Video Games: The Future of Comic Book Adaptation?

The six-minute video game trailer embedded above animates an epic battle between some of the greatest heroes from comic book history–watch Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and scores of other heroes battle their worst enemies in a single place.

The trailer is for DC Universe Online, a massive role-playing game launching in November. What do you think this means for comic book storytelling?

Here’s more from io9: “That’s as epic a battle between dudes with capes as I’ve ever seen. Wonder Woman, especially, comes off like the hero no one’s willing to make a feature film about. Makes you wonder why videogame cinematics can achieve a level of pure drama and sheer cool that movies rarely approach.”
