Here are some game descriptions:

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, a new third-person action video game featuring Marvel Entertainment’s legendary super-powered foursome, is scheduled for a June 2007 simultaneous release with Twentieth Century Fox/Marvel Entertainment’s highly anticipated movie sequel. In the game and the film, Marvel’s first family of superheroes, The Fantastic Four, meet their greatest challenge yet when the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As the Silver Surfer races around the globe wreaking havoc, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben must unravel the mystery of the Silver Surfer and confront the surprising return of their mortal enemy, Dr. Doom, before all hope is lost. The game is based on both the popular comic book series, as well as the movie sequel. It is being developed by 2K’s Visual Concepts studio and Seven Studios for next-generation consoles, current generation consoles and handheld systems.

Developed by Starbreeze Studios, The Darkness is a next-generation, first-person action game that features an immersive and gritty storyline written in collaboration with famed comic book writer and co-creator of The Darkness comic, Paul Jenkins (Civil War: Frontline). Set in the dark and seedy underbelly of New York City, players experience the role of mafia hitman Jackie Estacado, who is the heir to "The Darkness," an ancient power that awakens within him on his 21st birthday. Jackie must use traditional weapons, as well as learn to command his terrible new powers, to seek revenge on his own crime family. The Darkness, based on the popular comic of the same name published by Top Cow Publishing, ships spring 2007 for Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.
