The Amazing Spider-Man
Doing The Things A Stan Lee Can
Activision‘s upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man video game will give you the opportunity to have comic book creator, and legend, Stan Lee as a playable character. The game will be released on June 26, a week ahead of the film’s July 3rd opening, but it will serve as a sequel to the Amazing Spider-Man movie.
If you pre-order the game now for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 at Amazon.com you will receive a special mission where you’ll play as Stan Lee, the co-creator of Spider-Man and many other marvel characters. This Stan Lee will web-sling his way through Manhattan in a race to collect pages of a comic book script. And all the while his banter will punctuate the gameplay for true believers. A “special surprise” to celebrate Spider-Man’s 50th anniversary awaits fans who finish the mission.
While Amazon has Stan Lee, gamers who pre-order The Amazing Spider-Man from Gamestop retail stores will unlock a playable Rhino character. In “The Rhino Challenge,” players will rampage through Manhattan, destroying everything in their way.
Hopefully the initial choice between the two is all that we’ll be able to get. Usually pre-order exclusives become available as down-loadable content later on.
