TheLaw:
I can't tell what is a just goofing and what is trying to be serious in this thread anymore. Seriously though, you don't think the sales of GOTG, XMEN, and Avengers, for such huge licenses, were not disappointments when looking at ACDC, MET, ST, TRON, and GB sales?
Also, it has been established that Stern has made about 5000 games a year over the last 7 years (averaged out) based on the serial numbers which have been said by former employees to be in sequence. We also know that Stern has boasted that ACDC and MET sold about as many as LOTR and TSPP if not more.
