Superheroes are big business, and Marvel's heroes in particular have enjoyed a very successful series of films in recent years. Riding high on this popularity, Cryptic Studios (maker of the hit online game City of Heroes) and Microsoft Game Studios have unveiled a trailer for their upcoming Marvel Universe Online game.

Cryptic and Microsoft have been very close-mouthed about details of the game, including details about gameplay, but the trailer certainly looks pretty. The teaser shows several Marvel heroes and villains posed like statues.

Among the heroes and villains featured are Wolverine, Cyclops, Nightcrawler and Magneto from the X-Men, the Thing and Doctor Doom from the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Daredevil, Captain America, Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus.
