Vivendi has inked a 10-year deal with Marvel Comics to produce massively multiplayer online games based in the Marvel universe of more than 4,700 superheroes. Eurogamer would like to officially bagsy Spider-Man at this particular point in time. No returns. The first game is due for release in 2005, and the deal will see Marvel and VU Games splitting revenues generated by subscriptions, product sales and, ulp, in-game advertising. Vivendi promises more details in the coming months.
