DeSanto Slips Into Some Spandex

“Transformers” and “X-Men” producer Tom DeSanto is slipping into some spandex (hold that thought for a moment) and secured rights to NCsoft and Cryptic Studio’s vidgame “City of Heroes” reports Variety.

The project revolves around a group of superheroes who live in Paragon City and must team in order to fight an invasion of aliens known as the Rikti. In the game, players design their own superhero character and pay a monthly fee to battle supervillains, aliens, madmen and other criminals.

The plan is to adapt the massively multiplayer online role-playing game into a live-action feature and then transition it to television in some form.
