Marvel To Have A MMOG?

It's still just a rumor at this point, but according to a little story over at the Hollywood reporter (Yahoo), Sony/Verant (you know, the folks behind EverQuest) are looking to making a massively multiplayer game based on your favorite Marvel superheroes. Word:
Flush with the success of its MMO game "EverQuest," Sony Online Entertainment has been in negotiations with Marvel Entertainment, intent on creating an MMO universe filled with some of Marvel's 4,700 superheroes, including Spider-Man, the X-Men, Daredevil, the Hulk and Blade.

Although Korean video game publisher NCSoft is developing "City of Heroes," an unlicensed MMO that will let players create their own superheroes, Sony Online Entertainment vp marketing Scott McDaniel said an MMO coming from a Sony/Marvel partnership would have a broader appeal than the NCSoft game.

Sony Online Entertainment also is interested in turning "The Terminator" movie franchise into an MMO and had spoken with the Wachowski brothers about an MMO based on "The Matrix" movies, though Warner Bros. Pictures eventually granted that license to game makers Monolith and Eon.
Not sure how well a title like this would do, but could be rather intersting to say the least (for a few months anyhow).
