Proulx also worked on the single-player portion of Marvel's Avengers, so he's no stranger to Iron Man. “It’s an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to make a video game based on one of the most iconic Super Heroes in entertainment today,” said Olivier Proulx, Executive Producer.
“We have a great opportunity to create a new and unique story that we can call our own. Marvel is encouraging us to create something fresh. We have a lot of freedom, which is so engaging for the team”. The original story is expected that will focus on the "complex character" and charisma of Tony Stark, and the developers promise players that they will successfully portray the feeling of being in Iron Man's shoes.
EA claims that the Iron Man game marks the beginning of a partnership with Marvel, as it will become the first of several titles that will be the fruit of this collaboration. It is speculated that one of those titles will be a Black Panther game.
