If your children enjoy swinging from the rafters and everything else, they’re in for a treat that might be easier on your furniture. Set against the iconic backdrop of open-world New York, fans of Miles Morales and Peter Parker can swing into action in this upcoming adventure.

2. Marvel’s Wolverine
Teased at the 2021 PlayStation Showcase, Marvel’s Wolverine is being developed by the talented team at Insomniac Games. The expectations is it will be another PS5 exclusive. While only releasing a teaser trailer so far, we do know the game will be set in the same universe as Marvel’s Spider-Man. We don’t know if either web-slinging hero will make an appearance. The release date remains undisclosed, but it’s certainly a title to watch. Fair warning, a Wolverine game may not be suitable for younger superhero fans, don’t.
3. Untitled Iron Man Game
Tony Stark and his alter-ego Iron Man is one of the most well known and beloved superheroes. With limited video game exposure, the team at Motive Studio along with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy producer, Olivier Proulx, are looking to change that. This philanthropic billionaire should be getting an original story-line that aims to delve into Tony Stark’s intriguing persona and his high-tech adventures. We don’t know what they’re developing yet, but expect to see some impressive iron man suit tech and Tony Stark’s well known sass.
4. Untitled Black Panther Game
Newly formed Cliffhanger Games studio under EA is developing an exciting Wakanda experience. Gamers will have a chance to immerse themselves into T’Challa’s home of Wakanda and fully interactive with the previously hidden world. While readers and viewers experienced glimpses of the hidden land of the Black Panther, this is everyone’s first opportunity to see the rich, vibrant world this Marvel hero calls home.
5. Skydance New Media’s Marvel Game
Wakanda fans have another chance to experience Wakanda through the eyes of T’Challa’s ancestor Azzuri. He is the Black Panther from the 1940s. Former Uncharted director Amy Hennig has taken the lead for Marvel’s next story-driven World War 2 Superhero experience. Azzuri will team up with Steve Rogers’ Captain America in WWII era Paris and Wakanda. This unique narrative will take fans through this dynamic team up, joined by Gabriel Jones and Nanali to round out this team. No gameplay has released yet, but a dive into Marvel history should offer a refreshing break from the modern norm.
