Check out footage above from the cancelled Avengers video game that was written by Brian Michael Bendis and meant to be released around the time of the first Avengers movie based on the Marvel Comics Secret Invasion event storyline.

The game was a first person shooter that saw The Avengers assembling against the likes of the Skrulls. Over 200 people had invested 18 months into the game, but the studio behind the game went belly-up, and THQ pulled the plug.

Bendis previously offered about the game: "The one that haunts me is that I was writing the Avengers game - the THQ game that got canceled. I have a copy of it at the house, and it was a great looking game. It was a fully immersed Avengers game and the world will never see it. It was a point of view game, which was different than most super hero games, but you could play the game from the POV of Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor, and you could play the game co-op with four of your friends, so you could build an Avengers team and unlock players."
