Marvel-ous Sega, Wright Gone Wrong?

Marvel and Sega have inked deals for videogame spin-offs of several upcoming Marvel movies. The games will be released day-and-date with the films.

The deal now includes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America and Thor. Should the greenlight never come for the Captain or the Norse God, the games will, apparently, still go ahead.

Rights to Avengers, Nick Fury and Ant Man films haven't been inked yet - which suggests Thor and Captain America are higher priority movies for Marvel right now. I fear we may never get to see Edgar Wright's Ant Man movie, this perhaps stokes the flames of that fear.

Will Wright's next film be his reteaming with Pegg and Frost? Will it be Scott Pilgrim? Them? Something completely different? Perhaps the box office for Hot Fuzz in the US this weekend will decide.
