Welcome to the Marvel Universe Online community. So far very little about the game has been announced, but here's what we do know:

It's being developed jointly by Cryptic Studios (creators of City of Heroes/Villains), Marvel Entertainment, and Microsoft.
It's going to be on XBox 360 and Windows Vista.
No release date yet.
A cinematic trailer has been released: http://www.gamespot.com/news/6158912.html

And, ah, that's about it. Let the wild speculation begin!

Let's just hope Sony does a better job with the Marvel franchise than they did with Star Wars.

That's DC that's using Sony. Marvel is using our old friends at Cryptic.

I think that *if* this actually works out well it will be a great game.

But I'm really feeling rather pessimistic about it so far. Between Jack's gushing over the way it will be strongly tied into the Earth-616 continuity and kept up to date (Really? I seriously doubt that will work/be a good idea) and the whole "But it's *got* to have an economy to be popular, 'cause WoW has one!!!1!1" And I'm not a big fan of the console/PC interactive idea either.

It could turn out great, but I'm expecting it to be mediocre to utter crap, if it actually gets done.

I'm with you on the tepid feelings but I can't help but drool at the concept. Crossing my fingers here.
