Anyone who's played LEGO Star Wars, Batman or Lord Of The Rings will be more than a tad excited with the recent news: there's a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game set for release this Autumn, to complement the already successful play sets.

The story line is the typical Marvel fare, with Nick Fury enlisting the help of The Hulk, Iron Man, Spider Man, Thor (as well as a huge list of heroes from the Marvel universe) to take on various bad guys intent on destroying, or at least roughing up, the planet Earth. With both Loki and Galactus confirmed as antagonists, it looks like fans are in for a real treat.

TQ Jefferson, Vice President of Games Production for Marvel Entertainment had this to say:

"Fans of both LEGO and Marvel have wanted this game for years, and we’re addressing that demand with more Marvel Universe characters than ever in a console game. If you’re a fan of Spider-Man, the Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy or scores of other Marvel characters, this is the game for you."

We just can't wait to see how much damage The Hulk can do in a landscape made completely out of building blocks.
