Marvel fighting game possibly in the works at Mortal Kombat's NetherRealm Studios

News of a Marvel fighting game by Mortal Kombat developers NetherRealm has come to light in the form of a rumour by renowned leaker Daniel Richtman. The details are incredibly sparse but it claims the game is already in production for next-gen consoles.

After the disappointment that was Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, it would make sense that Disney would maybe reach out to NetherRealm to make a game based on the Marvel license. After all Mortal Kombat and Injustice, the latter of the two being a DC property and Marvels competitor have been huge successes in recent years. It would also make up for the recent lacklustre effort with the Marvels Avengers game which has only seen more bad press than good.

NetherRealm would make a perfect fit and I'm personally a big a fan of the Mortal Kombat and Injustice games so it would be in perfect hands if this news is true. What do you guys think?
