No one has the license or even supports it ... so probably not.

Yeah, the people who had the rights to the Marvel characters lost it soon after the game was released. I'm not sure what the story behind it was, but it made for a very short shelf life for the game before it went OOP.

I believe the licence came up for renewal and there was an astronomical increase in cost, so Nexus/FFG gave it the flick.

Understandable, but disappointing nonetheless. MH was a game with great potential. If support had continued, I think we'd still be seeing expansions being released for it.

Thanks for the replies and the info even though they all made me very sad.

The Thor and Iron Man minis looks awesome!

I can't thumb your replies because they have sad, sad news.

Aaaaahhhh. This made my day a little better!

Now I can play Thor in my next game and MH and not have to wait for an expansion that is never going to come.

This is put this game in the forefront of my mind again. I REALLY got to get it on the table soon! I forgot how many different heroes are already in the base game!!! And it's fun too!

Yes, BGG is a trap for us weak-minded blush . Just this month, after watching a video playthrough series, I was "forced" whistle to buy the City expansion for Talisman because of the raised interest.

Sadly, MH has been on the backburner for quite a while (though still close to 100 plays overall), Legendary and Spider-Man giving me my Marvel-fix this month.

Yep,
Unfortunately I can confirm that there are no possibility for an expansion,
Nexus no longer exist ( from its dusts Ares Games and Giochi Uniti are born ) and in addition the license from Marvel is expired, now the costs are incredible higher than before, mainly due to success with movies and other multimedia things.

MH is a great game , unlucky it is also underestimated by many people.
