Marvel Teases Amy Hennig’s Captain America and Black Panther Game
Late last year, Marvel and Skydance New Media announced that they were collaborating on a new video game to be led by Amy Hennig, one of the primary writers and directors for the Uncharted and Jak and Daxter games. At the time, Henning declined to share what the game was about. But during today’s Disney and Marvel video game announcements at D23 Expo, it was revealed that the currently untitled game will feature Captain America and Black Panther.
Hennig previously hinted that the game “epitomizes all the action, mystery and thrills of the pulp adventure genre that I adore and lends itself perfectly to an interactive experience.” And the trailer appears to back up the pulp setting by placing the action in Paris and Wakanda during World War II. There are also ominous hints about the threat of Hydra lurking in the background.
There is actually a precedent for Cap and Black Panther teaming up in World War II. The 2010 miniseries, Captain America/Black Panther: Flags of Our Fathers, was a previously untold adventure that paired Cap with T’Challa’s grandfather, King Azzuri, the Black Panther of his era. But according to Marvel, Hennig’s game will be an original story.
In addition to playing as Cap and Black Panther/Azzuri, gamers will also be able to step into the roles of Gabriel Jones and Nanali. Jones is one of the Howling Commandos, while Nanali is a leader for Wakanda’s WWII spy network.
For now, there’s no gameplay reveal. This is just a cinematic teaser that doesn’t even have an official title yet. Still, it’s an intriguing glimpse at what’s to come.
