None of the details have been confirmed, but the future of the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game is starting to come into focus. It’s a beautiful thing.
Jessica Alba flinging forcefields with the Fantastic Four. Halle Berry zapping opponents with mutant Weather Witch lightning bolts. Maybe even Eva Mendes smoldering as Ghost Rider’s girlfriend.
It seems we will soon have spectacular cardboard incarnations of our favorite Hollywood luminaries to grace our gaming experience. This will be a brand new thing for those of us that are accustomed to trolls and dragons and sorcerers. It will be an invitation to the wider world audience, most of whom are totally familiar with Marvel’s magnificent stable of superheroes only through the movies. It is an unexpected development that is making us shuffle our expectations and retool our plans for the future.
We still haven’t absorbed all the implications, and we are anxiously awaiting more information about what other smashing surprises lie in store. Very exciting times.
