Actor Milo Ventimiglia became a household name as Peter Petrelli in NBC’s hit TV series, “Heroes.” He parlayed that fame to the big screen, playing Sylvester Stallone’s son Rocky Balboa. These days, the actor is all about the Marvel comic book universe. He’s providing the voice of Logan in the new animated Wolverine TV series. And he’s bringing a brand new mutant to life in Activision’s X-Men Legacy video game. The actor talks about his new role in the video below.
Ventimiglia was at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 with Activision on a panel that focused on the new Marvel video games Spider-Man: Edge of Time and X-Men Destiny.
Additionally, The Hangover II star Jamie Chung and “Friday Night Lights” star Scott Porter play Aimi Yoshidi and Adrian Luca in X-Men Destiny. The new game expands on the Marvel comic book franchise and takes a new direction.
X-Men Destiny allows gamers to control the fate of one of three brand-new mutant characters forced to choose between saving humanity or ensuring its destruction. Players are able to customize the path, powers and development of their character and decide their role in the mutant cause alongside, or against, some of Marvel’s greatest X-Men franchise characters. Their mutant skills will evolve through a unique upgrade system that allows them to choose how they will mix and match the powers from their favorite X-Men and Brotherhood characters, then engage in fast and furious combat against a variety of opponents bent on defending their beliefs.
X-Men fans will also be able to take home X-Men: First Class on Blu-ray and DVD on September 9.
