Speculation: Marvel To Buy THQ And Make Video Games In-House

THQ’s in dire straits, financially. Marvel — now a wholly owned division of Disney — has lots and lots of money. Maybe, if one buys the other, they hold hands and make beautiful games together?

That’s what comics culture website Bleeding Cool seems to think. Editor Rich Johnston pieces together comments and business dealings from Marvel, Disney and THQ over the last few months. Linking together Sega’s loss of certain Marvel licences, the cancelled Avengers game and lots of other happenings, he comes up with a pretty believable scenario as to the benefits of Marvel buying THQ. It’s a long read but well worth it. And if this gets me one step closer to being able to play a Power Man & Iron Fist co-op action game, then all the better.
