Marvel isn't doing enough to cash in on the gaming market, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.
Witness Injustice: Gods Among Us, a top-selling combat video game from Time Warner (NYSE: TWX ) that features DC Comics characters that topped NPD's sales charts in April and May. Why should investors care? Video gaming is a rich, multi-platform opportunity. For example, a tie-in iOS edition of Injustice feeds the console version -- and vice versa -- creating multiple revenue opportunities for Warner and DC.
Marvel has no equivalent, and with Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS ) recently shuttering LucasArts and handing Star Wars game development to Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA ) , it may be some time before a comparable title comes to market.
In the meantime, Tim says, look for Time Warner to profit from Injustice and the forthcoming Batman: Arkham Origins. Both should earn more than enough revenue to give Time Warner stock a kick over the next year.
Of course, Warner is only one of four significant opportunities in this genre. Interested in learning about the other three?
