Last week, to everyone’s surprise, it was announced that Amy Hennig and her new studio are currently working on a brand new game in the Marvel Hero Universe. Little information was officially communicated about this new title. However, it could be that a large piece of the puzzle has just been found.
The heroes at the heart of the Marvel game developed by Amy Hennig’s studio have already leaked. And according to this leak, it should be about Ant-Man or the Fantastic Four. The information was revealed indirectly through the Fatman Beyond podcast by American filmmaker Kevin Smith.
Marc Bernardin, co-host of the podcast, is also working on Amy Hennig’s Marvel game. And he revealed his involvement during the final episode of Fatman Beyond. According to him, he’s been working on the game’s story for about a year:
I spent most of the pandemic working with a woman named Amy Hennig. She created, wrote and directed the games Unexplored. They announced this week that the game we are working on will be produced in partnership with Marvel. That’s all I can say about it. But I spent most of a year in the storyline mines imagining a Marvel video game.
Kevin Smith (almost) lets go
Marc Bernardin was therefore careful and did not reveal too much about his project. What happened next made it possible to learn more about this Amy Hennig x Marvel game. As a matter of fact, Kevin Smith said afterward that Fatman Beyond’s cat immediately found out about the game’s license.
According to Ben Hanson, videographer and former producer at Game Informer, the names the cat spawned from Fatman Beyond were Ant-Man and the Fantastic Four. Unfortunately for the curious, neither Kevin Smith nor Marc Bernardin added anything else. Interested parties will have to be satisfied with that for the time being.

Although there are several heroes associated with Ant-Man, this use of the plural is more reminiscent of the Fantastic Four. However, to be sure, you need to be patient.
