I don't know if SOE
has any plans to capitalize on the wave of Superman hype sweeping the nerdosphere on account of Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel film. The firm's DC Universe Online
title features the big blue boy scout rather prominently, of course, and the timing seems right if there aren't a bunch of legal stumbling blocks.
SOE has done movie tie-ins with an MMO before, way back in 2005 when its Rage of the Wookiees
expansion added a bunch of Episode III-themed content to Star Wars Galaxies
. Last summer, though, the firm didn't really acknowledge Christopher Nolan's final Batman film in DCUO
, so it may not be in the cards for Supes either.
Regardless of what actually happens, would you like to see appropriate movie tie-in content in certain MMOs? Or do you prefer to keep the properties separate?
