The graphics and cinema look amazing. Thanos as the primary villain, awesome. Movies, games and comic book universes fusing together, mind blowing! No word on a multiplayer mode but the game sure looks like it could support it and support it well. Nintendo did just launch their new online service a few months ago too, fingers crossed.
